  1. Assignment 1: Before watching the program read the following words and translate them.

    She much rather be at home
    food groups
    plateful
    She could eat us both under the table
    an active life
    it's the formative years that count
    in the genes
    to smother children
    to make children overly secure
    to keep the compassion
    UNICEF
    a charity/fundraiser event
    Ambassador
    worst affected area
    to receive aid
    hand-to-mouth nightmare
    a joint-venture
    Audrey Hepburn children's fund
    a full-fledge operation
    a colon operation
    conventional medicine
    confirmation
    on face value
    a twig has grown into an oak tree
    grave
    extraordinary
    to take it for granted
