What’s your opinion of the types of music? I think opera is boring, but I love rap.
But in my opinion, …

What genre do you prefer? (You can use these adjectives to describe your opinions about things you like or dislike.)
Ask for a person’s opinion

Do you really like it? I like it very much. I don’t like it at all.
How do you like it? I like it a lot. I don’t like it a bit.
Is this OK? I really like it very much. I can’t stand it.
Is this all right? I love it.
3.What about today’s music? Do we understand it or do we just love the noise it makes? Do you agree with the speakers?
“No one is interested in the lyrics today, are they? It’s the music that is important.” Eva, Budapest.
“I’m astonished how popular opera is now. I think it’s due to singers like Pavarotti and Domingo”. Sinead, Cork.
“I’m bored with so much British and American rock. Why can’t we hear more music from other countries?” Jeanne, Paris
4. What is your favourite track?
Alex Roomer interviewed Californian teenagers about their favourite Linkin Park tracks.
a) “I really like Runaway because it pushes the rap/rock genre to new heights.” Daniel, 19
b) “I dig (slang/ love) Runaway because it has an honest look at the teenage psyche”. Emma, 16
c) “The rap-rock explosion known as Linkin Park can’t fail. They have an amazing sound, they speak to people our age. The best song is Runaway.” Bryan, 20.
d) “Papercut is my jam (slang/favourite music). I like playing it as loudly as I can in my car stereo and driving really fast. It’s a really intense beat and the guitar parts rock really hard. The lyrics are absolutely incredible, and I really feel how the singer fills.” Edward, 18.
e) “In the End” is really catchy (slang/easy to remember), I can sing to it. The song is really well orchestrated”. Lorna, 19.
