IELTS Speaking Part 3 Questions # Cell Phones
In a recent post, we talked about the cue card where one was not allowed to use cell phones. This time we are looking at the part 3 questions related to the cue card on cell phones.
What is the impact of cellphones?
Like most technologies, cellphones surely have made a place in our day to day lives. With the coming of smart phones, people now use it for almost everything. Gone are the days when people bought cameras. The only people who buy cameras nowadays are either the camera lovers or professional photographers. So, the general public has now become a photographer. People carry phones everywhere because they need the next most important thing, internet. Internet allows people to communicate and do so much more. I think cell phones have in a way changed the way people live their lives.
What do you think about people who speak loudly on cellphone in public places?
Be it public place or anywhere, speaking loudly on phone, I believe is quite unethical. When one speaks loudly on phone, firstly it disturbs the other person on phone. The disadvantage with phones has been that one cannot see the expression of other when talking, so speaking loudly could be taken any ways. Apart from the person on the other end, it also creates nuisance for the people around.
Do young people use cellphones the same way old people do?
I think definitely not. But for that matter, in my opinion it is not just about old and young, it is also about two different individuals. I have seen older people loving whatsapp and facebook and using it extensively. And even some young, who prefer not using them. But, if we take it in a more general way, young people often click photos and listen to music or probably play games on the phone. However, older people are more fond of chatting with their peers.
What is your opinion on selfies with cell phone?
Selfies are a great way of expressing oneself. But, overdone, just like other things does great avoidance. Selfies in a positive way, do help a person knowing their individuality. So, it tells that one need not to be part of something to be happy. In my opinion its good, only if not done extensively.
Are cell phones important to you?
Well being the part of the 21st century, yes cell phones are important for me. I need it to do my work and communicate with people. But, certainly not the smart phones have much importance in my life. I think any phone that allows me to communicate well with others, is important.
