Speaking Model Answers
1. How often do you use email?
I would be lying if I said that my life can always go on well without email. Indeed, I have seven email accounts in total, and I never fail to check them four to six times a day. As a language teacher, a tutor, and a teaching assistant, I use email mostly to exchange information with my students and archive folders, documents, and files that contain all my teaching and course materials.
2. What do most people in your country use email for?
In Vietnam, email is used for a variety of both work-related and personal purposes. Businesses and companies, for example, make immediate responses to their customers’ inquiries and requests via email. Individual users take it as a tool to send and receive different forms of attachments including photos, short videos, and files or documents besides composing messages. A large number of netizens these days choose to keep themselves updated on the latest news from across the globe on their email accounts and even use them to make online purchases.
3. What are the advantages of email?
Since it came into existence, email has brought countless conveniences to the entire world. Information sharing has been much easier, faster, and more convenient than ever before. A single mouseclick would get an electronic letter or message with seemingly limitless words and a series of attachments to reach the person it is intended for in barely seconds, no matter where he appears to be on Earth. Surprisingly, it takes neither a cent nor an ounce of energy to perform such a simple task. Email obviously keeps its users in touch with one another everywhere anytime. It further provides them with instant access to both domestic and international news as well as to online shopping.
4. Are there any disadvantages?
Despite how much people have been benefiting from email so far, its drawbacks can easily be seen. Without a computer, a smartphone, a tablet, or any other electronic device and an accessible Internet connection, email is of no use at all. It might also turn out to be a widespread source of computer viruses and disturbing spams.
5. Do you think that email will replace letter-writing?
From my point of view, traditional letters can never be replaced by email. They feature a formal method of communication that explicitly speaks the writer’s heart and mind to the recipient as his true emotions, feelings, thoughts, and actual intention are all expressed in every word he decides to put down. As a result, the total amount of time someone devotes to a handwritten letter partially indicates how much sincerity is contained in it.
