IELTS Speaking Part 1 Text Messaging
Q1. Do you like texting?
Yes, texting appeals to me. I believe it is a prudent method to converse because sometimes expressing our feelings face to face is a daunting task for us. In such a scenario, sending text messages is a worthwhile way to communicate our message to others.
Q2. Do you prefer sending or receiving messages?
In my opinion, both sending and receiving messages have their significance. Therefore I prefer both depending upon the situation. Whenever I don’t have sufficient time at my disposal to converse with someone, or I do not have the wish to talk, then sending messages is the prudent approach for me. On the contrary, my official communication usually happens through receiving messages.
Q3. Have you ever received a confusing text message?
Yes, on numerous occasions, I have received confusing messages from my near and dear ones because they have this uncanny knack for using short forms, which puts me in a state of confusion most of the time.
Q4. In what circumstances are making a phone call better than sending a text message?
In some cases, the message I wish to communicate is a long one. In such a scenario making a call is a prudent approach for me.
Apart from this, in the case of an emergency or unforeseen contingency, I prefer to make calls because sometimes the receiver ignores the text message.
Q5. Have you ever had difficulty replying?
Yes, on a few occasions, I encounter issues while answering someone. When someone requests me to borrow something significant, it is a daunting task for me to say no because I do not have the habit of hurting the feelings of others. Moreover, I refrain from replying when someone asks me personal questions.
