Questions No. 17 to 19
M： Is that the chart about our homestay program?
W： Yes, it shows which states our students went to in the U.S. last year.
M： The largest group went to California, right?
W： Actually, Hawaii topped the list by a few percent over California as the most popular destination.
M： And look. Students who went to the states in the Midwest made up ten percent in total. We send students to several universities in this area, don’t we?
W： Yes, in the Midwest, usually most of our students go to Iowa, but last year most went to Kansas and some to Nebraska.
M： So, we had as many students going to Iowa as we had going to Nebraska.
W： And lots of students went to Massachusetts and Florida, too.
M： Uh-huh, exactly one-fifth went to Massachusetts, and almost as many to Florida. What about the rest of the students?
W： Well, three percent went to other states like Alabama, Texas and Utah.
