I would like to present our theme project about the teen’s forms of entertainment in Russia. We are sure that most of boys are crazy about computer games and spend much time playing them. On the other hand, we don’t agree
to be labeled as ‘A Square-Eyed Generation’ because so many boys play football or other sports games at school and as after-school activities. In warm seasons we love hanging out with friends, but in the winter our socializing is limited. We chat online, though. We like school trips to museums, they are educational, of course, and we have much fun while on the bus and no school on those days. Watching TV is gripping for boys only when there is an important sports event like The Olympics or some exciting football matches, so we are not couch potatoes.
We don’t earn money, so we depend on our parents when we need or want to buy something. Besides, all the malls are quite far from our place and they can’t make a form of entertainment for teens like us.
Thank you for your attention.
Our theme project presents the teen’s forms of entertainment in Russia. We believe that girls are fond of listening to music as nothing can beat a catchy song! We like to sing along, but we are not karaoke fans like Japanese teenagers. Our parents don’t worry so much about computer games: we can take it or leave it. There are not many game addicts among girls. We like to unwind with a good DVD or watch a new film on TV. Girls like dancing and we are looking forward to school parties when we can change a boring uniform to a party dress and wear some make up! Sometimes when we get our pocket money we can afford a shopping spree at the malls. School sports clubs help socializing and on holidays we like hanging out with friends.
So, our theme project proves that the definition ‘A Square-Eyed Generation’ is not about my peers!
Thank you for listening.
