Reading Section Passage 2 (more difficult)

Read the following passage and answer the questions below.


Sleep is an essential part of our daily routine, and its quality can significantly impact our overall well-being. Adequate sleep promotes physical and mental health, while insufficient or poor-quality sleep can lead to various problems.

One of the key factors that affect sleep quality is the sleep environment. Creating a conducive sleep environment can greatly enhance our ability to fall asleep and stay asleep throughout the night. Here are some tips to improve your sleep environment:

1.  Darkness: Ensure your bedroom is dark or has minimal light exposure. Light can interfere with the production of melatonin, a hormone that regulates sleep.

2.  Noise: Minimize noise disruptions by using earplugs or employing white noise machines. Silence or a consistent, soothing sound can aid in promoting restful sleep.

3.  Temperature: Maintain a comfortable temperature in your bedroom. Cooler temperatures (around 18-20 degrees Celsius) are generally more conducive to sleep.

4.  Comfortable bedding: Invest in a supportive mattress and comfortable pillows and blankets. The right bedding can greatly impact your comfort and help you maintain a good sleep posture.

5.  Technology-free zone: Keep electronic devices such as smartphones, tablets, and TVs out of your bedroom. The blue light emitted by these devices can interfere with your sleep patterns.

By implementing these tips and creating a sleep-friendly environment, you can optimize your sleep quality and enjoy the benefits of a well-rested mind and body.

[Audio Recording Begins]

Speaker: Good morning, everyone. Today, I'd like to talk to you about my favorite hobby. Can you guess what it is? That's right, it's painting! I find it incredibly relaxing and it allows me to express my creativity. Whenever I have free time, you can usually find me in front of a canvas, brushes in hand, lost in the world of colors.

Now, let's move on to the movie I watched last night. Honestly, I have to say it was disappointing. I had high expectations, but the plot was weak, and the acting was subpar. It just didn't captivate me like I thought it would. I'm usually a big fan of action films, but this one fell short.

Lastly, let me tell you a bit about myself. I am Canadian, born and raised. I love the beautiful landscapes of my country and the friendly people. I am also a big fan of music. I guess I like classical music the most. We have such a rich cultural heritage that I'm proud to be a part of, so I often visit our museum on Sunday when it opens at 10 am.

Please ask me for the answers.
