  1. Hi Rick!
    I’m so sorry I send you this mail in the early morning.

    I have a question about exercise 3.
    The answer of No.4 is “outlets,” but we have to explain the term “outlets” in other words, right?

    • Good Question! Thank you!
      I think the textbook company printed a mistake.

      Outlet can be divided into two words: “out” and “let”

      “out” means outside or far from.

      So, in “outlet” in our story, it means (far from or) outside the main pizza company’s home area.

      “let” means allow.

      So, an “outlet” is a place that is far from the home area of the company, and it’s a place where the product (pizza) is allowed to be sold.

      In English, we often make words by putting two words together. When we find an unknown word, we can sometimes guess the meaning of this word by thinking about the meanings of the two words that part of this one word. This is an important skill for academic reading. We can often understand the meanings of unknown words by looking at the smaller words that are used to make the word.

      OK?
