Part 1

Do you usually use a pen or a pencil?

(Answer 1)
As an artist, I often use pencils more than pens because they’re ideal for sketching. Most of the time I use graphite pencils whenever I sketch or draw, however, I sometimes use grease pencils for drawing especially when I need to draw in broad strokes without getting finicky. 
(Answer 2)
Oh wow, that’s a surprising question! Actually, I don’t use any of them lately as I don’t have any opportunity to use one. I’m a digital nomad so most of the time I use my laptop or tablet computer to write or sign some documents – as you know, digital signature is common nowadays and for me it’s more convenient than using a pencil or a pen.
(Answer 3)
I usually use the latter most of the time. As a student, I need to jot our lessons down on my notebook. And there’s no way I can do that quickly if I use the former. That’s the most convenient way to take down notes.

Which one do you prefer using a pen or a pencil?

(These answers are independent from the previous answers to the first question So these are not related to what the speaker said in the first question.)
(Answer 1)
Well, I need to sign some pertinent documents at work every now and again, so I usually use a pen. We aren’t allowed to use a pencil for signing because it can be altered or changed. 
(Answer 2)
I’m always for convenience so I use pens more often. As we know, using a pencil for writing is a bit of a hassle since you need to sharpen the tip of it when it becomes blunt over and over again and doing so is a waste of time.

Pertinent document [noun] – a very important document such as finance document, contract, tax, and the like
Alter [verb] – to change something

Blunt [adj.] – not sharp
When was the last time you bought a pen or a pencil?

Well, I’ve just bought this morning because I had to take the three sections of the IELTS exam  and I needed to use a pencil . Seriously, I bought 4 pieces of pencils since I was really anxious that I may break one or two during the exam. I wanted to feel secure so having extra pencils was the best assurance I could give for myself and that helped me stop thinking of problems that I might encounter while taking the exam.

LEXICAL RESOURCE
Anxious [adj.] – worried; fearful
Secure [adj.] – free from worry
Assurance [noun] – self-confidence
Encounter [verb] – experience
What do you think if someone gives you a pen or a pencil as a gift?
(Answer 1)
Without a doubt, I’d be astounded most especially if I get a Parker fountain pen. You know that kind of pen costs an arm and a leg, so I don’t think I can contain my happiness if I get one. But anyway, I don’t mind if the pen is not expensive, the fact that the person gives me a present is what I care the most.  
(Answer 2)
For me that’s a strange present to give, I’ve never tried giving a pen or a pencil as a present to my loved ones or friends. However, if I could receive one, I would be glad and grateful. Well, I always believe that it’s the thought that counts!

Cue card

Describe a time you were not allowed to use mobile phone. You should say:

–   what you did

–   when it was

–   where it was

–   why you were not allowed to use a mobile phone

One of the most controversial issues in my high school when I was a senior was the “No-cellphone-allowed” rule under any circumstances. It has been five years when the rule first came into force and until now, the majority of students have still been demonstrating against it and personally, I believe the board of the school should reconsider their decision.

During my time, cellphone was not as popular as they are today mainly because of their exorbitant prices; therefore, only those with money were able to afford them. I, on the other hand, still managed to get one since my house was extremely far from my school and my parents wanted me to be able to contact them in case of emergency. However, considering its negative impacts on students’ performance in school, our principal decided to have it banned on our campus. She was convinced that such device continuously distracted students during class, making them lose their focus and accordingly, discouraging their learning spirit. Unfortunately, reality wasn’t far from her assumption. Take my class for instance, a few classmates of mine who owned a mobile phone could hardly pay full attention as they were constantly checking their phones for messages and the like. As a result, our teachers found it worrisome and disturbing when students using phones in their class and we ended up not being able to bring cellphones to school at all. If anyone needed to call their parents, they were allowed to use the telephone in a supervisor’s room anytime.
