This is a great reading comprehension to use when completing a "food" unit. There are a lot of cognates but it is challenging enough that the students learn new vocabulary. I read it out loud to the class and have them take notes on the side. They summarize the 5 reasons at the end in English. My more advanced classes answer in Spanish and then give me an additional reason to eat with their family. It is just the right length that you can do it in less than a period. This is great practice for the proficiency exam.
