Приступаем к теме Let’s talk about modern means of communication

1. Is there any means of communication you can’t live without? Why?

There is not anything without which I can’t live. My life would be different if I decided to stop using them, but I would cope with any inconvenience caused. Mobile phones are useful, but I prefer to meet people and see their eyes and touch them. My attitude to social networks is the same. Nothing can replace hugs and eye contact. As for mass media, I am not sure that they can be trusted. In my opinion, independent journalists are a myth.

2. Do you consider all means of communication very effective? Why?

I have never thought about it, but I suppose they are equally effective. They spread the same information at a different speed. It takes postmen some time to bring newspapers. You need some time to make a TV announcement. The Internet is the fastest way of informing other people, but you shouldn’t blindly trust any information you find on the Internet.

3. What questions would you ask about new gadget -iPad?

In what way is it different from other devices of this kind? Do you really think it is so good?

4. Give me a piece of advice on how to convince of the necessity of a mobile for every teenager.

If they are used in case of emergency they are really useful. Any teenager may find himself in a dangerous situation, especially in the evening. If someone is unwell you may have to ask for help and call an ambulance. Maybe you’ll have to report to the police if you see something criminal going on. You shouldn’t blame mobile phones for their incorrect usage by some teenagers.

5. Many people say that newspapers and radio are not as popular as TV and very soon they will lose their importance. What is your point of view?

It’s true, but it is bad. Newspapers and the radio usually give balanced information and make people think it over. TV is for pure entertainment. Even if they tell us something, bright pictures go before words. They try to influence us by replacing information with distracting pictures and ready-made answers.

1.Let’s talk about modern means of communication: TV, newspapers, radio, the Internet. Which of these does your family like?

Different members of my family like different means of communication. My granddad is fond of the radio as he is simply used to it. Some 50 years ago there wasn’t much variety of these things. He stack to his old favourite. My dad prefers newspapers as they are serious about checking the information they provide. My mum is keen on television with numerous shows to keep you entertained. As for me, I am crazy about the Internet. It’s my whole life, since my friends  live faraway.

2.My cousin spends a lot of time chatting on “Contact” and it makes all the family angry. What can you advise him and the family to do in this situation?

People who are dependent on social networks don’t have much understanding in their families. They try to get approval from different people. My suggestion might be to talk to them more and try to share their interests and problems. Criticizing won’t do anyone any good. They don’t need our comments on their failures. They desperately need our sympathy and care. If they get them at home, they won’t look for them anywhere else.

3.Can the Internet replace all the other means of mass media? What is your point of view?

It is possible as the Internet can provide us with textual, visual and audio forms of presenting information. The worst thing is that information available through the Internet isn’t always reliable. If anyone does something to improve the situation, it is possible that it will become the only means of mass media.

4.I’d like to watch an interesting programme on TV. What can you advise me?

In my opinion an interesting programme is the one which may teach us something. My favourite TV channels are Discovery and National Geographic. You may watch any programme and you will learn a lot about even familiar things.
