Speaker A: It wasn’t as good as I’d expected. I thought it was the best film I’ve seen in ages. But I can’t say that I couldn’t take my eyes off the screen. Yeah, it was gripping but they’d missed out loads of details. You see, I’ve read the book several times — it’s one of my favourites — but they just didn’t stick to the plot. Some of the most important parts of the story were just jumped over. I wish they wouldn’t do that. And they even made the main character less complicated than she was in the book. I just think that they should be true to the original story.
Speaker B: There’s so much more variety nowadays. When I was younger, people used to go out and have fun — to the cinema, theatre or to a concert. Now technology has changed everything, so it’s all at your fingertips at home. People can listen to music, watch a DVD, even watch the cup final live, all the comfort of their own home. It’s convenient but people don’t socialize like they used to. I think that’s a great shame. Even people in the same family don’t share or enjoy entertainment together.
Speaker С: I used to be a really keen theatre-goer. Now I can’t do it as much as I’d like to. The reason isn’t because of high prices. The thing is I spend every spare moment on my course. It’s really hard-working full-time and studying for my masters. At times, life gets pretty dull and I think about giving it up but it’s the last year now so I ought to keep going. I’m just looking forward to when I can get my life back.
Speaker D: I suppose it’s not bad here, considering it’s only quite a small town. We’ve got the usual things — a multi-screen cinema, a couple of clubs, pubs and restaurants and a small local museum. But if you want to see a top band, opera or even a play you need fo go into one of the bigger cities nearby. It’s the teenagers I feel sorry for. I mean, there really isn’t much for them to do. And then when they get to 18, it’s hardly surprising they spend the whole weekend in the pub.
Speaker E: My Mum doesn’t want to get on my case. She always forbids me to watch what I want. Every day she tells to turn that TV off. I must be the only kid in my class without a TV in his room. It’s just not fair. If she bought me my own TV, I could watch it when I wanted. But my Mum thinks I already watch far too much and I hardly ever do anything else. She wants me to play the guitar which my parents have bought.
Speaker F: It really annoys me when people complain about the local art scene. Just last month our town put on an exhibition and sale of local artists and craftspeople. Lots of people put forward their work — painters, photographers, weavers and furniture makers — and it was well promoted in the local paper and online. And what happened? There were hardly any visitors. It was awful. We had two or three people an hour. It was just such a disappointment. What was the point of all those artists being there?
