Exercise and get a free ticket - level 2

Mexico is a country with the second highest rate of obesity. The government says that around 37 million Mexicans are obese.

The government wants to help these obese people – it put 30 health stations in 21 Metrobus stations in Mexico City. When somebody steps in front of the station, it tells the person to do 10 squats. While you exercise, the station gives you some advice on how to live a healthy life. When you’re finished with the squats, the station gives you a free ticket!

Experts say that so many people in Mexico are obese because of unhealthy food and drinks.

Difficult words: rate (a number), squat (when you get down by bending the knees), advice (a piece of information which can help you).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.

Would you do 10 squats for a free ticket?
