IELTS Speaking Part 1: Social network
1. What kinds of social networking websites do you like to use?
Like most of my friends, I use Facebook. I used to upload many photos on this site. However, I am now more careful with what I post online so I just use the messenger function to chat with my friends.
- Function (n): chức năng
2. Is it easy for you to make friends on social networking websites?
I would rather say that it’s easier to connect and talk to people on social media. Friends are people who I can trust, and I certainly don’t trust strangers online.
- Stranger (n): người lạ
3. Will you use these sites more in the future?
I hope I can cut back on the time I spend on these services as I want to spend more time with people in real life. I realised that even though I can talk to many online, nothing can beat real-life interaction.
- Interaction (n): tương tác
IELTS Speaking Part 2
Describe a trip that you took by public transportation.
You should say:
- When and where you went
- What kind of transport you used
- How your trip was
And explain why you chose to use public transportation for this trip.
I’m going to talk about the time when I took the bus to work last month.
It was a Monday morning and my motorbike had broken down the night before. I could not get my vehicle fixed in time and therefore opted for riding a public bus.
I got up 30 minutes earlier than usual and walked to the bus stop near my house. When the number 107 bus was approaching the bus stop, I waved to let the driver know I wanted to get on. Once on board, I was instructed by the driver to put around 6.000 VND into a transparent plastic box and push a button on top from a ticket printer on top of it. And that’s how I bought my first bus tickets after many years. I used to ride the bus since I was a high school student but at that time there was a person selling tickets on the bus.
The trip was quite smooth because it was still very early in the morning, although I was quite worried because the driver drove a bit fast. On the bus with me were other people who were coming to work and students, who actually got reduced prices for their tickets. Through the window, I could see the sight of my city on the way to work for the first time. Usually, I had been too occupied dealing with the traffic.
Finally, I got to work on time without being stressed by the traffic. It was a nice ride and pleasant experience.
- To opt for something: chọn cái gì đó
- Transparent (adj): trong suốt
- Reduced price: giá giảm
- Occupied (adj): bận rộn, bận bịu
IELTS Speaking Part 3: Public transport
1. How easy is it to travel around your country?
Well I’d say it’s fairly easy to travel in Vietnam. The most popular mode of transport is obviously using a motorcycle. Even if you don’t own one, there are loads of ride hailing apps that allow you to book one when you travel somewhere else. For long distance travelling, people prefer coaches, trains or planes, whose tickets could be bought quite effortlessly through mobile apps and websites. However, when it comes to public transportation, I admit that there’s still a lot of room to improve.
- Ride hailing apps: các app xe công nghệ
- Coach (n): xe khách dạng bus
- Effortlessly (adv): một cách dễ dàng
2. Which method of travel do you consider safest? Why?
I firmly believe flight is their mode of travel and I’ll explain why. There are countless reports indicating that accidents involving aeroplanes are extremely rare. So, the proportion of passengers who get killed or injured by aeroplane-related accidents are lower compared to other types of vehicles.
While it is true that devastating flight accidents happen sometimes, only one out of millions of flights results in fatality. Therefore, while I understand why some people may have fear of flying since they feel that they can’t control the situation, I still think flying is the least risky way to travel.
- Countless (adj): vô số
- Devastating (adj): thảm khốc
- Fatality (n): sự tử vong

3. Has travel become safer in recent years than that was in the past?
This is quite a nuanced question that needs a nuanced answer. If only technology is concerned, I can say confidently that all types of travel are getting safer and better. However, we also need to think about the people who control the vehicles. I cannot tell for sure that people are becoming better at driving motorcycles or cars. That being said, I’m leaning toward travelling has become safer because in recent years there has been lots of effort put in driver education.
- Nuanced (adj): nhiều sắc thái, lớp nghĩa
- To lean toward: nghiêng về
4. How do you think people will travel in the future?
I’m a fan of technology and artificial intelligence and I really think self-driving vehicles will become a reality. If I’m not mistaken, many automobile companies have already been researching this technology. I think it’s a positive development as self-driving cars will be safer because computers tend to make fewer errors than humans.
- Artificial intelligence (n): trí thông minh nhân tạo
- To tend to: có xu hướng
