Topic：Live vs. television broadcast
Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Attending a live performance (for example, a play, concert, or sporting event) is more enjoyable than watching the same event on television. Use specific reasons and examples to support your opinion.
同意或者不同意都是片面的。讨论现场的好处(比如气氛好air of excitement；投入感强getting involved)和电视转播(television live show)的好处(比如，有解说commentary/commentator；多镜头various angle of view;镜头组接montage)，至于选择，要视情况而定。如果是中国甲A足球赛，才不去现场呢！生气。可是如果是有机会去看欧洲杯的话，不知道要比看电视过瘾(to one's heart's content)多少倍！如果是F4的演唱会，是绝对不能去的，电视也不看！可是如果是rolling rock的演唱会，就一定要去了——可惜，因为SARS取消了。
To many people, attending a live performance, such as a melodrama, a concert, or a sporting event is so incredibly attractive that they will goal out to get a ticket, regardless of the expense or the difficulty involved. But why not enjoy the performance on television while you can comfortably lie in your sofa or couch with popcorn at hand? That is because attending a live performance provides you with far more enjoyment than watch it on TV.
In a live performance, you will feel that you are in the company of many friends who are indulged in the same interest, who can share your sorrow or pleasure or excitement. This kind of resonance at heart is so rarely sensed in our daily life that this one reason itself is sufficient enough for many people to attend a live performance. While watching it on TV, we certainly find it hard to feel the emotion sharing, and our loneliness is hardly mitigated.
Furthermore, attending a live performance gives you a sense of participation that cannot be replaced by watching on TV. Live performance is an interaction between the audience and the performers, and both parts of the performance decide whether it will be a wonderful one. In this way, you may lament (哀叹，文中译为悲伤)or laugh, may sob or smile as you are so influenced by the misfortune or happiness of the characters. You may fall into the indescribable intoxication（难以言表的陶醉之中）while listen to a favorite piece of music. And correspondingly, the performers will receive the response of their audience and act accordingly. So the final success of the performance results also from the participation and interaction of the audience, of which you are a member.
With these foregone advantages, we may say that attending the live performance is definitely much more enjoyable than TV watching.
