ANSWER
I would like to describe a person who I had to be friendly to, although I did not really like her. I think
this situation is quite common in our lives, especially when we have to act as part of a team.
A couple of months ago, I was assigned to a team at my workplace in order to tackle a big project. As
part of the team, I had to cooperate closely with this person. However, we had never really liked each
other for several reasons. Firstly, she is much older than I am, so she always thinks she is right and
Written by Ngoc Bach
Page: https://www.facebook.com/tuhocIelts8.0
Website: www.ngocbach.com

Page 4


disregards the opinions of others. I would describe her as both bossy and officious, although she did
not have a more senior position than I did in the company. Secondly, I considered her irresponsible
because she did not appear to me to pay serious attention to the project.

So, although it was

supposedly a group project, I ended up working all on my own as much as possible in order to see the
task through.
As the work was vital for our company, we had to be successful. I therefore had no choice except to
collaborate with her in order to finish the job. I would rather have done all the work alone, but if I had
refused to work with her as part of the team, then the evaluation of my job performance would have
been affected at the end of the year. So, knowing her personality as I did, I swallowed my pride and
tried to be patient.
Despite our many arguments, we completed the task on time. I learned that sometimes people can work
together, even though they don‟t get on with each other. It just needs a little bit of time and patience to
work things out, and each person has to compromise to achieve a common goal.

2. Describe an ambition that you have not yet achieved.
You should say:
What your ambition is: One of my ambitions that I have not yet achieved is to be able to communicate
in Japanese.

When you first had this ambition (or, how long you have had this ambition): I just thought about this
idea a year ago because I realized that nowadays, knowing more foreign languages is an advantage
not only in our daily lives but also in work environments.

How you plan to achieve it: In order to achieve this, I registered for a Japanese class for beginners,
twice a week. I also downloaded an application on my iPhone which helps people study foreign
languages named Duolingo, so that I can study on my own at home. For the first two months, I did not
skip any classes, and spent at least 30 minutes every night studying Japanese on Duolingo at home.

(Possibly) what you have done towards achieving this ambition and explain why you have not
achieved it yet: Unfortunately, I could not keep up with the schedule for long since I was working full
time, not to mention that I had many other social activities that distracted me from studying. There
were days when I was so busy that I had to work overtime to finish my job. As a result, I wasn‟t able to
go to class and I definitely didn‟t have any time to study at home. Moreover, my friends complained
that I had been ignoring them, so I needed to arrange time to hang out with them. Just like that, I
gradually lost my ambition to study Japanese and until now, I can only remember one alphabet table,
even though Japanese uses three types of alphabets.

has been on my wish list for a long time is a one-bedroom apartment of my own.
when you would like to ( = want to / hope to) buy it: I hope to cross this item off my list by the time I

do whatever I want without interfering in my parents‟ lives. I can invite my friends over for the

 never-ending - used to describe something that seems to never end or have an ending. “She had

4. Describe an exciting sport you know.
You should say:

What sport it is: Of all the different types of sports, I am interested in figure skating the most.

How you know about it: I first learned about figure skating when I watched an Olympic competition in
2012. I found this sport very interesting.
How difficult you think it is: I don‟t think that figure skating is a sport for everybody since it requires
great balancing skills. In addition, the person has to be very flexible and courageous when doing this
sport.
And explain why you think it is exciting: Coming from a tropical country, I don‟t get to experience ice
and snow, thus, figure skating was new to me. Watching the athlete‟s elegant performance on ice
amazed me. I couldn‟t imagine how people could do such things since just walking with ice skates is
so difficult. These athletes danced on ice without even tripping. They must have spent a great deal of
time practicing and preparing for their performances. Also, I found it very beautiful, as their costumes
were so elegant. I even enjoyed the background music they used during the performances. In
comparison to other sports, figure skating is an amazing feast for both the eyes and the ears.

VOCABULARY
 to be interested in - to like or to enjoy. “She is interested in figure skating and he is interested in
soccer.”
 I found this sport to be very interesting - I thought this sport was very interesting. “He found
the work to be too easy for him.”
 it requires - something that needs to be done. In this sentence it means that figure skating can
only be done by people who have good balance, and not everyone does. It‟s something
necessary to have to do well at figure skating. “This job requires you to work 60 hours per
week.”

 flexible - in this context it means that the person can do many things with his/her body, like
putting your foot above your head while you are skating. “Yoga teachers are very flexible and
can get themselves into all kinds of crazy positions.”
 courageous - brave. In this case you have to be brave to be a figure skater because it can be
dangerous. “The mountaineers are courageous for climbing so high.”
 elegant performance - describing the performance as elegant means that you thought it was
very beautiful or gorgeous; it was pleasingly graceful and stylish in appearance or manner. “The
dancers gave an elegant performance this evening.”
 amazed me - surprised or shocked me. In this case it was incredible to see the skaters do such
things. “It amazed me that he received a 9 on his first IELTS exam.”
 to trip - to fall down while you are walking or running or doing something else like dancing or
skating. “She tripped and hit her head on the table. Ouch!”
 a feast for the eyes and ears - something pleasant to watch and listen to. “The Taylor Swift
concert was a feast for the eyes and ears. It was incredible to watch the show and I love her
music.”

