    Re: IELTS Speaking

    ELTS Speaking : Sample Answer to Spoken Topics
    Special gift
    Describe the best present/gift you have received:
    • Who send it? What is the gift? What is it for?
    • When did you receive it?
    • Detail information about the present.
    Last year , my wife celebrated my birthday at home. She bought a electronic dictionary as birthday gift. I like the electronic dictionary very much. It's blue and quite small. It fits into my pocket. I remember at that time, my wife said to me :"she decided to immigrate to Canada with me. In future, we must study very hard .And she hoped that the electronic dictionary could help me to improve my English." On that day, I was very happy because my wife agreed to immigrate to Canada finally. Also, with the help of the electronic dictionary, I made such rapid progress that before long I began to write articles in English.

    1) In China, when will people send the present?
    Oh, attend the party, such as Wedding Party, Birthday Party. During Spring
    Festival, people give presents each other, including clothes, books, flowers and foods.

    2) Compare the gift which people have received 10 years ago to the present that people now are receiving, what's the difference between them?
    ( try to compare the gift you received in your teenage with the gift children received now )

    Oh, I think the gift was monotonic before. For example, I often received a notebook as gift. But now, there are various gifts to choose from. Such as flowers, wine, food, clothes etc.

    3) Just image the gift in the future children will receive.
    In the future, I think more and more children will receive intellectual gifts, such as electronic dictionary, notebook computer and so on.

    4) Just image the gift in the future people will receive.
    In the future, oh, in most case, people will give flowers each other. I think flowers will be the most popular present.
    Building
    • What is the interesting building in your country?
    • What is it located?
    • What is it used for?
    • Explain why you think it is the most interesting?
    I think the interesting building is the Great Wall. It runs across north China like a huge dragon. It was used to enemies. Soldiers used to keep watch on the Great Wall. When the enemy came , fires were lit to warn other soldiers. I think the Great Wall is the most interesting building. Because it is one of the wonders of the world and it was one of the few man-made objects on earth that could be seen by the astronauts who landed on the moon. Also, the Great Wall has become a symbol of both China's proud history and its present strength.

    1) Are there some old buildings in your hometown? Where and Describe it?
    Wenfeng Tower, built in 1420, is located in the southern of Anyang City.
    During the Ming and Qing dynasties, people came to the tower to worship the God of Heaven and pray for a good harvest. Nowadays, it serves as a museum of history. Murals of Wenfeng Tower give visitors a feel for the great artistic achievements of ancient Chinese civilization. In a word, I think the Wenfeng Tower is the most interesting building, and it is the oldest building in my hometown.


    2) Compare the differences between the constructions in your city with them in 20 years ago? Describe the building styles in detail?
    The traditional buildings are made of the red brick and always have curved eaves. Thousands of buildings look the same. But now, various buildings with different colors and styles have been going up in my hometown. In addition, room is equipped with kitchen and bathroom. This is very convenient.

    3) What are people's attitudes to old building today and that of our later generation? Should we protect them? Why?
    People, including our later generation, advocate that government should protect old buildings .Because old buildings represent the great artistic achievements of ancient Chinese civilization.

    4) What role do you think the old and modern buildings play in the society?
    Oh, modern buildings are for us to live and work, while old buildings are for us to visit and research.

    5) Compare the differences between house and apartment?
    In China, there is a big yard beside house, where we can plant some flowers and trees etc. But house is more expensive. Apartment is convenient and cheap but small.
    Friend
    • Who is your best friend?
    • How did you meet?
    • What do you do with your friend?
    Tell me the way you make friends with others and youu think what people should be your friends?
    My best friend is xxx. We were in the same class for 5 years. At that time, we often gather together to study and play. Now, we work in the same company. Friendship is extremely important to me. It’s like being brothers or sisters, but even more than that. I mean, I would do nearly anything for my friend, and I would expect that he would do the same for me. If he didn't help me when I was in need, then I would not consider him a good friend. I have a lot of different kinds of friends. Some are loud, others are shy. I prefer having a real variety of friends.

    1) Do you think it is easy to make friends in China?
    Yes, of course. Nowadays, transportation and communication are easy and convenient. We have more opportunities to meet all kinds of people and make friends with them.

    2) what do you think the difference between adults and children making friend?
    The difference is attitude or mindset between adults and children making friend. In general, children like to make friend with good students because they can help each other in studying. But adults make friends with anyone they like.

    3) How do children make friend?
    Children to children.

    4) What is the most important thing in friendship?
    Trust.

    5) What is the second important thing in friendship?
    Helping each other.

