IELTS Speaking Part 2
Describe a website that you like to visit
You should say:
• What the website is
• What it is used for
• When you used it
And explain why you think it was interesting.
Today, I am going to tell you about one website which I’m really interested in. It’s name is m.ebay.com.
It is an e-commerce website used for online shopping purposes. This website advertises various items classified by categories such as fashion, electronics, and motors. It allows people to order products, and make transactions online.
I always give priority to shopping online whenever I have spare time instead of going to stores or supermarkets. So, this website is very handy for me as I can take advantage of my mobile phone or computer with an Internet connection to access it and purchase what I need. I find this website very appealing due to its good layout and attractive images of products. There is a box for me to enter what items I’m looking for so I can avoid browsing items unnecessarily, as I’m able to find quickly the things I need. After that the items I have bought will be delivered right to my door so I can save a lot of time.
Not only that, there is always the chance to get a good deal and discounts as there are various promotion programs.
This website has important advantages for me, such as convenience and the benefits of saving time and money. Now it plays a useful role in my daily life. In the future I will continue to visit the site and of course recommend it to my friends.
