Một số câu hỏi thường gặp cho chủ đề Animals

Animals Vocabulary

Do you like to watch TV programs about wild animals?

Actually,  I don’t make a special effort to find those shows, although I do like some of the National Geographic documentaries that I stumble onto. The images of wildlife, especially those in which a predator is pursuing its victim, are immensely fascinating to me. 

  • Make an effort to V: cố gắng làm gì đó
  • Stumble onto (v): vô tình bắt gặp
  • Immensely (adv): vô cùng
  • Fascinating (adj): thú vị

What is the most popular animal in your country?

Vietnam was historically a country that produced agricultural goods. Therefore, we often refer to the water buffalo as our friends because they help us on the farm. They are frequently shown as one of the national symbols on postcards. They were also selected to serve as the mascot for the 2003 South East Asian athletic event that Vietnam hosted.

  • Agricultural (adj): Nông nghiệp
  • Symbol (n): Biểu tượng
  • Select (v): Lựa chọn
  • Mascot (n): Linh vật

Why do some people keep pets at home?

I’ve read that owning a pet is a sort of treatment for people with mental illnesses. Additionally, having a pet makes a terrific company for those like me who live alone. Some people treat their dog or cat as a buddy and teach their kids the value of treating animals like family.

  • Mental illnesses: vấn đề về tinh thần
  • Make a terrific company for: bầu bạn
  • Buddy (n): bạn bè

Do you like to see animals in the zoo?

I’ve only gone to the zoo once, so I can’t say for sure if I enjoy it. When you were a child, it was enjoyable to watch exotic animals like lions or giraffes. But as I’ve gotten older, I’ve come to understand that zoos, where animals are confined and shut away from their natural habitat, are no different than prisons for them.

  • Exotic (adj): kỳ lạ
  • Confine (v): giam giữ
  • Shut away (v): đóng lại

What do you think are the benefits for children to keep pets?

Children who are raised with pets can benefit in a number of ways. One of them is that kids who have to care for pets can grow up with a sense of responsibility. They need to learn how to bathe or feed their animals. Additionally, having a pet encourages kids to live a healthy lifestyle. Kids may find it to be a fun and effective way to get fitness by taking their pets on walks around the neighborhood.

  • Responsibility (n): trách nhiệm
  • Encourage (v): thúc đẩy
  • Healthy lifestyle: lối sống khỏe mạnh
  • Effective (adj): hiệu quả
  • Get fitness: giữ dáng

What’s the role of animals in your country?

I don’t know about other nations, but animals play a big part in Vietnamese culture. The first is that they are a significant part of the Vietnamese diet. For instance, cows and pigs are raised for their milk and meat, respectively. Furthermore, some animals are tamed to aid humans in farming. To prepare a field for planting, they can move a plow across it using water buffaloes or oxen. Finally, some canine breeds are also taught to assist their owners in deterring intruders.

  • Diet (n): chế độ thức ăn
  • Respectively (adv): lần lượt là
  • Tamed (adj): được thuần hóa
  • Aid somebody in V-ing (v) = Assist somebody in V-ing: giúp ai đó làm gì
  • Plow (n): cái cày
  • Canine (adj): giống chó
  • Deter (v): đe dọa, răn đe, ngăn cản
  • Intruder (n): kẻ đột nhập

What are people’s attitudes towards animals in your country?

To my knowledge, animal protection is becoming more and more important to Vietnamese citizens. I’ve seen that more zoos or nature preserves have been built to conserve endangered species. The government has also passed regulations to stop unlawful hunting and trafficking. Not to add that having pets is growing in popularity among Vietnamese people. 

  • Conserve (v): bảo tồn
  • Regulation (n): Quy định
  • Unlawful hunting and trafficking: Săn bắn và buôn bán bất hợp pháp

Do you think cities are suitable places for keeping a pet?

I don’t think so. This is due to the fact that cities are locations with heavy traffic and tons of development, which harms pets’ health and increases their likelihood of being involved in accidents or having insufficient play space.

  • Heavy traffic: Giao thông đông đúc
  • Tons of: Hàng tấn
  • Likelihood (n): khả năng
  • Insufficient (adj): không đủ

If you have children in the future, will you allow them to keep a pet?

Of course, sure. I guess having a pet is good for a kid’s development. Pets can become their friends and provide them with emotional support by sharing a home with them.

  • Emotional support: Hỗ trợ tinh thần
  • Share a home with: làm bạn với
