    It is obvious that the Internet and social media have become a part of 4.0 technologies. In a survey of 2019 by the Management Development Institute (MSD) and Save the Children in Vietnam, 66.1% of children had access to an Internet-connected device of which 43,4% had an average use of 1-3 hours per day.
    There is no denying that smart devices have brought plenty of benefits in our daily life. Smartphones or tablets are considered as crucial tools for parents in feeding children, teaching and entertaining them. However, many people are concerning the impact of 4.0 technology on children’s lives. Without smartphones, children will not eat and keep crying. The question is that “Do parents need to have the courage to put their phone down or learn to live with technology especially in educating your children?
     
    Questions to ponder:
    How long do you let your children/ cousins/ nieces use social media? Why do you let them use media?
    What are the pros and cons of allowing children to approach the Internet at a very young age?
    In your opinion, at which ages can children use mobile phones? Can you share some tips to raise children effectively in the 4.0 era?
    Case 1: You are so busy with an urgent task but your child is crying, what will you do, will you give him/her a mobile phone/TV or do something else?
    Case 2: Anytime you do not pay attention, your child will take your phone to play games or watch YouTube, etc. what will you do?

    Funny person

    How to describe a funny person in English (Part 1)

     

    Funny boy

    How do you describe someone who's funny in English? Of course you can say something like:

    She's funny.

    He's hilarious.

    But there lots of different ways that a person can be funny. They may tell funny stories, act silly, say odd things, tell jokes that they've heard, etc. So how do you explain exactly how someone is funny?

    Talking about a normal funny person

    First, let's learn how to talk about "normal" people who are funny: friends, family members, coworkers, and so on. Here are a few different kinds of funny people:

    • A goofy person does silly things, like funny dances and dressing in ridiculous costumes. They might make funny mistakes. You can also call this kind of person "a goofball".
    • A witty person is funny for the opposite reason: they say things that are funny and also very smart. Witty people are also quick with their jokes.
    • A prankster is someone who plays practical jokes on people. Practical jokes are tricks that confuse or scare someone for a short time.
    • A self-deprecating person makes jokes that make themself look bad. They joke about their own flaws and problems.

    You can also talk about what kind of sense of humor a person has.

    • Someone with a dry sense of humor often says funny things with a serious, calm expression. They don't smile, laugh, or make silly faces.
    • Someone with a quirky sense of humor thinks of things that are funny and strange. They like strange, unpredictable jokes.
    • Having a warped sense of humor means that you laugh at things that many people are afraid of or offended by. You might think that jokes about death, illness, and tragedy are funny. It might seem like having "a warped sense of humor" is bad, but it's not a really negative expression.
