IELTS Speaking Part 2 : Describe your first mobile phone.
- You should say:
- When you got it
- How you got it
- What you used it for
- And explain how you felt when you got it.
I’m gonna tell you a little bit about my first mobile phone, or at least as much as I can remember anyway, because I think it was about seven or eight years ago when I first got one, so my memory’s a bit sketchy.
Anyway, in terms of how I came to getting my first mobile, well basically, I had kind of been going on at my mum for quite a while to get me one, but she kept saying, quite rightly, that I was too young and didn’t really need one. But when I hit the age of about 15, I think it was, she finally relented, and took me to the shops to choose one.
So uh, yeah, I remember at the time that neither of us knew much about mobiles, so when we walked into the shop, we just asked the sales assistant there to recommend us one. And I think I’m right in saying that we ended up choosing the cheapest and most basic phone they had, simply because I wasn’t really interested in having loads of functions, you know, all I wanted to use it for was to call and text people.
So that’s how got I it, and um…what else is there to say, uh…. Oh yeah, as for how I felt when I got it, well, in actual fact, I didn’t feel overly excited or anything, you know, it was really just a feeling of, um… what’s the word, umm….. I guess you could say it was like, um, a stronger sense of independence that I felt, um, as well as gratitude to my mum, of course, for giving it to me!
And I took pretty good care of it, you know, I even spent, like, 200 rmb on a leather case to go around it, and it lasted a pretty long time. I think I used it for something like 3 or four years before moving on to a better one. And I think I’ve still got it stored in a drawer somewhere at home. So uh, yeah that’s it. Thanks for listening.
