Do you like vegetables?
"Yes, I do. I think vegetables are an important part of any healthy diet because the can supply fiber and a variety of vitamins and minerals. Without sufficient vegetables in their diets, people may encounter health problems later in their lives."
"Yes, I do. I especially like leafy greens, such as lettuce and spinach, although I do eat pretty much any kind of vegetables. In fact, on the whole, I eat at least three or four types of vegetables in every meal."

•how easy / difficult: easy to use
•how helpful: very useful, lightweight
OK, I would like to talk about my first time using a smartphone (what device) which was about 10 years ago.
Well, I guess I am not really a techie or any type of technology fan. That is why having the first smartphone was really an eye-opening experience for me. I got it from my mother (who) as a birthday gift (why) for my 18th birthday, and I absolutely loved it.
At that time, I had just been accepted to college, and I needed an electronic gadget that is as convenient as a computer and as portable as an iPod. An iPhone was a good start. You know… it was like having a whole world in my pocket. I could surf the Internet (what), send an email, make free international calls, and even read e-books.
The smartphone was so user-friendly (how) that it took me only an hour to figure out all the functions and made the most out of it.
The smartphone was useful (how) because I didn't have to carry my heavy laptop around to access emails and messages. The smartphone was especially handy when I was on a trip. Also, as the smartphone took good pictures, it made my camera redundant. I used the smartphone for three years before its battery died. It was an important part of my life.

Do you think that schools should use more technology to help children learn?
•直接回答問題(direct answer): yes
1. interesting: virtual field trips, online learning resources
2. active participation: online games to practice math
Yes, of course (direct answer). There are many benefits of using technology in the classroom. When technology is integrated into lessons, students are generally more interested in the subjects they are studying (reason). Technology provides different opportunities to make learning more enjoyable in terms of teaching the same things in new ways, such as taking students on virtual field trips and using online learning resources (examples). What is more, technology can encourage more active participation in the learning process, which can be hard to achieve through a traditional lecture environment. For example, my cousin's class used online games to get students to solve math problems and develop their analytical skills (example). My cousin said the games were fun and everyone was actively engaged.
