Do you like listening to the music on a regular basis?
Yes, without a doubt. I like different [tooltip hint=”Different types of music (such as pop music, rock, classical music etc.”]music genres[/tooltip] and I listen to various tunes almost every day… I do not like [tooltip hint=”Music that is played in places like supermarket or family restaurant. Almost always is very repetitive and boring.”]elevator music[/tooltip], though… It makes me bored and annoyed.
Have you ever been interested in singing?
No, not really… I took singing classes when I was younger, but, unfortunately, I am [tooltip hint=”Not able to discern the notes properly”]tone deaf[/tooltip], so I can’t sing very well…
Can you say that music is a very important part of your life?
No, I can’t… Although I enjoy music and listen to [tooltip hint=”Music that is thought to be a part of a long, formal tradition.”]classical music[/tooltip] every now and then, I’m not obsessed with it…
Now, have a look at the card and prepare a monologue
Describe a band you enjoy listening to. You should say:
- How did you find them
- What kind of music do they play
- When do you listen to them
- And say why you like them so much
I really enjoy listening to Maroon 5… I found this [tooltip hint=”A group of people who play music.”]music band[/tooltip] a few years ago, when I was looking for some [tooltip hint=”Popular music.”]pop music[/tooltip] on the Internet… And, immediately after listening to the few of their songs, I fell in love with this awesome band… Their music is very catchy and [tooltip hint=”Full of pleasant, melodious sounds.”] tuneful[/tooltip]at the same time. I especially like this band for their [tooltip hint=”Melody that makes you feel active.”]driving rhythms[/tooltip]… As of today, I have gone to a few of their concerts and have their posters all over my wall. I listen to their songs when I’m upset or stressed out… They always [tooltip hint=”Make my mood better.”] cheer me up[/tooltip]… Also, one of their songs, namely “Payphone”, is set as a [tooltip hint=”Sound that a cell phone makes when someone is calling”]ringtone[/tooltip]. on my phone.
Do you think music is getting better as time goes on?
No, quite the opposite. In my opinion, music was a lot better back in the day… I love music from 60s and 70s… There are [tooltip hint=”A lot of.”]myriads of[/tooltip] famous [tooltip hint=”Musicians that play rock music.”]rock bands[/tooltip] of that time that I really like… And nowadays almost every [tooltip hint=”Popular song.”]pop-song[/tooltip] sounds boring and dull to me…
Where do you think people enjoy listening to music the most?
I my point of view, it all depends on a person… As for me, I enjoy listening to the music in my room, where nobody can bother me… But a lot of my friends would prefer listening to the music while travelling in public transport… This way their journey becomes more pleasant.
Is it better to go to a live concert or to listen to a CD?
I think that nothing compares to a [tooltip hint=”Concert that is played right in front of you.”]live concert[/tooltip]! It’s just magical to be on a concert in a large group of people like you, listening to the songs you know being played right in front of you… It’s empowering, and completely unlike listening to recorded music.
