876.  Something a Friend Did  (May 2018)

Describe something a friend of your did and which you would like to do yourself. *

               You should say:

 what your friend did

 why she did it *

 how she felt about it *

 and explain why you would like to do it.

              .

Notes

  • This is a new topic.

  • It is asking you to talk about something you have never done (= not done yet).

  • Basically, the topic is looking for an example of an interesting or exciting (fun) activity.

***********************************************************************

877.  Your First Mobile Phone  (May 2018)

Copy of Topic 553

Describe your first mobile phone (or communication device).

You should say:

        when you got it (or, how old you were when you got it)

        how you got it *

        what you used it for *

and explain how the mobile phone changed your life.

              .

 

Notes

  • This looks like a repeat of Topic 553.

  • "Cell-phone" is more American usage while "mobile phone" is more common in British English. But either is OK.

Part 3

 

***********************************************************************

879.  An Interesting Job  (May 2018)

Copy of Topic 277

Describe an interesting job you would like to do (or, try).

You should say:

what job it is

what people do in that job

where you heard or read about it

and explain why you think it would be interesting work to do. * 

              .

Notes

  • This looks like a repeat of Topic 277.

  • This does not have to be your real future work plan, and it would be best not to talk about that, although it would not be wrong to choose that. An example of an answer is, "I think working as an archaeologist would be an interesting job". Unfortunately, there are not many jobs available for archaeologists but that is not the point of this this topic.
