     TASK 2: / Use the information you gathered in the grid to report what each character thinks

    of mobile phones (oral or / and written report).

    1- Paula from Newcastle “I couldn’t live without my mobile phone. I think I’m addicted to it in fact! make over twenty

    phone calls a day and send at least forty text messages. I just like to be in touch with all my friends.

    I can’t really remember what my life was like before I had my mobile. I wouldn’t give it up for all

    the money in the world.”

    ?---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     2- Maria from Cardiff

    I have a mobile but I try not to use it too much. When I do have to use it for a long time I worry

    about what’s happening to my brain. Sometimes my ear gets really hot and I get a headache. I’m sure it’s not good for you to use a mobile for long periods of time. We all use them but there hasn’t

    been much research into the possible dangers.” ?---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     3- Mahesh from London

    “I think they’re really useful. It’s great to be able to call a mate and tell him you’ll be a bit late to

    meet him. The other day my car broke down on the motorway and it was great to be able to phone

    for help. I got lost on the way to a friend’s house the other day and she told me the directions as I

    was walking along. That was really handy.” ?----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     4- Simon from Plymouth

    “ I have never had a mobile phone. I work from home, I’m a writer, so I really don’t need one. I

    have to phone friends on their mobiles though and my phone bill has gone up lots since everyone

    started using mobiles. My girlfriend keeps trying to convince me to get one, but I won’t. People

    think I’m a bit strange not having one but I don’t want people to be able to know where I am and

    what I’m doing every minute of the day. I like to be un-contactable!”

    ?-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     5- Anna from London

    “I have a phone but I’m really careful about switching it off when I’m in public places. I hate

    having to listen to other people’s conversations on the train and on the bus. I try not to listen but it’s

    impossible when people speak loudly. Often they have really personal conversations and I just don’t

    want to know their private business. It can be embarrassing. I think they should be banned in

    restaurants, art galleries and on public vtransport. The whole mobile phone culture is out of

    control and we shouldn’t accept it. It’s noise pollution.” ?-------------------------------------------------

    --------------------------------------------------------------

     6- Josh from Dublin

    “I’m a teacher in a secondary schools and mobile phones really annoy me. The students send text

    messages to each other in the class and last month I caught two of my students cheating in an exam

    by sending messages to each other. In theory they are not allowed to bring them to school but it’s

    nearly impossible to stop them. I don’t think parents should buy them for their children. It’s crazy to

    see eleven year olds with their own mobiles. It must cost a fortune for their parents too.”

    ?---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     7- Ben from Glasgow

    “I’m a bit of a phone fanatic. I always want to have the latest model. I now have one of those

    phones that takes photos. It’s great when you’re out partying; you can take photos of pretty girls in

    the bars and send them to your mates! We have such a laugh taking photos of people when they

    don’t know. Once I saw my sister’s boyfriend out with another girl so I took a photo of him and

    this other girl and sent it to my sister! That was the end of that relationship! I never liked him much

    anyway!”
