GARLIC
An essential ingredient in so many types of cuisine, a kitchen
should never be without garlic. You can get garlic in jars, but it
doesn't have the same flavor as fresh garlic.
When buying fresh garlic, press the outer edges to make sure they
are firm and solid, if not the garlic may be old and beginning to
deteriorate.
Garlic has a very intense flavor and odor (it's even reported to keep
vampires away!), but it gets milder when cooked. Roasted garlic*, in fact, becomes
quite mild and can be used straight as a topping for bread and other foods. Elephant
garlic has a much milder flavor than the regular garlic most commonly sold in markets.
Garlic burns easily when being cooked in oil. Cook at most until golden brown, for after
that it develops a bitter flavor.
1. Garlic is only to keep vampires away. ___
2. Elephants eat garlic. ___
3. Golden brown is a type of garlic. ___
4. Garlic in Jars has the same flavor as fresh garlic. ___
5. Garlic burns easily when you fry it in oil. ___

The main idea of the article is
a) To know different types of garlic and show some recipes.
b) To give tips about cooking with garlic.
c) To introduce garlic in the cuisine and the uses it has.
d) To show garlic is essential for cooking and describe it.

READING
The History of the Internet
The 1990s saw great changes in the way people communicate. People could send mail
without going to the post office, and go shopping without leaving home. Words like e-
mail and download became part of peoples vocabulary. The cause of this great
change was the internet.
The idea for the internet began in the early 1960s in the United States. The Department
of Defense wanted to connect their computers together in order to share private
information. In 1969, the ARPAnet (an early form of the internet) first connected
computers at four American universities. One computer successfully sent information to
another. In 1972, scientists shared ARPAnet with the world. They created a way to
send person-to-person messages using ARPAnet. This was the beginning of e-mail.
Over the next few years, there was a lot of progress made in the world of computing,
but most people were not using the internet. Then in the 1980s, personal computers
became more common. In the early1990s, two important things happened: the birth of
the World Wide Web in 1991, and the creation of the first Web browser in 1993. The
Web made it easier to find information on the internet, and to move from place to place
using links. The Web and browser made it possible to see information as a website
with pictures, sound, and words.
Today, millions of people connect to the internet to send e-mail, visit web sites, or store
information on serves. Computers are now an important part of our lives and are
changing how we learn, work, shop and communicate.

Ejercicio de lectura:
7. Lee el siguiente artculo acerca de Bjorn Borg, uno de los ms grandes
jugadores de tenis de los aos recientes.

Bjorn Borg, nickname Ice Borg, was born on 6th June 1956 in the Swedish city of
Sodertaljie. His father gave him a tennis racket when he was nine years old and he
won his first tournament at the age of 11. As a junior, he won every championship
over the next four years. He then became the youngest ever player to represent his
country in the Davis Cup. He was just 15 years old.
Borg dominated international tennis in the late 1970s and 1980s. Even though he
never played in the Australian Open and never won the US Open, Borg won 11 singles
championships in Grand Slam events. He won the Wimbledon title five years in a row,
from 1976 to 1980, and lost to John McEnroe in 1981. He also won the French Open a
record six times.
Borg married Romanian tennis player Mariana Simionescu in Bucharest on 24th of July
1980. The wedding was the social event of the year and in 1983, at the age of 27,
Borg officially retired to focus on his business interest. He didnt give up playing
tennis, however, and attempted a comeback in 1991, still using his wooden racket.
But the tennis world had changed, players had new, lighter, graphite rackets, which
were much faster, and Borg couldnt compete, so he stopped playing tennis
completely.
Although he is no longer involved in the world of tennis, Borg will always be
remembered as one the greatest tennis players of all time.

contesta las preguntas que te hace. Usa el email de Janet como modelo.

Hi Sandra,
My friend Tonya from Scotland came to visit me last weekend. It was a
big surprise! She turned up at my house on Saturday morning.
Tonya is a very special friend. I met her when I was four years old. We
were in the same class at school for ten years and we always went to
the cinema and to the shops together. Then I moved to Cambridge with
my family last year. I email her every day and speak to her on my
mobile at the weekend. We have the same interests - she loves dancing
and riding her bike. She also likes playing football but I just like
watching it on TV. She is a lot of fun.
Have you got a special friend? Where did you meet? Do you like the
same things?
Best wishes,
Janet

History of Cell Phones. A cellular phone is a wireless phone
that most people these days communicate with. It seems that
not to long ago, people were still using house phones. Now
little kids have cell phones. In 1843 a man by the name of
Michael Faraday studied to see if space could conduct
electricity. This man led to the cell phone development. In the
year of 1865, Doctor Mahlon Loomis was the first person to
communicate through wireless atmosphere. He came up with the idea of transmitting
and receiving messages through atmosphere as a conductor. Loomis was awarded
50,000 for his research.
In 1973 Martin Copper came up with Motorola. He took the project and let the people of
New York see it. In 1977 the first cell phone was made in Chicago. When it first came
out 2000 people were given a free trial. Then other places started to make cell phones.
When the cell phone first came out they were huge. The people did not know how to
make the phone any more compact. In 1988 the big company's started to make cell
phones. There were over 54 places all over the world.

We left home early in the morning, but our flight was delayed and we didnt arrive at
Heathrow until late in the afternoon. We were really tired, but we took a bus to our
hotel because taxis in London are very expensive. When we got to the hotel, we had
a rest and then went out to explore the city. We had a quick sandwich in a small caf
and then headed for Oxford Street. I bought a jacket and some T-shirts. I wanted to
buy a bag as well, but I couldnt find one that I liked. In the evening, we ate in an
Italian restaurant and went to a typical English pub in Covent Garden. We met some
really nice English people and had so much fun that we didnt get back to the hotel
until very late!

We got up late and had breakfast in a caf. I had a full English breakfast, and then I

Cathedral. In the afternoon, we had a pizza and then took a bus to the train station.
Travelling by bus in London is a great way to see the sights. We caught an evening

A
The weather will be just great then so dont forget to bring your swimsuit with you!
It isnt very hot now but itll be much warmer when you come. Trust me, itll be hot
enough to go to the beach!
B
I was really happy to get your letter! Good luck with your school exams! Its almost
summer and I want you to spend your holidays with me on Oaxaca. Let me tell you a
few things before you get here.
C
I think thats all you need to know for now! Im really looking forward to receiving
your next letter telling me when youre coming to Oaxaca.
D
Firstly, the best way to get here is, of course, by plane. It is the quickest and most
comfortable way to travel. The only problem is that it is more expensive than other
means of transport. If you book early enough, youll get a better price.

Many kisses,
Laura
