A Modal answer with band 7+

OK! I'd like to start off by saying a practical skill I've learned recently. It is a mobile phone repairing. It is more about electronics and technology and involves an understanding of the Printed Circuit Board.

I have a vivid memory of doing the course of repairing electronic items. When I was in the second year of my graduation, I was told that people should have extra skills so that later in life they will find livelihood jobs.

I had enrolled for the course diploma course in electronics. I learned to repair Television, Radio, Mobile. Initially, the mentor teaches us a theory about how any equipment works and gradually it took us how to troubleshoot and fix the exact issue. I was quite challenging learning this skill.

Overall, it helped me a lot as physics was my major in graduation, the practical session was a piece of cake for me. In my view, everyone should have such skill because it is often that failure of their electronic device, so with this skill they could easily fix themselves.
