IELTS Speaking sample
I’m going to talk about my grandma who I admire a lot.
Actually, she passed away a few years ago but she was a very inspiring person. My earliest memories of her are probably from when I was about 5 or 6 years old, because before that I didn’t live with my grandparents so I didn’t see them very often.
There are many reasons why I think she is very respectful. Firstly, she grew up in Australia during a time when men and women did not have equal rights, especially in terms of salary, and she used to work in a leather factory and she knew that she was good at her job, better than a lot of the men in the factory. So one day, she demanded that her boss pay her the same wage as her male colleagues because she was better than a lot of them. This was a brave thing to do and her boss gave her a raise. I think this is a good example of her personality actually. She was an honest and fair person. She worked hard and she expected to be paid fairly. She always really loved to live in old houses in the countryside and filled them with all sorts of antiques and lots of interesting gadgets, so it was quite fascinating for me and my brothers to visit her house when we were young. Secondly, my grandmother was a real individual. She loved to play video games even when she was 60 years old, and she used to ride a big motorcycle and she had some tattoos on her arms, which was very uncommon for a woman her age. But my brothers and I thought she was really cool. She was also a very talented artist as well. She painted many beautiful paintings, and learnt to play the piano when she was about 65. And because of these things, my grandmother is someone I really admire.

IELTS Speaking Part 3 Sample
Câu hỏi: How to take care of your grandparents? Who usually takes care of them?
Gợi ý: mental health (sức khỏe tinh thần), too sensitive (quá nhạy cảm)
Well, my grandparents are still healthy so they do not need much caretaking. But they live with my family and my parents take very good care of them. I believe the most important thing is to take care of their mental health, since old people are sometimes too sensitive. So every member in my family always tries to let them know that we love them and we will always be with them no matter how old they are.
