IELTS Speaking Model: Mobile Phones - Part 1

Updated on July 29, 2013



IELTS Speaking Model: Mobile Phones - Part 1

IELTS(International English Language Testing System) is the world's leading test of English for higher education, immigration and employment. Below are some sample questions and model answers for the topic ‘Mobile Phones'

Do you have a mobile phone? Sure who doesn't? Actually I have two, I use one for work and the other for contacting friends and family. I prefer to keep my two lives separated.

Is your cell phone important for you in your daily life? Absolutely! If I forget my mobile phone at home I would feel uncomfortable for the whole day. These days cell phones are not just a device for calling a texting but they have many other useful functions such as playing music and also making schedules.

How often do you use it? I would say I use it frequently, hundreds of times a day - even before this test I used it to comment on my blog and after this test the first thing I will do is call my friends to tell them about the test.

When did you get your first mobile phone? If I remember clearly it was on my 14th birthday. My aunt bought me one for my birthday present and I have had a mobile phone ever since.

How did you feel when you got your first mobile phone? I was over the moon. So happy that I over used it the first few days I had it. My parents had to scold me cuz I kept calling people for no reason and it was a waste of money.

Have mobile phones developed (or changed) in the past few years? Well, there have been some obvious changes. I guess the most obvious change is that most popular phones are now smart phones with a touch screen whereas a couple of years ago most phones had buttons. Also another major difference is that these days phone have a lot of storage space - we can store photos and even videos on the phone while on the other hand many years ago phone only had the storage space for about 200 text messages.

Is there anything you dislike about using cell phones? Well I guess. I'm not really fond of the fact that they could be quite pricey. An iPhone costs about 5 thousand rmb so the cost may be a little steep for high schoolers like me.
