Группа Learning English.

Doug: Hello, I’m Doug Campbell and this is 6 Minute English. Today we’re talking
about mobile phones. And I’m here with Jackie Dalton – have you got your
mobile Jackie?
Jackie: Yes, I have Doug – but I’ve turned it off… for six minutes.
Doug: Okay. Well we don’t want your phone ringing during the programme.
Mobile phones are so popular nowadays. And I have a question for you before
we start…okay?
Jackie: Okay.
Doug: In Britain we call it a mobile phone. In Canada and the United States they
call it a different name. Which of these names is not a name for a mobile phone
in Canada?
a) a cell phone
b) a cellular phone
c) a c phone
Jackie: That’s quite tricky. I thought it was going be easier than that!
Definitely a cell phone is a name. Cellular phone sounds a bit odd, but I think
you could say it. C phone I’ve never heard before so I’ll go with c phone.
Doug: Okay, well we will check your answer later in the programme. Now here’s
another question - I asked people in the office about mobile phones and I asked:
Could you live without your mobile phone?
Nooooo! I couldn’t live without my mobile phone. It organises everything I do in work and in
my private life.
I could live without my mobile phone because I think it encourages me to make unnecessary
phone calls.
Doug: For some people a mobile phone is very important.
Jackie: Yes, that woman said, “I couldn’t live without my mobile phone.”
Doug: Yes, for her it’s not just a phone. It organises everything she does in work and
in her private life.
Jackie: Her private life and that’s everything that she does outside of work. Her home
Doug: Right, so she can’t live without her mobile but the man - he didn’t think it
was important.
Jackie: Yes, he thought that he would make more phone calls…because he was
carrying a mobile. But maybe he didn’t really need to make a phone call.
Doug: By the way you’ll notice that we say to make a phone call. Why do we say that?
Why do we make a phone call? I don’t know – do you Jackie?
Jackie: No, I don’t know. It’s strange, isn’t it?
Doug: Yes, it’s weird.
Jackie: Because to make is usually to do with to create or something like that, but we
just say to make a phone call.
Doug: There’s something else about mobile phones. I’m thinking about text messages.
Jackie: Yeah and I actually use text messages much more than phoning people.
Doug: But this word text – t.e.x.t. - a noun. I will send you a text. But nowadays, it’s
a verb. I will text you. Text me.

Okay, let’s hear some answers to that question – Could you live without your
mobile phone?
Yes, yes, I could easily live without my mobile phone. Useful to have around- I don’t miss it
when it’s turned off.
I couldn’t live without my mobile phone and in fact if I accidentally leave it at home I feel
really lost without it and I would go back and get it.
Doug: Okay Jackie, first that man - he doesn’t care about his mobile.
Jackie: Yes, it’s useful he says but he doesn’t think about it when it’s turned off – he
doesn’t miss it.
Doug: But when you leave it at home – that’s different. The woman said that she
would go back if she left hers behind. And I have to say, I probably would as
well. What about you Jackie?
Jackie: I think if I was leaving home to go to work, I would. But if I was going for a
walk or something, I absolutely love leaving it behind because it means I won’t
be bothered at all.
Doug: Actually, I’ve left mine at home today and I don’t like that one bit.
Doug: And that woman said she would feel lost without her mobile phone.
Most people like to be contactable – they want to know that people can phone
