When I first entered university, my aunt, who is an English professor, gave me a
new English dictionary. I was 36 to see that it was an English-English dictionary, also known as a monolingual dictionary. 37 it was a dictionary
intended for non-native learners, none of my classmates had one. 38 , to be
honest, I found it extremely 39 to use at first. I would look up words in the dictionary and 40
not fully understand the meanings. I was used to the 41 bilingual dictionaries,
in which the words are 42 both in English and Chinese. I really wondered why my aunt 43 to make things so difficult for me. Now, after studying English at university for three years, I 44 that monolingual dictionaries are 45 in learning a foreign language.
As I found out, there is, 46 , often no perfect equivalence(对应)between
two 47 in two languages. My aunt even goes so far as to 48 that a
Chinese “equivalent” can never give you the 49 meaning of a word in
English! 50 , she insisted that I read the definition(定义)of a word in a
monolingual dictionary 51 I wanted to get a better understanding of its meaning. 52 , I have come to see what she meant.
Using a monolingual dictionary for learners has helped me in another important
way. This dictionary uses only a(n) 53 number of words, around 2,000, in its definitions. When I read these definitions, I am 54 exposed to(接触)the basic
words and learn how they are used to explain objects and ideas. 55 this, I can
express myself more easily in English.

In 1955, a man named Raymond Kroc entered a partnership with two brothers named McDonald. They opened a popular restaurant in California which sold food that was easy to prepare and serve quickly. Hamburgers, French fries, and cold drinks were the main food there. Kroc opened similar eating places under the same name, “McDonald’s”, and they were an instant success. He later took over the company, and today it is one of the most famous and successful “fast-food” in America and round
Why was his idea successful? Probably the most important reason was that his timing was right. In the 1950s, most married women stayed home to keep house and take care of their children. In the 1960s, many women returned to the workplace. This meant that they had less time or energy to prepare meals, so they spent more on “ TV dinners ” and fast-food restaurants. Single parents also have little time to spend in the kitchen. People living alone also depend on this type of food, since cooking for one is often more trouble than it is worth.
Fast-food is not part of the diet of all Americans. Another trend of the 1960s, sometimes called the back-to-nature movement influenced many people to avoid food that was packaged or processed(处理). This preference for natural food continued to
From the success of Raymond Kroc’s fast-food business, we can say that social
economic trends influence where and what we eat.
