Do the preparation task first. Then watch the video and do the exercise. Remember you can read the transcript at any time.

Task 1

Check your understanding: true or false






It is just a filler :)

I am vegetarian and I always prefer dishes full of fresh vegetables, nuts, and seeds.
It was striking when you see how astronomers have a snack in their space travel.

when I was a child I dreamed of being many professions, however, being an astronaut was not one of them, or at least that what I remember. Regarding eating snacks, I do eat seeds, fruits which are always fresh and affordable, and salads -for sure- usually, I make a green salad and yogurt ones due to the ingredients accessibility and affordability.
I wish I can earn more money so I can afford things like nuts because it's very expensive in my country.

Never think of being one but it looks so cool when she caught that nut when it floating. I love yogurt and nuts as snack.

being an astronaut is not the perfect job for me, i mean i don't like to be in one place for a loàng time, but i would love to visit the space one day, seeing the view from there is a must.

my favorite snack is dehydrated fruits

Being an astrounaut is one of my dream when I was in elementary school. And the special power bar looks delicious to me.

Me to when I was child I dreamed to be an astronaut. My favourite snacks are chips and chocolate bars.

Be an astronaut was one of my favorite future jobs when I was a kid, But now I don't think I can do it. seems to be very interesting, but be in a small place for a long period of time is like to be a prisoner of your own desitions. Well, my favorite snack is healthy power bars.
