Отработайте диалог по теме “Teenagers reading habits”.
Hello, it’s the electronic assistant of the city library. We kindly ask you to take part in our survey. We need to find out about teenagers reading habits. Please answer 6 questions. The survey is anonymous. You don’t have to give your name. So, let’s get started.
– What kinds of books do you like to read?
Ответ: As for me, I like to read science fiction books because they are full of ideas to think about. Science fiction writers help us to imagine the future world, and they make us more broad-minded.
– Who is your favourite writer?
Ответ: Actually, I have two favourite writers, they are the brothers Arkady and Boris Strugatsky. I strongly believe they were the greatest Soviet-Russian science fiction authors whose works are just awesome.
– How often do you borrow books from the library?
Ответ: Frankly speaking, I don’t borrow books from the library at all. As a rule, I buy and download books from the Internet. I think it is more convenient than going somewhere to borrow a book. I am sure more and more people will do like that in the nearest future.
– Why do yon think teenagers are reading less and less now?
Ответ: Actually, I don’t think so at all. In my opinion, it’s the other way round. Teenagers like reading very much, but they prefer reading e-books to paper-books. To download and read an e-book, they just need a smartphone. They don’t need to go to libraries any more.
– How can reading English books help student improve their English?
Ответ: First of all, reading English books enriches students’ vocabulary. For example, fiction books include words and phrases of different styles. When reading a fiction book, you deal with basic vocabulary, slang, set expressions, and the like. In addition to it, you pick up some grammar as well.
– What book would you recommend to your friend who wants to read something for pleasure and why?
Ответ: I would recommend books about Sherlock Holms by Agatha Christie. It is not difficult to read and understand these books. Besides, the plot of Sherlock Holms stories is splendid.
This is the end of the survey. Thank you very much for your help.
