Describe a piece of modern technology you own (like Kindle, smartphone etc.)

You should say:

  • what it is
  • what you use it for
  • how long you have been owning it

and explain why it is important to you.

[You will have to talk about the topic for one to two minutes. You have one minute to think about what you are going to say. You can make some notes to help you if you wish.]


Model Answer 1:

Technology has taken a huge leap forward in the last couple of decades so much so that we are actually struggling to keep up. Today, I would like to talk about one such amazing modern technology which is called a Tablet PC or just Tablet.

When I saw this particular “technological wonder” for the first time, which neither was a shrunken laptop nor an oversized smartphone, about 3 years ago, I immediately knew that I got to have one, and eventually I got one, which I have now for almost 2 years. Anyway, I use my favourite and unique hand-held device to do pretty much everything from sending and receiving emails, finding important information, preparing and editing documents, watching movies and videos, listening to my favourite music and enjoying just browsing through during my leisure time. I also use it to capture images of different kinds of things and doing video-conferencing with my families, friends, relatives and co-workers. In fact, it looks like I can never have enough of my wonderful gadget whatever I am doing or wherever I am going.

This electronic device is really important to me mainly because it allows me to take care of many of my office tasks at home at my convenience as my job is really demanding. Besides, it saves me a lot of time helping to find important information during emergency time and situations. Then there are times when I also need to send a lot of data and information quickly either to my friends or fellow office workers immediately, and that’s when my tablet PC comes to my rescue. On top of that, I can carry this device very easily with me whenever I need it. Finally, this device is important to me because it allows me to work on the go and thus helping me save a lot of time.


Model Answer 2:

Canon 6D Mark II is a piece of modern technology in the arena of photography. This is one of the latest cameras in the market from the reputed camera manufacturer – Canon. It is an impressive piece of technology to capture both the pictures and videos. The 26.2-megapixel camera was released in July this year. I am very satisfied to own this piece of contemporary technology and it is quite handy for me. I would like to thank you for this great topic.
To tell you the truth, I am an amateur photographer and in fact, I am learning photography for the past two years. So, I needed a quality camera for my practical class and to take photos to enhance my skills in photography. Earlier, I used my mobile phone to capture some photos but there were some resolutions issues. Hence, I decided to get a branded camera recommended by my teacher. Accordingly, I got this wonderful piece.
To be precise, I have been using the camera from January of this year. In fact, I had to wait a few days for the camera to reach my country, Nepal. I ordered the camera from an online store and it took nearly a week for them to deliver the package to my doorstep. It has become a constant companion for me since the day I got it.
This camera is important to me for its extraordinary image taking capability. The full-frame sensor of the camera is outstanding and the DIGIC 7 image processor works beyond expectation. I am glad about the crystal clear images and high resolution that makes the captured picture quite vivid. Besides, the swivel and tilt touchscreen of the camera has brought a revolution in the photography industry. I am in love with the 6D II for its full-frame. The viewfinder enhancement has changed my experience indeed. Due to all the reasons, the camera is of great.
