Sample Answer 

With the advent of technology, it is readily apparent that we are heading towards a technologically advanced future. Nowadays, internet has a lot of websites which one can scroll and surf through. But today, I would like to talk about a site which I quite often visit for my research papers and assignments. The name of the website is Merriam webster.

I came to know about it when I was in second year of my college and my English professor gave me a dissertation of thirty thousand words on a topic. I was very much stressed, as I have never done any such research before. So, I seek help from my seniors who were then in the final year of the college. One of my seniors named Shreya then introduced me to the website where I was actually able to find a lot about the different words, their meanings , followed by synonyms and antonyms.

The website was quite helpful in my research, as it helped me with the names and pronounciation of certain words around which my research revolved. It was because of that, I was actually able to complete my thesis before time, and not only that, I also recieved high grade in my research, for which I was presented with  a fellowship of 5000 Rupees. Ever since then, I have been using that website for my study related purposes, like assignments and projects.

Therefore, this was  a website which helped me to do something important.

Speaking -Part 3 (Follow up questions)
Here are some examples of follow up questions that examiner may ask during your speaking (part 3) related to cue card ‘Describe a website which helped you to do something/ website you visit often/ use regularly’.

Q1. Will the internet replace teacher one day?

I do not think so, because teachers are imperative to a child’s good academics. Physical interaction between a teacher and a student is must. In fact sometimes when students have any doubts, teacher tries to come up with creative ways of solving them, which is not the case with the computers.

Q2. Can internet help the children with studies?

Definitely, Infact I strongly feel that most of the studies today are possible because of internet itself. Even during pandemic, when everything came to a halt, the major part of  the syllabus was covered through zoom classes and google meet, followed by online exams as well.
