This week’s competition entries proved that you all have some great responses ready to use in discussions about the news. This time our two winners are from the same part of the world - Occupied Palestinian Territory! They are…
best_passionfruit of Jabalia Prep Girls A School, who disagreed that watching television is the best way to learn about the news and gave examples to show why
determined_deer of Beit Hanoun Prep Girls A School, who explained that it is very important for young people to learn about the news because of the “lack of trust in the media”.
We were impressed by the simplicity and clarity of your explanations - so well done!

Everyone has different opinions about news stories - sometimes you will agree with people, but sometimes you won't. The most important thing is knowing how to respond so that you can keep the discussion going.
Your challenge this week is to choose one of the people below and say how you would respond to their opinion.
Your response should be NO LONGER THAN TWO SENTENCES.
PERSON A = "I don't keep up with the news because it's nothing to do with me!"
PERSON B = "The best way to learn about the news is by watching television."
PERSON C = "It is very important for young people to learn about the news."

- Make your entry personal to YOU
- You could structure your entry like this: To PERSON X, I would say..."I agree/disagree with you because..."
