OK, I’m now going to give you a topic and I’d like you to talk about that topic for one to two minutes. Before you start to talk, you’ll have one minute to think about what you’re going to say. You can make notes if you wish on this paper. Do you understand?
I'd like you to describe a news report.
Describe a news report that you have recently heard or read about. You should say: what the story was how you heard about this story when you heard the news and explain your reaction when you heard the news.
OK, so remember you have one to two minutes for this, so don't worry if I stop you. I'll tell you when the time is up. Can you start speaking now please?
OK, we've been talking about a news report and now I'd like to discuss with you one or two more general questions related to this.

Do you think the media have too much power?
How is today’s media different from that of 30 years ago?
