1. Describe the differences between two singers that you are familiar with. Include reasons and examples to support your response.
Michael Jackson and Elvis Presley are two very different singers. Michael Jackson is known as the King of Pop and Elvis Presley is known as the Kind of Rock. They are both known for their odd sense of style. If you are dressed in a bedazzled bellbottom pant suit, everybody will say you are dressed like Elvis. If you wear a white t-shirt, black pants, a black fedora, and a single glove, everybody will say you are dressed like Michael Jackson. Both died young and both were known for their amazing performance abilities. The style of music both singers performed, however, was very different. Elvis would serenade with a smooth voice and the rhythmic strumming of his guitar. Michael Jackson would get everybody dancing with an up-tempo chorus and a strong back beat.
2. Some people prefer to get advice from their parents or grandparents. Others prefer to get advice from their peers. What way do you prefer and why?
When I need really important advice, I always go to my parents. For example when I made the decision to study in America, I didn’t ask what my friends thought about it, I asked my parents. My parents have had a lot of experiences, and I know they can give the best advice when it comes to important life decisions. My friends are always there to support me, but they don’t have much more experience than I do, so they usually can just tell me to make the choice that feels right to me. When I talk to my parents, they help me see the pros and cons of a situation. I always feel very confident with my decisions after I discuss my options with my parents.
