Describe an electronic device such as a mobile phone.
You should say:
its exterior outlook, price, brand
how you get it
how it has developed in recent years
and explain how you feel about it.
Candidate 1: I want to show my mobile phone. The mobile phone was given by my father when I went to the university. He said to me: "You will live in another city. So I want to communicate with you with the mobile phone."
The mobile phone is glossy and handy. The size allows me to carry it in my pocket, my purse or around my neck. That means it can go with me whereever I go. It has many functions including downloading and playing MP3, watching videos, sending messages, recording and Bluetooth. It also has a built-in camera. So I can take a lot of beautiful photos. My father spent 1600 yuan on it. I think it was not really that expensive but it's thought that counts for its famous brand—Sony Ericsson, which is popular with young people.
Now more and more people have mobile phones. Its exterior outlook also tends to be fashionable. On one hand, mobile phones have turned the world into a little village and made people communicate with each other more easily. On the other hand, mobile phones enable people to enjoy more convenience and fun.
Candidate 2: Nowadays, more and more electronic products based on new technology have become important parts of our lives. People can make one's life more happy and convenient by using these things. Five years ago, the MP3 player was not a common thing in the daily time. But now, almost every youth has a more useful player than MP3, which is usually called MP4 player or even MP5 player.
I got an MP4 player last year. Most MP3 players can only be used for "listening" but MP4 player can also be used for "watching". So it has a screen on the front page with five buttons: volume up and down, next one, last one and meun button. There is a speaker on its back so you can hear the voice of the file without the headphones. It can save files for 2G bytes. When I can watch the film whenever I like. The MP4 palyer brings much convenience to people. Portable as it is, people can listen to music on the way anywhere. During a boring journey, people can watch a funny show or a film to kill time. It can even be used to read an electronic novel. It can be taken to everywhere in a pocket and children can hold it easily. The things you should care about are just the dump energy and your unhealthy eyes.
Human beings always need a convenient life. Maybe someday in the future, we can find a better player then MP4. But now, why don't we think MP4 player is wonderful thing? How nice it is!
Candidate 1描述的是自己的一款索尼爱立信的手机，是去大学念书前父亲送给自己的。它外观炫丽，功能较多，且便于携带，作者非常喜欢。考生用词准确丰富，娓娓道来，可见英语功底牢固。美中不足的是没有描述这一型号手机近几年的发展；Candidate 2描述得是MP4，用了一些比较专业的词汇，如volume, file, byte, saver等等。缺点也是没有明确陈述其发展，只是点明它是由MP3发展而来的。
