1. How often do you surf the Internet?

Unfortunately, I have to use it quite often. I think that the Internet is not a reliable source of information but we are always late and we have to rely on it despite its being unreliable. The Internet is an open library if your list of reference is well sorted out. As for aimless surfing, I refer to use my resources economically and you know that time is priceless therefore I either do my best to do something worthy or try to rest.

2. What do you use your computer for?

To begin with, I think that computer games are a waste of time, that’s why I use my computer for studying only. Though it is not healthy I often read books online. You do so if you want to read the book which you can’t find in a book shop. Watching films online is not my idea of having a good time. Paying a visit to the cinema is much more enjoyable. A wider screen and having someone to share the experience add a lot to watching a film compared to sitting alone in front of your computer.

3. How different were the lives of people when there were no computers?

When there were no computers and TV-sets people used to read more or visit their friends or relatives more often. Reading books makes people think and I suppose they were cleverer than their grandchildren are now. Computers can’t replace meeting a friend and having a good time with him. The pace of life then was slower but their lives were more meaningful in my opinion. When you don’t have to rush your decisions are more thoughtful and you live through every moment of it..

4. How do you use the Internet to learn English?

To make my English better I do many things with the help of the Internet. I listen to radio programmes and try to communicate with native speakers. I love podcasts as they are like a real conversation with a prominent person, its host. Many people like watching films in English but I suppose as they are not as useful as audiobooks are. Compared to the literature, the language of a film is rather pale and limited. Without the Internet learning a foreign language would be dull and slow. To my mind one can’t learn a language from books. Any language is a means of exchanging ideas.
