IELTS Speaking Part 2: IELTS Cue Card/ Candidate Task Card.
Describe a thing you possess which is important to you.
You should say:
- what it is
- what it can do
- how you use it
and explain why it is important to you.
Model Answer 1:
Today I am going to tell you about an item I possess which is important to me. I will tell you what it is, what it can do, how I use it and why it is important to me.
The item that is important to me is my laptop! I am not very knowledgeable about technology, so I can’t tell you anything about its specifications. However, I can tell you that it is very light and easy to carry around. It has both a keyboard and a touch-screen and since starting my travels it has become my best friend!
My laptop has all the Microsoft office packages like Word and PowerPoint, it also has a big memory and can give me access to Skype and the Internet. I use my laptop every day for work. It helps me professionally in my job as an English teacher because I can use it to devise lesson plans, carry out research on new topics, and keep up to date with news and issues of relevance to my area of work. I also use my laptop every day for personal things. I can contact my friends by email; chat to others using Skype – if there is a strong enough wi-fi connection – and I can save all my photos of this beautiful country that I am working in at the moment Vietnam, safely on my computer.
I am from England, before I came to Vietnam my employer said it would be really helpful if I could bring a laptop with me. I was worried - ‘what if it gets broken’ or ‘what if it gets stolen’ I thought. Now I am here I am so happy I brought it with me. It helps me professionally to do my job well, and it helps me personally as I can communicate with friends, family and colleagues all over the world.
Did you know that when I was in my twenties computers and the internet did not even exist? I would never have imagined that thirty years later this gadget ‘a laptop’ has become so important to me. I wonder what gadgets will be invented in the next thirty years!
