Part 1: Technology
1. What technology do you often use, computers or cellphones?
Sample answer: Well it is hard to pick just one since I employ both of them on a daily basis. My cell phone, which I use to send voice messages, binge watch videos, and utilize a variety of applications to aid me with life's challenges, is certainly a daily necessity for me. However, word processing, video editing and stuff like that is not really convenient with the phone, so the computer is quite handy while I'm creating an excel spreadsheet at work.
On a daily basis = daily
binge watch = Cày phim
Utilize = Employ = Use: Sử dụng
A variety of = A lot of
Daily necessity = Một nhu cầu cần thiết hàng ngày
Handy = Useful
2. What electronic devices have you bought lately?
Sample answer: A month ago, I purchased an iPad. I used to bring my laptop to class to take notes, but to be honest it was cumbersome. It's incredibly uncomfortable to carry anything so hefty when I want to do sports after class. Because it is far lighter and more portable, the iPad is a fantastic option.
Cumbersome: Cồng kềnh, vướng víu
Hefty: Nặng nề
Portable: Xách tay
3. Is there any technology you want to buy?
Sample answer: Well I've set my eye on a Fujifilm digital camera for a while and that’s definitely my go-to now. I love taking pictures, and it gives me so much pleasure to record the special moments and minute things that make up my life. I'm considering purchasing a new camera given the fact that the one I'm currently using has a few drawbacks, including occasionally fuzzy photographs and freezing unexpectedly.
Set one’s eye on something: Để mắt tới cái gì đó
Go-to: Favorite thing
Minute (adj): Tiny, small
Given the fact that: Mặc dù
Fuzzy (adj): Mờ
4. Is technology important in your life? What are the benefits of technology? / Do you think technology is important in your life?
Sample answer: Our lives have undergone enormous transformation since the advancement of technology, and we have benefited a great deal from that. For example, unlike past generations who mostly communicated through letters or fax, we may call or use social media applications to connect our family and friends whenever and wherever we want. On top of that, the proliferation of numerous applications has tremendously increased life's convenience also.
Undergo enormous transformation: Trải qua sự biến đổi lớn
the advancement of something: The arrival of something
A great deal = very much
On top of that = Above all
Proliferation = sự sinh sôi nảy nở, sự tăng nhanh, sự phát triển
Tremendously = Enormously
5. Is there any technology you don’t like?
Sample: To be very honest with you, I detest the Amazon Kindle. We can read books and do so much more on a mobile device, therefore I don't see why the corporation creates an entirely different gadget, just for reading. It seems like a superfluous gadget and a waste of money to me somehow.
Detest = Hate
Superfluous = Thừa thãi
Gadget = Device
6. What do you think are the trends in technology today compared to when you were young?
Sample: I do believe that multifunctional gadgets are now possible thanks to modern technology and that is a noticeable trend. Computers, for instance, are now quicker, more portable, and more powerful than ever. Technology has aided in all of these revolutions by making our lives simpler, faster, better, and more enjoyable.
Multifunctional (adj): Đa chức năng
Part 2: Describe a piece of technology that you feel difficult to use
You should say:
what it is
what you got it for
how often you use it
how you feel about it
Sample: I consider myself a technophile, therefore I find it difficult to go a day without utilizing technology, especially my smartphone.
My parents gave it to me as a gift when I graduated from high school four years ago, and it has come in handy ever since. At the time, it was the newest Android phone with a ton of amazing features, but nobody ever gave me good instructions on how to use it. In order to investigate my phone and diagnose its issues when the screen suddenly turned dark or an application wouldn't launch, I had to resort to Google search. I always have my phone with me, and while knowing that using it for more than six hours a day is bad for my eyesight, I can't help but do it. I can't dispute that this multipurpose tool has a significant impact on my life, both favorably and unfavorably. Now that I can look up words, take notes, snap photographs, listen to music, and watch movies on the screen of my phone, I no longer need dictionaries, notebooks, a camera, a music player, or a TV.
My pocket-sized phone allows me to generate and modify documents while on the go instead of a cumbersome, hefty laptop. Additionally, internet shopping and notifications of sales save me a ton of time and money compared to going to the store. The disadvantage is that I rely on it a bit too much. I can feel exposed and alone if my phone's battery suddenly dies or if I leave it behind at home when I'm out and about. This phone has been really helpful to me in my career and studies, but I'm considering cutting back on my use of it for my well being.
Technophile: Những người thích những công nghệ mới
Come in handy: Hữu hiệu
Resort to: Phải dùng tới (bất đắc dĩ)
Feel exposed: cảm thấy bị vạch trần
A ton of = a lot of
Be out and about: đi đây đó, hoạt náo
Q1. How can technology make our life easier?
Answer: Technology may improve our lives in a variety of ways, and thus far, it has made our lives simpler than before. First of all, the internet has made a significant contribution to this. Our everyday lives are dominated by this creation, which also makes them simpler by offering a vast quantity of knowledge on many topics. It has enabled communication, distant schooling, and internet banking. Further, contemporary times have seen improvements in both purchasing and communication. Technology has sped up and simplified communication. For instance, you may call someone no matter how far away you are by just pressing a button. With a few mouse clicks, you can purchase anything you want, and it will be delivered right to your door, which is why online shopping is on the rise. Technology has also made it feasible to treat illnesses that were previously incurable. It has enhanced the way we travel, prepare meals, socialize, form relationships, enjoy our free time, and many other activities.
Contemporary: đương thời
Q2. Do you believe technology is making life complex from some perspectives as well? Why/Why not?
Answer: Oh, absolutely, there is no denying that technology complicates our life in many ways and has both benefits and drawbacks. For instance, we now rely too heavily on technology, which causes us to be less physically active and acquire weight, which leads to a variety of health complications. Digital communication exposes our social awkwardness and damages our interpersonal relationships. Furthermore, if something goes wrong, relying too heavily on technology such as computerized traffic systems, internet banking, and the like can be fatal. Last but not least, we are jeopardizing our privacy in order to engage in online social networking, and it may come back to haunt us if hackers and bad users steal our personal data.
jeopardize: put in danger
Q3. What are some greatest inventions you know about?
Answer: I can think of a lot of amazing technologies that have revolutionized our lives and the world we live in. Karl Benz and Thomas Edison each created a significant innovation in 1885 and 1870, the automobile and the light bulb, respectively. The first technology makes it possible for individuals to commute whenever they choose and from any location, while the second has made working in low light conditions and at night practical.
Q4. Why are mobile phones gaining popularity?
Answer: Mobile phones are unquestionably extremely helpful for communication, and this is a reality. For instance, you can call in an emergency to avoid a bad situation or to speak with a helpful individual. Additionally, these gadgets improve communication and aid in maintaining relationships that may otherwise end. On top of that, they can also surf the internet, snap images to save memories, and use a variety of applications. Therefore, all of these functions are merged and housed in a single device since it would be highly costly and take up a lot of room to have separate appliances for every single purpose. These are the key factors driving mobile phones' explosive growth in popularity.
Q5. Why should we restrict the use of mobile phones in public places?
Answer: Mobile phone usage should be limited in public spaces for the main reason that they occasionally cause annoyance and intrusion. For instance, they are very unsettling when utilized in hospitals or libraries. Mobile phones must always be on the quiet in public libraries since it prevents people from concentrating. Additionally, permitting cell phone usage and talking in a hospital might disturb patients and even be fatal in rare cases.
