IELTS Speaking sample
Well, I think that mobile phones have now become a must-have item for everybody in daily life, so much so that we somehow feel we can’t live without them.
I still remember the one time that I had to be apart from my phone when I was sitting my high school graduation exam 2 years ago, and I have to say it was quite uncomfortable.
So, my high school graduation exam is a mandatory examination that students have to take at the end of grade 12 to get their diploma and it’s one of the most important events in a students’ life, I guess, because it pretty much shapes their future.
And of course, cell phones are not allowed in the test, to ensure that no one gets an unfair advantage by cheating. If your phone makes a noise, or if you are seen using it at any time, including during breaks, you may be dismissed from the examination immediately, and your scores will be cancelled without exception.
I myself had a bad habit of always going on the internet on my phone to make sure I got the right answers when doing the practice tests at home, so during the exam, I constantly had a burning desire to reach for my phone but obviously it was just a thought and I didn’t dare to do it. However the feelings of uncertainty about my results were haunting me and made me really nervous, and it wasn’t until I handed in my papers and checked the answers when I got home, was I able to feel calm again.
From this experience, I realized that I do rely too much on my phone. And although it’s a great tool to assist studying, I think we should learn how to be more confident in ourselves.

Câu hỏi: Do you think it is necessary to have laws on the use of mobile phones?
(Gợi ý: personal rights (quyền cá nhân) – as long as we don’t use them for illegal purposes (miễn là chúng ta không dùng chúng cho mục đích phi pháp)
Certainly not. I think mobile phones are personal belongings, which means what they do with their phone is part of their personal rights. However, bear in mind that if cell phones are used for illegal purposes like recording movies in theatre or spying on another person and so on, the owners should definitely be fined heavily. But, you know, even if having laws on mobile phone usage is essential, I don’t think it is highly possible to carry it out on a large scale.
Câu hỏi: How do you like children having mobile phones? At what age should children have mobile phones?
( Gợi ý : contact their parents (liên hệ với bố mẹ), keep in touch with their friends (giữ liên lạc với bạn bè))
Mobile phones could be necessary for children because they can use their cell phones to contact their parents after school, keep in touch with their friends for group work and also stay up-to-date in this tech age. But, parents have to be mindful that children can be addicted to their cell phone easily. Also, I think that children should be at least 15 years old to have a cell phone of their own.
