IELTS Speaking sample:
I’m going to talk about cooking which is a practical skill that we use almost every day.
It may sound strange as a lot of people learned how to cook when they were still teenagers. But to be honest, I hadn’t been able to cook until my grandma talked me into learning it, and I started to learn this skill with her just two months ago.
My grandma is very good at cooking and is the main cook in my family. She can cook many Vietnamese dishes, and her specialty is curry, which is also my favorite.
Honestly, I’m quite hopeless when it comes to cooking. It took me around 2 weeks to use the knife properly and make a sunny-side-up egg. However, I made good progress. I learned some basic cooking practices, and now I can cook some simple dishes such as some kinds of soup, omelette and fried rice. Sadly, due to my busy work schedule, I can only practice cooking with my grandma on weekends when we prepare meals for my family.
I used to think that cooking is kind of a burden, and there are plenty of places where we can buy food. But now, I completely changed my mind. I find that learning how to cook is extremely useful, as this skill is extremely beneficial to our life. Cooking by ourselves allows us to have better control of our nutrition, which is essential to maintaining a balanced diet and staying healthy.

IELTS Speaking Part 3 Sample
What skills are important for a businessperson to succeed?
Gợi ý: planning skills (kỹ năng lên kế hoạch), teamwork skills (kỹ năng làm việc nhóm), collaborate (cộng tác, phối hợp), productivity (năng suất)
First, managers are required to have excellent planning skills, which help companies to set their goals and make plans to achieve these goals. On the other hand, good teamwork skills of employees are another contributor to the success of an organization. Only when workers in a company collaborate effectively with each other will work productivity increase significantly.
What is the difference between required skills in the past and those at present?
Gợi ý: time (thời đại), Stone Age (thời kỳ đồ đá), survive (sống sót), industrial revolution (cuộc cách mạng công nghiệp), mechanical skills (kỹ năng về cơ khí), human interaction (sự tương tác giữa người với người), interpersonal skills (kỹ năng xã hội
In different times, people are required to have different sets of skills.
During the Stone Age, people needed skills such as hunting or food-gathering to survive in the harsh living condition.
After the industrial revolution, workers were expected to work in factories and handle machines, so mechanical skills were the most essential skills during this period.
Nowadays, I think because human interaction and cooperation are highly promoted in the world of business, people place greater importance on interpersonal skills.
What kinds of skills should successful people have?
Gợi ý: expertise (chuyên môn), technical skills (kỹ năng kỹ thuật), communication skills (kỹ năng giao tiếp), build relationships (xây dựng các mối quan hệ), increase productivity (tăng năng suất)
The most important skill is having higher level of expertise. Without the technical skills to perform their tasks, other soft skills are just meaningless. Another skill that plays a significant role in achieving success is communication skills. When working, workers need to collaborate with their customers, managers and coworkers, so having good communication skills enables employees to build good relationships and increase their productivity.
