摘要：2016年9月份雅思口语part1范文：Newspaper and magazine
1.Do you often read newspapers?
No, not really. I read free community newspapers when I happen to find one on the bus, but that’s about it. I get my news from the internet these days.
2.Do you prefer to read local news or international news?
I like to find out what’s going on in my local community – that’s the reason I’ll pick up a local paper if I happen to see one. Even though the local news is likely to be quite mundane, the fact that it’s about familiar people and places makes it interesting to readers who share the same background. International news is often more dramatic but it’s often quite removed from my day-to-day life. Also, almost all the international news we hear these days is negative.
3.Which is more popular where you live, newspapers or magazines?
Well, I can’t speak for everyone, but I don’t think many people buy newspapers these days. I would guess that magazines are more popular, although I have to say that I very rarely buy one.
4.In the future, do you think more people than today will read magazines or few people?
I expect that the number of people reading newspapers and magazines will continue to fall in the future, as more and more people make use of the internet instead. At the moment, I don’t think many young people read newspapers and magazines – it’s mostly older people, who haven’t adapted to using the internet and prefer to stick to what they’re used to.
5.Do you think newspapers will be very important to you in the future?
No, I doubt it very much. Although there are positives, as printing daily newspapers must have involved the use of a huge amount of paper, I used to really like buying the paper on a Sunday. It was very thick, with lots of different sections on fashion, how to renovate your home, recipes or sport - and it took the whole week for our family to work our way through it. I never do crosswords anymore, either, which is a shame.
