IELTS Speaking sample
I would like to talk about my recent trip to Ba Den pagoda, which was an experience that I always remember due to the massive amount of visitors that I encountered while I was there.
So usually, during Tet holiday, my family often drives to Tay Ninh province to visit my grandfather and last year we decided to take a short trip to Ba Den pagoda on Ba Den Mountain.
Before getting on the cable car to go up to the pagoda, I thought that maybe there might be a lot of Buddhist worshippers up there, as this sacred place tends to attract countless visitors all year round, let alone during Tet, which is the biggest holiday in Vietnam. And, I was right. There were people with flowers and candles everywhere. On one corner, lines of people were trying to light their incense sticks, and inside the pagoda many people were kneeling and praying with their eyes closed. It was pretty hard for us to even find any room to stand.
But, in the end, we successfully managed to find a way through the crowd and got close to the worshipping place, however my grandfather stayed outside as he can’t stand all the smoke and lack of oxygen.
Although I understand that most Vietnamese people enjoy going to pagodas and temples during these special days of the year to wish for good luck, and well-being and happiness, I really don’t think I’ll do that again anytime soon.

IELTS Speaking Part 3 Sample
Câu hỏi: Do people like to go to crowded places? Why?
(Gợi ý: introvert (người hướng nội) – suffocated (ngột ngạt))
It depends. Some may like it and some may not. But personally I don’t. As an introvert, I can’t help but feel suffocated whenever being in a crowded atmosphere. You know, it feels like my personal space is being invaded.
Câu hỏi: How can the problem of traffic congestion be solved?
(Gợi ý: renovating the public transportation system (cải tiến hệ thống giao thông công cộng), widening roads (mở rộng đường phố)
First, we can start with renovating the public transportation system to attract more passengers and reduce the number of vehicles on streets. Another solution is the government widening roads, but this would cost a lot of public money.
Câu hỏi: What public facilities does your city have?
There are plenty! From schools, healthcare centers or hospitals, universities to public transport and so on. Although Vietnam is still a developing country, I believe that the government is trying their best to make everything better.
