IELTS Speaking sample
I’ve always considered myself as a free spirit. In the past, the idea of becoming a teacher never came across my mind, not even once.
When I was a high school student, I was so sick and tired of all the regulations and always saw most of my teachers under a lot of pressure and overloaded with work. I thought that I would never, not even in a million years, choose teaching in the future. My family, on the other hand, encouraged me to study pedagogy.
I still remembered, during a family dinner during my 12th school year, my dad suggested that I follow in my mother’s footsteps and become a teacher. I burst into laughter and thought it was a ridiculous idea. However, my dad still insisted on me giving it a try by tutoring his friend’s daughter. Well, I unwillingly followed his advice to try tutoring, knowing things wouldn’t work out.
After two months of tutoring, his friend’s daughter passed her final exams with flying colors. At that time, I also realised that I really enjoyed sharing my knowledge and encouraging others, not to mention the fact that I was even quite good at it!
You know, at the end of that year, I finally decided to pursue an education in English Pedagogy.

IELTS Speaking Part 3 Sample
1. On what occasions should we look for advice from other people?
(Gợi ý : buying a birthday present - a pity if giving them what they dislike)
I think when buying a birthday present, it is sensible to seek advice from the receiver because it would be a pity if we give them something they dislike on their birthday.
2. Are there any cases when we shouldn’t?
(Gợi ý : choosing loved ones-follow your gut)
At times, especially when choosing your partner. Although the people around you may or may not support your decisions, it’s best just to follow your guts.
3. Do you think we should believe in the advice given by famous people? Why?
(Gợi ý : career-related - trustworthy)
It really depends. I mean, if the advice is related to their career, it would be trustworthy because it would be full of insights. However, sometimes, they do try to sell a product by advising their followers to purchase it and that kind of advice is highly unreliable.
