– What is your favorite color?
I love the colour red
– Did you wear bright clothes when you were younger?
Well yes, I was a very colourful kid at that time. I always wear clothes with rainbow on it. I used to think it was funny and attractive
– Do you have any preference for the color of your car?
Well yes I do. If I had a chance to buy a car, I would definitely buy a black one. Black cars look more serious and luxurious to me
– Do you enjoy doing household chores?
No not really. I must admit I am a couch potato. I only enjoy spending time on watching TV I always leave the household chores to my sisters – who are better at it and also love doing it
– Would you like to have all chores done by special appliances?
I would certainly hope so. Nowadays technology is so advanced, it can save you so much time and can do the job more effectively than human.

Describe a TV or radio show that you regularly watch or listen to. Please say
– What program is it?
– What do you like or dislike about it?
– Why do you watch or listen to it?
The program that I watch the most is Who wants to be a millionaire. Out of all the shows and programs on TV, this is the most respectable and interesting show in my opinion. I think you may have heard about this show before because it is really well-known and wide-spread among many countries. Well the show is basically a question-answer type of challenge where the host of the program throws questions at the candidate. The question’s difficulty can range from extremely easy such as “what letter comes after C in the alphabet?” to incredibly difficult such as “How many legs does an ant have?” or “which year was Neil Armstrong born”. The questions also cover a wide range of topics as well so as to add more challenge to the game. So, the player really really needs to be a polymath to win this game hands down– by polymath I mean mr know it all or in other words, a person with extensive knowledge about basically every aspect of life. The reason why it’s called who wants to be a millionaire is because the final prize for the game is a million dollars for the winner – which is an enormous amount of money I think. But I suppose this is a fair prize for people with extensive knowledge about life. It kinda encourages people to become more and more aware of the world surrounding them. And in the future If I possible I would definitely take a chance to take part in the game and try to win 1million dollars
– Do you discuss it with the members of your family?
No not really, none of my family members love watching TV like I do and they seem to really hate it when I try to start any conversation related to TV. I am really sad about this
– Can TV and radio be used for education?
I think this is an excellent idea with many potentials. It is so because firstly children and couch potatoes like me spend a disproportionally large amount of time on it. Secondly programs on TV are especially interesting because they are fun to watch and sometimes they are very interactive
– What is better for education: TV or radio?
I think both can be equally effective. When children watch TV it is easier for them to understand things because they are visualised through the image. Children will understand them immediately when they see the explanation on TV. It is harder to achieve the same thing with radio, but you can certainly encourage children’s imagination with the use of radio. When you can only hear the voice or sound, you will have to imagine things in your mind, and that is good for creativity
– What programs do people in your country prefer to watch?
I don’t really know for sure. I never go out and ask people what they watch or never read the newspapers either. But I assume most of them would prefer entertainment over educational programs and would watch things like series, movies or MTV. And I think it is really bad for the country as a whole as people are having too much entertainment instead of education.
