and explain how your work or studies would change if this website didn't exist.

[You will have to talk about the topic for one to two minutes. You have one minute to think about what you are going to say. You can make some notes to help you if you wish.]


Model Answer 1: 
We should absolutely thank Tim Berners-Lee, a British scientist at CERN, for inventing the World Wide Web (WWW) in 1989. But, we should also be equally thankful to the websites like “youtube.com” which have made the efforts of people like Tim Berners-Lee even more revolutionizing and remarkable. But, here, I would like to talk about youtube.com, saving Mr Tim Berners for another time.

Talking about youtube.com, it is one of the most popular video search engines in today’s world which attract more than 2 billion users every month. In fact, youtube.com became the second-most popular website in 2018 with more than 500 hours of video contents which are being uploaded to it every minute. Since starting its journey as a “video-sharing platform” in the year of 2005, it has allowed us to view a countless number of videos, containing information on pretty much all kinds of subjects, issues and interests, which a human could possibly think and imagine in today’s world. As for me, I have been using this website for last 8 years in order to learn an array of things, from a particular food recipe to practising a foreign language to learning “karate”, by watching some amazing videos on it. In fact, it wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say that a person can practically learn about anything and become an expert just by watching videos on youtube.com. This great website also offers “live streaming” facilities to its users.

I have benefitted a lot from this amazing website by learning a number of skills from its videos. In fact, if this particular website didn’t exist, I wouldn’t be able to improve on my computer coding skills and become a better computer programming professional. Besides, without this particular website and some of its educational videos, my communication skills still would have remained below standard. However, one of the best advantages of using this video sharing platform is that I can actually keep in touch with many other like-minded professionals from the same profession and ask for their feedback on many career-related issues.





Sample Answer 2: 
I am a mobile technician based in Hong Kong. Frequently, I need to repair mobile phones for my clients. At times, I need to check the IMEI of their devices. Without knowing the right IMEI, this is not possible to make the perfect decisions to fix the devices. So, I frequently need to visit www.imei.info. 

I need to use the website almost every day for seven to eight times at least. But there are no certain counts. When my clients come with locked-in phones, I need to visit the site to know the details of the device. But if the clients are fewer in number, the site-visit by me reduces accordingly. There are days when I have to keep the site open on my computer for a long time due to the rush of the clients.

This is a website that provides mobile phone related information. Using the site, anyone can know about the IMEI details of any mobile phone. Besides, some additional information is provided by this website which is handy at times.  The site users can know if the phone set is stolen, blacklisted or comes with a country lock. You can fix software problems using the site and within a short period. But you are to pay to get the service.

Well, if there were no such websites, it would have been tougher for me as a professional. Many of the clients come with allegations that their phones are locked. In that case, I need to use my account to unlock the phones. I charge them a smart amount. Imagine, there is no such website, there are no such clients. My business would have fallen sharply.

Model Answer 1: 'Family' is the most precious thing for everyone. One cannot live without a family, and even if we notice deeply, we could see that familial bonding is also found among animals.
