Cast Away: If you were stranded on an island......
If you were stranded on an uninhabited lush island, which tool would you find most useful? A sharp knife, a fire stick, or 10 meters of rope.
Hi guys, this is a TOEFL speaking question that I asked some of my students and their response is really interesting.
My male student said, “Teacher, I will choose the fire stick, if you have a fire stick, you can cook food and you can also use it to set up fire to keep you warm.”
My female student answered the knife. “ Well teacher,I will choose the knife because if I have a knife, I can cut the fish, I don’t like my nails destroyed.”
They both asked me what I will choose. I answered, well I will choose the fire stick because I am crazier when I am hungry and I do need to cook the fish. In emergency situations such as this, when you are given just these three options (knife, fire stick, rope), what would you bring and why?
