Hi Students! Here are the Speaking Part 3 questions that we covered in the past.


Talk about a tool you use to fix something broken.

What is this tool?

How do you use it?

What did you repair with it?

How does this tool and the item you fixed help you?

You will have one to two minutes to talk about this topic. You will have one minute to prepare what you are going to say.

A really useful tool that I have to fix broken items around the home is a tube of UHU all-purpose super glue.  To be more specific, this is a small yellow tube of very strong adhesive, about 3 cm in length, containing about 3ml of glue. It has a long needle nose for precision application and a screw on cap to keep it from drying out. Super glue is used to stick broken pieces back together or potentially to build a bigger structure from smaller pieces when doing arts and crafts. I can buy UHU superglue from many different retailers, such as hardware stores, gas stations, stationery stores and supermarkets. I think it is readily available because it is so useful and people often require it to fix broken items. It usually sells for about a buck 50 a tube.

The recommended way to use super glue is to wear gloves for protection, squeeze a small amount of transparent fluid or gel onto one side of the broken surface, it can be wood, glass, or even metal, and then, hold the two pieces firmly together for about 30 seconds until the glue sets. Of course avoid getting it on hands or in the eyes or mouth. Most recently, superglue came in really handy to fix my broken sunglasses. I had accidentally sat on my sunglasses while getting into my car and broke the frame. Fortunately, I was able to fix it quickly with superglue, and then I could use them to keep the sun and UV rays out of my eyes and I drove safely and in comfort.  Having this superglue saved me about 100 dollars, not having to replace my sunnys, and of course time as well, not having to go to the store.
