Middle

And: What kind of language is there in most of the TV programs you watch on English, Swedish or any other language? I choose to ask how many hours per day instead of week because it's easier to count. It's always easier to ask teenagers about their habits, the easiest way is always the best way! My aim with this survey is to give an overview of how much we use the English language in Sweden and I am also going to find some disadvantages and advantages with the television. I will go straight to the diagrams and let you see the results so you always can be able to look up and see the results and draw your own conclusions when you read my discussions. Discussion The aspects I think is important to look on are: The big overtake on English programs and all the hours people are watching TV, is it good or bad?

Conclusion

But there is a limit. Like many other things you also need exercise to keep fit. Bad health could be a big problem with all the staring on the television.

The conclusion I can draw is that it is good to look although television but there is a limit and it also depends on the health of the person if the health is low the person got to look less on TV and exercise more. So it's booth advantage and disadvantage to look on the television according to me but the advantage has the majority. How do I learn the English language? Most of the English that I have learnt comes just from movies and programs even I don't realize it. It's a matter of course that the basics and grammar come from the school. But I think speaking English fluently comes from movies and television programs. Another important source to the English language is of course to be in an English speaking country.
