Rob: Hello, I’m Rob, welcome to 6 Minute English. With me in the studio today is Feifei. Hello Feifei.
Feifei: Hi Rob.
Rob: In today’s programme we’re discussing something that some people enjoy, some people can’t stop doing and others just find disgusting. I am of course talking about smoking. In several countries, including the UK, there is a smoking ban in public places – in other words it’s against the law to smoke in places such as railway stations and cafes. And it’s soon to be banned in a country where smoking is a popular habit. Today we’ll be looking at words and phrases to do with smoking but, as usual, we need to start with a question and this is for you to answer Feifei.
Rob: According to figures from the World Lung Foundation, the people of which country consume the most cigarettes per person?
Feifei: I think I’ll go for answer a, China.
Rob: Ok, well let’s find out if you are right at the end of the programme. We are talking about smoking cigarettes today. I think many of us know about the health risks of lighting up – that’s another way of saying smoking a cigarette.
Feifei: Yes. The World Health Organisation says smoking eventually kills half the people that do it. So it’s no surprise that we hear about more smoking bans being implemented – or put in place.
