  1. 1. Gordon thinks that many television programs give an inaccurate picture of American life. What kind of programs do you see about American life? Do you think that they show American life accurately? Do newspapers and television shows sometimes give the world an
    inaccurate picture of life in your country?

    No all television programs accurately reflects the life of its country. there are also many fables about it, we must take into account that these kind of programs has a commercial purpose too.
    Regarding the newspapers, we must also be careful because almost always, they are oriented by particular interests.

    2. What do you think are the similarities and differences between American teens and teens in your country?
    Strictly speaking, our teenagers are the same all over the world. The issue is cultural. Culture establishes differences throughout our lives.

    Thank you Maestro

  2. Like Gardon, I also think that many television programs give an inaccurate picture of American life. I had watched a lot of TV dramas translated into my mother language, which is different from the American life discussed by guests on sot of talk shows. I think that the guests show American life accurately, at least their own experiences. I also think newspapers and television shows sometimes give the world an inaccurate picture of life in my country, for sort of purposes broadcasting to attract more people to join. If we want to know the true life, we need to live in the US for a long time with American residents.

    1. 1.i agree with gordon,Television not shown the reality, i don’t have any programme to describe an american life
      2. I think the americain teens have a good structure for school, sport…than the teens of my contry and we have differnt culture.

  3. Hello , hind from Iraq

    American Teen Talks!
    ” Gordon, 15 ”
    1) Well, I can’t endorse Gordon’s opinion or thinking, cause, I hardly watch an American TV programs. The
    world has become a global village and everywhere the teenagers behave and act the same way.
    2) Here I agree with Gordon’s thinking but it can be a small margin difference of culture and religion.

  5. Greetings Maestro Sersea
    What kind of programs do you see about America life?
    I enjoy to see Health Television Show for instance this famous Reality television show named Botch show us about how many people is more worried about their personal appereance sometime until the point to put at risk their own lifes. But In this specific reality show I have observed how they also prevent to the public to take caution about the risks of this kind of surgeries. I believe that they show in an accurately way how this surgeries has a big influence in the American life.
    Do newspapers and television show sometimes give the world an innacurate picture of life in your country?
    Yes, I think so mainly when are caused by crimminal or corrupt acts.
    Thank you so much
