Answer Key

Reading: A Trip on the Orient Express


Tomorrow, we are taking the Orient Express to Venice. We will
board a train at Victoria Station at around eight oclock. The train
departs from the station at a quarter to eleven in the morning.
We will have brunch on the train. After crossing the English
Channel, we will change trains and board the brown and white
Orient Express train. We will have dinner while we are traveling
to Paris. We will arrive in Paris at about a quarter past nine in
the evening, but we will not have time to leave the train.
We will sleep in our compartment on the train. When we get up the next day, we will have
breakfast in our cabin, while we are traveling through the Swiss Alps. We will arrive in Innsbruck,
Austria, at about a quarter to twelve and leave about a half-hour later. In the afternoon, after
lunch, we will travel through the Italian Dolomites. The staff will serve afternoon tea as we are
going over the Brenner Pass. We will arrive in Venice at 5:55 p.m.

Condominium living
In the United States, certain kinds of apartments are sometimes called condominiums
or condos, for short. Each condo is owned separately, but common areas like the lobby,
exercise room, or swimming pool are owned by the condominium association. Each
owner pays a fee to cover the cost of the common areas. The owners either live in their
condo or rent it out to other people.

E
 rn Rubik invented the Rubiks Cube in Hungary in 1974. A Hungarian company made and sold the first
Magic Cubes in 1977. In the same year, the Ideal Toy Corporation bought the cube. They named it Rubiks
Cube. Rubiks Cube is the worlds best-selling toy of all time, with over 300 million sold since 1977. Today,
theres a World Cube Association that organizes many speed cubing competitions around the world, and there
are many websites for solving the puzzle. They also come in many shapes, colors, and sizes.
H
ula hoops are big rings made of plastic. People playing with the hoops twirl them around their waist, arms,
or neck. The hula hoop fad began in the late 1950s in Australia. There children twirled bamboo hoops, but
the toy was so popular that the Toltoys Company began making them from plastic. The American company,
Wham-O, made the toy internationally famous when they began marketing their hula hoops in 1958. Wham-O
sold over 100 million hoops in less than two years. Today, hula hoops come in many colors and sizes, and
some even light up.
T
 amagotchi is a digital pet game created by Akihiro Yoi and Aki Maita. The Bandai Company
sold the first Tamagotchis in 1996 in Japan. The name tamagotchi means egg-watch. The story
behind the game is, Tamagotchis are eggs from another planet, and their Earth parents must
take care of them until they grow up. If players dont take care of the eggs, they can get sick or
die. Between 1996 and 2010, Bandai sold over 76 million Tamagotchis. Today, the characters
appear on gaming systems such as Nintendo DS and the companys Tama Town website.
