Do you like to try new activities? Why? (cấu trúc liệt kê reasons: stay healthy, enrich my life with varied experiences/ meet new people and enlarge social circle…)
Oh yes. I’d love to step out of my comfort zone. My life has seemed like an endless treadmill for years so taking up a new pastime or pursuit would definitely be of immense help. Also, by incorporating some novel experiences into my daily life and breaking my routine at work, I could posibly become more productive and renew my sense of fulfilment.
What kinds of new activities do you want to try? Why? (câu điều kiện: nếu có time, money…+ example: such as, like, including)
Well, there is a host of recreational activities I’ve been longing to attempt such as yoga, meditation or going on a picnic. Besides, I’m really into physical activities, especially exotic ones like scuba diving or horse racing. So, if I had sufficient time and budget available, I would definitely give them a try.
What kinds of activities did you often try in the past? (cấu trúc past: would + used to)
I was born and raised in the countryside so obviously, there wasn’t a wide range of entertainment or recreation options for us to choose. I would go for any activities that are fascinating, fun and of course free of charge like planting and taking care of flowers or raising a puppy. To stay fit, I used to take part in outdoor games and sports, including hide and seek and playing badminton.
Would you like to try new activities alone or in a group? (cấu trúc It depends)
That’s an interesting one. My work schedule has been sort of hectic lately so I’d like to sample new leisure activities on my own rather than with others. For sports or physical exertions, however, I might be better off experiencing it firsthand with my friends or family. This would give me a sense of commitment and discipline which is essential to a successful attempt.