    6) What makes friendship break up?
    Misunderstanding.
    For example, when I studied in Chongqing University, one day, my roommate lost his watch. He thought I had taken it. At that moment, I was very angry but I said nothing, and then I helped him to look for the watch. Finally, we found it in his pocket. My roommate apologized to me. I forgave him his rudeness. So, I think trust is the most important thing between friends.
    Festival
    There are many festivals in China, such as Spring Festival, National Day and Yuan Xiao Festival etc. The Spring Festival is the biggest festival in China. I suppose it's somewhat like Christmas is in western countries. Spring Festival is the only time when all families gather together and stores and business are closed for several days. During the Spring Festival, we eat delicious food, visit relatives and friends, and watch TV to welcome the New Year. I also like to try and contact some friends before and see how they’re doing and what they’ re up to.
    We give each other presents for the New Year.

    Travel
    Describe your latest interesting travel in detail.
    • When and where you go?
    • Whom you go with?
    • What things you do?
    Last year, I went to Shilin with my wife. Shilin, is located about 80 kilometers from Kunming. Kunming is the capital city of Yunnan Province .It took us 3 days to get Shilin. Shilin is famous for its large areas of stone forests. All stones in Shilin are vividly shaped, resembling various figures. Some stones look like a monkey, and some stones look like a bird. In a word, the stones are fantastic. In addition, I met a classmate of Chongqing University in Shilin. We talked about the things and persons which we remembered in school. I think that is an interesting trip.

    1) Describe some interesting things happened during your travel. Can u describe it for me?
    Ok. I met a classmate of Chongqing University .We talked about the things and persons which we remembered in school. I think that is an interesting thing.

    2) What is your goal to travel and your reason to travel is
    I enjoy traveling. It is so interesting to see how other people live, and it is really an amazing way to learn about different cultures.

    3) Describe the advantage and disadvantage of travel for the country
    Tourism is a useful source of foreign currency for the country, but sometimes so me visitors destroy cultural heritage.

    4) Why China can attract people to travel?
    A 5,000--year cultural heritage attract more people to China.

    5) Do Chinese people like to travel now?
    Yes, of course. Since the opening-up, transportation is easy and convenient. Also, we have ample money for the journey.

    6) Which festival do people travel in and where do people travel to?
    We often go to resorts around National Day, such as Forbidden City, Summer Palace, and Temple of Heaven in Beijing.

    7) Compare the difference about traveling among Chinese people between 100 years ago and now?
    100 years ago, transportation was very difficult; few people could travel in China because most of people were very poor. But now, transportation is easy and convenient and we have ample money for the journey.
    Natural scenery
    • What is the most beautiful natural scenery you have ever seen?
    • What is the specific point?
    • Where did you see it?
    • Who did you go with?
    Last year, I went to Shilin with my wife. Shilin, located about 80 kilometers from Kunming. Kunming is the capital city of Yunnan Province. It took us 3 days to get there. Shilin is famous for its large areas of stone forests. All stones in Shilin are vividly shaped, resembling various figures. Some stones look like a monkey, and some stones look like a bird. In a word, the stones are fantastic. Also, there is a lake in Shilin. Surrounded by green mountains and forests, the lake is not destroyed by any pollution. Travelers can row a boat on the lake or stroll on the shores to enjoy its special quiet beauty.

    1) What measures does your government take to protect natural scenery?
    The government establishes protective zones of natural scenery. Educate people to protect natural environment. People who destroy natural scenery will be punished.

    2) Do you think it is effective?
    Yes, of course. Establish protective zones can prevent pollution.

    3) What role does tourism play in your country's economy?
    Tourism is playing a more and more important role in our country's economy. Since the opening up, the number of tourists has increased quickly, and this is a useful source of foreign currency for the country. (159 Also, tourism can accelerate other industry to develop.)

    4) What should you pay attention to in travel?
    Safety, weather, and I think it is necessary to bring some medicine.
    Transportation
    Give me some opinion on the transportation in your city?
    In my opinion, one of the biggest problems of transportation is traffic jams in Anyang city. It has become common to see passengers and drivers having to wait in long lines of buses and cars moving at a snail's pace on the streets during the rush hours. There are several reasons for this problem. First, the number of vehicles is increasing much more rapidly than the building of roads. Second, there seem to be too many private cars and not enough public buses. Third, many people, including drivers, pedestrians and cyclists do not obey traffic rules properly, especially at busy intersections.
    In my opinion, one of the biggest problems of transportation is traffic jams in Anyang city. In view of the seriousness of this problem, effective measures must be taken before things get worse. On the one hand, the government should invest more money in the building of new roads and the repairing and maintenance of old ones, particularly those in busy areas of the cities. On the other hand, the number of private cars in urban areas should be limited while the number of public buses should be increased. At the same time, it is essential that stricter traffic rules and regulations be issued to strengthen traffic control.


    1) Compare the different transportation, such as between plane, train and car.
    Drive car to travel is convenient because we can set out at any time. But it is too slow and it may spend us much more time. Plane ticket is more expensive. So, I think train is the best transportation for me.

    2) Can you just image the transportation in the future and describe it for me?
    In the future, the speed of car, train and plane will be faster. And, the transportation will be easier and convenient.

    3) Just compare the transportation in the past and now? What transportation do you like and why?
    Nowadays, we have more choice on the transportation than the past. Such as tube, plane etc, even though in the small city. I like tube, because tube is safety and tube ticket is cheap.
    Music
    What role do you think music plays in our life?
    Just as other kinds of art, music has become an indispensable part of human culture. It brings us with nutritious spiritual foods, enriches our leisure life .In addition, music can do good to us very much. It can elicit the imagination of us. And, it teaches us how to distinguish beauty from nature. Listening to the music, I am sure you will soon be refreshed from a day's hard work and relax.

    1) Can you tell me the western music's impact on the world music?
    Oh, it is a difficult question, the western music is definitely great, and it plays an important role on the world music. Many musical talents and eminent musicians have been trained in western country, such as Beethoven, Mozart and so on.

    2) Do you think it's necessary to open a music course in high school?

And different styles clothes represent different cultures. All people want their life to be filled with variety, color and comfort by wearing clothes. We will have a good mood when we wear beautiful clothes. I like leisure clothes very much. Because it is not only cheap but also convenient to wear. (In addition, the material of leisure clothes is more environmentally friendly.) But I must wear work clothes when we are working. Otherwise, I will be fined.

    2) What is your opinion of "one--child policy"?

    Re: IELTS Speaking


    PHẦN THI NÓI CỦA IELTS


    Phần thi nói hay phần phỏng vấn có thể được mô tả là phần dễ nhất của kỳ thi IELTS. Khác với nhiều kỳ thi khác, chỉ có bạn và giám khảo hỏi thi. Bài thi được thiết kế nhằm tạo cơ hội để bạn nói tiếng Anh. Các chủ đề thường liên quan đến bạn và các ý kiến của bạn.


    Phần phỏng vấn kéo dài khoảng 12 phút và có 3 phần:

    - Phần đầu tiên: bạn được hỏi một số câu chung chung về bản thân, gia đình và công việc của bạn.

    - Phần thứ hai: bạn nói ngắn gọn về một chủ đề, ví dụ như thầy/cô giáo mà bạn quý, một lễ hội quan trọng hoặc một ngày tuyệt vời trong cuộc đời bạn.

    - Phần cuối cùng: dành cho thảo luận ngắn về một chủ đề liên quan. Ví dụ, nếu bạn vừa trình bày về các lễ hội, giám khảo sẽ hỏi bạn về tầm quan trọng của các lễ hội trong cuộc sống hiện đại và thái độ đối với chúng thời ông bà bạn. Bạn có thể được hỏi xem bạn có nghĩ rằng các truyền thống đang dần mất đi trong thế giới hiện đại hay không.


    Một vài gợi ý cho phần thi Nói:


    Lời khuyên duy nhất là hãy cố gắng nói càng nhiều càng tốt và cố hết sức mình! Bài thi nói của bạn dựa trên độ chính xác, trôi chảy, lượng từ vựng, phát âm và cách sử dụng ngôn ngữ phù hợp.

    Phần thi này được thiết kế sao cho càng đi sâu thì càng khó. Các giai đoạn đầu giúp bạn bình tĩnh và thư giãn trước khi có cơ hội thể hiện vốn ngôn ngữ của mình.

    - Không nên nói kiểu học thuộc lòng ở phần đầu. Giám khảo sẽ nhận biết được điều này và sẽ chuyển sang chủ đề khác.

    - Cố gắng không chỉ trả lời Có/Không mà nên thêm vào một số chi tiết.

    - Sử dụng một phút chuẩn bị để ghi lại các ý bạn định nói. Bạn có thể nhìn vào những gì mình ghi và dùng các ý này để trình bày.

    - Phần thuyết trình giúp bạn có cơ hội thể hiện một loạt các thì bạn có thể sử dụng và cả một vài từ thú vị.

    - Ở phần cuối, bạn cũng có cơ hội chứng tỏ các kỹ năng nói của mình. Bạn cần trả lời đầy đủ và trôi chảy các câu hỏi hết mức có thể và đưa ra các lý do biện chứng cho ý kiến của bạn.

    - Nếu bạn nói sai và nhận ra rằng mình sai, nên tự sửa lại – đây là điều mà những người bản ngữ làm!

    - Cách phát âm và ngữ điệu rất quan trọng trong kỳ thi này. Nói chung, bạn có thể phạm lỗi ngữ pháp mà mọi người vẫn hiểu được bạn nhưng nếu bạn không phát âm rõ ràng thì bạn khó mà giao tiếp được. Nếu bạn nói không có ngữ điệu và nghe có vẻ thờ ơ thì người nghe bạn nói sẽ nghĩ là bạn thực sự không quan tâm đến câu chuyện!!

    Good luck!!!
