Yes, I do. I work as a teaching assistant in my teacher’s office, where I can read a large amount of newspapers of home and abroad every day, during which I can know more about the international politics. I am totally attracted by it.
Honestly, I seldom read newspapers because I will have to pay a certain amount of subscription fee and spend much time in waiting for them to be mailed to my house every day if I want to read them. This is indeed very inconvenient today when I can just get to know what’s going on for the world through the Internet.

4) How old were you when you first started to read newspapers?
It was probably six ｏｒ seven when I first read newspapers.

As a result, I started early yet I didn’t read much newspapers.
5) Do you think it’s important to read newspapers? (Why?/Why not?)

I would say that they help me understand and appreciate foreign nations without the necessity of going to these places.

12) What are some methods that newspapers use to attract readers?
I guess there are various ways for newspapers to apply, like adding more columns in the entertainment section and making their headlines more attractive to readers.

Surely, the method brings the newspaper more readers.
