IELTS Speaking sample
I’ll tell you about the time I was really annoyed by the terrible and repulsive music which was played at a music competition in a café near Hoan Kiem lake.
So, a couple of months ago my friend invited me to a rap competition held among university students called FB. At first, I didn’t really want to go because I’m not really into rap. Then my friend told me that the competition’s gonna be held in Snoboo Café – one of my favorite places to chill – so I changed my mind. He also said the drinks are on him so yeah, another reason not to refuse. After all, it’s just a music competition. What could possibly go wrong, right?
I was dead wrong. When I saw the first few performances, I immediately regretted my decisions... Although the beat and melody used for the songs weren’t terrible, some of them even sound catchy, I was extremely annoyed by the edgy lyrics written by some of the candidates. They’re full of swear words and offensive lines which, besides having basic rhymes, serve no purpose whatsoever. Besides, the sound quality was frequently distorted, which created a very unpleasant metallic sound. Apparently, the musical instruments weren’t well set up by the competition organizer.
The only reason why I didn’t leave the cafes immediately was because the drinks and snacks they serve taste phenomenal. The staff there was also observant and helpful. But of course, it wasn’t enough to make the experience more enjoyable.

IELTS Speaking Part 3 Sample
Câu hỏi: Why do many young people spend a lot of money on music concerts?
Gợi ý: meet idols in person (gặp thần thượng ngoài đời), ask for an autograph (xin chữ ký), take picture, more exhilarating (vui nhộn, phấn khích hơn), like-minded crowd (đám đông cùng sở thích, chí hướng), evoke excitement (khơi dậy sự thích thú, phấn khởi), once-in-a-lifetime experience (kinh nghiệm để đời)
Well, a concert ticket may cost someone a fortune but some people still spend money on it. I think the reason is that they just want to have a chance to meet their idols in person and if they’re lucky, they can ask for an autograph or take a picture with their favorite celebrity. Also, being in a concert is much more exhilarating since the cheer of a like-minded crowd can evoke excitement. If I had earned much money 5 years ago, I would have attended a music concert in Korea. To me, it’s well worth it to pay money and get a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Câu hỏi: Do you think older people like the same music as young people?
Gợi ý: different generations have own taste of music (mỗi thế hệ có gu âm nhạc riêng), classical or soothing music (nhạc cổ điển nhẹ nhàng), fast tempo and catchy tunes (nhịp độ nhanh và giai điệu bắt tai)
That’s not what I think, to be honest. In fact, people of different generations have their own taste of music. Old people tend to like classical or soothing music while their children are more into pop and rock songs with fast tempo and catchy tunes. Also, you know, there are always changes in the music industry. Even though many new kinds of music are released and become instantly popular among youngsters, some old people still only prefer music they can relate to and have grown up with.
Câu hỏi: Do you think music concerts are suitable for old people to attend?
Gợi ý: crowded and noisy places (nơi đông đúc và ồn ào), prefer enjoying it alone (muốn tận hưởng không gian một mình), passion for music (đam mê âm nhạc)
I think it depends on the kind of concert we're talking about, but mostly no. Old people, at least the ones I know, don't like crowded and noisy places like a concert. They may like music, but I think they prefer enjoying it alone or just with a couple of friends. That said, if the elderly still find their passion for music, they can absolutely attend live gigs.
Câu hỏi: Why do shopping malls often have background music?
Gợi ý: increase enjoyment and help them have a sense of relaxation (tăng sự thích thú và giúp khách hàng có cảm giác thư giãn), draw attention (gây sự chú ý)
Well, many people would love to enjoy music while shopping as it can increase enjoyment and help them have a sense of relaxation. Also, music can draw people's attention. That's what I think.
