IELTS Speaking sample:
Today I’d like to talk about the time I helped my grandfather fix his computer.
When I was in grade 7, I still lived under the same roof with my grandparents because my middle school was close to their house. I have always been a technophile because my dad, who is the closest one to me in the family, has a passion for technology and technological devices. One time, during summer, my parents went on a business trip together so I stayed home with my grandparents.
At that time, my grandfather wanted to borrow my laptop to write an email to his university professor who he had lost contact with for a long time. My grandpa struggled right from the beginning! At first, he didn’t know how to turn the laptop on because he had never used it before so he called me for help. Then, I decided to stick around for a bit longer to support him all the way. Then, his weak eyesight prevented him from seeing the keyboard clearly so I was the one who typed the entire letter while he was reading his message out loud.
Needless to say, he was really pleased and even bought me my favorite book back then. Now, I have moved out and have little chance to visit my grandparents regularly. I will definitely visit them this Tet holiday and spend more time with them.

IELTS Speaking Part 3 Sample
What can children help parents with?
(Gợi ý : do household chores (làm việc nhà), be independent and take good care of themselves (tự lập và tự chăm sóc bản thân)
There are many things children can do like helping with simple household chores like washing dishes or wiping the floor. Besides, children can learn to think and act independently and take good care of themselves so that their parents could be less worried about them.
Should parents reward their children when they help others?
(Gợi ý: sentimental rewards (phần thưởng tinh thần) > financial rewards (phần thưởng tiền bạc))
Oh certainly. Children should be reminded and encouraged to show actions or gestures of goodwill for being kind-hearted is one of the best qualities that anyone could have. However, parents should give their children sentimental rewards rather than financial ones because obviously, giving them money could make them feel like they are doing good for money.
Do parents help children because they need their children to help them when they are old?
(Gợi ý : no – out of pure love (từ lòng yêu thương thuần khiết))
I think it’s silly to think that way. Parents simply help and take care of their children out of pure love. Normally, parents wouldn’t expect to receive anything from their kids because they mostly care about showing affection to their children.
