IELTS Speaking Part 1: App

1. What kinds of apps do you often use?

Communication apps like Facebook, Viber and Zalo are what I cannot do without. I use them on an hourly basis to stay in touch with the world. To me, using these apps is no longer a hobby, but more like a habit now.

2. What kinds of apps would you like to have in the future?

I am trying to think of one, but nothing comes to mind at the moment. Perhaps it’s because in this era of information, there is an app for just about anything. Even the simplest tasks like booking a taxi or ordering food can be facilitated by mobile applications.

3. What’s the most popular app in your country?

Facebook is no doubt the most frequently used app in Vietnam. I would say the biggest reason is its user-friendly layout. Besides, Facebook has created such a solid virtual community that people just can’t help but use it.

4. What was the first app you used?

I don’t remember precisely, but one of the first apps I installed on my smart phone was Google maps. I relied on it a lot, and I still do now, since it helps me get around the city by showing the shortest route.

5. Do old people in your country like to use apps?

Based on my observation, I would say no. Most old people in my country are technology illiterate, which means they can’t even use a normal cell phone, not to mention complicated mobile apps.
