Favorite Speaking Part 3 – Discussion 1

  1. Do you go to live concerts regularly?
    Not regularly but once in a while I enjoy going to concerts. The problem is that I live in a small place so I have to travel to a big city and for a student the ticket and travel costs are a bit steep. I usually go to see local bands.
  2. Do you think music lessons should be compulsory in schools?
    I´m not sure about compulsory, but I do think learning about music and especially how to play an instrument is important for kids. Children have different talents and should be encouraged to explore them, not everyone is good at maths or science as they may have a more creative side.
  3. What music do you like listening to?
    My preferences are pop music and indie music, I’m a bit middle of the road with my taste in music. I like what lots of people like and I listen to music which helps me to relax so I am not a fan of rock or dance music.
  4. Why is music played in shopping centres?
    I haven’t really thought about it before. Perhaps the music played, generally pop music helps people to relax and be happy and if you feel positive you might be more likely to make an on the spot purchase. Positive music could make people stay longer and buy more.
  5. Do you think music can affect your mood?
    I strongly believe that music can affect how you feel. For example, if you are feeling down and listen to depressing music, it will make you feel worse. On the other hand, if you are feeling cheerful and listen to music which is upbeat, it will enhance your mood and you can feel even better.
  6. Why is music played in gyms and sports centres?
    Usually sports centres play upbeat, energetic music like dance music. Although this type of music is not my cup of tea, I can see it has a motivational purpose, the songs tend to get louder and faster which helps you to push on and run faster or work out harder.
  7. Do you think music communicates anything about culture?
    I think music has an important part to play in our culture as it not only makes a permanent record of life at that time, it records language and attitudes of the day. Music is also important in cultural ceremonies and social events so it can help people feel they belong to something.
