Do you like singing?


(Answer 1)


Yes, I do, but sad to say, I don’t have a good singing voice. I think I’m tone-deaf, but that doesn’t stop me from loving singing because singing is my way of relieving my stress. When I sing, I forget about my worries. 


(Answer 2)


Definitely not! Although I love listening to music and I have a wide interest in music genres, sadly I can’t carry a tune. I just hate my singing voice. How I wish I was born with extraordinary singing voice skills, I would’ve been a famous singer now. 




Tone-deaf [adj.] – unable to distinguish differences in pitch in musical sounds 

Relieve [verb] – alleviate 

Genre [noun] –  category 

Carry a tune [phrase] – to be able to sing the correct musical sounds of a tune


When do you sing?


(Answer 1)


Like I said earlier, I sing when there are special occasions. My friends and I usually spend time at karaoke when one of us celebrates something special like birthdays. That’s when I usually sing my heart out. 


(Answer 2)


I don’t sing at all. I don’t have the confidence to sing, as I said, I really hate my singing voice so I’m doing myself a favor not to sing at all. All of my friends know that, and they have already given up on encouraging me to sing and I’m happy about that. 




Sing one’s heart out [phrase] – to sing one’s heart out

Give up [phase] – stop making an effort 


Will you take singing lessons in the future?


(Answer 1)


Honestly, I’m currently taking voice lessons these days. It’s fun as I get to understand some techniques in singing like proper breathing, having the correct posture, warming up my voice before singing, things like that. So far, I’ve been doing well and I’m so proud of the improvements I have made recently. I think in no time, I’ll be able to sing pleasantly. 


(Answer 2)


No, never in my wildest dream to take singing lessons. It’s the last thing I want to do. I may sound pessimistic to you but there’s no point in taking voice lessons as it won’t help develop my career. I’d rather spend money on taking lessons that are related to my profession. 




The last thing I want [phrase] – something you certainly do not want

Pessimistic [adj.] – being negative


Did you enjoy singing when you were younger?



(Answer 1)


I believe so, although I can’t recall some memories, I do believe I did enjoy it. Well, anyway, I think it’s normal for kids to love singing. As we know, parents and teachers sing a lot to make their children or students feel happy. It’s also one of the best ways for children to learn ABCs and numbers. 


(Answer 2)


Yes, I remember I had this English teacher who always started the class with a song. We needed to sing altogether and dance at the same time. It was really enjoyable, and it made us energetic. I think it was her way to make us motivated to study well in her class. 




Recall [verb] – remember 

At the same time [phrase] – simultaneously
