Talk about an article you recently read in a magazine or in a newspaper.
You should say:
- what you did and what you learned
- who went with you
- when you read it
and explain how you felt after reading the news.
I love to read newspapers on a regular basis, not only because it allows me to remain updated with the latest news, but also because it allows me to read some informative and interesting articles on various important issues. Talking about articles, of course, I would like to talk about one of them which I have recently read.
The article talked about how my country would be able to meet the housing demands of the ever-increasing population of my country without causing deforestation and waste of cultivable land. Of course, I had read such articles in the past, but none of those really went on to describe the crisis and its solution in as details as this particular article which just read about a couple of weeks ago in one of the popular daily newspapers of my country.
Anyway, the article went to describing in details as to how rapidly our population has increased over the last 50 years or so, and yet no concrete and timely-policy has been adopted to deal with this problem. And, as a result, as the article put it, if this trend continues, our country won’t have enough land to produce necessary food for its population soon as more and more lands are being used to build houses and other infrastructures in a very unplanned manner. At the end of the article, the author of the article tried to provide some pragmatic solutions to the housing crisis of our country by providing enough raw data and evidence. Needless to say, I read the article a few times just to understand the danger and challenges that lie ahead of my country if we are not serious enough about this problem.
Anyway, after reading the article, the first thing that came to my mind was that our government needed some concerted efforts to come up with new and innovative ideas in building efficient houses without wasting too much land. Besides, I also felt that until some practical housing policies are in place, the newspapers and other media outlets should publish such articles more often to raise awareness among the people.
