IELTS Speaking sample:
I’d like to talk about the area of science in which I’ve recently developed a particular interest. It is mental health.
If you asked me this question years ago, then mental health wouldn’t even be in the top 10 of the things I’d think of. You know, I was always a super-confident guy who didn’t have much difficulty getting what he wanted. I always thought of myself as someone full of positive energy, and thus immune to any kinds of mental illnesses. But I was wrong. At the end of last year, I went through the darkest period in my life, mostly because of the stumbling blocks I’ve encountered in my career, and a toxic relationship that had been ruining my self-esteem for more than 6 years. I felt as if everything was against me, and the worst part is that I didn’t have the guts to free myself.
It was at that moment that I realized the most frightening thing about depression. It doesn’t spare any victim. No one is 100% safe from it, no matter how glorious their career is or how many achievements they’ve got. Sometimes when we look at the Facebook page of a well-known celebrity, we don’t see any sign of negativity, let alone suicidal thoughts. We’d ask ourselves: What could possibly go wrong with this guy? He has everything so many others long for. He must be really happy with his life. While in reality, that person’s probably sitting alone in his room in sorrow, asking himself what’s his purpose in this life, and burying himself in the thought of death as an escape.
When I was aware of my own conditions, I tried everything I could to ease the excruciating pain I had to endure. I tried to reach out for help. Fortunately, some people noticed the problem I was having. They listened to me, gave me small useful advice, and eventually, I finally managed to pull it together, and escape from that living hell.
After barely surviving that nightmare, I started to seriously consider being a psychiatrist in the future, though of course I didn’t receive any proper training in this field. I guess I just want to save those who are going the same hell as I did, you know? I want to reach out for those broken souls, and remind them that We’re here, and we care for you. Because for someone who suffers from mental illnesses, nothing is more important than being loved.

Gợi ý: positive impacts (tác động tích cực), the advance of science (tiến bộ của khoa học), effective solutions to the challenges that humanity is facing (giải pháp hiệu quả cho các vấn đề mà nhân loại đang đối mặt), cure or treatment (việc chữa trị bệnh), renewable energy (năng lượng tái tạo)
Obviously, science has brought many positive impacts on people’s life. As we can see, thanks to the advance of science, there are always effective solutions to the challenges that humanity is facing. You know, from cure or treatment to serious health problems to the advent of renewable energy which helps reduce heavy pollution.
