- Do you often switch off your phone? (follow up question part 2)
No, I only turn it off at night as I’ve read somewhere phone connection can disturb our sleep. When I need to concentrate on a critical task or when I’m on an airplane, I’ll put it in silent mode or disconnected mode.
- Are there any places in your country where mobile/ cell phones are banned?
Well, let me see. It’s widely acceptable to talk on the phone even loudly on buses & trains or while driving in Vietnam, which I find really annoying. However, mobile phone usage is not allowed in petrol stations or some other restricted areas where phone connection might interfere with or cause other devices to malfunction, posing a threat to people’s safety.
- Is it necessary to be polite?
Absolutely. Being polite to each other is the foundation of a good relationship. No one can live alone these days and it’s essential to be conscious of others’ feelings. Politeness is a sign of good manner, respect, care and self-esteem, which help people develop social skills and consequently enhance their mental well-being.
- Does politeness depend on culture or location?
That’s an interesting question! It’s true that people in certain countries such as Japan or New Zealand tend to be more polite than other nations. However, I believe the key factor behind this is not location but education and culture. If politeness and other ethical values are at the centre of early education programs, children will grow up into kind-hearted and well-mannered individuals.
- Advantages and disadvantages of mobile phone?
I think mobile phone, especially smartphone is one of the coolest gadgets that have been invented so far. It has transformed the way people communicate with each other. They can call anyone, anywhere and at any time. With a ton of functions and compatible apps, this handy little device has made a large part of our life much easier. However, mobile phones can have devastating effects on users’ health if misused or overused. Too much screen time is unhealthy for their eyes and may disturb their sleep. Also, mobile phones can make it hard for people to concentrate on work or study, leading to low productivity and poor performance.
- Do young people and old people use mobile phone the same way?
Definitely not. Old people tend to use their phones for basic functions such as calling or texting, I mean mainly for communication purpose. Young people, on other hand, use the device for a much wider range of activities: to stay in touch with others, to take photos, to relax and entertain, to take notes, to make plan, to learn languages or even to work. As a result, they spend much more time on the gadget than old people.
- Should children be allowed to use mobile phones? At what age?
I’d say yes. The most obvious reason is that most parents are now getting busier with work while children tend to spend more time having fun outside of their home. Mobile phones help adults keep track of their kids to ensure their safety. Besides, children need to get in touch with their friends and teachers too. I believe teenagers should be allowed to use mobile phones under supervision, possibly from the age of 12.
- Why are young people addicted to their mobile phones?
Well, this is mainly because the device is super cool and children love having fun. With a smartphone, they can do almost anything, all at their fingertips, from surfing the Internet, playing games, chatting with friends, listening to music, taking photos, watching films to learning languages. Another reason is that these days most parents seem too busy to spend time with their kids and even leave them playing on smartphones unsupervised. It’s easy to see why youngsters spend so much screen time.
