A disagreement that I will talk about will be one that I had a few months back with a close friend of mine. We were preparing a presentation for a project in physics class that we would then do in front of the class.
Both of us are quite interested in the sciences in general, and have our own ‘rabbit holes’ that we fall down into and study at depth for a time. Well around this time he had gotten quite interested in the oceans and marine biology in general, whereas I was going through a phase where I was intensely interested in airplanes, and the physics surrounding flight in general. He was adamant that we should do our presentation on the effects of water pressure on deep sea submarines. While this sounds interesting at first glance, I thought it would be very difficult to make an engaging presentation for. We would not have access to, or the ability to build, anything that would allow us to get the pressures required to actually show the class a meaningful example of how physics was playing out in these situations. Whereas with my idea it would be much easier to use some simple models and diagrams to show off the physics effects that were, in my opinion, much more interesting anyway. Eventually our teacher just told us to do our own experiments independently, which we both knew was going to be more work.
After all was said and done though, both of our presentations went wonderfully and we both received good marks. Talking about it after, we were both quite embarrassed to be so worked up over something so silly.

IELTS Speaking Part 3 Sample
What would you do if you disagreed with someone?
That would depend on the severity of the disagreement, of course. In general I do not allow other people to sway too much over my life if I can get away with it. Just because someone and I disagree on something, that doesn’t mean that there aren’t a million other things we do agree on. Even if that is not the case, it is likely best for me to just engage with this person less than it is to escalate the situation in anyway.
Severity (n) /səˈver.ə.t̬i/: độ nghiêm trọng, căng thẳng
Ví dụ: He spoke with great severity.
Engage with / ɪnˈɡeɪdʒ wɪð /: có liên quan, tiếp xúc đến
Ví dụ: Just stay out of his way as much as possible, and don't engage with him.
How do we stop an argument from escalating into a fight?
There are many different approaches that work for this. The one that I and many others follow is a code of absolute non-violence unless our health is at risk. I would never personally agree to a make an argument into a physical confrontation. My own personal ethics would only allow me to be physical with someone else if they were putting me at risk of bodily harm. In the modern era there is no need for situations to become fights, everyone has the power to walk away from a bad encounter.
Approach (n) /əˈproʊtʃ/: cách tiếp cận vấn đề
Ví dụ: We need to adopt a different approach to the problem.
Non-violence (a) /ˌnɑːnˈvaɪə.ləns/: giải quyết trong hòa bình, không bạo lực
Ví dụ: The Dalai Lama has always counselled non-violence.
Who do you think should teach children to respect their teacher?
I think, as many things to do about raising children, the old adage “It takes a village to raise a child” is appropriate here. It is of course the responsibility of the parents to ensure that their children go to school ingrained with the knowledge that they must respect their teachers, but it is also the responsibility of teachers to be figures worth of respect and to set an example to the students in their care that they are a moral and upstanding citizen worthy of the respect of people around them.
Ingrained (a) /ɪnˈɡreɪnd/: có niềm tin tuyệt đối vào
Ví dụ: Such ingrained prejudices cannot be corrected easily.
Set an example / set ən ɪɡˈzɑːmpl̩ /: làm gương
Ví dụ: You should be setting a good example to your younger brother.
What disagreements do parents and children usually have?
This would vary a lot depending on the age of the children and the dynamics of the household, but I think what is likely to be the most common would be issues that the child would perceive as being about their “freedom”. Be that the freedom to eat junk food whenever they want, the freedom to decide their own bedtime, or the freedom to choose their own social circles.
Household (n) /ˈhaʊs.hoʊld/: hộ gia đình
Ví dụ: By the 1960s, most households had a TV.
Social circle / ˈsəʊʃl ˈsɜːkl̩ /: các mối quan hệ xã hội
Ví dụ: We belong to one world and our social circle comes from many different countries.
