Describe an ambition that you have had for a long time
You should say:
What it is
What you did for it
When you can achieve it
And explain why you have this ambition
IELTS Speaking sample:
To tell the truth, I have always dreamed of becoming a female leader in the near future. My real model is Mrs. Ha who is now the president of the Vietnam Women’s Union. Well, I have a really strong desire to become a person like her.
As for the reason why I have this ambition, you know, during my whole life, I have seen many Vietnamese women who were the victims of child marriage and domestic violence. You see, despite many accomplishments in striving for gender equality and protecting women’s rights, there is still not enough development of females in modern society. That’s why I want to become a leader and give my great contribution.
Honestly, it’s not easy to become what I desire. As you know, a leader needs to be not only talented but also dedicated and determined, and on top of that, it’s their leadership skills that really matter. To cultivate those skills, I’m now trying to study and engage in various charitable work and campaigns to help eradicate women's illiteracy and support those who live in poverty. Also, I’m applying to work for a new project which raises funds to support opening career centers for women. This center will specialize in providing job training for women, ranging from solf skills to short courses about running a small business.
It will be a long journey ahead but I believe in myself. I will keep trying my best to make my dream come true.

IELTS Speaking Part 3 Sample
What kinds of ambitions do people have?
Gợi ý: desire for success and happiness in life (mong muốn thành công và hạnh phúc trong cuộc sống), a steady and well-paid job (một công việc ổn định và lương cao), an ideal family (một gia đình lý tưởng)
Well, it really depends, but for the most part, people tend to have a desire for success and happiness in life. To be more precise, a steady and well-paid job and an ideal family is always the thing that everyone strives for. Actually, whatever they dream of, it’s all about having a better life.
Why should parents encourage children to have ambitions?
Gợi ý: a source of motivation (một nguồn động lực), move forward and try their best (tiến lên và cố gắng hết sức), a strong wish to do something (một mong muốn mạnh mẽ để làm điều gì đó)
To me, ambitions can be seen as a source of motivation which encourages people to move forward and try their best to achieve them. As for children who can be more likely to give up, it appears to be more crucial that they need a strong wish to do something. Therefore, parents can help by guiding them in setting their own goal and support them to achieve it.
Should parents interfere with their children's ambitions?
Gợi ý: not mature enough (không đủ trưởng thành), lead the right direction (chỉ dẫn đúng hướng), give support (hỗ trợ), not becoming a hurdle (không trở thành một trở ngại)
Parents need to interfere, but only in certain cases. I mean, kids are not mature enough to make their own decisions about what they should and should not do, so parents’ role is to lead the right direction and give children support when they need, but not becoming a hurdle to their children’s ambition. Children may make mistakes sometimes but then they can learn from it and become stronger.
Is there any difference between children's ambitions and those of grown-ups?
Gợi ý: Children have smaller and short-term desires (trẻ em có những mong muốn nhỏ hơn và ngắn hạn), more ambitious with long-term goals (tham vọng hơn với nhiều mục tiêu dài hạn)
Sure there is. You know, people’s ambitions are not the same at different stages of life, obviously. Children tend to have smaller and short-term desires, mostly the things that interest them, like to have new toys or win a school competition. However, when people grow up, they become more ambitious with long-term goals from money, power to success and happiness in life.
