Bài thi mẫu IELTS Speaking Part 1:

  • Topic - Names:

Q. Did your parents choose your name(s)?

Q. How did your parents choose your name(s)?

Q. Does your name have any special meaning?

Q. Is your name common or unusual in your country?

Q. If you could change your name, would you? [Why/Why not?]


Q.  Did your parents choose your name(s)?

A:  Yes, my parents selected my name. When I was born, my parents wanted me to have a great name, at least to them. I have heard from my mother than my father brought a baby-name-book even before I was born. So the credit of my name solely goes to them.


Q.  How did your parents choose your name(s)?

A:  I learned that they were inspired by a name they found in the book and they took the surname from my grandfather. Thus they combined the name and selected it for me. However, this was the final step they went through to pick my name. As far as I know, they had to choose from hundreds of names, spend considerable hours to finally become satisfied with the name.


Q.  Does your name have any special meaning?

A:  My name is very special to me as it is to my parents. The first part of my name, Clyde, came from the name of a river, more specifically it is a Scottish river. The river was close to the location where I was born and I believe my parents wanted me to be as big as a river! The second part of my name, which is Entriken', is the family name of a famous ancient dynasty from Great Britain.


Q.  Is your name common or unusual in your country?

A:  Statistically speaking, this is not a very common name. However, from my experience, I can tell that I have personally met at least 10 others with the same name but with a different family name. 


Q.  If you could change your name, would you? [Why/Why not?]

A:  My name is very special to me and I would never change it. For anyone, his/her name is quite unique and significantly important. I might take an alias someday if I need to ghost-write some articles, but changing my real name to something for the sake of modernism or style, is something I will never accept.  


  • Topic - Food and cooking:

Q. What sorts of food do you like eating most? [Why?]

Q. Who normally does the cooking in your home?

Q. Do you watch cookery programmes on TV? [Why/Why not?]

Q. In general, do you prefer eating out or eating at home? [Why?]


Q.  What sorts of food do you like eating most? [Why?]

A:  I prefer homemade food and a fan of my mother's recipe. She is an amazing cook and I always enjoy her cooking. Whenever we go to a restaurant, we like to order Chinese menus. Apart from that, I like buttered popcorn, pizza, Indian Masala dosa, Mexican Tacos, doughnuts and sandwich - a mixture of many foreign food items actually.


Q.  Who normally does the cooking in your home?

A:  My mother does the cooking in our house and as I have said, she is a magnificent cook. I often compliment her and inspire her to start a restaurant in the city and she always laughs hearing this. Sometimes, my elder sister Emma assists my mother in the kitchen. I, on the contrary, in charge of the grocery and daily shopping.


Q.  Do you watch cookery programmes on TV? [Why/Why not?]

A:  Not much, I would say. I am not a big fan of TV programmes and mostly watch movies on my laptop. Once in a while, I watch programmes related to travel and cooking and 'Hell's Kitchen', 'Iron Chef' and 30 'Minute Meals' are my favourite.


Q.  In general, do you prefer eating out or eating at home? [Why?]

A:  I like to eat at home. Homemade food has better food value and offers a wide range of choices. It is more hygienic and less expensive. However, we like to eat at a restaurant whenever we have special occasions to celebrate. As dining out in a restaurant offers my mom plenty of time to socialise rather than getting stuck in the kitchen, my father and I often insist her to go to an eatery on occasions like wedding anniversaries and birthdays.


  • Topic - Photographs:

Q. What type of photos do you like taking? [Why/Why not?]

Q. What do you do with the photos you take?

Q. When you visit other places, do you take photos or buy postcards? [Why/Why not?]

Q. Do you like people taking photos of you? [Why/Why not?]


Q.  What type of photos do you like taking? [Why/Why not?]

A:  I often experiment with my camera and mobile phone camera and that's why I like to take a wide range of photos that include nature, people, gift items, sky, river, flower and so on.

However, I am inclined to take photos of people. Some of the best photos that I took were taken in unknown places where people posed for my camera. Their genuine smile, sad expression and sometimes bewilderment make the photograph worth cherishing.


