  • 1. ESCOL A SECUND ÁRIA DE CA RVALHOS Language Portfolio My Dossier Assessment – Test correction February 2012 Listening Test Correction – The Media and Global CommunicationThe term “Media” identifies the main ways that are used by a large number of people to receive (and emit) information; it alsoprovides people with entertainment.Read the texts you heard and correct the listening activities A. The global Communication revolution is gathering pace. The Internet is not only a good information medium but also frequently used for entertainment; a lot has changed since the print medium was the only form. Many of my friends read the news online when they arrive at the office. Personally I prefer watching the news bulletin on TV while I have breakfast. However I really love listening to the radio when I am travelling to work, it’s very entertaining. My friends also like listening to the radio for entertainment, but when they have free time, they love playing Internet games, too. I dislike online games I think they are addictive, but then I am addicted to watching crime series on TV in my leisure time. The newspaper is not very popular with my friends; I don’t like reading the newspaper either. However most of my friends read informative magazines to get political and international news. I love doing puzzles in magazines at the weekend. What about you? What is your relationship with the media? Self madeIdentify the forms of media usage mentioned.