5. Describe a member of your family who you would like to work with.
You should say:
Who this person is: If I had a chance to choose a family member to work with, I‟d prefer to work with
my father.

Whether you have worked together before:

Although we have never worked together in a

professional working environment before, we have done a lot of housework and class assignments
together over the years.
What work you would like to do together: Since we share a common interest in finance, I‟d like to
work with him in the finance field. My father is an investment banker and I am currently working as a
financial management accountant.

Page 13


And explain why you would like to work with this person: I‟d like to work with my dad on an M&A
deal, because I know that I‟d gain a lot of technical knowledge from him. My dad is a very dedicated
and generous person and he is always willing to give guidance to young people like me. Most
importantly, however, is I know that I can trust him in doing business; he will watch my back and
enhance my skills. Though I know we would need to separate our personal and professional
relationships, I believe that my father is experienced enough to not let our relationship interfere with
any business deals.

VOCABULARY
 a professional working environment - used to describe the atmosphere or situation in which
you are working as a professional vs another type of environment or situation, like a personal

personal problems.”

6. Describe a foreign country you would like to go to. ( A country you have not been to

There are so many countries that I have not had a chance to go to, but one of those that I would like to
visit in my upcoming trip is Myanmar.

It is located in South East Asia. The country is like Thailand 25 years ago, before shopping malls, and
fastfood chains expanded in the country. Thus it remains rustic and traditional compared to the
modern world.

Page 15


The people here are said to be friendly; they are willing to go out of their way to show you around
and they are very keen on practicing their English skills. Myanmar is famous for its ancient city named
Bagan, with more than 3,000 temples which date back to the 11th century. I would particulary love to
see the Shwedagon Pagoda. It is considered to be the greatest and most sacred Buddhist temple in the
country. The entire structure, which dates back 2,500 years, is covered with hundreds of gold plates.

Since the country has just been opened up to the outside world, it still keeps the originality of its
culture. That‟s why I want to go there, to experience the country and the people before globalization
changes everything.

VOCABULARY

 fastfood chain: [noun] a network of restaurants like McDonald‟s, which you can find in many

Example: The teacher went out of her way to help the students, giving free classes before the
exams.

and to show them what is interesting.
Example: We were shown around the school by one of the students.

ANSWER:
I would like to share with you my impressions of a garden that I visited last summer, which was full of
colour and interest: Claude Monet‟s house and garden in Giverny, France.
As a big fan of Monet‟s paintings, especially the famous „Water Lilies‟, I had always dreamed of
seeing the scene in real life. So, when some friends suggested a visit last year, I jumped at the
chance. After a journey of about an hour by train from our hotel, we arrived at Giverny. The garden
was exactly as he had painted it – it was a riot of colour, from the peaceful white of the water lilies to
the striking reds and oranges which filled some of the flowerbeds.
The two parts of the garden complemented each other perfectly. We first admired the array of
bright flowers and fruit trees in the Clos Normand, but my favourite part was the water garden, and we
enjoyed a leisurely stroll, taking in all the colours, perfumes and bird songs. Monet avidly collected

Page 18


prints of Japanese gardens, and these inspired the Japanese bridges covered with wisterias, the water
lilies in the pond, and the bamboo and weeping willows which he planted.
For me, it was like a wonderland of colours and a dream come true after so many years.

VOCABULARY
 impression: feeling or feelings (in the plural) about the garden (impressions) “His impression
of the meeting was that it didn‟t go very well.”
 fan: although the word is often used in the context of football nowadays, here it means a

 jumped at the chance: I enthusiastically accepted the opportunity to visit the garden. “He
jumped at the chance to go to Las Vegas with his boss.”
 a riot of colour: a collection of many different colours. “Sandra‟s rose garden is a riot of
colour.”
 striking: very attractive and unusual. “The woman he was with was wearing a striking outfit

 flowerbeds: a piece of a garden or park in which flowers are grown. “He loves digging in his
flowerbeds.”
 complemented each other: each part of the garden added something different to the other part,
so that the garden as a whole became more attractive. “The wine and the fish complemented
each other to form a perfect meal.”
 the array of bright flowers: the large and impressive collection of flowers. “The array of bright
flowers in her garden surprised everybody. They didn‟t realize she had planted so many
varieties.”
