Bài mẫu chủ đề “Describe a habit your friend and you want to develop”

Well, I’m not perfect so there are a lot of habits that I want to have. One of which is to strictly follow a workout regimen, just like some of my friends are doing.

 Every afternoon, my friends meet up at the park to play badminton together. They have been doing that since high school because it gives them a chance to catch up with each other as well as improve their health. I used to be a part of that and we’ve had a lot of fun in the past, but you know, at the moment, my work requires me to work in shifts so I’m unable to attend these sessions anymore.

My body is getting out of shape because I don’t do anything to keep fit. I hit the gym a few weeks ago but I couldn’t stand working out alone, having no one to talk to, so I decided to give up. I’ve been trying to figure out what I could do in order to get into shape but my mind goes blank whenever I think about it. I think the only place that could help me to stay the course is the park, where I get the chance to meet my friends.

 I’m always jealous of my friends because they are able to regularly work out together. I’m thinking about changing my job so that I could lead a healthier lifestyle.

IELTS Speaking Part 3 Sample

1. What habits should children have?

Children should be taught to pick up good habits as soon as possible. We don’t need to teach them very big things like money management or anything like that. I think that if they can develop and maintain small actions like having breakfast on time or brushing their teeth before bedtime, it would do wonders for them later on.

  • money management /ˈmʌni ˈmænɪʤmənt/: quản lý tiền bạc

Ví dụ: In seven out of 10 households it's a woman who's now responsible for money management.

  • Do wonders for : mang đến điều kì diệu cho

Ví dụ: Going to sleep early can do wonders for your health.

2. What should parents do to teach their children good habits?

Making them familiar with them. For example, if parents can install a routine of regular mealtimes, it is likely that children will continue this good habit in the future. Besides that, they could use their power to force their kids into forming good habits, like getting them off the sofa and television, preventing them from becoming couch potatoes.

  • routine /ruːˈtiːn/: công việc hàng ngày

Ví dụ: Exercise has become part of my daily routine.

  •  couch potato /ˈkaʊtʃ pəteɪtəʊ/: người nghiện xem TV

Ví dụ: He's turned into a real couch potato since he subscribed to the sports channel

3. How do people develop bad habits?

I guess that everyone has at least one bad habit. Although most of us know that it’s not good for us,  we still keep doing it because it has become an inner part of us. Take smoking, for example, lots of people cannot live without it even though they are well aware that cigarettes will destroy their lungs.

  • inner  /ˈɪnə(r)/: bên trong

Ví dụ: She doesn't reveal much of her inner self.

  • Well-aware /wɛl əˈweə/: nhận thức rõ

Ví dụ: They are well aware of the problems

4. What habits do people have when they get older?

Things that they have been doing since they were a kid. It seems to me that we are going to keep doing what we are familiar with. For example, a lot of old people still prefer buying a traditional newspaper to reading news online because they feel more comfortable holding a newspaper in their hands. This can also be said for the case of letters or cameras.

  • Familiar /fəˈmɪliər/: quen thuộc

Ví dụ: Then she heard a familiar voice.
