IELTS Speaking Part 2: IELTS Cue Card/ Candidate Task Card.
Describe something that you have learned recently from the Internet.
You should say:
- what it was
- how you found out about this
- would you recommend this to your friends
and explain whether it is important to you.
The Internet is perhaps the most wonderful and helpful modern invention that has touched the lives of billions. This worldwide network has not only revolutionised the way we communicate, shop or exchange information but has also changed the way people learn new things, teach others, do travel plans, get enrolled in a course and so on. I personally thank you for the opportunity you gave me to talk about something I have recently learned from the Internet.
In fact, I use the Internet almost every day and learn new things quite often. One of the things I have recently learned is how to reuse the ordinary plastic bottles we throw away almost every day. While surfing the Internet, I found that one of my friends has shared a video that shows different utilities of the plastic water bottles and soft-dring bottles. the creator of the video called it a lifehack and uploaded this video on YouTube. From YouTube, this friend of mine shared it on his Facebook account. It was 15-16 minutes video and I was quite amazed by the idea and genius behind this video.
Recommending something that I like with my friends has become quite easier these days. I only need to press a button or click the mouse to share a content with my friends. In fact, just after I watched it, I have shared this video with my Facebook, Google+ and Twitter friends. As I find this video and its content helpful, I would definitely recommend it to my friends.
As I have already told, the idea behind this video was quite remarkable and this has taught me something that I never thought would be possible. The video was professionally made and it was easier to follow the process described in this video. I was quite astonished how a simple plastic bottle could be turned into so many useful things. I watched this video several times and found that it showed 20 handy utilities of plastic bottles including how to make these. I learned how to make a plant pot, soap bottle, basket, napkin holder, kind's pencil holder, leaf lamp, piggie bank, decorative container, jewellery stand, bird feeder, hanging-chandelier and many other handy things out of the ordinary plastic bottles.
Learning how to upcycle plastic bottles to make those handy and beautiful things was very important to me. Up until I learned how to upcycle the plastic bottles, I mostly threw away those bottles and never thought about their practical use. Now I have made two holders for my small plants, a piggie bank, a bird feeder and a pencil holder and I felt an enormous pleasure in making them. I will try making other things that were demonstrated in this video. Such crafty works, I believe, foster our creativity, hones our skills and saves money. The utmost pleasure I can feel when I successfully make something useful from an ordinary plastic bottle is unparallel. This is quite important to me due to its practical usefulness and creative processes. I would definitely watch similar video and tutorials and learn such skills more in the future.