Q.  What do you do with the photos you take?

A: After I take around 20-30 photographs in my camera or my mobile phone, I connect it to my laptop and sort out the best clicks. Then I name those phones according to the theme and prepare those to upload to my Flickr account. Flickr is a great photo storing and sharing website owned by Yahoo! and it offers enormous storage space. Sometimes, I share a few pictures with my friends on Facebook and Instagram. I usually print a photo if I want to gift it to someone or frame it.


Q.  When you visit other places, do you take photos or buy postcards? [Why/Why not?]

A:  I used to buy postcards whenever I visited a new place with my parents in my childhood. Perhaps I did so to bring souvenirs of the places I had been to. But with the increasing use of the smartphone and cameras, we can now take our own picture and video and frame it to our digital storage. In this age of technological advancement, we are more inclined to take picture and video and then share those with friends and family rather than purchasing souvenirs, especially postcards.


Q.  Do you like people taking photos of you? [Why/Why not?]

A:  If someone asks me firsts and I feel like being captured in a photo, I do not mind. Otherwise, I do not prefer to be in a photograph, especially with less known or unknown people. I think this is a personal choice and I am not the type of person who likes taking selfie or self-photograph now and then.

Bài thi mẫu IELTS Speaking Part 2:

Describe a time when you received some positive feedback.

You should say:

when it was

what the feedback was related to

who gave you the feedback

and explain how you felt about it.

I have been lucky to receive many positive feedbacks on many occasions, although I must admit, I don’t think all of them were well-deserved. In fact, I feel like many of those positive feedbacks were thrown at me just to be nice to me. But, I can remember at least one feedback, which I received about 7 years ago as a university student, as a genuine one.

To tell the story, when I was a university student, I used to do some home tutoring for high school students, teaching mostly the subjects of general science which included physics, chemistry, biology and mathematics. By the way, I liked to do this home tutoring thing because it allowed me to remain in the mood of studying since I was also studying science as a university student. Besides, it also helped me a little with my pocket money.

Anyway, while all of my students, taking home lessons from me, were reasonably smart and talented, at least one of them was a bit weak in understanding the science subjects, especially, the mathematics. So I decided to inform his parents about his weakness while also asking the student to spend extra time with me every week to get proper math lessons. Needless to say, his parents agreed, and I started my mission to help him understand math as best I could.

If I remember correctly, I gave him home tutoring for only about 3 months, but his improvement and performance was stunning which showed on his next final examination. In fact, in his next math test, he got 80% mark while his average score was only around 45 in the previous years. After seeing such a huge improvement in the result of their son, the parents of that student gave me very nice feedback.

Anyway, after receiving that huge note of appreciation, I felt really good and proud of my achievement. In fact, I took it as a challenge. Besides, in this way, I also achieved a higher level of confidence in my own studies and professional goal. All in all, it was a great experience.


Describe an occasion when you had to wait a long time for someone or something to arrive.

You should say:

who or what you were waiting for

how long you had to wait

why you had to wait a long time

and explain how you felt about waiting for such a long time.

People say that patience is a great virtue, so I try to be patient as often as I can, even when I have no reason or incentive to wait. But, for better or worse, waiting for something or someone is a reality of life, and we have to wait, no matter how much we dislike it, just as I didn’t like it when one of my fellow co-workers kept me waiting for a long period of time for no valid reasons.

It was about a few months ago when this happened at my work.  Anyway, it was Friday, so I was naturally a bit excited to leave my office as soon as I could and enjoy the weekend. But, suddenly, one of my fellow workers jumped in front of me just an hour before the closing of our office and asked me to loan my motorbike to him. He told me that he needed to go out for some emergency reasons and that also he would come back just in time before the office had closed. So, I just gave the key of my motorbike to my co-worker in good faith only, of course, to find out that he just couldn’t properly value my good faith.

In fact, instead of showing up after an hour, he actually showed up after several hours. Anyway, I tried to keep my calm when he came back and asked me what really had caused him to delay for such a long time. In response, he said that he had gone to see a friend at the hospital, and he just got stuck there. He also politely apologized for the delay.

