Listen to 3 or 4 times to the conversations in this clip. Then you should take note the ideas or expressions in the conversation.

For instance,

In the table, ideas are only listed as phrases like:

Pros of using cell phones

Cons of using cell phones

 

A cell phone could save your life.

 

People waste money on cell phones they don’t need.

 

So what you need to do is to change it in full sentence with adding reason, such as:

A cell phone sometimes could save your life, especially in urgent cases. Imagine that one day your friend has got lost and no one around his place. At that time, you need a cell phone to contact police officers for help or otherwise, it will be dangerous for your friend.

Step 3: Writing

After speaking, to memorize the ideas and expressions, it will be better to paraphrase the essay in your own language. What I mean is that you can follow the essay with the provided ideas, expressing in agreement or disagreement or try to add your own opinion and expand the topic.

To the first way, you can use some signposting words like that’s true, I know what you mean, but… with pros or I don’t think so because… with cons.

For example,

Kate: I think it’s so annoying when people talk loudly on their cell phones. I don’t want to listen to other people’s phone conversations when I’m on the train.

Jason: I know what you mean, but cell phones keep you from getting bored.

The second way, you can combine suggested ideas and your own ideas, like:

Kate: I think it’s so annoying when people talk loudly on their cell phones. I don’t want to listen to other people’s phone conversations when I’m on the train.

Jason: I know what you mean, but cell phones keep you from getting bored with addicting online games or entertainment programmes. In addition, using phones on trains or buses are sometimes necessary when something happens unexpectedly and you need to be informed immediately to solve the problems.
