    I will respond to (PERSON A = "I don't follow the news because it has nothing to do with me!")
    In my opinion, people from the age of 12 to the age of 40 should watch the news and follow it daily. We know that you have nothing to do with it, but some of them are important and the biggest example of that (climate change, Covid_19) should watch this news because it is me and you and they are all Who will save the world!
    (News that has nothing to do with you is like football or etc...!)

    I would say to (PERSON C)
    I totally agree with you! (It is very important for young people to know the news!)
    Because, in my opinion, to understand the political, social and economic events and changes in your region and around the world!
    A good example of this is our current topic (Environmental Change and Climate!)
    Because the most who will save us from this thing are (young men, whether female or male!) The small age are of course difficult for them to understand what is happening and the old ones are also difficult for them to do anything!

    Well, I would like to respond to the first person who says that he does not follow the news because he has nothing to do with it, and I tell him that I do not agree with him, because knowing the news is everyone's responsibility, and it makes us more educated about the news of other countries and their conditions.

  • British Council.jpg impartial_lute | Beit Hanoun Prep Girls A School | Occupied Palestinian Territory
    27 Jan 2022

    I do not agree with Person A because in reality everyone must see the news to know the events of the world and the events of his region, even if they are not related to him, because he will not be able to adapt and live with a place where he is ignorant of his news and cannot act in a place where his news is not known. The news, the news is light, and staying away from it is darkness

    Person C
    I agree with him first, because the news makes young people more aware, aware and understanding of what is going on around them in the world, through which they understand the cultures and customs of peoples and the policies of countries
    Secondly, it makes the youth more educated about global civilizations and life in all parts of the world of which we are a part. Young people must understand the world because they are the leaders of society who will push it to develop and progress.

    27 Jan 2022

    PERSON A = I would say I do not agree with you.
    Because does everyone who follows the news have a relationship with the news, of course not, so how do we know what is going on in the world? How do we know what to do? How do we protect ourselves? All of these answers are found in the news, for example, is it nice for you to go out of your house and see all the people talking about an important news story and you know nothing about it because you do not follow the news, the most successful people in the world consider news a mainstay in their lives and they have nothing to do with it.

    27 Jan 2022

    PERSON B = I would like to say that I do not agree with you, because there are many means to follow the news, such as radio, newspaper, etc., and there are people who do not have the money to buy a TV to follow the news, so you prefer to buy a newspaper and through it you understand the news, it does not differentiate the means in which we know the news, but it is important to understand news.

    27 Jan 2022

    I would like to tell Person C that I agree with him because these days young people lose interest in news and find it does not meet their interests. The lack of trust in the media has led to a widening gap between young people and the news, so the media must focus on this category to present what interests them and convince them.

    27 Jan 2022

    I want to tell A that I don't agree with you
    Because news provides a person with information and news, it is possible that if he is not informed of it, a danger will happen to him, and also a person is unable to know the news and events that occur in his country on his own from crises and problems that pose a threat to his life

    27 Jan 2022

    I would like to respond to Person A:
    I respect your opinion. Some of us do not keep up with the news constantly and do not have knowledge of all the news of the world, but surely they are aware of the most important news. It is necessary to follow important news from time to time to know the most important developments in the fields of health, for example, such as the developments of the Corona virus, for example, and knowledge of disasters and natural phenomena as well as others, to take caution and when there is a danger threatening us, which the news will inform us of from its various means.

  • British Council.jpg comfortable_contribution | Beit Hanoun Prep Girls A School | Occupied Palestinian Territory
    27 Jan 2022

    I would say I disagree with Person B because I think the phone might be the best way to catch up on the news. On TV, you can give an opinion of one person. On the phone, you may find many different opinions on a particular topic.
    The second reason is that when we want to watch the news quickly we have to wait for the channel to broadcast it. As for the phone, as soon as we look for the news, it comes quickly and in a short or detailed way.

You can learn more about issues such as: air pollution, climate change, Covid-19, endangered species and other information that is happening around the world.

