IELTS Speaking Part 3
Do young people like historical stories in your country?
I am afraid not, since history is not taught very effectively here in our country. Many of my friends aren’t keen on history, and most of them don’t even know some very common heroes, which is really a shame.
Do you think history matters in a country’s future development?
Yes. We humans reflect on history to learn from our own mistakes. Understanding our mistakes and correcting them is the solid foundation for future development.
What is the effective way of learning history, by reading books or watching videos?
It really depends. For beginners, movies are a good starting point. Vivid images and fighting scenes from movies can be very inspirational. It can help inspire people to get to know more about history. However, when one wishes to have a deeper insight, books are the better option.
Why should we learn history?
History is a good reflection of the past. By learning history, we are able to conceive how our ancestors lived, struggled against Mother Nature, and died. Knowing these facts and learning from their mistakes is a solid foundation for future development.
