The Reading / Listening - Level 0

A McDonald's restaurant will soon have all-you-can-eat French fries. McDonald's called it the restaurant "of the future". It will have armchairs and a play space for children. Customers can order food from their table and choose their own fillings. The owner said people can build the burger of their dreams.



The new boss of McDonald's has tried many things to make more profit. These include an all-day breakfast menu and touch-screen ordering. However, health campaigners say all-you-can-eat fries will make people fatter. They say McDonald's should have healthier food. One customer will go to McDonald's more often for the fries.
