What is Entertaiment?


Entertaiment, from the French word for “amusement,” is a wide field that encompasses everything from a meal prepared at home for two to performances staged in large theaters and broadcast globally. Entertainment also includes play, which is an essential part of children’s growth that teaches them about society and other people (through dolls, pets and group games); develops skills (through sports or music), and can serve as a vehicle for social commentary and satire. It may even lead to insight and intellectual growth.
