2. Các câu hỏi thường gặp về Going Out

Do you go out a lot? 

These days, I don’t go out as much as I used to, but I still like to go out to bars or nightclubs every now and then. And I always jump at the chance to hang out with my friends at a coffee shop or in the park, shooting the breeze and just chilling. 

What activities do you like to do during a day out?

Answer 1: My ideal day out would definitely include a hefty meal at one of my favourite restaurants, with a group of my close friends. I also love going the cinema and catching up on the latest blockbuster releases. 

Answer 2: Well, my favourite way to spend a day out surely would be to go the beach and spend the entire day swimming in the sea, soaking up the sunshine because sunshine makes me happy and just watching the world go by. 

Do you like spending your day out alone or with others? 

As an introvert, I’m always very comfortable spending time alone, and find it easy to have fun by myself. Having said this, I would actually prefer to spend a day out with other people. Usually the best experiences are ones that are shared. 

What outdoor activity would you like to do in the future? 

Answer 1: I’d like to do more rock climbing. I’ve done it a bit in the past and it’s right up my street but unfortunately now I live a long way from any mountains so it’s difficult to find time to travel. However, I would never pass up any potential opportunity to climb again in the near future. 

Answer 2: Well, there is a long list of activities which I plan to do in future if I get a chance. However, on the top of that list would be going jogging in the park. I believe jogging will bring tremendous benefits such as refreshing your mind, calm your soul and effectively relieve your stress especially when you are under pressure from the fast-paced living. The fresh and quiet atmosphere in the park totally enables me to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
