I’m going to talk about my ideal place to relax and also a famous tourist attraction in
Vietnam, Sapa. Among various reasons, i love Sapa simply ‘cause of people there. They
are warm, kind hearted and trustworthy. I remember that summer when my family decided
to have a holiday in Sapa, we came into trouble ‘cause it was a tourist season and we ran
out of hotels. Fortuanately, we were put in by a local person for a night and she found a
hotel nearby for us the following morning.

Besides people. i found in Sapa many

a chance to see in textbooks and on TV. Therefore, I see Sapa as a beautiful and peaceful
place for me to refresh myself and recharge my battery after an assiduous semester.
Anyway, i will come back to Sapa next summer for sure.

2. Describe a gift for others that took you long time to choose

And explain why you spend long time choosing it

Well, now, i’m going to talk about a special gift that i took a lot of time to find and choose.
That gift was for my Maths teacher at my secondary school, who i admired and considered
as my second mother. My teacher was born in September, but i had to think of what the gift
was from July. Fortunately, it coincided with my summer holiday in Sapa. I immediately
went shopping to look for some special things when I reached there. Unfortunately, there
are a variety of products and I also do not know about my teacher’s hobby. Therefore,
finding a suitable job for her is extremely a challenge for me. After 2 days with careful
considerations, i decided to buy a scarf made from brocade fabric. It was sophisticated
and unique. I crushed on that scarf at the first sight. I was satisfied because at least, i had
tried to find a meaningful gift for my beloved teacher. And she seemed to love it a lot.

3. Describe a change that will improve your local area
-

What the change is

-

How the change works

-

What kinds of problems the change will solve

-

How you feel about the change.

If there is a chance to change something which makes our local area better, i think it’s the
small library.
The standard knowledge about social issues of local people is quite low. I will give you a
prominent instance about my cousin. She was the same age as me and she just married last
week ‘cause she had 5 month pregnancy. But the thing was she didn’t know she was
pregnant until 2 weeks ago.
Apparently, she was lack of sexual knowledge and I think that if only my hometown had a
library in which there was a wide range of books , she wouldn’t have come into troubles.
Also with a small library, people at all ages can equip themselves with a reservoir of
knowledge about all aspects of life. I’m sure that this change is a significant turing-point
in the education of my local area. For example, the literacy rate can be higher, so my
province can provide a better well-educated workforce for economy, and uemployment
level or other social evils can be mitigated. All in all, the appearance of a library is the key
to open a new door for my province.


standard knowledge: kiến thức chung



social issue: vấn đề xã hội



5 month pragnancy: có thai 5 tháng



a wide range of: nhiều



come into troubles: Gặp khó khăn

 turing-point : bước ngoặt

still I look at it with a delight and sadness. The photograph is a black-and-white one and
later I have enlarged it and framed it in my living room. The small kid (me), the
grandparents and young parents make the picture a really significant one to me. I look
with amazement in to the picture and sometimes can't believe I was so small and different
looking at that time The picture gives me a gloomy feelings as my grandfather and mother
are no longer with us. In the picture they seems so lively but I can't be with them anymore!
This photograph is probably is my most favourite one as it conveys my grandparents'
memory and depicts a happy family. Every time I look at this particular picture, it gives a
different sensation - mixture of happiness and sadness. This is a priceless possession to me
and I would like to keep it with me for the rest of my life.

Well, two months ago,I thought that summer was coming,so I needed to do something to
lose weight. I saw an advertisement and intended to take some diet pills.The advertisement
boosted how magical the drugs are. As I was urged to lose weight,without thinking,I
decided to buy some .However, my roommate didn’t recommend me to do that. She said
the slimming pills not only cost a lot but also are detrimental to health. She asked me to
keep diet and jogging with her every night.
I thought it was fine to just have a try. If this plan back fired, I would try another way to
lose weight such as running or eating fruits instead of meals.
After taking slimming pills for a week, I didn’t have weight lose, but became insomnic,
maybe that’s a side effect of the drugs. Finally I gave up and running with my roommate
everyday. Now when I ‘m thinking about this argument ,I really thank to my friend,
otherwise I would try this stupid idea for two weeks or even longer.

and each floor has its own function. The first floor is the main hall, it’s sometimes used for
some conferences. The second one is a computer lab. The third and fourth floor are used
for self-studying. The library opens every day except on Sundays and i go to my “little
corner studying” 5 days a week. I love that place ‘cause it’s outright quiet. All students
focus on their work and noone or nothing disturbs me, so the studying is really useful and
effective. I have one year left before i graduate from my school and i think that library will
be my indispensable partner of mine.

