IELTS Speaking sample:
I'd like to tell you about the performance of my favorite rock band called Oldcodex.
First, let me give you some background information about the band: Oldcodex is a Japanese rock band formed by a singer named Ta_2 and a painter Yorke. At their concerts, they give one-and-only performances with Ta_2 singing and Yorke simultaneously painting dynamic artworks.
I’ve been their fan for years. Last week, they uploaded a new video on their channel on Youtube, which included highlights of their biggest concert in Japan last year.
In the video, they performed a song called “Aching Horns”, one of their most popular songs. Ta_2 sang so energetically that it seemed like he was pouring his heart out. While I got absorbed in Ta_2’s sorrowful singing, my eyes were also pleased by the beautiful psychedelic horns Yorke was painting on a canvas on the stage.
That was one of the most impressive performances I've ever watched. Oldcodex is not really a kind of worldwide famous band, but they are unique. They've produced great songs and performances that only they can create. One day, when I save enough money, I hope that I can travel to Japan and enjoy their performances with my own eyes rather than watching them on my laptop's screen.
That’s all I want to share with you.

IELTS Speaking Part 3 Sample
Câu 1: What's the difference between watching a live performance and watching it on TV?
Gợi ý: enjoyable (thú vị, thích thú), extroverts (những người hướng ngoại), chant (hô khẩu hiệu), introverts (những người hướng nội), in the comfort of their home (sự thoải mái ở nhà)
I think watching live performances and watching them on TV is more enjoyable than one another to audiences with different characteristics. On the one hand, extroverts who want to dance and chant with other fellow fans prefer watching performances live. On the other hand, introverts who want full control of their surroundings and no distraction will choose enjoying events on TV in the comfort of their home.
Câu 2: Should governments provide financial support to promote traditional performance?
Gợi ý: preservation (sự bảo tồn), survive (sống sót), cultural values (những giá trị văn hóa)
Definitely! The preservation of traditional performances requires a lot of money, and without the financial support of the government, these performances may not survive and we may lose some of our cultural values.
Câu 3: Is learning drama or dancing helpful for children?
Gợi ý: stressful (căng thẳng/ đầy áp lực), relaxation (hoạt động thư giãn), creative (sáng tạo), confident (tự tin)
Yes, it is. First, learning drama or dancing is less stressful than science subjects such as math or chemistry. Therefore, dancing and drama classes can be a good way to relax for children. Also, studying performing arts like drama or dancing and even painting can help children become more creative and confident.
