Read the presentation of three young people and decide which must be their favourite items of technology.

Hi, I'm Sarah. I'm 16 and I live in a little village near the sea. I go to high school but it takes me a long time as my school is in the nearest town and the trains are not very reliable. So I spend almost two hours travelling every day. On the train, I like listening to music. It relaxes me. I would like to read also, but my schoolbag is already very heavy and I wouldn't like to add another book on top of all my school books.

My name is Daniel. At present, I am living abroad as I am spending my fourth year of high school in a foreign country. I have made many friends here but I always like to be in touch with my old mates at home. Every evening I Skype them. With my girlfriend it is different, we also send each other millions of messages a day with WhatsApp, so it doesn't cost us a single euro.

Hi, I am Roxy. I am not very keen on technology and I don't have a smartphone. I have a traditional phone which I have had for years. It is enough for me. I make phone calls with it, that's all. I like taking photos but I don't take pictures with my phone. A tablet? No, thank you.

Sarah: ________
Daniel: ________
Roxy: ________
