Part 1 – Topic Study
Do you prefer to study in the mornings or in the afternoons?
I prefer to study in the morning, that’s when I feel the most clear-headed. I often study for about 2 to 3 hours before taking a break.
- clear headed (adj): tỉnh táo
What subjects are you studying?
I’m a university student of Economics, currently I’m taking courses in Microeconomics, Philosophy and mandatory Physical Education.
Do you like your subject?
Well yes, I like my major. I’ve always been fascinated by numbers and how societies work. Understanding the economy is crucial to understand societies.
- to be fascinated by : hấp dẫn bởi
Do you have anything that you don’t like about your study?
Sometimes, the things that are taught in my classes seem to be outdated. The data that we use to do our analysis assignments are old. I’d rather study the current situation than what happened decades ago.
- outdated (adj): lỗi thời
What technology do you use when you study?
I use my laptop to write my essays and also take online classes, especially during this covid pandemic. It’s such a blessing in disguise as I now manage my homework entirely online and it’s much easier than it used to be.
- a blessing in disguise: cái may trong cái rủi
IELTS Speaking part 2: Describe your favorite subject at school.
You should say:
- What the subject it was
- When you started learning it
- What you learned
And explain why it was your favorite subject
I did study a variety of courses in school, including math, history, geography, and several different languages. I’d like to seize this opportunity to talk about biology, which is one of my all-time favorite topics during my time at school. As a result of my childhood fascination with the drawings of wild creatures in scientific books, I had a predisposition toward this subject from an early age. However, among the divisions of biology, I developed a keen interest in the section about the study of life.
All credit belongs to Mr. Minh, whose excellent teaching abilities and affable demeanor sparked our interest in the lessons. He frequently uses technology and offers us animated films to make learning much more enjoyable. As our school always emphasizes practical components as well, we also had the chance to visit the lab once a week. I will never forget the experience when, for the very first time, I saw microorganisms with the aid of a microscope.
Back then my school frequently planned field trips to locations like science city, botanical gardens, and many others to foster students’ interest about this subject. After class, I continue to dig deeper into the world of nature by watching wildlife programs on channels like Discovery or Animal Planet.
Overall, I was very fond of this subject mostly because of my teacher, Mr. Minh, who would always come up with brilliant ideas to convey the lessons. I also believe that the subject itself is very close by nature, as life is always surrounding us.
- Seize opportunity: giành lấy cơ hội
- Predisposition (n): thiên hướng nghiêng về cái gì
- Affable (adj): thân thiện
- Demeanor (n): cách cư xử
- Sparked one’s interest: khơi gợi niềm vui, sự thích thú
- Emphasize (v): nhấn mạnh
- Microorganisms (n): vi sinh vật
- Field trip (n): chuyến tham quan học tập
- Dig deeper into s.th: tìm hiểu sâu hơn về cái gì
- Be fond of s.th: yêu thích cái gì
- Come up with s.th: nảy ra (ý tưởng)
Part 3: Education
1. What makes a good student?
One should be a good student when he or she learns new things at every chance, not only what is taught in the classroom, but also what his or her surroundings teach him or her. A studious student would also ask numerous significant questions and seek their answers, which finally led him/her to the truth. Lastly, it is evident that ordinary people would evaluate a student’s performance based on the grades earned during the courses.
- Seek (v): tìm kiếm
- Studious (adj): ham học
2. What role should the teacher have in the classroom?
The primary responsibility of a teacher should be to assist children in their learning journey, based on the school’s curriculum. However, a good teacher should also serve as a mentor or exemplary model in the classroom so that his or her students can learn from him or her many other important lessons of life, such as the importance of discipline, punctuality, hard effort, honesty, and respect for others, and in general how to become respectable and accountable members of society.
- Discipline (n): tính kỷ luật
- Exemplary model (n): hình mẫu lý tưởng
- Punctuality (n): tính đúng giờ
4. How has teaching changed in your country in the last few decades?
The most obvious alteration should be how chalk, pencils, marker pens, and writing boards have been replaced by computers, keyboards, projectors, and wall screens in the classroom. As a result of the rapid development of information and mobile technology, digital games and learning applications are becoming increasingly popular, making teachers and students more connected than ever before.
5. What is the difference between the way children learn and the way adults learn?
Without a doubt, children and adults acquire knowledge in distinct ways. Adults are self-learners and determine what should be learnt next, whereas young children rely on adults (teachers) to determine their future lessons, tasks, and subjects. In addition, children prefer to take information at face value because they have little or no experience from which to draw conclusions, but adults tend to challenge information and accept it only after verifying it in light of their own ideas and experiences.
- At face value: trên bề mặt
- Draw conclusion: đưa ra kết luận
