I have conversations about old photos with my family. I often chat on telegram canal sending or getting old photos from or to my friends.
I didn't learn any new words as all of them are familiar to me.

Of course, I had some conversations on these topics. I've been on plenty of job interviews and discuss them with my friends and family. And I also tried to see Mona Lisa and also failed, actually. You just can't come nearer because of the crowd. And yeah, I think we take too many photos on our holidays. And then, after returning, we look at them at the most ones or twice. I used to take tons of photos in my past travelings but now I prefer to enjoy the moment of relaxation but not being a photographer only.
However, I like to view some old photos. It's funny how we change through time.

Yes, I had a similar conversation about taking a photo when traveling. taking a photo is great, but first, we need to enjoy the view before it. it may be our last chance to come to those places, so we need to memories that beautifully.

Yes, I already had a similar conversation but in my native language and also learned new phrases.

well, I had the same conversation like the third one with my roomate yesterday. We showed our old school and classmates together. It is great to look back these memories.

Yes, I had a conversation similar too the second one. And, I think the same about taking a lot of photos. We'd better enjoy our moments than just try to take photos or videos to show them to people or post them on social media. Well, a few photos for the family or friends to remember the good time spent together are fine but when you are always going around with the camera or the phone in hands taking photos instead of appreciating your holidays and having fun, it simply does not make sense.

Yes, I've had similar conversation, specially, A,B and D. I learned new phrase it's Who did it go ?

Yes,I’ve had a similar conversation. I learn some new phrases: Really? ,What happens? ,Gotcha, That’s interesting, Right, Pardon?....

yes, i already had this kind of conversation with my parents or my friends. i've learn a lot in this coneversation, because at the moment i'm trying to study english by myself and i hope that i will be able to improve my level.

In my view, writing an essay or assignment for college and school is not very difficult. When I was a student, I wrote many essays. But in an academic research, it will be hard to write. There are many important things or points to be noted. First of all, we should be free from all kinds of judgments and should use academic norms and terminologies which maintain many different types of methods and epistemologic approaches from one field to another. Secondly, we should study hard to find a good theory that can explain our subject. Thirdly, we must collect a lot of data and analyse them based on our theory which is accepted by our research. Finally, after all these things, time is to make a deduction. We should carefully compare our data with our presumptions and answer to questions/ problem adequately.
Indeed, writing an essay is not very difficult, if we have enough sources and time. We should work hard, and it will not be easy, if we don't want to sustain any discomfort.
