Talking About Music
Mike and Jessie are talking about their music preferences…
Mike: Jessie, we really need to revise for tomorrow’s test…
Jessie: I know. Do you mind if I play some music in the background while we’re revising?
Mike: No, I don’t mind. I’ve heard that certain types of music can be beneficial for learning
and can improve our ability to process information.
Jessie: Exactly! Apparently, the best music for learning is classical music. Do you like
Mike: Honestly, not really…I prefer modern music like pop or rock music. What about you?
What music do you like listening to?
Jessie: I don’t mind classical music. In fact, I quite like it.
Mike: Why do you like it? It seems kind of boring to me…
