  • 1. Name: _____________________ Surname__________________ Form :___ Class: ___ N.:___ Evaluation: ____________ Teacher Signature: __________Parents’ Signature: _____________ OObbss..:: I Read the text very carefully. The Importance Of Radio Radio plays a major role in many listeners’ lives. There are listeners that don’t know what they listen to and don’t care much but most of the people talk about “their” station as if it was an integral part of their everyday lives, even a “close friend”. Radio is a source of companionship, energy and intellectual stimulation; at the same time, it is a source of relaxation and escape. The results of a survey about the importance of radio say that 21 per cent of the people consider radio “absolutely essential”; 70 per cent “important” in different areas and only 9 per cent consider radio “not at all important”. Radio is especially important to women. Radio can also reach communities at the very end of the development road – people who live in areas with no phones and no electricity. Radio reaches people who can’t read or write. Even in very poor communities, radio penetration is vast. There are more than 800 million radios in third world countries. An average of one in ten people has a radio. These people need practical information, they don’t have internet access, they don’t have regular access to telephone, so the only choice is radio. So, we can agree with the statement: If we couldn’t listen to radio, we could feel something very important was missing from our life.
