In this cutting-edge era, I used my Smartphone many times for calling, chatting with friends, buying online something, and so on. But here I would like to talk about a time when I used my phone for my education. As you know education is very important for everyone. 2 years ago when I was studying in 12th standard. Suddenly, there was a complete lockdown in India neither shops were opened nor any educational institutes. It was very hard to continue my study. So at that time, my Smartphone plays a vital role in my education.
I started my preparation online. My school principal involved this feature in every class. Our education began through the zoom meeting app. Which was very easy for me to understand. My teacher known as Mani Dhaliwal used to teach us on this platform in different ways he also gave many social examples for better understanding.
I also worked hard which is why I was able to give my best in the examination hall. When I checked my result I was freaked out because I got 93% marks. The whole credit goes to my Smartphone if it is not had then I couldn’t achieve these outstanding marks. So that was a time when I used my phone for something important.
Part 3:- Follow-up Questions of Describe a time you used your cellphone/ smartphone to do something important
1 What do you usually do with a cellphone?
I use my cellphone for many purposes besides calling and chatting with my friends. I use it for playing games like chess and Ludo, listening to music, watching videos, and for navigation. Above all, use it for photography.
2 What are the differences between young people and old people when using a cell phone?
Old people mainly use mobile phones for calling and to some extent for chatting. However, young people treat mobile phones like mini-computer. For most youngsters, their whole life nowadays revolves around the mobile phone. They use it for entertainment, for studies, for clicking photos, shopping, banking and so much more. The list is really endless.
3 Which one is more important, using a cellphone to make phone calls or to read messages?
I think it really depends upon the person. Some people like chatting, for them it’s about sending and receiving messages, while for others it is about calling.
4 Do you think there should be a law to stop people from making phone calls in public?
I think there might be emergency situations, where it might be necessary to make calls. So don’t support a ban on calling in public places but I do think that we should encourage people to avoid calling as it can be really disturbing. consider audio calls as a sort of noise pollution and it has a serious impact on our focus and concentration.
