IDEAS for Comparing Questions

1. What’s the difference between things made by hand and things made by machines?

  • Machine made (A machine made product is basically made from start to finish by a machine or mechanical device)
    can be made quickly compared to its handmade version
    provide nearly identical products
    has cheaper prices
  • Handmade
    requires a lot more labour intensive and is generally associated with high end products
    no two handmade products are identical
    tends to last much longer and perform better over time

2. Which do you prefer eating, fast or home-made food? 

Reasons to choose fast food
– time saving
– convenient and easy to find in many places
– provide a variety of choices
Reasons to NOT choose home-made food
– time consuming

Reasons to choose home-made food
– much healthier than fast food (natural and fresh ingredients, appropriate portion size)
– cost saving
Reasons to NOT choose fast food
– usually uses low quality ingredients
– most are high in sugar, sodium, fat,…

3. Which do you prefer reading, online or printed newspaper?

  • easy access to a wide variety of newspapers published online
  • online newspaper page gives more freedom to find some additional information
  • newsprint version does not contain any advertisements which may distract reader’s attention
  • newspapers usually give an opportunity to choose from different languages
  • online newspapers give an opportunity to discuss the topic on forum, e-mail other readers or editors themselves
  • online articles may be renovated or improved, unlike printed ones

 4. What has changed in people’s lives in your country for the past few decades?

– be able to travel longer distances in a short period of time
(past: planes = expensive means of transport -> not easily accessible
now: availability of fast, comfortable cars and cheaper travels by plane)

– be able to work more comfortably
(past: human do almost all the work
now: computers and other machines do most of the difficult and dangerous tasks)

– have better living conditions
(now: available bathrooms and running water in many houses
household appliances like fridge, TV sets or vacuum cleaners no longer considered luxurious goods)

– easier access to education
(past: fewer schools, poorer education’s quality
now: most educational materials can be found in the Internet)

5. Are there any differences between the types of people who were seen as celebrities in the past and those who are celebrities nowadays?

– past (before TV): very few national or international celebrities
(household names = kings and queens, military, political and religious leaders)
– now (after the advent of TV, radio and the availability of the Internet):
-> performers such as actors and musicians became more well-known
-> a completely new breed of celebrity as a result of ‘reality’ shows (who are famous for just being themselves)

6. What is the difference between houses built in the past and now?

Well obviously there are quite a lot of dissimilarities between houses built a long time ago and those recently built. To begin with, these days, completely different materials such as fire-retardant, sound and noise proof are used to build modern houses to provide people better living conditions. Additionally, house designs have changed drastically over time. Admittedly, old houses look more picturesque, having their own characters, while those built recently appear to be dull as they are mass produced most of the time. However, to make up for the lack of characters, they have the modern conveniences so necessary nowadays.

7. What are the differences in sizes of houses? Why?

In terms of size, modern houses are certainly smaller than what they used to be. This is partly due to the ever-growing population, making it much harder to own a large piece of land, and partly because of the decreasing size of the average family in most parts of the world. People have fewer children per family, and unlike in the past, when several generations shared a house, today young people move out as soon as they can afford to have their own place.
