Q：Are there any TV channels in your country that don 't have adverts?
A：No … they ’ re all commercial channels and show adverts all day long … too many really … and there ’ s also a lot of product placement going on … especially in soap operas where they place an item just behind the actors.
Q：Do you enjoy watching adverts on TV?
A：No … not really … I hate commercial breaks during a film … it really spoils the flow … and during prime time viewing they seem to squeeze even more ads in than usual … celebrity endorsements also get on my nerves … everyone knows they ’ re only doing it because they ’ re getting paid.
Q： What are the best ways for ordinary people to advertise something they want to sell in your country?
A：The simplest way is to place an advert in something like the classified ads section of a local paper … or there ’ s the Internet of course … there are lots of sites like eBay where you can buy and sell things online.
Q： What is it that makes an advert effective?
A：Well … when a company launches a product they have to consider the Internet … especially how it can be used to spread the word on social media … so in this context a video that goes viral is probably the most effective type of advert you could make.
Q: What are the advantages to companies of advertising on the Internet rather than TV?
A: I ’ d imagine the main advantage is you can reach your target audience much more effectively … if you bring out a niche product for example … or you have a tight advertising budget … you can advertise on particular sites that the people you want to reach visit … that ’ s not something you can do on TV.
Q: What things do advertising companies do that might give it a bad name?
A: For me the most irritating is cold calling … we must get two or three of these every day at work … then there ’ s junk mail that gets posted through the letterbox … and of course the online equivalent of this … spam emails … I think it ’ s this kind of advertising that tends to annoy people.>>>在线咨询更多雅思变题季预测
A couple with happy marriage 拥有幸福的婚姻的夫妻
I know a couple and both of them are my friends. The wife used to be my classmate and coincidently her husband and I used to work in the same company. Naturally, we become good friends and sometimes eat out together because all of us are foodies. That is why I know lots of stories about them. Specifically, they got married around 12 years ago, exactly 5 years after they fell in love with each other. At the beginning of their romance, they lived in two separate cities. I was told that they first met each other on line and then had a crash on each other.
Long-distance relationship was something hard for most of people so the guy went to the lady’s living city to settle down. He got a totally new life, including a new job, a new social circle and a new friend me. We worked together for three years and then he decided to further his education in Netherland. Without any hesitation, the girl went to EU with him.
Before they went abroad, they got married. I went to their wedding ceremony, a romantic and cozy one. During the ceremony, the guy gave all participants a short speech, saying that love was so pure that each one of the couple likes to sacrifice whatever she or he has for the other. That was also how they two got together. Undeniably, he firstly gave up all he had and began a new life in the city where the girl was in. And now, his wife gave up all she had to go abroad with him. That is what happiness is and what love is.