Anyway, after waiting for such a long time, I naturally felt a bit frustrated and even annoyed at the irresponsible act of my co-worker, especially, at a time when I was planning to leave my office as soon as possible. However, after knowing that he went to visit his friend at the hospital, I felt like I lost very valuable several hours of my life in a good cause, and that was to help someone out during a crisis time.


Describe a person you recently met again after a long time.

You should say:

who the person was

where you met him/her

why/how you met him/her again

and explain if you would like to get to know this person better.

Life is like a big journey where we meet all kinds of people at different times and under different circumstances. Sometimes, we remember some of them while we forget about many others. I guess that forgetting about people, who we don’t see often, is just a human nature just like I forgot about the young banker, whom I met a long time ago.

But, very recently, I met this young banker again at a local shopping centre when I went there to buy some regular household stuff. Interestingly, it was not me who recognized him first, but rather it was the young banker (not so young anymore though) who called me with my name from behind. I looked back, but initially, I had no clue as to who that person could really be. So, I just kept staring at him until he came forward and introduced me as the young banker who I met about 8 years ago at a bank in another city.

Slowly but surely, my memories started to come back to me when he reminded me how I forgot to pick up my bank chequebook and left the city. It was then that I clearly remembered how that young banker fellow at that time called me from his bank and informed me about my lost chequebook. Later on, this kind banker actually took all the pains to mail me my lost chequebook in a courier service.

Anyway, after meeting him again at the shopping centre after such a long time, I felt like he deserved a very special thank from me again for his sincere efforts to send me back my bank chequebook.

Anyway, after meeting the young banker, I learned a very important lesson which was that we should always remember the good deeds of the people if not the people themselves. I didn’t care to remember the banker, but the banker cared to remember me, which proves that he is a genuinely nice, responsible and caring person. And, if we don’t like to get to know a nice, responsible and caring person, then who we will!?

Bài thi mẫu IELTS Speaking Part 3:

  • Topic: Choosing work & Work-Life balance.

Q1. What kinds of jobs do young people not want to do in your country?

Answer: Well, in my country, we have almost always had a big problem of unemployment among young people, and therefore, there aren’t exactly too many jobs that they don’t want to do. However, as far as I have found out, jobs like “outside sales”, “medical representatives” and other “service-oriented” jobs, that require long hours of work, are not looked upon very favourably by the young adults in my country. They don’t also like “elementary teaching” job because they require a lot of patience (after all, teaching little kids can be really challenging).


Q2. Who is best at advising young people about choosing a job: teachers or parents?

Answer: In my humble opinion, teachers are best at advising young people about choosing a job primarily because they are usually the ones who work tirelessly at schools and colleges to unlock the potentials of young adults. Besides, through the continuous interaction with their students in classes, it is the teachers who are better positioned to identify the skills and expertise of the young people and thus being able to guide them to choose careers that are suitable for them.


Q3. Is money always the most important thing when choosing a job?

Answer: No, I don’t really think that money is “always” ("always" is the keyword here) the most important thing, when choosing a job, primarily because money doesn’t always buy “happiness” or the “ job satisfaction” no matter how much of it, we really have. Besides, if I am being paid a lot of “money”, but what I do as a “job” is not considered to be “important”, then the chances are that I won’t be able to perform to my full potential despite my best intention. Money is an important thing for us to do a job but I do not believe that it is the most important aspect of a job.


Q4. Do you agree that many people nowadays are under pressure to work longer hours and take less holiday?

Answer: Yes, many people are indeed under huge pressure nowadays to work longer hours and enjoy fewer holidays mainly because most of them are struggling to keep up with the soaring living expenses. Then, some people are under pressure to work extra hours also because they are simply being “exploited” by their employers. Then, there is another group of people who are under pressure to work longer hours because they want to meet their additional demand for more comfort and luxuries of lives.


Q5. What is the impact on society of people having a poor work-life balance?

