Concentration là một chủ đề tương đối khó trong bài thi Speaking. Thí sinh có thể gặp khó khăn về mặt từ vựng cũng như ý tưởng (vì đây là một chủ đề không phổ biến). Trong bài viết hôm nay, Vietop xin gửi đến các bạn một bài nói tham khảo cho chủ đề này nhé!
- When do you need to be focused?
That is when I have to complete a tough and time-consuming assignment. At that time, I have to be mentally alert and any distractor like a deafening noise can make my blood boil.
- Can you concentrate on work during the noise?
I simply can’t. I will be on the warpath if there is any ear-piercing noise disturbing me when I am concentrating on my work. I used to get a very low mark on my final exam just because of the noise of the construction work next to my school. It is hard to concentrate and once being distracted, I cannot bring back the flow of ideas.
- Is it difficult for you to stay focused on something?
Yes, it is very hard. I need a very silent and peaceful ambience to stay focused. At that time, I can work efficiently and easily come up with new ideas. I hate the noise of the surroundings but a very small volume of jazz also can boost my productivity.
- What do you do to help you concentrate?
I think jazz or piano melodies can enable me to stay focused. I think I can work more effectively when I listen to music while immersing myself in working.
- What is the best way to concentrate?
As I said before, music can be considered as the optimal measure that helps me stay focused. I can be an eager beaver when listening to my beloved songs. I reckon other people also share a certain similarity in the way of concentration.
- What may distract you when you are trying to stay focused?
I think it would be noises of flies buzzing around. It may leave a bad taste in my mouth and it may take me an hour to get into thestate of concentration.
- When is it hard to concentrate?
It is when people are getting stuck in a hectic pace of life. Like when I was in a hurry, it is nearly infeasible to stay completely focused on doing one certain thing, and at that moment, I also easily made wrong decisions.
- In what situation do you need to concentrate?
That was when I had a very tough and important assignment to deal with. After that period, I was often exhausted and need some days to put my feet up.
- What do you do to improve concentration?
Firstly, I will set an achievable goal and a small present that I can honor myself after completing the mission. Then I just put away all the unnecessary technological devices and turn off all notifications. Finally, all I need to do is rolling up my sleeves to hit the big time.
- Is it easy for you to do two things simultaneously?
Honestly, I am not a multitasking person who can do several different things simultaneously. I used to try to be multitasking but I failed. When trying this, I recorgnised that I was easier to make mistakes and completely ruined two projects of mine.
