Topic: Entertainment

Q. Do you prefer relaxing at home or going out in the evening? [Why?]
A. I usually prefer going outside in the evening. I think the evening time is suitable for meeting friends outdoor and doing some exercises rather than staying at home. I have been doing this for a very long time and if I stay home during the evening, I feel bored.

Q. When you go out for an evening, what do you like to do?
A. I mostly like to walk in a park or spend some time with my friends in the evening. I often take my bicycle and ride it for an hour or so once or twice a week. Sometimes, I go to a movie with my friends and have fun.

Q. How popular is this with other people in your country?
A. Walking in a park, hanging out with friends and riding a bicycle as part of the outdoor activity are common among people in my country. Many young and elders do these often in the afternoon. Families often visit the theatre in the evening and spend some quality time together.

Q. Is there any kind of entertainment you do not like? [Why/Why not?]
A. I guess I hate to see people wasting hours after hours in front of a television set. I do believe the television is a great media to get news and watch entertaining programmes, but some people are addicted to watching TV and they spend almost 6-8 hours a day watching television programmes. I just dislike this as I believe this time could be better utilised.