Answer: The impact of people, having a poor work-life balance, on society is multi-dimensional. In a society, where people are either working too much or sitting idle for too long, there won’t be enough people to take responsibility in order to carry forward the nation to its full potentials. Working too much would without enough opportunity to relax with families and friends, the people in a society would go through mental depression which, in turn, would result in inefficiency and lesser productivity at works. On the other hands, if people in a society are “sitting idle” for too long, the entire society would be negatively affected by crimes and other anti-social activities.


Q6. Could you recommend some effective strategies for governments and employers to ensure people have a good work-life balance?

Answer: Governments and employers can do several things to ensure a good work-life balance for the employees. First, employers can offer “flexibility” with work schedules, whenever possible, so that the employees can have little time to spend with their families and friends in between the work hours. Employers can also allow some “unpaid time off” (not getting paid for the off days) so that their staffs can attend some fun and family events. As for the governments, they can create awareness among people by using different media outlets in order to highlight the benefits of a good work-life balance. Governments can also arrange for an “annual award” option for the companies/employers who actively work to promote “work-life” balance among their employees.


  • Topic: Sports and competition.

1. Why are some sports fans so passionate?

2. Is there any violence at sporting events in your country?

3. Should athletes be better role models?

4. What benefits do international sporting events bring?

5. Is it important for a country to win lots of medals?

6. The money professional sportsmen earn is significantly higher than that the earning of other professionals. Is it justified?


Q1: Why are some sports fans so passionate?

Answer: I believe some people love sports than other forms of entertainment and competition and they always follow their favourite sports on TV. ‘Watching and playing sports’ is their favourite leisure activity while many of those passionate fans once were players themselves and played the game in their youth. Growing up, they see their family, friends, and city go wild when a goal is scored or a game is won. So, it’s natural to follow other’s enthusiasm and cheer for their local teams. Such attachment often increases their love for sports. In my country, many youths are ardent fans of football and they have their favourite teams. When their favourite team plays, they take every opportunity to support them and sometimes go to the stadium to show their support. Sportsmen are often idolized by youths and they love to follow their favourite sportsmen as enthusiastic followers.


Q2: Is there any violence at sporting events in your country?

Answer: Generally speaking, such violence is very rare in my country. However, a dispute among fans are quite common and most of the time they are verbal than physical. They often take social networking platforms and blogs to criticise their rivals. I can, however, recall a very unfortunate event that took place probably three or four years ago when the fans of two completing teams got agitated and three people died due to this incident while several others were critically injured. The security of the stadium has been revamped to address such unexpected events and hopefully, it wouldn't happen again.


Q3. Should athletes be better role models?

Answer:  I believe most fans start adoring an athlete or a sportsman due to the spectacular performance he or she shows. Thus football magicians like Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi have several million fans and many of them started idolising them without knowing them personally. However, when these youths start following their favourite sportsmen or athletes, they sometimes follow them blindly. Thus considering the impact, famous sports personality should always try to lead exemplary lives as thousands of others mimic them. They are also famous and the media is always watching them. Any bad conduct can bring controversy to their fame and they should try to become better role models for youths as it is a social and moral responsibility for any celebrity.


Q4. What benefits do international sporting events bring?

Answer: International sporting events bring nations together and eliminate the tension and hostility among them. Such an event is highly popular and can be a great reason for people to enjoy the competition in the stadium. Thus such competitions foster tourism and help local businesses to flourish. Such prestigious events sometimes encourage young children all around the world to take some sort of sports. This is good for spreading the essence of sports globally and I think sports have economic, political and cultural impacts on society.


Q5. Is it important for a country to win lots of medals?

Answer: I believe every country wants to win as many trophies as possible since it represents how great a nation is in sports and athleticism. Being at the top of the medallist is often considered a great achievement but I personally believe that it is not absolutely necessary. Participating in international sporting events like the Olympic is often inspiring for many small nations. A few medals could be often satisfying and inspiring for them. The most important thing in an international sporting competition is being able to perform and enjoy it, not the number of medals won. When athletes and sportsmen from all around the world gather at a common platform, they not only represent their own country but also the whole humanity and this is important for maintaining global peace and harmony.


Q6. The money professional sportsmen earn is significantly higher than that the earning of other professionals. Is it justified?

