B. Bài mẫu chủ đề Describe a Famous person
1. Describe a person who is good at his or her job
Today I would like to describe a person who does very well at work, and that is no other than Ms. My Tam, a very famous singer in Vietnam. Of all the celebrities, My Tam has always been beacon of light not just for her fame but also for her great passion for the work that she has committed to.
The first time got to know My Tam was, like, 10 years ago when I came across her albums in a music store near my house. Her smoldering eye makeup and iconic hairstyle instantly got into my heart, and you know what's better than that? her amazing mezzo-soprano voice. I instantly got hooked on her voice upon hearing it played in the music store.
Besides her angelic voice, My Tam is also known for her dedication to her work. She once told the press that she loves her job, and she said that she was willing to be a singer for the rest of her life without getting married, which was quite a statement and made the headline for weeks to come at that particular time. Well you know, I always look up to any well-known public figures who were able to devote all aspects their lives to their line of work. My Tam struck at people's heartcore by delivering down-to-earth music that inspired thousands of audiences regard- less of ages, genders or social status, she was also known for her tireless charity work. She was such a busy-bee that sometimes she did not care about herself. At one time, she dropped everything to sing live in the concert held by the disadvantaged and donated a huge sum of money for them. She is, by all means, the greatest woman that I have ever seen.
- A beacon of light (n.p): ngọn hải đăng
- Come across: tình cờ thấy
- Smoldering (adj): chảy bỏng, nồng nàn
- Get hooked on: bị nghiện

2. Describe a female leader you would like to meet
Thái Vân Linh
Okay I'm gonna talk about Thái Vân Linh - also known as Shark Linh - a female leader l'd love to see in person. I will refer to her as 'Shark Linh' in this small talk.
Although born in Vietnam, Shark Linh was brought to the US with her family when she was very little. Therefore, whereas she has an impressive command of English, she's still occasionally struggling in getting her ideas across in Vietnamese. However, the language barrier does not hinder her from embarking on a new venture in Vietnam. she rejected great offers from American corporations to become the CEO at VietnamCapital, and later launched her own start-up - Rita Phil – a company that sells tailor - made bridal gowns.
Shark Linh is most famous for her role as a Shark in Shark Tank Vietnam - the Vietnamese version of the famous reality TV series. Though she's usually the calmer Shark among the four who usually take a gentler approach when she makes coments on others, she's also very sharp upon making decisions. From what l've observed throughout the series, Shark Linh only invested in fields she had great knowledge of.
Shark Linh has been a great role model for Vietnamese young women. Her famous saying "I see no discrepancy in agility and ability between men and women" and her appearance in the show has inspired thousands of Vietnamese women, encouraging them to work in the field of finance.
- See in person: gặp ngoài đời
- Has an impressive command of: có năng lực xuất sắc về lĩnh vực gì
- Get one's ideas across: truyền đạt thông tin/ý tường
- Language barrier: rào cản ngôn ngữ

- Role model: là hình mẫu
- Discrepancy: sự khác biệt
3. Describe an interesting old person you would like to meet
Bà Tân Vlog
An interesting old person I would like to meet is Bà Tân Vlog, which can be roughly translated into English as "Grandma Tân the Vlogger". Grandma Tân is not a ordinary elderly woman who sees knitting as her hobby - she is a Youtube superstar! Her Youtube channel has roughly 1.5 million subscribers now - an impressive feat for an elderly Youtuber.
Grandma Tân is famous for her ability to make big and spicy dishes, as she usually put it "massive and fiery". One day she might surprise you with a "massive and fiery" hot pot; another day you might see her serving everyone in her village 100 "massive and fiery" chicken drumsticks. Her catchphrase "massive and fiery" has become a running joke among Internet users.
Reception towards Grandma Tân and her videos are mixed. Some people think that her videos do not deserve that much spotlight - They are neither good songs nor great MVs. Some others, however, think that she is a great entertainer.
- Roughly translated: tạm dịch là
- Impressive feat: kì tích
- Massive and fiery: siêu cay khổng lồ
- Catchphrase: cụm từ lặp đi lặp lại, cụm từ hay nói của một người
