Do you use the internet (very much)?
I am currently in my first year at college, so using the internet is a must. I need to hand in assignments and sometimes complete the quizzes through the college intranet. Aside from that, I also use the internet to gain access to entertainment resources such as movies, music or novels online.
When was the first time you used the internet?
I first accessed the internet when I was in grade six, which was about 7 or 8 years ago. I was in my English class and the teacher set up some online exercises for us, and it was the first time I learned what the internet was and how to use it.
Is the internet very important (or, useful) to you?
It is so important to me that I cannot imagine living a day without using it. The first reason is because most of my work and assignments require the use of the internet, like submitting
an essay to the professor, or doing some research using the information found on the Internet. Besides, I actually live quite far from my parents right now but we are still a close- knit family, so with the internet I can make video calls and keep in touch with all the family news.
Do think you can (or, could) live without the internet?
I actually experienced a time when I lived without the internet. It was before I entered grade six, and I felt completely fine. I’m not addicted to using the internet, but it would be impossible to pursue my studies without it.
Do you often (or, do you ever) buy things on the internet?
Yes, I love shopping online. The first time I did that was when I wanted to purchase a book which I couldn’t find at any bookstores in my city. I ordered and received it in just a few days, and it was in great condition. This was when I got really into online shopping – I started buying a lot of books online, and then other types of consumer products ever since