I’d like to talk about a team project that I was involved in during my final term at business
school. There were four of us on the team, and our task was to work with a local company
to research a new market, in a European country, for one of their products or services.
Our objective was to produce a report and give a presentation.
The first thing we did was split into two groups of two. We had been assigned a company
that produced a range of bicycle accessories, so two of us spent some time getting to know

the company while the other two researched the market and the competitors in the target
country, which was Germany. In the end, I think it was a successful project because we
managed to identify a possible gap in the market in Germany for one of the company’s
products. Our group presentation also went really well.
Until that point, the course had been all about business theory, so it was quite a learning
experience to work with a real company. I felt a real sense of accomplishment when we
handed in our report and delivered our presentation, and I think all of us were proud of
what we had done.

As a child I enjoyed playing chess. I think chess is probably the best known board game in
the world. It’s a game for two players, and the aim is to defeat the other player by taking
his or her pieces and eventually trapping his King. This final move is called checkmate.
I taught my younger brother to play, and at some point I joined the school chess club.
There I had the chance to hone my skills against some of the older pupils, and in my final

and we competed against children from other primary schools in the same town.
I liked playing chess because I enjoyed the challenge of thinking ahead and trying to
outwit my opponent. I was probably seven or eight years old when I started playing, and it
seemed like a very mysterious and intellectual game at that time. Also, although I loved
winning, chess taught me to learn from my losses and to congratulate the person who had
beaten me.

barriers, she always used English all the time. She helped me improve my ability to give a

morning to prepare for the exam. Actually, i’m a morning bird, so i found it easy to get up
early. Fresh air and tranquility in the morning made me feel peaceful, optimistic and
creative, so I could concentrate more on my study. But at that time, i had to try to wake up
earlier, exactly at 3 or 4 am. As a result, i was totally exhausted and had a headache. My
brain was full of subjects such as Maths, History, Literature and so on. Besides, i was so
sleepy that at times, i slept while i was trying to memorize historic dates or Maths formulas.
I had to drink coffee many times a day to keep me wide awake. It was exactly a nightmare
but fortunately, i passed the exam with flying colors.

well. i met a lot of foreigners there. At that time, i just could say “hello” to them and i
wished that one day, i would communicate with them in English fluently. Secondly, i
learned a lot of lessons about environment and animals. They were different from what i
was taught at school. It was more interesting, lively and practical. I saw some endangered
animals like tigers, black rhinos, mountain gorillas, Asian elephants...It’s been a long time

Well, watching TV is not my cup of tea. However, i’m keen on watching international news
as well as current affairs. So, at times, i turn on TV to watch CNN.
It is a program which specializes in breaking news reported by many jounalists and
correspondents all over the world. It’s a good idea to combine watching news and learning
English at the same time. I not only update a lot of information happening on Earth during
24 hours but also gain vocabularies and practise listening English and so on.
Watching CNN is my daily routine. I watch this program every morning for about 15 to 20
minutes before I go to school.
I find CNN educational and informative, especially for students like me simply because as
i’ve mentioned, it broadens our horizons, enriches our knowledge and we can deeply
understand what’s going on in our society.

During my freshman year, except my course work I still have abundant time. So I decided
to do some part-time jobs to earn my tuition fee.
Honestly, it was really hard for me to find something to do at first because there were not
many things for freshmen to do. What was fortune, I got a job in a cosmetic shop. I was
allocated to clean the shelves which was a really dirty job. Because I was a green hand
firstly, I got blamed by my senior manager when I took shifts four out of five times. I was
so sad and crying every day when I was on my way back to my dorm. However, despite of
sadness and tiredness, I insisted until the end. I wanted to release my parents’ burden so
I didn’t want to ask them for living cost.
During this period, I did well and I got a precious chance to learn sales and stock. I have
to admit that thanks to the experience of this job, I obtained a lot of valuable knowledge
which I could not learn from university. Of course, I made so many friends who gave me
so much professional help and courage. Although the salary of this job was not very high,
the skills I learned were priceless. With the help of this working experience, I gain a

