Describe an interesting conversation you had with your friend
You should say:
– Who you spoke with?
– Where you were?
– What the conversation was about?
And explain why you think it was interesting?
I remember a really fascinating conversation I had with my friend years ago. The person who I spoke with was a good friend of mine since when we were little kids. He was studying astronomy at the university, so he was kind of an expert, he was kind of a wiz on everything related to space: stars, black holes that kind of thing.
I don’t know anything about that, one time we went out to my cabin which is kind of a beautiful place. There’s a lake and you can see the the night sky really well at night – you can see all the stars. It’s really quite beautiful, we were on the beach, we were kind of just chilling drinking a few beers and enjoying the really peaceful time.
He started talking about kind of like the history of space which I thought was really interesting because you know I don’t really know anything and he talked about kind of the different stars; how far away they were from our planet; how many planets exist in the universe; how much time until our sun will burn out all these really kind of big things that I don’t know anything about really.
I learned a lot, I gained a lot of wisdom so I thought this was really interesting. I really enjoy spending time with this friend because he’s really knowledgeable in a field and he’s kind of a space buff we could say. Of course, I don’t know anything so I thought it really opened my mind. It really was mind-blowing to me, so it was a really cool conversation that I had with a friend at a very beautiful place.
1. When do children normally form their own views?
I think when children go to primary school, at about 6 to 7 years old, they begin to have their own views. In school, teachers instruct them to answer questions, express their feelings and give their opinions. Also, when children communicate with their peers, they can share different ideas. At the same time, children begin to learn important values and retain a lot. of information, In this process, children will form their own views.
2. Do children have strong opinions?
I suppose parents’ guidance and instruction play an important role. Some children are encouraged to have their own thoughts and they won’t be influenced by other people’s ideas. This group of children will have strong opinions and they usually make decisions independently. On the other hand, some children are shy and timid. Maybe they are frequently required by adults to follow their rules. It is hard for them to have strong opinions.
3. Should parents request their kids to obey them?
As children have limited social and life experience, parents should help them develop good habits. On some occasions when kids do something wrong or improper, I agree that parents should request their kids to obey them. At the same time, parents should tell them the reason patiently. Also, they are supposed to listen to the kids’ opinions. It is necessary for parents to give their kids plenty of space.
4. In what industries do you think communication is a necessary skill?
Nowadays, it seems to me that communication is necessary for almost every industry, especially in tourism; hospitality, marketing, services, and so on. Many people are supposed to work in a team. They have to work with their colleagues and talk with their customers or clients. Without communication skills, it is difficult for them to cooperate with others, finish their tasks or achieve their goals in their career.