  • Upton-Cross-logo-250x250.jpg diligent_flower | Upton Cross Primary School | United Kingdom
    27 Jan 2022

    To person A , I disagree with you because I believe that if something is important enough to be on the news then it will definitely affect you, for example if the government made it a law to wear your mask or you will be fined and you did not know (because you don't keep up with the news) you could be in a very bad situation, that is why I believe you should keep up with the news.

    27 Jan 2022

    I agree with Person B because television is hardly present in every home, so it makes it easier to spread the news to the largest number of people from all over the world, and it also makes it easier for people who cannot use technology to enjoy the news with ease because television is easy to use for young and old

  • British Council.jpg strong_buffalo | Asmaa Prep School | Occupied Palestinian Territory
    27 Jan 2022

    27 Jan 2022

New, it is necessary to deal with the news with caution, attention and vigilance to build the future, they understand the energy of change in society and they are the most ambitious, enthusiastic and rush towards change and progress

    27 Jan 2022

    PERSON C = "It is very important for young people to learn about the news."
    I agree with you, because we cannot deny the importance of news in daily life and society in general and its benefits for us young people as it gives us a greater perspective on what is going on around us and in the internal and external world, and increases our cultural knowledge and awareness of what is happening, and as (George Martin) said:  He lives a thousand lives before he dies, and he who does not read lives one life .

    27 Jan 2022

    I disagree with person A because in real life everyone should keep up with the news in case something
    serious happens in his/her city like for example the spread of the new variant or if your country is being
    attacked, and not only the news talks about serious situations but it can also provide information
    about entertainment in the city like circuses and more. So you should keep up with the news at all times.

    27 Jan 2022

    I agree with Person B because television has more credibility and accuracy in transmitting news than the Internet, which may transmit primary news that lacks credibility through personal pages and user accounts, and because television is in every home And the Internet is not in every home, and we grew up hearing news from television and not from the Internet.

  • British Council.jpg kind_cymbals | Shouka Prep Girls School | Occupied Palestinian Territory
    27 Jan 2022

    I agree with you B that TV is a good source of information but nowadays we have a variety of sources. The internet can be a more flexible source as you can dig deep and search for the news you hear and where it comes from. The most important thing to search for is the reliability of the news and whether we can trust it or not.

  • British Council.jpg charming_volcano | Khan Younis Prep A Girls School | Occupied Palestinian Territory
    27 Jan 2022

    To person A ,Iwould say that I disagree with you because news is the event in which there is a “visual” value and a “health” value in addition to one or more of the well-known news values ​​such as: interest, proximity, information, immediacy, impact ... and others, and it is technically and ethically suitable for television transmission and news plays a major role in increasing human awareness of the dangers that occur around it.

    I agree with: Person C, as young people have just as big of a voice as adults. However, may be some young people may not know how to use their voice or think they think they are not strong enough to disagree on an opinion. It is important young people read the news as young people can probably make a good discussion because of how much they know because they read the news.

    28 Jan 2022

    28 Jan 2022

    agree with person C because in my opinion the news is important in changing society for the better. This is on the positive side. For example, in light of these depressions, the news shows us that there are people who need our help, such as shelter, clothes, etc., so in our turn, we as young people do everything we can to help them even If we are not able, then our supplications will help them, even if only a little, as we know that young people are the most active group in society.

    PERSON A = I would say I do not agree with you.
    Because the news has the tools that are able to facilitate and simplify dialogue between different cultures, as it can address the prevailing attitudes and dispel bad ideas regarding the “other”, as it can cross the barrier of stereotyped perceptions, and remove the ignorance that supports fear and warns against dealing with them, to transfer to the human being.

    I say that I do not agree with Person B, it is strange that the best way to find out the news is through television, as I think it can be like that for women and not men. It will be on the mobile, not the TV
    if she was. The news spreads more the phone, it will include more people to increase their culture and help them understand what is happening in their country and society.

    To person C I'd like to say that I agree with because prioritizing the aspirations of young people enhances the sustainability of conflict prevention and resolution, and the involvement of youth and youth community leaders in peace efforts, decision-making and institutional reform processes provides an opportunity to develop areas that directly affect their lives. They are the hope of parents and the dream of grandparents 👍

    To PERSON B, I would like to say, I do not agree with you. There are better ways than TV to watch the news, especially in my city of Gaza. The electricity is not regular, so you can miss news episodes or important things related to the news and also you are not sitting on TV all day to see all the news And it reaches incompletely, unlike the Internet, so you can see any news or search for any topic and watch all the news from many mm news channels and in detail.