My favourite restaurant is in ……. The restaurant is on a busy street very near to a large
park. It is quite a small and hectic place called (tên nhà hàng)……because (tên) is the
name of the person who set up the business.
The outside the restaurant doesn’t look very impressive. It has large glass windows at the
front, and some benches outside for people to sit on if they are waiting to go in. There used
to be a large sign with the name of the restaurant written on it in big letters, but recently
they have taken down the sign and not yet replaced it! Inside there are lots of square
wooden tables, each with about four chairs around them.
The restaurant serves mainly breakfast and lunch meals. It does really good coffee – I like
their latte’s best – and lots of sandwiches, salads and special soups. However, when I go,
I always have the same thing – ……………., because that is what I like best!
The restaurant is very special to me and my friends because we meet there every Saturday.

Today I'd like to describe my home garden, which I think is a beautiful one and which I
like very much. The garden is part of my home's backyard, and my house is located in the
suburbs, about a 1-hour drive from the city of San Francisco. There is a big tree right in
the middle of my garden, which is surrounded by a hot tub, a small water fountain, several
bushes, a section for vegetables, and different kinds of flowers.
This garden was actually one of the reasons why my wife and I chose to buy our house
because it had been beautifully maintained by the previous owner’s gardener and

landscaper. It’s been only 1 year since we bought the house and now we are taking care of
the garden ourselves. Even though we are not experts in gardening, we still try our best to
plant things that we like, such as roses and tulips, and we even grow our own tomatoes.
Whenever family and friends come to visit us, we invite them to have a relaxing time in our
hot tub, and enjoy the view. So in other words, our garden has also become a kind of resort!
It definitely requires lots of hard work to properly maintain the garden, but it gives us a
great sense of accomplishment to “decorate” it the way we like.
All in all, the garden is one of the best features of my home and it is a place where I can
relax after a long day of work or during the weekends.

Let me tell you about the challenging person I had to deal with when I was doing a project
for one of my clients last year in my client’s office. He was the manager of that company.
After we co-worked for a couple of days, I found that he had a caustic style and often spoke

in a pejorative way. Even worse, the manager was standoffish and quick to criticise. He
even withheld critical information from our project team.
However, though I was really frustrated by him and didn’t personally like him, I tried hard
to face it. I had to get along well with this guy because how I managed those relationships
could be vital to my careers and I needed his participation to be successful in this project.
Therefore, in the following days, I sometimes took him out to dinner and asked him to talk
about some of the projects he had heard about, and surprisingly, he was willing to share
with me his teamwork. In the end, the late evenings were always filled with collaboration,
shared success and accomplishment.
He was much more cooperative when some of colleagues in our team asked for his
viewpoint and acknowledged his expertise. And I had a much easier time working with him
25. Describe a special toy you had in your childhood
You should say:
-

what it was

-

who gave it to you

-

how often you played it

-

and explain why it was special to you

One special toy that I remember getting was a Lego car. It was a birthday present from my
parents. I can't remember exactly how old I was, but I was probably about 10 or 11.
The special thing about this car was that I had to build it myself out of hundreds of pieces
of Lego. The pieces came in a box with a picture of the finished car on the front, and I had
to follow step-by-step instructions to put all the pieces together in the correct way. This
wasn't an easy task because the car even had an engine, movable seats and gears. It took
me a day or two to make, and required a lot of concentration.

When the car was finished it looked great, and I felt a sense of accomplishment. I seem to
remember that I didn't play with the car very much; the fun part had been the process of
building it.
26. Describe a childhood song you remember well.
You should say:
-

where you first heard this song;

-

how old you were when you first heard it

-

what it was about;

-

and explain how you feel now when you hear this song

My mother often sang me a lullaby titled ‘Oh my sweet angel look the Moon has come to
play with you…” in my bed time and I have heard it so many times in my childhood that I
can still remember it very vividly. This was a song usually famous in the rural area of our
country that mothers often use to soothe the baby and to send them in sleep. It was an 810 lines song with great harmony and the way my mother sand it was extraordinary. It still
echoes in my head and I miss those days.
I can remember my mother often sand this song till I got admitted in the school and I heard
it from my father as well in my bed time. I was pretty touched with the lyrics and in my
childhood I often imagined that the verses used in this song were true and would happen
to me as well.
We often remember things from childhood specially the stories or songs we hear with great
enthusiasm. This song was no exceptions. I heard it hundreds of times and as a child I
fanaticized those things to be true. Thais is the main reason I still remember it. May be
someday when I will become a father/ mother, I will sing thins song to my children as well.
This has in fact become a permanent memory and I still love the great and calming piece
of music.

