Speaking Model Answers
1. Do you like watching television, and when do you usually do it?
I would not say that I am not fond of watching television at all, but it is really no longer one of the few activities I do for leisure at home every day. I continue to have the entire world in my pocket as long as a smartphone or a tablet is found within my reach. I most often watch television in the early morning, when the latest breaking news starts to be broadcast.
2. How much time do you spend on television?
Throughout my life, I have never spent over three hours on television each time I watch it. There is hardly ever a program, such as a single movie or an episode of a drama series, that lasts longer than two and a half hours. Even a mere 15 minutes would suffice me to sort both domestic and international news.
3. What types of TV program do you like watching?
In addition to news channels, I am a big fan of action fiction and situation comedies. The news keeps me updated on in what manner human societies are changing. No other television program would excite me more than a Hollywood blockbuster, whereas sitcoms teach me to develop a positive and optimistic personality by showing me how life is seen from the perspective of a humorous mind.
4. What types of TV program are popular in your country?
Similar to those in other parts of the world, television programs in Vietnam vary from children’s shows to live talk shows. Original Vietnamese channels broadcast contents that embody diverse traditional cultural values of our motherland.
5. Why do children like watching television?
To us adults, the television is a mere electronic device. To young children, nevertheless, it is a miraculous portal that exposes their innocent minds to a mixed world of realities and fictions, between which they are not yet able to differentiate. On the outside, they seem to be only looking at the screen, but most of us might easily forget the fact that their brains are working to comprehend the world they live within. The more time they spend on television, the bigger their curiosity about it grows.
