IELTS Speaking Sample Part 1 - Pens And Pencils

Updated: Apr 17

1. Do you usually use a pen or pencil?

To be honest, as a university student, I don't use either a pen or pencil all that often in class these days. With all the reading and lectures being online, most note-taking happens on my laptop.

2. Which do you prefer, a pen or a pencil?

As I mentioned earlier, since my notes are mostly digital  these days, I'd say I have no strong preference for either. However, if I had to choose, I suppose a pen would be slightly more convenient for quick in-book annotations  or jotting down  ideas.

3. When was the last time you brought a pen or a pencil?

Well, if my memory serves me right , I last used a pen in a recent group project with my university friends. It was during a brainstorming session where we were sketching  ideas on a whiteboard.

4. What do you think if someone gives you a pen or a pencil as a gift?

I think it depends on the type of pen or pencil! A nice, high-quality pen would be a thoughtful gift, especially if it's comfortable to write with. Pencils wouldn't be as practical for my current studies, though, but a unique or mechanical pencil  could still be a pretty cool present.
