1.Yes, I almost write emails for my clients as part of my job on a daily basis.

2.There are many things I have to write, for example, I usually write end user training for my clients to teach them how to use the system, or I write the development guide for my technical staffs to tell them how to code.

3.If I were to choose between the two, I’ll probably go with writing things with a computer. I believe that in the age of fast pace and a culture of efficiency, writing with computers can bring people convenience and efficiency. Whereas, hand writing stuff is really hard to share.

4.Well, between the two, a letter is printed or handwritten on actual paper and sent through the mail while an email is typed on a computer, tablet or smartphone and sent electronically. While emails have become a more popular way of communication for individuals and businesses, traditional letters still have a place in today’s modern, tech-oriented society.

5.Normally it seems like a daily routine for me to write emails to my clients about how to use the system; but if they complain to me about the poor user experience, I sometimes really find myself getting stuck in how to explain everything to cool them down.

6.I would be feeling excited to receive a letter or email from other because the sender has spent time writing it. Especially when someone writes to me to appreciate me or compliment me about my responsible work.

7.Well, if I were to choose between the two, I will probably go with writing an email because I can have plenty of time thinking about how to express my opinion correctly and clearly, besides, the whole conversation can be tracked in the mail list; whereas, you know, making a telephone call usually leads to misunderstanding because sometimes it is not very accurate and obscure.

8.I believe that as a major method of communication between people, letter writing has a vast and interesting history; besides, handwritten letters are personal. They show the receiver that someone has spent time and effort in communicating with them. They are a way of connecting two people that cannot be achieved through the impersonal use of texts or instant messages. Therefore, I feel that the handwriting letters are irreplaceable in the future.

9.Very few on that note. Generally everyone prefers letters but there are some who are crazy about them. My mother is one such person. She is so fond of letters that no matter how many other things I give to her, every letter that I write makes her happier than anything in the world.


1.There is so much value in hand written letters, people cherish them, they wait for them with anticipation, they open them in a ceremonial way, they keep them for years, they read them and re-read them multiple times.

I hope you too will decide to write a letter soon, the person at the receiving end will remember you forever.

学习表达:cherish, wait with anticipation, in a ceremonial way

2.the decline of the physical letter as a communication, with replacement by instant and ephemeral electronic media, will have a long term societal effect. We just don't yet know exactly what that will be.

学习表达:instant and ephemeral, with replacement by...

3.Hand written letters are always special no matter how good or bad is the handwriting of the person or the subject of the letter. Hand written letters also conveys that the person really means what he wrote. People tend to lie while texting but when it comes to handwritten letters our conscience encourages us to be candid and express exactly what we feel.

学习表达:也是几番敌人写信的发自肺腑的讴歌.convey, means, tend, when it comes to

4.A lot of things about the letter make me yearn to receive or send one. Like the smell of a fresh letter. The way in which it was written. Every word from the heart. And one of the best things from the letters were the stamps. As a stamp collector, the yearning grows even more. I still remember how I used to search for a new stamp on the letters and patiently remove it from them, so that it can be added to my collection.

学习表达:yearn, the yearning grows

5.Putting aside the legal or obligatory stuff, I think that a hand-written letter is much more intimate and personal. It shows that you actually spent time writing it and even if you have a poor hand-writing, that would still be unique.

I'd been writing letters to my girlfriend who at that time was living abroad. And getting a letter from her about once in a month, with her hand writing and all that cannot even be comparable to getting a lousy e-mail.

That may have sounded just a little bit cheesy but with all the electronic and fabricated stuff surrounding us, we need more and more "personal touch" and hand-written letters are a good example of that.

学习表达:形容词intimate and personal, comparable, lousy,cheesy, 经典话语:with all the electronic and fabricated stuff surrounding us, we need more and more "personal touch" and hand-written letters are a good example of that.

