I would like to share with you my journey of conquering English. Like many other students, I had to join a course to hone my English-speaking ability. And that course left a long-lasting impression on me.
Although I was pretty confident with my grammar and vocabulary skill, speaking was truly a nightmare for me back then. I was always speechless whenever I needed to communicate in English. So, I decided to take a course to improve my speaking skills, and I can gladly say that the course didn’t let me down. My teacher was from New Zealand, with a heavy accent, but I still managed to understand what he said. He made learning English so enjoyable by integrating lots of audiovisual elements into the teaching. By exposing students to different speaking scenarios, we had a lot of opportunity to use the language to communicate, which certainly improved my fluency and pronunciation.
After a few months following the course, I was able to speak English fluently, and I’m sure that it’s thanks to the effort that my teacher had put into his lessons. I felt very grateful and satisfied with the course.

IELTS Speaking Part 3 Sample
Why do some people have a better memory than others?
Young people usually have a sharper memory than older people I think, probably because they are more active and use their mind and memory much more in their daily life. However, that isn’t always the case. But, I definitely think that in general as people get older, they tend to become more absent-minded and forget things quickly. Unfortunately, that’s just a part of life and all people have to go through the ageing process, although for some it is worse than others.
Absent-minded /ˌæb.səntˈmaɪn.dɪd/ (adj): hay quên
Ví dụ: Grandpa’s becoming quite absent-minded these days.
Ageing /ˈeɪdʒɪŋ/ (n): lão hóa
Ví dụ: Some skin care products claim to stop the ageing process.
Why do some people like things of memorial significance?
Well I think that many people not only like them but also highly value such things, and the reason being that such things probably remind people of their loved ones or of an important event, and they’re usually priceless and irreplaceable. If people lose such items, there is no way to retrieve them, which makes the value of those items more significant.
Irreplaceable /ˌɪr.əˈpleɪ.sə.bəl/ (adj): không thể thay thế
Ví dụ: No one's irreplaceable in the workplace.
Which can help people remember things better, words or photos?
Well, it’s scientifically proven that images are more memorable than text. There is a popular learning method that states that we should associate the words that we want to memorise with pictures. Lots of people have adopted this method, and the outcome is quite impressive.
Memorable /ˈmemərəbl/ (adj): đáng nhớ
Ví dụ: Her novels are full of memorable characters.
Associate / əˈsəʊʃieɪt/ (v): liên kết
Ví dụ: He is closely associated in the public mind with horror movies.
Can technology help people remember things better? How?
No I don’t think so, the use of digital devices can’t really aid our memory; in fact I believe that it makes our memory worse. Because technology tells us to relax and encourages us to put everything on computers and let them do the work of remembering things, people do not train their memory anymore. Gradually, I think our brains will become too lazy to store complicated information.
Aid /eɪd/ (v): hỗ trợ
Ví dụ: The charity was established to aid hurricane victims.
Complicated / ˈkɒmplɪkeɪtɪd/ (adj): phức tạp
Ví dụ: The story is extremely complicated.
