Time of Smartphones – level 1

11-06-2018 15:00

A lot of people have smartphones. Some people spend too much time on their phones. This may be a bad thing. Some people use their phones for up to five hours a day.

When you are on your phone all of the time, you do not have time for other things. You chat with people instead of talking to them, for example.

Google makes the Android operating system. Apple makes the iOS for iPhones. Google and Apple introduce new operating systems. The new software tells you how much time you spend on your phone. You can also see what you do. This can help you spend less time.

You can also set limits. When you reach a limit, the phone tells you to do something else.

Difficult words: may (can), introduce (show people for the first time), reach (get to).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
