Generation Gap

What do you think? Are there significant differences in outlook and attitudes between the different generations in Spain? Are there any aspects of one generation’s lifestyle that another generation finds difficult to understand? Do you believe there are any ways in which young people today behave worse, or better, than older people did at their age? Can you think of any examples of one generation having mistaken beliefs or assumptions about another?

I would like you to read a text on the views of three people about the differences between the generations in contemporary Britain.
