IELTS Essay 36 Volume 6 (V6E36)

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. Do you agree or disagree with the following statement?

(a) Attending a live performance is really more enjoyable than watching the same event on television. As I am very interested in football matches, I have experienced that watching a football match at a stadium is not comparable with watching the same thing on TV. I never forget the first time that I went the stadium and the match is inscribed in my mind. It was an unforgettable event.

At a live performance, you can see everything that is not possible on TV. Cameras zoom on special scenes and you cannot see what is going on the rest of the stage. For example, at a football match, the cameraman always tries to see the ball and its related events. When you are watching a football match on TV you cannot see that a player kicks another one because it is out of stage. But when you are present at the stadium you can easily see it.

On the other hand, you can cheer and boo and even cry in a live performance. A crowd like you has attended the match. All cheer and shout together and it encourages you to take part in their happiness. This is really enjoyable. Imagine you were attending Michael Jackson show then you could dance, whistle and cheer. This was not the case when you were at home. You might be alone because others did not like that specific show or they wanted to study. So you could neither dance nor cheer. You had to sit before T.V and turn down its voice. It is not enjoyable at all.

Another advantage that you achieve by virtue of attending a live performance is that you can have the feeling of participating in the performance. Every thing is live. If it is a football match for instance, then it is as if you were playing yourself. You were part of the match and could sense the kicks of the players on the ball.

Above all advantages, there is only one disadvantage. It is that you must pay money to buy the ticket and spend time to reach the location of the performance. But it does not matter for me. By considering that I can achieve many things like seeing any event, cheering and shouting and feeling that I am participating in the performance are with no doubt unforgettable and highly enjoyable. I myself attend a football match even if it was in another country and it would cost me money and time.

(b) Some people enjoy a live concert, but I am disagree with attending the live performance and there are lot of reasons from both, which we are going to discuss in detail today.

I enjoyed on TV because when we are watching on TV it’s very easy to understand which player or performer is doing what and you can also have a chance to see in replay if you miss for some reason. When you seeing on TV it’s easy to understand the game and performance because of close circuit camera. You can also see closely the face of the performer or the player, score of the game and other events. You do not have to face the hassle of going anywhere, driving, money and time.

In home or with your friends when you are watching on TV your whole group can watch without spending any money, you can enjoy a lot on TV when you are watching with group in your own place instead of sitting uncomfortably in stadium. In stadium around you, you have a lot of peoples, noises, cannot even see if somebody is standing ahead you and you can understand the voice of the person who is just sitting next beside to you. And if you are sitting on rear seats then you cannot even see the game or live performance properly you just see the small human beings who are just moving.

You cannot understand the game/ performance properly because of all above hazards.And there is no replay opportunity if you miss first time; especially in games the goals and the response of players are very fast.

When you are going to watching the live games / performances then you have to spend the money for buying the tickets and other eating stuff costly as compare to open market, because in stadiums everything is costly as compare to market. If you are watching with your family then you have to careful about the safety of your kids & family due to large crowd

As per all above discussion I think it is better that you can see the game and other functions in home on TV instead of going out for live telecast.
