IELTS Today Speaking Exam Review

1. Do you like texting?

Yes, I really like texting. I have been texting since I was in grade 9. I find it more convenient and fun than making phone calls.

2. Do you prefer sending or receiving messages?

I prefer both sending as well as receiving messages. I am very fond of typing texts and I feel happy when people reply back.

3. Have you ever received a confusing text message?

Yes, yesterday I received a text message from an anonymous and probably some fraud person mentioning that I had won a lottery worth rupees 25 lakhs from KBC quiz show. I was pretty confused as I do not even watch the show and neither did I take part in any of its contests ever.

4. In what circumstances is making a phone call better than sending text messages?

It’s better to make a phone call in an emergency situation when we have to instantly convey some important message. By making a call, we can make sure that the person has got the message right away because sometimes people may be busy, or maybe unavailable and may not read text messages instantly. Sometimes the receiver may not be educated enough to read and understand the text message. Also, nonverbal cues that are lost in texting so it’s better to call people in many circumstances where clarity is needed.
