How do movies or television influence people’s behavior? Use reasons and specific examples to support your answer.
Television now plays an important role in our life. It is difficult to say if it is good or bad for us. It is clear, that television has advantages and disadvantages. In the first place, television is an entertainment. But it is not only a convenient entertainment. For a family of three, four or five, for example, it is more convenient and less expensive to sit comfortably at home than to go out to find entertainment in other places. They don’t have to pay for expensive seats at the theatre or cinema. They turn on the TV-set and can see interesting films, concerts, football matches. But some people think that it’s bad to watch TV. Those who watch TV need do nothing. As for me, I like many TV programs like “Comedy club”, Turkish films, “Leader of the XXIst century” and so on. We are passive when we watch TV. Television shows us many interesting programs. But again there is a disadvantage here: we watch TV every evening, and it begins to dominate our lives.
My friend told me that when his TV-set broke down, he and his family found that they had more time to do things and to talk to each other. There are other arguments for and against television. Very often the programs are bad. Sometimes they show too much violence in films and news programs. There is also too much pop music and ads. Ads on the whole are convenient for grown-ups.
When people succeed, it is because of hard work. Luck has nothing to do with success. Do you agree or disagree with the quotation above? Use specific reasons and examples to explain your position.
