Lesson 16

Text A

                                     The Charcoal1 Pit
    Erika was worried. Her restaurant was losing customers. The new restaurant across the street now had more customers than she did. She had even seen some of her own customers going to eat at The Charcoal Pit. What was she going to do?
    One thing she could do was revise her menu. Maybe not everyone wanted hamburgers. She might add omelets and casseroles. The menu might help.
    Perhaps the decor of her restaurant was dated. She could redecorate the place. Erika decided2 to consult an interior3 decorator who could give her some new ideas. A face-lift for Burger Haven4 would certainly lift her spirits.
    In fact, she felt better after thinking of some improvements. Erika would fight to make her restaurant the most popular one in town.

7. Read the following passage once. Underline the key words while reading and retell the story to your partner.

    When I looked out the window and saw the snow drift in the driveway, I thought to myself that I should never have gotten out of bed. I had been making preparatioris for more than two days for a large dinner party to bc held that night and knew that several of the people I was expecting to come would be calling to cancel if the snow continued much longer. I called upstairs to tell Jerry to look out the window. Jerry heard me and quickly got out of bed. He knew that the weather people had been predicting snow. Now it had really come. To Jerry, two or three inches of fresh snow would be just what was needed to make the ski trip a big success.
