1. Speaking Part 1: Jean
Do you wear jeans?
→ Yes, I have many pairs of jeans in my wardrobe because they are very durable. Like the one I am wearing, it hasn’t yet stretched out, although I washed it many times.
How often do you wear jeans?
→ I wear them on a daily basis. I mean, I am sick of formal attire like shirts or trousers that I have to wear in my workplace. That’s why I always choose a pair of jeans, mixed with a short-sleeved T-shirt and a denim jacket when I go out.
Do people in your country like wearing jeans, why?
→ Yes, jeans are the clothing of choice for the majority of Vietnamese people, especially the youth, as they are very easy to mix and match. In the past 2 decades, people in my country loved wearing flare jeans, but skinny jeans are now on trend.
When do you need to focus?
→ At all times, I guess. I find it necessary to stay focused while driving, doing assignments and so on, but I considered myself as an easily distracted individual. I mean, my mind often wanders while I am driving, doing homework or doing something repeatedly.
What may distract you when you are trying to stay focused?
→ There are a variety of distractors around me, like the notification bell of Facebook and similar social networking sites. Yeah, it’s embarrassing to say that I am a Facebook addict, so I can hardly concentrate while using it. Besides, I can also lose my concentration by other people’s gossip which takes place near my desk.
What do you do to help you concentrate?
→ The best way to improve my concentration is by doing yoga. I’ve just participated in this activity for a few weeks, and I can feel that I am having a healthier mind day by day. One of my friends advised me to take up mediation next summer as this also helps me focus better on my work, so I think I will give it a shot.
