雅思口语Part2话题卡：Describe a piece of technology you own that you feel is difficult to use 描述你觉得难用的科技产品
这道题目的重点词有两个，一个是technology，另一个是difficult。首先，technology的定义是：machinery or equipment designed using technology。所以，采用科技知识所设计出来的产品都算tecnology。最常见的就是咱们使用的智能手机，如iPhone、小米、三星、华为等等。除此之外，电脑、无人机、照相机、电视机、游戏机、扫地机器人还有疫情下检测核酸的设备都算是科技产品。最后，需要提醒同学们，不管你说那种科技产品，最后都不要忘记点题，强调它是难用的。
Describe a piece of technology that you feel difficult to use
You should say:
When you got it
What you got it for
How often you use it
And explain how you feel about it
A technological item that I think is hard to use is actually a blood glucose meter.
I got it from my parents when I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, which is a milder form of diabetes than type 1, while I was in the first year of college. To help me better monitor my blood sugar without much pain, my parents bought an item called Tangwuji, which claims that users do not need to prick their fingers by using it.
You know, finger-prick blood samples are a headache to me as I’m quite sensitive to pains, not to mention doing so on a regular basis, which is really a nightmare for me. This article is from Laokaoya website. I normally use it on Wednesday and Saturday as those days allow me to have much more free time in school and at home. All I need to do is put the detector on my ears and the data will show on the mobile phone-like device.
It is pretty easy to get the hang of it. However, the system on this device seems to be quite buggy. The menu sometimes doesn’t work, and you have to reboot the machine. Because of this, I lost my data several times. Plus, the detector seems to be not as accurate as it’s supposed to be, no matter how many times I try.
I feel like it’s the most hard-to-use medical device that I got in my life. The product has innovative designs, but it could have been made better. Honestly, I’d rather use the traditional meter than this fangled but defective one.
Why do big companies introduce new products frequently?
Why are people so keen on buying iPhones even though they haven’t changed much from one to the next?
What changes has the development of technology brought about in our lives?
Does the development of technology affect the way we study? How?