你和雅思的故事 - Go Hard or Go Home

发表于 2019-10-18


Well, as far as I can remember, I’ve never written any letters, and I hardly ever send emails except when I hand in/submit my assignment/homework to my professor in college.

Do you prefer to write letters by hand or to use a computer? / Which do you more often write, emails or letters?

Um… well, if I had to choose, then maybe I would send an email, ‘cause it’s much more convenient than writing a letter by hand. But actually, it’s not likely to happen, ‘cause if I really need to send messages to others, I would just contact them on one of those chatting applications in my phone.

How often do you write an email or a letter?

I guess, once or twice every semester. Most of my professors prefer handwritten homework, so I don’t send them emails that often.

What are the differences between emails and letters?

In my opinion, letters are more personal and emotional, we have an old Chinese saying, when you open a letter and see the handwriting, it’s like you actually see the person who wrote it. That’s why few people would send a love letter by email. And as for emails, they are more convenient to send, I mean, you don’t need to go to the post office or buy any stamps, as long as you have Internet access, the people you write to will receive your email immediately, which is time-saving.

Is it hard to think of what to write?

Well, it’s not that hard for me. Like I said, I just send emails to my professors to hand in my homework, so every time I just write ‘Dear Professor blah, blah, the attachment is my homework you assigned, thanks for your time and have a nice day’, things like that.

What kind(s) of letter/email do you think is (are) the hardest to write?

Um… I guess letters of apology must be hard to write, not that I’ve written one. Oh, and love letters must be hard to write as well, ‘cause when you write a letter like that, you need to write about all the reasons you adore the person. Plus, things would be awkward if the person doesn’t love you back / feel the same way / the feeling is not mutual.

How do you feel when you receive a letter or email?

Um, I’ve only received one letter so far in my life, which is the one I got from my cousin before my college entrance exam. I was so happy when I opened the letter, ‘cause she encouraged me and calmed me down before the exam.

Do you think people will still write letters in the future?

Yeah, some people might think that letters seem to be a thing of the past, but personally I believe that writing letters represents an emotional connection. It’s more sincere, and it’s the fact that few people are still doing it that makes it all the more precious.

雅思口语part1“Letters 信件”范文

Do you write many letters?


No, I haven’t written letters since I stepped into middle school. You know, our teachers in primary school sometimes required us to write some letters for our parents. But now, we have computers and phones, so writing letters became so uncommon for me.


Do you prefer to write letters by hand or to use a computer?


I would definitely prefer to write because it’s much more time-saving. Plus, sometimes my handwriting isn’t so good, so typing would become more legible for the readers.


What do you usually write about?


Well, so many things I write, like poems from the Tang Dynasty because I really love that period. Plus, some English passages that I think are worth reading again and sometimes writing those words helped me polish my own English reading comprehension.

還是写了许多物品的, 例如来源于唐朝的古诗词,由于我很喜欢哪个時期.另一个,因为我会抄录某些我认为最该回味无穷的英文文章,有时写的全过程中也锻练了我的英文阅读题.

Who do you usually write to?


I usually write to my professors. Why? Because they give us tons of essays to write as assignments every term. So, normally, if I’m writing something, then it must be some words that I am about to present to my professors.

我常常写給我的专家教授. 为什么呢?我也每一学年专家教授都是交给人们成堆的论文.因此,通常假如在写啥得话,那么我毫无疑问是在写这些给教师看的文本.

Is it hard to think of what to write?


Sometimes it is difficult to think of what to write. For instance, some papers that require us to state some insightful opinions. This article is from laokaoya website. It will probably take me two weeks to figure out the outlines of that kind of paper.


How do you feel when you receive a letter?


Well, I would feel surprised and pleased because nowadays it’s quite uncommon for someone to write letters. If so, he or she must be very considerate. I would definitely be moved.


Do you think people will still write letters in the future?


Yes, I think people will do. Maybe letters about personal communication will be less but they would continue to write some letter in the business circle to make customers feel their good service, and letters is a good way to do that.