Answer: I think a very few fortunate sports celebrities earn a hefty amount of money while most others do not. Considering the training, dedication, challenge and sacrifice that are part of their lives, the earning, in my opinion, is justified. We have to keep in mind that their career is short spanned and they earn because they perform really well. The payment to those celebrities is high because people buy tickets when they perform and different companies that earn millions of dollars each day want them as brand ambassadors. Since these payments are legit and transparent, I do not see any problem if they earn a lot.


  • Topic: Historic Place.

1. How do people in your country feel about protecting historic buildings?

2. Do you think an area can benefit from having an interesting historic place locally? In what way?

3. What do you think will happen to historic places or buildings in the future? Why?

4. How were you taught history when you were at school?

5. Are there other ways people can learn about history, apart from at school? How?

6. Do you think history will still be a school subject in the future? Why?


Q1: How do people in your country feel about protecting historic buildings?

Answer: I believe people from my country would want to protect and preserve important historic buildings except maybe a few who put business ahead of their morality and rational thinking. We had our moments when people spontaneously protested the plan to demolish such sites in the past. Due to a huge public backlash and outcry, the authority had been forced to abandon their plan to build multi-storied commercial buildings by smashing the old buildings that have historical significance. Thus citizens in my country are sensitive about protecting anything that has historical importance.


Q2: Do you think an area can benefit from having an interesting historic place locally? In what way?

Answer: Definitely an area with an interesting historic place can reap the benefits from different perspectives. First, such a place would attract a huge number of tourists and help grow different local businesses. Besides, such areas are strategically important for the local government and it can bring more development projects to the area. The government takes extra measures to protect such areas from natural disasters and thus get more attention. On top of that, the flourishing tourism of the area spreads the local custom and tradition to other parts of the country. Thus the development of such a region occurs faster than other areas.


Q3. What do you think will happen to historic places or buildings in the future? Why?

Answer: That is hard to tell and all would depend on the future generation. If they feel that such locations and buildings are worth preserving, the authority would take steps to protect them. Otherwise, many of them, which are less internationally known, would disappear and would be converted to ultramodern commercial buildings. Prominent sites, on the other hand, would be preserved as they will attract many international tourists. Some of them will be debilitated due to the lack of maintenance and a few new ones would emerge as historic places and buildings in the distant future. The main reason some of the historic places and building will disappear is that they are less popular and can't sell tickets to tourists. So the authority or the owner would like to convert them for business purpose. The urbanisation, pollution and the need for more buildings for the increasing population are threats to such historic sites.


Q4: How were you taught history when you were at school?

Answer: Our teachers mainly taught us history from the textbooks and we were lucky to have a few amazing teachers who explained how history is important to understand the future. They often explained important events and characters from history and told us how these events and powerful men have shaped future events. We were required to study history books and watch documentaries made on real historical facts and those were not included in our syllabus. Thus we were able to learn more about history. Our school authority took us to different museums and historic sites, generally two to three times a year, and those excursions were our chances to explore more and witness the artefacts from the past. I can recall one particular occasion when we were taken to a war museum and we learned how wars that we hate so much had such profound impacts on our human society.


Q5: Are there other ways people can learn about history, apart from at school? How?

Answer:  I believe reading about history and researching them online is the best way to learn more about it. What we learn about history in our school is just the beginning. To truly explore the past, we need to read a lot of books and the book choices should be based on the interests of the readers. The Intenet is an amazing tool that can help us learn about our past and the interactive videos found on different websites are truly helpful. It offers us to dive deeper into history.  Finally, travelling is an excellent way to learn about the world we live in and how this world was shaped by different civilisations. Someone who travels extensively learns about history faster and witness history instead of assuming them.


Q6: Do you think history will still be a school subject in the future? Why?

Answer:  I believe history is not merely a collection of past events, stories of civilisations and powerful characters. It is rather a way to look at the future. Thus the importance of history in the future will increase and more students would be interested to learn about it than today. We are yet to comprehend the full potential of history and it is still frowned upon as a subject for weaker students. But in the future, we will realise how important it is for people to learn it for a prosperous future. So I do not see any reasons history will disappear from the school syllabus.
