- And explain why you did it together
Introduce the topic:
Well, I wanna talk about a picnic I had with a bunch of friends at a park near my home.
What it was + who you did it with:
Some of my friends decided not to go back to their hometowns during the Chinese New Year due to the pandemic and suggested having a picnic together. There’s a huge park near my place and its vast verdant meadow has made it a perfect picnic spot in recent years, so I invited my friends to sleep over at my house the day before to make the preparations.
What you did + How long it took you to do this:
It was a bright day with a nip in the air. By the time we arrived, there had been quite a few tents set up on the meadow. Fortunately, we found a perfect spot near the lake, away from the crowds and traffic, and laid out all the food and drinks on the blanket (picnic blanke). No one could resist the temptation of snapping a photo when everything was ready.
What you did + How long it took you to do this:
The sunshine overhead made us pleasantly drowsy, so a few of us decided to take a stroll and get some fresh air while the rest of the gang took their nap. The park came alive once again in the afternoon with more people jogging or cycling on the footpaths and kids frolicking or chasing after their buddies.
The next couple of hours was cheerfully spent on light-hearted banter, chat, card games, etc., and we didn’t pack up until the night closed in. Anyway, we had a great time laughing and sharing all the interesting stuff with one another.
Why you did it together:
Having a picnic with my close friends turned out to be a wonderful way to celebrate the new year and I certainly would love to do it again. I think it’s important for friends to meet up from time to time so that we’ll never drift apart.
1. How do you get along with your neighbors?
In Vietnam, getting along with neighbors is highly valued and seen as an important aspect of community life.
Neighborhoods tend to be close-knit and friendly, with people often looking out for each other and offering assistance when needed.
For example, neighbors may share food and resources, help each other with household chores, and offer support and advice.
In many cases, neighbors will also spend time together, socializing and building relationships.
This could involve sharing meals, playing games, or simply chatting over tea or coffee.
By doing so, they can build trust, foster mutual respect, and strengthen their sense of community.
2. How do neighbors help each other?
Neighbors in Vietnam often help each other in a variety of ways.
For example, they may offer to run errands, assist with household chores, or provide help with transportation.
Additionally, they may offer emotional support, such as listening and offering advice when needed.
In some cases, neighbors will also collaborate on larger projects, such as building a community garden or organizing a neighborhood cleanup.
These types of initiatives help to build community spirit and bring people together, creating a sense of shared ownership and responsibility for the well-being of the neighborhood.
3. Do you think neighbors help each other more often in the countryside than in the city?
It’s difficult to make a generalization about whether neighbors help each other more often in the countryside or in the city as it can vary depending on the specific community and individual circumstances.
However, in rural areas, people tend to live in closer proximity to one another, which can foster a greater sense of community and a greater willingness to offer help and support.
In contrast, in urban areas, people may be more focused on their own lives and may not have as much time or opportunity to offer help to their neighbors.
4. How do children learn to cooperate with each other?
Children learn to cooperate with each other through a variety of experiences, both in and outside of the home.
For example, they may learn to work together on group projects in school, play cooperative games with friends, or participate in community activities with their families
Additionally, children can learn about cooperation through observing and imitating the behavior of others, such as their parents, teachers, and other role models.
By doing so, they can gain a better understanding of what it means to cooperate, how to build trust and respect, and how to resolve conflicts in a respectful and constructive manner.
5. Do you think parents should teach children how to cooperate with others? How?
Yes, I believe that parents should play an important role in teaching children how to cooperate with others.
This can be done through modeling good behavior and showing children how to work together and resolve conflicts respectfully.
Parents can also engage in activities with their children that promote cooperation, such as playing board games, participating in community projects, or volunteering together.
Additionally, they can encourage children to participate in group activities, such as sports teams, clubs, or youth organizations, which can help to develop their social skills and ability to work with others.
6. Do you think it’s important for children to learn about cooperation?
Yes, I believe that it is extremely important for children to learn about cooperation.
Cooperation is a fundamental life skill that enables individuals to work together effectively and achieve common goals.
By learning to cooperate, children can develop stronger relationships, build trust and respect, and resolve conflicts in a respectful and constructive manner.
Furthermore, the ability to cooperate is essential for success in many aspects of life, including school, work, and community life.
By learning to cooperate early on, children can develop a strong foundation that will serve them well throughout their lives.
