This would be related to the broader topic of technology.

Although talking tech may seem easy, as technology is such a part of our daily lives, these more specific questions about the use and spread of equipment are usually difficult for IELTS candidates.

Thus, we’re here to help!

Study these sample answers, and take notes on:

Question 1: What kinds of devices are used to do housework where you live?

Hm. That’s not something I’ve really given much thought to, to be honest. Well, let’s see, every household has a microwave, of course, if you consider cooking to be housework! As far as actually keeping the house presentable, we all use vacuums. I did see a commercial for a cool device called a rumba, this little automatic robot-like machine that wonders around the house of it’s own accord, sucking up debris as it travels. I don’t know anyone who actually has one, but I’m putting it on my Christmas list this year. So, I guess just vacuums are the most ubiquitous housework tool in the States.

Question 2: Do you think the use of equipment for household chores is beneficial?

Well, on the one hand, I can see the obvious advantages of saving time, aiding in the preparation of home-cooked meals, and just making things at home more cleanly and comfortable in general. However, I am of two minds about this, actually, as I also see how slothful technology has made society. I don’t have a dishwasher, for example, so I have to take care of all the dishes by hand. This is actually exercise, and it is also a sort of meditation for me, focusing on such a manual task and then feeling satisfied at the tangible results of my hard work. So, I guess I’d say there’re more negatives than positives here.

Questions for your own continued practice:
