Dịch: Trần Tố Linh

Ở bài giảng luyện thi IELTS hôm nay cô sẽ chia sẽ với các em các từ vựng cũng như các câu hỏi rất hay gặp trong bài thi ielts speaking về chủ đề Relationship. Chúng ta cùng vào bài nhé.

Part 1: Phần câu hỏi chung

Question 1: Examiner: Do you see your friends very often?

You: Well, to be honest, I used to push the boat out with my friends most of the time, but I am in last year of university now, so I am very busy with my study. For that reason, I don’t often have the chance to take a break and spend time with my friends any more.

Question 2: Examiner: What do you like about your close friends?

You:  I think we enjoy each other’s company … we see eye-to-eye on most things so we rarely fall out with each other.

Question 3: Examiner: Have you known each other long?

You: Most of them yes … although my closest friend Carrie … we struck up a relationship at college and got on like a house on fire … but yes … my other friendships go back years to when we were at school.

Part 2: Phần thuyết trình

Describe a person you are very close to. You should say:

  • who this person is
  • when you met them
  • where you met them

and say what it is about them you like so much.

You: Well, I would like to talk about my soulmate Van, who used to be my classmate and desk-mate in high school. She was one of the most impressive friends of mine and a really talented person.

I benefited a lot from Van, learning from her attitude towards studying, her persistence, learning methods, and how to be a responsible person.

I usually remember Van for several reasons.

Firstly, I feel that Van was really diligent.

I still remember she was always the first to come and the last to leave our class though she was a grade-A student in class.

I was encouraged as well. She often told me that genius comes from one percent of inspiration and ninety-nine per cent of perspiration, and I really admire and appreciate her diligence and responsibility.

Besides, I also consider that Van was utterly brainy.

She could get the hang of our lessons’ points in a short time, and after mastering those tricky concepts and formulas, she was also willing to give us a tutorial to help us understand those knowledge.

And I was the biggest beneficiary since I was the one who sat next to her; I still appreciate the valuable aid she gave me.

What amazed me more was that she was so versatile.

In addition to being an excellent student, she was also talented and good at other fields. For example, she was proficient in English and Japanese; she excels in playing the piano, and more surprisingly, she was even good at calligraphy. How impressive that was!

Personally, she was the one I always wanted to be, and she set a good example for me to follow.

All in all, those are the reasons why when I read the question that you gave me, Van is the first person that came to my mind.

Part 3: Phần câu hỏi chi tiết

Question 1: Examiner: Do you think marriage is still as important as ever?

You: Yes … it certainly is in my country … I think the problem for some people is a lack of commitment … all relationships have their ups and downs … but some people prefer to break up rather than working at the relationship.

Question 2: Examiner: What do you think is the ideal time to get married?

You: Personally … When I am mature enough to understand what a married life is, and when I meet a person that I not only can fall head over heels in love with but also can commit to her for the rest of my life, I think that is the right time for a big decision like marriage.

Question 3: Examiner: Is it important to keep in contact with our friends when we’re in a relationship?

You: Sure … it’s so easy to drift apart from your friends when you fall in love … but I think both partners should try not to lose touch with their friends … that’s the best way to cement their friendship.
