T1: Which of the following ways is the best in getting to know Italian culture, 1. Watching Italian movies 2. Learning Italian cooking 3. Attending Italian lectures or history classes
Well, I do admit watching movies and learning cooking really help in getting to know a nation’s culture, like if you watch ne with the Wind, you get to know the history of the Civil War (1861-1865) in the US, and if you learn how to make dumplings, you also get the chance to know Chinese culinary culture and the dumplings’ symbolic meaning in Chinese people’s life. But in my opinion, the best and fastest way to know the Italian culture is still to attend Italian lectures or history classes. Coz with the lecturer’s professional illustration and well-designed classes, you get the chance to learn Italian culture in a more academic and systematic way.
T2: which do you prefer? To buy the newly released e-product as soon as possible or wait for a while, then decide whether you want to buy it or not?
I would like to wait for a while to buy, coz first, most e-products’ prices fluctuate a lot after they first enter the market, which usually get much lower after a few months. Since I am a student, I don't have extra money to burn, so there is no reason to rush, and it doesn't hurt to wait for a while, and then I can use the saved money to do something more meaningful, like buying books or stationery; also if we wait for a while, there will be a lot of feedbacks, comments or evaluations in the market on the product, so we could give the purchase a second thought, or compare the product with other similar brands to get a more suitable one.
