The Reading / Listening - Level 1

A McDonald's restaurant will soon offer all-you-can-eat French fries. It will open in July. McDonald's called it the restaurant "of the future" because of many new features. The new location will have armchairs and a large play space for children. Customers will also be able to order food from waiting staff and choose their own fillings. The restaurant owner said: "There are hundreds of different choices to build the burger of your dreams."



There have been many recent changes at McDonald's. The new boss has tried many things to make more profit. Some of these include an all-day breakfast menu and touch-screen ordering. People have different views about the all-you-can-eat fries. Health campaigners say it will create more obesity. They say McDonald's should have healthier food.
