IELTS Speaking topic: 机器人 Robots
Do you like robots?
I am not sure how to answer that, I do not have much contact with robots to know whether I like them or not. I like the idea of some of them, but I cannot say I like all robots.
Are you interested in robots? Why?
Yes, i have to say that i am fanatical about robots. I used to watch a very touching movie named Cyborg girl, which tells about the love story of a robot and her owner. we often think that robots can not think and love, but the movie has shown the opposite, by which i was deeply impressed.
Why are robots part of many TV shows and movies?
That’s a very interesting question ! Scientists and science researchers improve techniques by testing advanced technologies with robots to better understand our world as well as the universe in the film-making field. The audience feel like they have superpowers while the television or film is speaking to them .
What kinds of robots would like to have?
I think it would be great to have a robot that could do the ironing, as I really hate doing that. Maybe one that can clean the house too!
Would you like a robot to help out around the home?
I hope so ! I’m in charge of making sure that everyone and everything is in the right place at home . Almost every day I am in need of urgent help . A robot , my most anticipated assistance , may reduce the frequency of my daily stress . It can become a part of my family .
Will robots change our society significantly?
Technology has already made great changes to our lives, and have made a lot of jobs much easier. Therefore, I am sure there will continue to be changes. However, it is hard to say how significant they will be.
Would you ride in a car driven by a robot?
I would love to have a car with a robot in it, but only if there is an option of manually driving the car as well. Having a robot every time in the car, will just take away the fun of driving the car. The fun that you get, the rush of reaching to a place, the fact that you can control something is amazing. Although, having a robot will help in having those long trips but a permanent driver is something I’ll avoid.
Will robots replace human beings in the workplace completely?
Well, i don’t think so. Even though robots are massively replacing human labour and this helps us avoid potential dangers as well as saving labour, the role of human beings is re-replaceable. We still need to control robots as well as find solutions for arising problems or process data as robots are still unable to do these tasks.
