IELTS Speaking Part 2 & 3 Topic History

Đề số 1

IELTS Speaking Part 2

Describe an important historical event.

  • What event it is

  • When it happened

  • Who or what was involved in it

And explain why you think it is an important historical event.

Bài mẫu tham khảo:

I would like to tell you about one of the most important past events in my country. That is the time when President Ho Chi Minh read the Declaration of Independence, establishing the Socialist Republic of Vietnam.

History lessons at school in Vietnam might be boring, and not so many students pay attention to their teachers’ words in history classes, but I’m sure there’s one thing about history that all students in Vietnam remember. That is the date of the day marking our freedom. September 2nd 1945 was a glorious day. Thousands of people gathered at the Ba Dinh Square to listen to the Declaration of Independence. 

You know, in the past, our country was invaded and colonized for a very long time by different nations, but we never forgot our traditions and customs, and always tried to fight the enemies to reclaim our independence. France colonized us for almost 100 years, feasting on our people’s blood and sweat. Most Vietnamese people back then were farmers. They were uneducated and had to bow to their inhumane landlords. Despite the great disadvantages, they were still able to unite and keep fighting bravely. Millions of them died, but their heroic actions live forever. And as you can guess, we finally took back our freedom. From that day up until now, every Vietnamese person has the right to proudly say that he or she is free. I mean, I’m truly grateful to all the soldiers who overcame great hardships and fought with their lives so that I can enjoy a better life now.

Từ vựng cần lưu ý:

  • Glorious: huy hoàng

  • Reclaim independence: giành lại độc lập

  • Inhumane: vô nhân đạo, dã man

  • Describe a time you enjoy an activity: I read some history books about the Vietnam war during my free time and I was really interested in this event.

  • Describe a subject you used to dislike but now are interested in: I used to hate history but after finding out about the Vietnam war, I changed my mind.

  • Describe a person you haven’t met but would like to know more about: Ho Chi Minh, or Uncle Ho, one of our greatest leaders in history who gave a declaration of independence speech, is someone I really want to know more about.

IELTS Speaking Part 3

Q1. How is history taught in Vietnam?

Gợi ý: Đọc và chép, ít hình ảnh, thiếu lôi cuốn, học sinh buồn ngủ, không nhớ được gì…

During all my years at school, my history teachers’ job was to read the whole text out loud and make sure that their students write everything down in their notebook. It’s really boring and tiresome!

Q2. Is there any difference between teaching history through books and movies?

Gợi ý

  • Dạy qua sách: Nhiều chữ, không hấp dẫn đối với trẻ em.

  • Dạy qua phim: Sống động, nhiều màu sắc, dễ tiếp thu hơn.

I’m glad you mentioned that. I’ve always dreamed of one day when history in my country is taught via movies and video documentaries. That way students might feel more excited and finally be able to pay attention to the knowledge they are learning in class. By presenting history in the form of images and videos, I believe history classes can achieve their original purpose – to teach history instead of lulling students to sleep.

Q3. Why are there many children who do not like to learn history?

Gợi ý: Sách lịch sử thiếu những câu chuyện hấp dẫn, quá nhiều chữ, ít hình ảnh. Cách dạy nhàm chán, đọc chép, không lôi cuốn.

There are two reasons in my opinion. The first reason is that most of them are not mature enough to feel interested in battles and wars that happened in the past. I mean, they are too young and are more keen on animated movies and video games. The second reason is the way that history is taught in most countries nowadays. I hold a strong belief that if schools change the way they teach history, things will be a lot different.

Đề số 2

IELTS Speaking Part 2

Describe a historical period that you are interested in.

You should say:

  • What the historical period is

  • How you know it

  • What happened during that period

  • Why you find it interesting

Bài mẫu tham khảo:

If I could go in a time machine, I would choose to go back to the glorious time of Hong Bang period in about 2000 BC, the very first days of my country.

At that time, this place wasn’t called Vietnam, it was under the rule of Hung Kings and was named Van Lang instead. What I find fascinating about this era is the legends and myths which I learned from History and Literature class back in school. Van Lang was a small country yet it was frequently
invaded by the mysterious people. Whenever this period of time is mentioned, people will immediately relate to hundreds of wars, some even last for decades. We, the descendants, had no idea how they could win in those wars due to the sparse population and simple weapons, so we made up stories and fables to honor the bravery of our ancestors. Some specific examples are the legend of a three-year-old boy who went to war to save the country, or the myth of the Magic Crossbow which could deliver thousands of arrows and the story of the princess innocently trusting her lover and betraying her father, and the list goes on.

Although some of the stories are imaginary, it left a mark on me and nurtured my love for my home country since I was a little girl. Moreover, many of modern Vietnamese cultural practices also date back to this era, like cooking sticky rice cakes and displaying five-fruit trays on Tet holiday. This era can be considered as the cradle of our culture. I am always curious about the origin of our customs, and I believe that going back to this time could provide me with first-hand experience as well as a thorough understanding of my country’s tradition.

Từ vựng cần lưu ý:

  • Glorious time: A time of greatness and prosperity.

  • Legends and myths: Traditional stories, usually historical and unauthenticated (possibly not true).

  • Cultural practice: an action committed by people of a particular culture, tradition or nationality.

IELTS Speaking Part 3

Q1. Do young people like historical stories in your country?

I am afraid not, since history is not taught very effectively here in Vietnam. Many of my friends aren’t keen on history, and most of them don’t even know some very common heroes in Vietnamese history, which is really a shame.

Q2. Which historical period do you think is important in your country?

I would say the Nguyen Dynasty, since it witnessed our country’s transition from the feudal age to the early modern era. The last Viet Emperor was a Nguyen, and he put an end to his own regime.

Q3. Do you think history matters in a country’s future development?

Yes. We humans reflect on history to learn from our own mistakes. Understanding our mistakes and correcting them is the solid foundation for future development.

Q4. What is the effective way of learning history, by reading books or watching videos?

It really depends. For beginners, movies are a good starting point. Vivid images and fighting scenes from movies can be very inspirational. It can help inspire people to get to know more about history. However, when one wishes to have a deeper insight, books are the better option.

Q5. Why should we learn history?

History is a good reflection of the past. By learning history, we are able to conceive how our ancestors lived, struggled against Mother Nature, and died. Knowing these facts and learning from their mistakes is a solid foundation for future development.
