Part 1 Laughing
1. Q: What kind of thing make you laugh?
A: I think that everyone laughs at different things and some say that every nation has a particular style of humour. Certainly the Japanese or the Germans seem to laugh at film clips showing people being humiliated. People in Britain would feel sorry for the humiliated person. In the USA people tends to laugh at one line funny remarks, whereas in Britain people laugh at funny stories or amusing situations, where nobody gets hurt.
2. Q: Do you like making other people laugh? Why?/ Why not?
A: I really love to make others laugh, something that makes life more exciting and colorful. That’s another reason why I laugh all the time.
3. Q: Do you think it’s important for people to laugh? Why?/ Why not?
A: One of the most important things in the world, would be number two on the list of the things that appreciated in people. Impossible to make life interesting and fun, if you don’t know how to smile about it.
4. Q: Is laughing the same as feeling happy, do you think? Why?/ Why not?
A: For me laughing is not the same thing as being happy, but it’s definitely a part of being a happy person. You might be happy in different aspects, and the things that makes us happy are completely different, but when something good makes you smile, its usually same for all people.
