IELTS Speaking sample
I’ve always wanted to lose weight. My current weight is 70 kg while I am only 155 cm tall. I am considered an obese person and I suffer from a lot of body shaming. I want to lose at least 20 kg but it’s never a piece of cake for me because I’m always hungry and I cannot have much time for exercising since my job requires me to sit in a place and work with a computer all day. I manage to wake up at the crack of dawn and spend 30 minutes running. Besides, I cut off the starch in my diet and choose low-carb food such as chicken breast and leafy green veggies. I know that being overweight is bad for my health and if I am not determined to get a weight loss, I may get some more serious illnesses such as high blood pressure or heart attack in the future. I used to be a couch potato before, but now I spend most of my free time at the gym. I even spend a big amount of money hiring a private coach so that he will have more intensive advice for me in losing weight and keep an eye on my daily workout. I’m trying to cut off the sugar too but it’s quite hard for me because I love sweet food. This is really the hardest thing in my life and hopefully I can make it. If I lose weight successfully, I will inspire people to adopt a healthy lifestyle. I always dream of the day when I have a fit body so that I can wear beautiful dresses and fashionable items that currently don't fit me well.

IELTS Speaking Part 3 Sample
Câu hỏi: In your country, how is success deﬁned or measured?
I think it’s common in my country that success is measured based on how much money people earn. If a person has a lot of money and properties, he is definitely considered a successful person. I think there are no differences in other countries. When you search for the list of the most successful people in the world, the results you get are likely to be the names of rich businessmen.
Câu hỏi: What goals do most people in your country have in life?
Gợi ý: worry-free (không lo lắng), latest technology inventions (phát minh công nghệ mới nhất), through thick and thin (qua mọi khó khăn, vất vả)
I think every Vietnamese person shares the same aim, which is to get a high-paying job and a partner. Good salary helps them to have a comfortable and worry-free life. They can go shopping, buy a house to live or get access to the latest technology inventions. Whereas, finding their true love will be helpful for mental health. They have someone to take care of and be with them through thick and thin.
Câu hỏi: How can people reach these goals?
Gợi ý: fate (định mệnh), start a conversation with someone of the opposite sex (bắt chuyện với người khác giới)
Well, the only way to get a well-paid job is to work hard. Regardless of your family financial background and academic achievement, if you try hard to improve yourself day by day, you will definitely become better at what you do and this helps you to have a good salary. Finding the right partner depends more on fate, I suppose. Just go to a crowded place and start a conversation with someone of the opposite sex.
Câu hỏi: Is there a lot of competition with others trying to achieve the same goals?
Gợi ý: find a light in the darkness (tìm được điều tốt/ tích cực trong lúc khó khăn)
Yes, there is. That’s why people always have a lot of pressure in their life and they have to try hard continuously. The person who makes no effort or who gives up even before trying has no chance to succeed. Whereas, successful people are those who are not afraid of taking risks and always find a light in the darkness.
