Hello dear friends. I am going to present you with a sample speaking task today.

Let’s check our Speaking Task topic.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of working from home?

That is, the good sides and bad sides of working from home. First of all, we need to do brainstorming first.

We call it ‘brainstorming in English’.

We may talk about the cost of renting offices. We can talk about the time and money lost commuting. We may talk about how homeworkers may improve their time management skills. Getting up or going to bed any time they wish to is another point. While talking about disadvantages we may include the good thing about a break from family. A change might be good. We may include how working with others may contribute to our creative work. We may give some examples to support that it is difficult for some jobs that need teamwork. We may talk about workers with young families. We may consider its bad effects on homeworkers. Another point is the lack of space in your houses for homeworking. Considering all these points we may present the ideas in English. Here is how:

First, you need to welcome the audience.

Hello, everybody welcome to my presentation about the advantages and disadvantages of working from home.

There are many advantages and disadvantages of homeworking. Let me talk about the advantages first. There are three important advantages I can think of.

First, the cost of office space. When you work from home you do not have to spend any money for office rent. Your boss doesn’t have to, either. Second, people have to spend a lot of time and money commuting. For instance, I spend at least 1.5 hours commuting to work by bus. The last advantage is more personal. As a worker from home, you choose when to sleep or wake up. You have the chance to plan your work day. This will improve your time management skills, too. On the other hand, there are many disadvantages of working from home. Offices may be costly but they provide some break from your family. Seeing different people may support creativity, too. For example, when you are stuck, you may brainstorm with other colleagues. Also, some jobs require teamwork. Footballers for example cannot work from home. It would be funny.

Second, having your children around while working will definitely be a disadvantage. For example, when I try to focus on an important e-mail my sons distract me either by asking questions or forcing me to spend time with them. Children are sometimes demanding.

Last, but not the least, working space may be another problem at home. You need a big house with a special study room if you can afford it.