    I agree with reason No. C, because young people are the builders of the future and their connection to the world through news gives them the opportunity to learn about the latest developments in things and innovation and to understand what is happening around the world and develop it by providing them with their creativity and modern methods and keeping pace with development

    PERSON A= I disagree with you because although its nothing to do with you, you still should read/watch the news because you never know what you can find and it might be something important about your country. The news could give you a warning about something dangerous happening in the world and how to resolve this problem- if you dont follow the news you could be putting yourself in alot of danger and risk.

    Because following the news by phone is one of the visual media, and it works to increase people's awareness and familiarize them with other cultures; And that is by watching many of what is shown through these means of news, events, cultural and historical programmes, or even those documentaries that increase one’s ability to think critically about what the world is going through, and according to what I read that (visual media such as television is considered the most It has a lot of entertainment content) and this is what attracts others.

    Dear B, television is a good way to follow the news, but it's not the only one, and not the best. Television selects what they show to you, to make you think as some people want. Humans have become programmed robots, following the same path: consumption. It's this society that television channels advocate, and also some newspapers, magazines, radio channels... So be careful, when you watch television, and when you follow the news in general.

As for television and television channels, they are subject to strict control by certain parties such as the state and others. They give truthful news and deny rumors such as national channels to all country, and this is the best way, in my opinion, to obtain the wells, because this is considered a reliable source for obtaining truthful news .

A newspaper article can be more effective when looking deeply into a topic- it has more information and the stories can be truly expressed with the use of quotes, whereas a television broadcast cannot provide as much detail and can't truly dive deep into the story.

    Because television contains a sound that the ear can hear and an image that the eye can see, “it is not like the one who saw it.” Rather, a person finds it more difficult to ignore what passes before his eyes than he finds in ignoring what he hears. And when a person sits in a room with a TV, and whatever the importance he is doing, he cannot prevent himself from peeping every now and then to see the image displayed on the screen. While he is influenced by what he sees for reasons that are not related to logic and persuasion.

    I agree with person B because personally i learn more while having visual experience more than hearing words because i am more likely to forget, which the information could come in handy for the future.To add to this statement i would like to say that the incidents which is happening in the current time are crucial points for society in the near future.

    I agree with person C. This is because if young people do not look at today's news, they will not be able to learn from our mistakes and will make the same ones in the future.

    I disagree with person A because the news influences everyone and even if you think that one specific news story doesn't it could one day. Even if it doesn't ever affect you, it is still important to know what is going on in other parts of the world, the news can also impact how you think (for example if your area is in the middle of a heatwave and you haven't read the news then you would not know about other places in the world that were having major heat problems due to global warming).

    To person C, I would say that I agree with you because it is so important that young people know what is happening in their city, country and in the whole world too so that they learn about the news which will help them avoid being isolated from the world. For example, knowing about crimes and conflicts will make them more careful in their lives, and knowing about the good events can change their lives but for this, I think that they should pay more attention to having trusted sites and reliable sources for the news.

    Person B = I would agree and disagree with person B as I believe it is a good way to lean about the news but not the best way. Through television you could reach out to younger children in a way that interests them such as (Newsround): not everyone will watch television or have the access to it so it would not be the best way to reach the community especially communities in a lower class.

    I do not agree in any way with Person A as we all inhabit the same planet and what happens elsewhere will effect all places over the world. When a large scale event occurs, I believe that all people -as long as they have access to a news source- should attempt to create their own understanding about it in order to increase their abilities in later life and help them realise the world in which they live.

    I would respond to Person A because I totally disagree with them:
    Firstly, even though the news is not what you will like to do, you should keep tabs on it so you can be informed of very important news (Covid-19, Politics etc.) while still doing the things you love afterwards.

    Secondly, maybe the same news you dont care about will be your career path.
