Read the short passage below about the problem of teenage drinking and alcohol. Then answer the questions that follow.



Pour beaucoup de jeunes, l’alcool, c’est le symbole de l’entrée dans le monde adulte. Pour eux l’alcool est devenu beaucoup plus accessible ces dernières années. On peut aller dans un supermarché et obtenir de la vodka, qui est la boisson alcoolisée préférée des adolescents. Les fabricants savent que les jeunes ont de plus en plus d’argent et ils ont essayé de les encourager à
boire avec les alcopops, c’est-à-dire des boissons alcoolisées très sucrées. Certains adolescents expliquent leur consommation excessive par le stress, les problèmes scolaires ou les disputes avec leurs parents. Mais le ministre de la Santé croit que les jeunes ne sont pas conscients des risques.
Beaucoup de jeunes conduisent après avoir trop bu. La consommation d’alcool provoque des comportements violents. Et bien sûr, il y a des risques à long terme. N’oublions pas que l’alcool est responsable de 34 000 morts par an en France, un chiffre qui reste stable depuis dix ans.


Les Questions

  1. How accessible is alcohol for teenagers in France?
  2. What is the favorite alcoholic drink of teens?
  3. Who is responsible for making these products available?
  4. What do they call the sugary alcoholic drinks?
  5. What are some of the reasons teens start drinking?
  6. What does the Health Ministry believe to be the dangers or risks of under-age drinking?
  7. What is the long term risk of drinking?
