雅思口语Part1范文答案解析：Text message 短信
Do you like texting? 你喜欢发短信吗？
Yes, I do. I enjoy texting. I think it’s the easiest way to communicate with others on a phone. You know, I don’t have to worry about losing contact with family and friends if my phone had zero data.
Do you prefer sending or receiving messages? 你更喜欢发短信还是收短信？
I like sending messages more than getting them. If I have something detailed and important to tell someone, it’s always a good alternative to making a phone call. This article is from Laokaoya website. Being able to receive their responses is also very comfortable as I can read them when I am free. But, I feel that it’s pretty annoying to get some text messages that contain ads or harassment.
Have you ever received a confusing text message? 你曾经收到过令人困惑的短信吗？
Yes, I have. Just yesterday, I got a text message telling me that I have a package delivered. However, I didn’t see any detailed address or date to fetch it on tat piece of text message, which made me feel quite confused.
In what circumstances is making a phone call better than sending a text message? 在哪种情况下，打电话比发短信更好？
In my opinion, it’s always a better choice to make a phone call if things are quite urgent and the one you are going to speak to is available as it’s the fastest way to notice someone. For instance, if a car accident happened, it would wast a lot of time to send a text message to your friend for help as the process of typing and receiving the response is really long. However, by making a phone call, you could get it done within half a minute.