I was then only 7-8 years old and when I saw a little angel was crying on my mother's lap,
I became the happiest girl in the world. I was the only daughter of my parents and when I
heard that I will have another sibling, I got very excited and I was counting days when this
brother of mine will come. I speculated and imagined lots of things I would do with my
sibling. On the day that my sister came in to the world was one of the happiest days of my
life.
For the first time I felt a strong urge to kiss this little fairy child. He was so beautiful and
adorable that I thanked God for the gift. My mother asked me to hold him and kiss him but
I was afraid to touch her as I thought that might hurt him. I felt like I was flying on that
day. I stayed in the hospital room for about 4-5 days till my mother and sister came home.
I came back home with the most precious gift of the world.
29. Describe an exciting sport you know
You should say:

how you know about it -is it difficult?

-

explain why you think it is exciting

Of all the sports that I more or less know how to play, swimming is the one that I find most
fascinating and I think it can strengthen my physical health.. I learnt to swim when I was
a small child because my parents believed that it would be useful for me.
Unlike other sports, there are no rules to follow when you swim. Basically, swimming is
just the combination of arm and leg motions and the natural floatation of the body.
In order to swim, there must be a swimming pool or a body of water large enough. Most
pools, however, would require individuals to wear swimming costume in order to be able
to use the pool. Some swimmers find it also useful to wear goggles and swim cap to keep

water out of their eyes and their hair for fear that swimming pool water contains many
harmful chemicals.
Swimming as an exercise is popular as an all-around body developer and is particularly
useful in therapy and as exercise for physically handicapped persons. It is also taught for
lifesaving purposes.
The main thing that fascinates me about this sport is the weightless freedom and liberation
I feel when I swim. It feels just like flying. I cannot fly, but swimming is the next best thing.
The water is my sky.

I have a very strong passion for the ocean and one of the seaside places that I usually go
to on vacations is Nha Trang, a small lovely beach town in the central of Vietnam. There
are always many activities for tourists to do in Nha Trang.
If you are a fan of extreme sports, you can do either windsurfing or paragliding. In case
you want to discover the nature, there are some amazing island cruises and snorkeling
tours. Nha Trang is also a paradise for seafood lovers with fresh, delicious, diverse and
inexpensive dishes.
To me, Nha Trang is such a vibrant town where there is always something going on. The
local people are so friendly and they make me feel welcome here. Most importantly, Nha
Trang has a breathtakingly stunning beach which has been recognized as one of the top
beaches in the world.

Among all the subjects that we studied in school, history is undoubted my least favorite.
This shouldn’t come as a surprise at all because most of the school children I know do not
like this subject. I guess there are several reasons explaining the unpopularity of history as
a school subject.
To begin with, history is arguably one of the most difficult subjects to learn. The major
part of it involves remembering dry facts such as names, numbers and events that happened
a long time ago in an effort to get a good grade. Hardly can these attract interest from young
people who are more concerned about things that are going on and generally don’t see
connections between past events and the present.
Besides, as much as I appreciate people’s effort to teach history to children, I’ve got to
admit that history classes are very boring. But when I was on grade 5, the teacher took us
on a trip to a museum in Ha Noi. She taught me about what the previous generation did to
protect our country agaist invaders via a lot of artifacts. That was the first time I felt so
interesting with this subject.
History helps us learn the mistakes of the past and avoid repeating them in the future.
Therefore, I really recommend that students should pay more attention to this subject, and
they will see it very interesting.
34. Describe a piece of good news you heard from TV or internet
You should say:

I’m going to talk about a fabulous news that I came across last week on the internet.
According to it, petrol price has decreased by 20%. This is the third reduction of oil price
in a row for the past few months and it immediately took over newspaper front pages.
