1.What activities do teenagers in your country like to do?
Well, they do anything that lets them enjoy their time, I guess, for example, doing shopping and hanging out with friends, watching online videos and meeting new people.
2.Do you often spend time with teenagers?
Oh yes. I am an adolescent myself, so the majority of my friends are teenagers and we spend quite a bit of time together.
3.What is the best part of being a teenager in your country?
Oh, I think it is having many possibilities, unlimited potential, no time boundaries, and feeling mighty, as a result.
4.Do you think it is good to be a teenager?
Definitely. The life of teenagers is always hopeful and promising with enough chances to try and to make mistakes, which is actually a period for them to learn dealing with different problems and going through various kinds of mental and physical changes. In addition, they don’t have to face the heavy living pressure.
Although apparently they have limited freedom and rights, and they are likely to feel lonely and confused on the way of growth.
make mistakes 犯错
deal with problems 处理问题
go through 经历，度过
mental and physical changes 身心改变
living pressure 生活压力
Not really. As teenagers are neither mature enough to have freedom to do something they are really into nor strong enough to earn money to support their livings and dreams. In fact, most of them totally have no idea what they should do in the future.What’s worse, they have to be controlled or supervised by their parents and teachers everyday, which is kind of depressing and bothering.
How to Have a Good Teen Life如何拥有美好teen生活？9步实现
As a teenager, you'll be starting high school, making new friends, and most likely dating. Your hormones are racing the most in these few years, so it can be quite a roller coaster ride, but by the time you are a junior or senior, they are settled. Make the best of it by taking the advice below, so that you can remember good things from the past when you are an adult. You will be an adult soon enough, but you will experience many different changes on the way!
Step1 Have a healthy social life. 健康社交
As simple as this may be, a healthy social life is the key to enjoying your life in spite of the stress of school. Shop with friends; enjoy buying clothes and accessories. Go to a theme park, water park, or a few trips. Try to make at least two best friends, and try to make many friends from your gender and two or three the opposite gender for diversity. Go to arcade places, bowling, or teen clubs and places; this will be the best interaction with other teenagers or people around your age.
2 Have hobbies at home. 在家有爱好
Sew, read, play computer games, draw, or do yoga. Get a and/or Facebook account, but try not to get addicted to it. Make videos with your friends and post them on YouTube. Check online to see the hottest new music and the coolest new artists and songs of your genre of choice. You don't have to be a fan of pop music only; if you like to listen to your grandma's '50s doo wop albums or some nice relaxing smooth jazz or Bob Marley, go ahead Be a fan of your favorite sports team. Find whatever you enjoy doing and do it! Start a movie or book collection.
3 Be creative.有创新精神
Show off your talents. Write music, write stories and poems, create cool drawings, learn how to create web pages and computer programs, create your own clothes, cook, bake, work on a car, play an instrument, etc.
4 Get the latest accessories. 与时俱新
Get cable TV and watch shows and films of your preference; family-style programming such as Disney Channel, Nickelodeon, ABC Family and WGN, or maybe intense drama the likes of Burn Notice or Justified. Maybe you can watch some classics such as Little House on the Prairie and Gunsmoke, even if they are from your parents or grandparents generation. If you are more of a carefree, lighthearted person, maybe anime or animated sitcoms such as Family Guy or The Simpsons will be good for you. Get an Xbox 360, PS3 or a Wii to play fun and interactive games in your spare time. Most importantly, get a mobile, PDA, iPod, PSP, MP3 player, iPhone, BlackBerry, or digital camera. Ask for these for your birthday or on Christmas, or any other day you celebrate.
5 Think of your own fashion. 找寻自己时尚
Be yourself and see what looks good on you (makeup and clothing attire). Whether it's face makeup (lip gloss and mascara) or body lotion, you got to be decent out the door, right?
6 Watch what you eat.关注自己的饮食
Eat healthy foods and use junk foods either in moderation or as a treat. Try to have a good amount of water in your system and eat at least one big meal a day; more if you have high metabolism or in sports.
7 Study hard in school. 好好学习
Always turn in your homework on time and do well on tests. Education is the most important thing in your life; doing poorly, not trying, or dropping out of school can hurt your future in a significant way. If you are getting bad grades because you are struggling with something, get help. But if you are just being lazy, or procrastinating, it can certainly affect your college and career opportunities in the future.
8 Get involved. 勇于参与
School has many things for you to become involved in and have fun doing. Getting involved will help you in future years(look good on your college application) and you'll meet a lot of people. Like chess? You can be in the chess club, if the school doesn't have a club you wish you were in (say bowling club) you can create your own! This will help you be motivated in school.
9 Listen to your parents. 学会倾听父母
Yes, as crazy as it sounds, it will make your life so much more easy and enjoyable if you just listen to your parents, so you don't have to hear them keep yelling at you! Obeying them will actually be an easy way into getting what you want, remember it has to be a 50/50 cooperation, not 80/20. You parents might be not be as up to date as you, but they may give you good timeless advice. They are in the real world, not the "surreal teen world". They had been teenagers just like you and you don't want to know what they did in high school, but they had learned from their mistakes which makes them the stodgy parents you have today. Just wait, you'll become the stodgy parent too when you have your own kids.
