    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?

    How can you find English speakers to talk with?

    One complaint I often hear from English learners is that it's hard to find people to practice with.

    I agree that it can be hard. You have to change your habits to put yourself in new situations where you get more English practice. It takes a little bit of bravery. You have to be willing to speak with strangers, even though it may be a little uncomfortable.

    But where do you actually find English speakers? Here are a few of my ideas — some simple and some a little crazy.

    • Go to the site Meetup.com and search for an English-based group in your city that matches one of your interests.
    • Try a language exchange site like Verbling.com.
    • If you're living or studying abroad in an English-speaking country, take a class on something other than English: an exercise class, cooking class, accounting, computer programming, etc.
    • Hire a tutor.
    • Advertise some service, like babysitting, guiding tours, doing translations, etc. to English speakers in your area.
    • Print a T-shirt that says "I speak English" and wear it around everywhere. Maybe another English speaker will comment on it and you can strike up a conversation with them.
    • Go to a classified ads site like Craigslist.com and look for people who are advertising things. Call them up and ask them questions about whatever they're advertising.
    • Go to a bar or club that you've heard a lot of English-speaking foreigners go to.

    But this list is way too short and not nearly creative enough. I need your help! How have you found English-speaking friends or language exchange partners in the past? What else could you do to create opportunities for yourself to practice? The more creative the idea, the better!
