The TV Program That I Like(Essay)
The TV Program That I Like
My favorite entertainment is to watch TV, but I won’t see all kinds of program. I only choose the ones that will give me the good effects. Perhaps someone may say that watching TV is just an interesting thing, and they also say it’s unnecessary to look for the program that would enlarge our knowledge. But, in fact, watching TV would waste us a lot of time and decrease the efficiency of thinking, and we have to find the meaningful programs for avoiding losing our precious time and energy. And I’m going to introduce the TV programs that I like, such as the information about the knowledge of science, language learning, and the information about geography.
First, my favorite channel about science is Discovery channel. It always introduces every kind of modern invention, natural phenomenon, astronomical knowledge, and so on. And the channel usually talks in English, so I also can improve my listening ability through watching it.
Second, I often watch Formosa News Channel, which reports the local and international news in English. In addition, there is Chinese subtitle, and I felt it’s a good opportunity for practicing my listening comprehension. It not only has news report but also teaches the difficult vocabulary and phrases that appeared in the news. I suggest everyone who wants to learn English well should watch it regularly.
Third, the National Geographical Channel is another channel that attracts me. It introduces the important information about the geography of the globe. For instance, it introduces the magnificent natural view around the world, and it talks about the special building style in every continent. Besides, it also mentions the customers, habits, and history that exists every country. I thought the channel is really useful for me, because I got a lot of knowledge that can’t be learned from textbooks.
Although many people said watching TV would make us become stupid, I consider we still can learn some useful things through TV. Because if we can spend some time searching the good channels, we will find TV is also a good tool for learning.
