What perception of robots did you have as a child?

IELTS Part 1 Questions - Robots

Sample Answer:

I suppose the image of a robot would be like the ones you see in movies, usually some form of metallic mechanism.

Although the robots popular in movies were always given personalities, to make them appear more like a human.

In reality, robots in factories or production lines, for example, have very few characteristics which are similar to humans, and tend not to interact with humans.

My overall perception was that they were really awesome, and I can remember looking forward to the future when robots would do everything we don’t like doing.

And we would be able to do just the things we like doing.

Unfortunately, we still haven’t reached that point yet.
