    I like to watch Tv a lot. especially movies. Nowadays there are a lot of interesting things to watch on tv. So I seldom go to the cinema. I usually watch tv 2-3 hours a day. When I was over 10 years old, I have seen 2 movies that make me to remember so much, these are Stay at home alone and Gone with wind, I’m not sure about the name of that movie. But I like them a lot.

  9. ildi says:

    I really like watching all kinds of movies, especially action movie. At least, once a month, i spent my time to have a pleasure by watching movie. I usually to to cinema with my close friend (usually on saturday night). I can say that by watching movie, I gradually have ability to hear and understand what the movies talked about. I do not care who the artist/actors, the most important things for me is I am able to improve my English because in my mind through the movie I am capable of understanding the language and culture. So, that;s why I want to wacth movie every month. That’s it.

    i watch tv everyday half an hour, and watch movie more than one hour. i like every movie. by watching movie i can improve my language . i always try to follow the conversations and try to memorize it .

  11. Cleber Costa says:

    I usually watch Tv less than I could, because when I come from job, I´m really tired.
    I´d like to watch more, but is hard for me.

  12. Nam says:

    I really like it when I do watching TV in my free time. I think, I really interested in something about English, especially American movies or stuff like that. At the first time I have to look at the translate meaning in the screen. But now I don’t need to look at it any more. It could possibly help me to improve my English listening skill. The movie I like best is ‘the Karate Kid’. The little boy in the movie is really talent. He can master the Gongfu in the short time. But first of all he had a really good patience.

  13. Quynh Nguyen says:

    I usually watch action movie at freetime. I’m very busy so that I only save less than one hour to watch the enteresting firm. After completing all works in a day, I find high felling from american action movie to forget all stresses. when watching action movie, I always fell worrying and afraid with actors in the film. American directors had invested for the movie so much from film studio to clothes of actors. they stages in the film carefully so that the viewers fell the sence in the movie like true.

    I was away here past three lessons cos lack of time ,but I need to take my role now and cover all questions are in my lesson.I’ve never seen Pulp Fiction,but it have some idea about that.John Travolta was in Pulp Fiction and the film its self was made in 1994.It was made by Roger Avary and the director was Quentin Tarantino in other hand Quentino was also cowriter.if I talk about myself,i go to the cinema occasionally, and in addition I usually watch movies on DVD.I like director Tim Burton but my fovorite actress is Julia Robbert and Quentino Trantino’s director,too,but I cant guess whose personality and even how he sets up his movies.I didn’t watch any of your list films accept”Harry Potter” cos I watched its advertise from a local tv.I really like watching tv,but I can tell the exact hours.where I’m there’s a few newspapers and televisions,and most of them are owned by civil society part from national media,so most media in this country is owned by civil society
    thanks my teachers

    I like to do movie marathons during weekends and freetime. I am totally relaxed whenever i go to the mall and watch movies expecially light and wholesome. Dont really matter if it is kiddy stuffs or comedy as long as it takes my mind out of work and worldly matters. Time fly fast and i dont notice the world outside whenever im watching either the TV or Movies. I would say it is a great escape and a new world in some context to experience.

    Hi,
    Actually i like to watch T.V daily during evening. i think by watching T.V we can improve our knowledge, can develop our personality in a good manner and will get better idea abt tasty and delicious food for our family and especially for our guest. and we culd know abt whole world. means will get up to date news. i think the American president Obama is very familiar to me. coze by watching NDTV all famous people r very familiar if there r in the diffrent corners of the world.
    but unfortunately i culdn’t watch t v regularly. coze ‘m a govt. employee. so don’t have got enough time to spend in front of T V
