IELTS Speaking Part 1 Topic: Handwriting with Band 9 Model Answers

Q1: Do you usually write by hand?
Not really anymore. These days I find myself typing a lot on computers and texting on my phone, so I rarely use paper and a pen anymore. That said, I still have to jot down notes in class because laptops are not allowed. I think it’s a pain, really.

jot down (phrasal verb) write

Q2: Do you think handwriting will be replaced by computers?
Well, you know, in this day and age, modern technologies have largely marginalized handwriting, and you don’t see people writing by hand as much as they did in the past. However, I still think some things need to be handwritten. For example, you should always handwrite a wedding invitation to show respect to the guests.

marginalize (verb) to make someone or something seem not important or relevant

Q3: Is it still necessary to keep handwriting?
Definitely. I think it’s important to teach young kids to handwrite. I think handwriting exercises really do wonders for their cognitive
development. For example, my brother who has really beautiful handwriting is a brilliant kid.

do wonders (phrase) to have a very good effect on someone or something

Q4: What impression does a person ’s handwriting have on other people?
I think handwriting can speak volumes about somebody’s personality. For example, if you have neat handwriting, people tend to think that you are a good-hearted person. On the other hand, if you writing is unintelligible, they may think badly of you. It’s quite an antiquated way of thinking, I guess.

speak volumes (phrase) to provide a lot of information, especially in an indirect way

good-hearted (adj) kind, generous, and helpful

antiquated (adj) too old or too old-fashioned to be useful
