Bài mẫu IELTS Writing Task 2 và Từ vựng GHI ĐIỂM – Chủ đề Entertainment



Some believe that it is good for a country’s culture to import films and TV programmes, while others think it is better for a country to have their own films and TV programmes.

Discuss both views and give your own opinion

Band 8 Sample

There has been a difference of opinion regarding the merits of foreign movies and TV channels to the culture of a country  as people believe domestic products would be better. From my perspective,   both   of   those   categories   are   equally    important.

On   the   one   hand,   people   usually    believe    foreign    films and telecasts can   contribute   to the   cultural   diversity of   a nation. Fascinating social norms and practices, such as public hugging which is common in the US, can be imported to other nations   as   Hollywood blockbusters are   becoming   more  popular. This phenomenon is believed to benefit the richness of the host country’s traditional backgrounds. Furthermore, the import of international movies and TV shows could improve  the country’s sets of beliefs. In Vietnam, for example, the ceremony of funerals is often perpetuated  with ongoing depraved  customs such  as gambling and drinking. Since the arrival of TV shows from more developed nations, which triggers a new and civilized way of thinking, such practices have been gradually aborted.

On the other hand, it appears to me that producing local movies and TV programs has the same importance. Citizens of a country would be able to acquire knowledge about their own culture. Apparently, profound insights into traditional values can be vividly conveyed in cinemas and in the media if the content is made by local people. The second point is that this way can relieve the worry of cultural assimilation which has emerged as a detriment to the existence of a country’s traditional beliefs and  customs. In  fact,  if exotic  practices are absorbed thoughtlessly, it might lead to the oblivion of the  long-standing ethics.

In conclusion, I would argue that both types of films and TV telecasts play an equal role in a country’s culture.
