IELTS Speaking Test Part 3 Questions

What are the advantages and disadvantages of emails, compared to handwritten letters?

Okay, let’s talk about the advantages first; they’re quicker to write, send and they arrive instantly in the inbox of the recipient. You don’t have to buy paper, you don’t have to buy an envelope, you don’t have to buy a stamp, and you don’t have to go to the mail box or post office to send it. Emails are fast, free and environmentally friendly (because there’s no transport involved).

As for disadvantages – I can’t think of any. However, obviously to send an email to someone, the other person must have a computer to be able to receive it. That’s about the only limitation.

Handwritten letters waste paper, time and money, it’s so old fashioned and outdated, even though some people might consider a letter to be more personal; that’s just my personal opinion, letters are so wasteful.
