Band 9 Model Answer
There is a magazine that I really enjoy reading called Vogue. I was first introduced to this magazine when I went to a friend’s home for tea one evening.
I discovered it lying on her coffee table. I flipped through its pages and became immediately hooked. I found myself buying It every’ month. I bought Issues at various newsstands, convenient stores, and once or twice from a grocery store.
Vogue addresses topics of fashion, life and design. However, if there is one thing that makes buying Vogue worthwhile, it is the articles. They are written by professional and reputable writers who write in-depth about the products, events, and people, house, fashion, and everything else there is to write about. There are lots of advertisements in Vogue, which many people hate, but they do not bother me. I actually enjoy them because they are still showing beautiful people in fashionable outfits.
The main target for Vogue magazine is young women. The stories are focused on famous female celebrities and their opinions. The advertisements are all feminine products. What I think most young girls buy the magazine for is its amazing fashion tip. The fashion taste is great and the shoot are amazing.
It is an all-round magazine for young girls; but for me it isn’t—it’s only fashion, and it serves me well. Vogue is classy and stylish, lit features the best fashion and you do not have to be rich to read this magazine. People who are not interested in fashion will probably hate this magazine, and that is probably why it has received so much criticism. I, on the other hand, love this magazine and look to this magazine for some fantastic fashion inspiration.
QUESTIONS FOR PART 3
What kinds of magazines are popular?
Actually, when it comes to magazines, I’m not quite a big fan. But if I have to answer this question, I would say that magazines that specialize in gardening, fashion, do-it-yourself are all the rage in my country. People love do the gardening, planting trees or vegetables while others are keen on repairing and mending household appliances, or an overwhelming majority of individuals would be hooked by fashion trends, so I guess those three types of magazines would have a wider appeal Compared to the rest.
Is journalist an interesting job?
As far as I’m concerned, this occupation Requires great stamina and persistence to be a journalist, you have too on lots of field trips, travelling nationwide to obtain information for their news articles. Those detest travelling are not cut out to be journalist or correspondent. Another point worthy of consideration is that they have to take great care and be responsible for the truthfulness of their articles. If not, they may be accused of exaggerating or misrepresenting the real situation, and can be even imprisoned if they happen to libel the state in some ways.
Why do some journalists go to the battlefield to report the war?
I guess these heroic figures want the readers to have an on-the-spot coverage of the event so that people can have the best picture of what’s going on there. Being a correspondent during war times can pose an imminent threat to their life but they are in a position to sacrifice their life simply for the sake of the general public. I guess such people must extremely courageous and patriotic L. to embark on such a life-threatening mission
Why do some people still read paper magazines?
Most of these readers tend to be middle-aged or elderly people as they find it difficult to gain access to modern technology. Most of them are computer illiterate and have a hard time handling hi-tech device it such as smartphones, so reading c-magazine would be out of their reach. Interestingly, some people prefer to collect magazines of their interested fields because they can store them and then lake out for later reading, as compared to online versions, which may be deleted or removed after some weeks; a paper magazine lasts almost forever.
Do you think it’s important to keep up with the news?
Many people walk through their lives delightfully unaware of most of the events and issues going on in the world outside of their daily lives. One of the media’s major roles is to serve as a watchdog that keeps people informed. As social creatures that care about what is going on around them, human beings rely a great deal on news. It is important not only because It provides people with information that allows them to live their lives easier, but more importantly because it is the primary way that the popular can stay informed and thus govern themselves. It can help one make informed decisions when performing their civic duties.
What are the main differences between magazines and newspapers?
Magazines are made to sell products and to entertain; while newspapers are used more Just to Inform readers about the important aspects that affect your lives. Most magazines are just celebrity gossip. It fcs not necessarily verifiable It plays no direct role in the way a person lives his/her life. It certainly plays no role in helping inform people so they can he good citizens and govern themselves. Its complete lack of relevancy to I person’s life makes celebrity gossip entertainment, not news.
Why do some people only read the headlines when they read a newspaper?
Most of us, who are interested in the news, usually have busy schedules. We usually only have time to read a newspaper on the bus or train, and that is if there is not too many people. So when people like me read the newspaper, we first scan the headlines to find the most interesting issue of the day. If a headline does not catch our attention, we don’t read it; unless we still have some spare time. Then there are articles that we think have no significance in our lives, so we don’t even consider reading them; thus, just that article’s headline gets read.
