IELTS Speaking Part 3: ‘technology’ topic

  1. What technology or equipment is used in most workplaces nowadays?
  2. Does technology help workers or make their lives more difficult?
  3. What effect does new technology have on employment?


1. Tip: give a list of different technologies, then talk about one in detail:

In most workplaces people use equipment such as computers, phones, printers, fax machines and photocopiers. I think the computer is probably the most essential piece of equipment because we rely on it for almost everything: communicating by email, writing reports, organising data, and finding information on the Internet.

2. Tip: talk about the positives AND the negatives:

Technology definitely helps workers because it makes many tasks so much easier. For example, email is such a useful tool for communication between employees in different offices, or even in different countries. On the other hand, technology can make life more difficult, especially when it goes wrong. It causes a lot of stress when the Internet is down or a computer crashes.

3. Tip: give the good effects AND the bad effects:

I think technology is often responsible for people losing their jobs. Machines have replaced people in areas like manufacturing and agriculture, and whenever a new technology is introduced, there are redundancies. At the same time, jobs might be created thanks to a new technology; for example, there would be no computer programmers if the computer hadn’t been invented.

IELTS Speaking Part 1 – Topic: Technology

Do you use any gadgets on a daily basis?

Yes, absolutely. Honestly, I am not a geek but I’m extremely passionate about technological devices such as smartphones and tablets. In a nutshell, we’re living in the computer era and there is no reason to overlook cutting-edge technology.

How often do you use the internet?

The internet is an indispensable part of my daily grind. It’s really beneficial for my studies and helps me to relax. Surfing the Internet is my hobby during my downtime. Frequently, I browse websites to buy something on e-commerce platforms or to search for information. I often video conference with my classmates for class projects.

How much time do you spend using a computer at work or at home?

I work on the computer for about 4 to 6 hours every day, either to do projects or my home homework. It is useful for other extra-hour activities, too, including watching YouTube, editing my new videos and podcasts, and chatting with my friends, all of which can take up to two hours every day.

Have you ever bought anything online?

I recently purchased a lot of items online, mostly from e-commerce platforms. Sometimes I think I’m addicted to shopping, but I can’t seem to stay away from the tempting promotion deals. My last purchase was a cleaning kit for my cute dogs.

Do you believe that people today rely too much on technology?

Honestly, I have to admit that technology gives us numerous benefits. But in fact, people nowadays do rely on technological devices a lot. In some cases, it can damage our relationships and mental health. For example, students are wired to use smartphones all day and neglect their studies, which can lead to bad academic performance.

Bài mẫu tham khảo IELTS speaking topic technology

I have a few technology gadgets at home, some of which were bought for me and others that I bought on my own by saving money. My desktop computer was given to me by my parents when I was a high school student in order to study more efficiently. The most important piece of technology I bought, however, is my laptop. I bought it with my first month’s salary I received after graduation.

My laptop is from Apple, and it is called a Macbook. I’ve been dreaming about it for years, and I was delighted when I first unboxed the brand new device. I chose the gray color option because it looked really futuristic and clean. Its screen is extremely vibrant and sharp.

It is definitely an integral part of my life because I use it for work and entertainment, as well as keeping in contact with my classmates and co-workers. At first, computers were confusing to me, so I had to do research on the internet myself to set up the systems.

I could say that I cannot live without my laptop because it enables me to work anytime and anywhere as long as there is a wifi connection.
