IELTS Speaking sample:
Polish Video game studio called CD Projekt Red, whose headquarter is in Krakow, Poland IIRC
So basically it’s a company which develops and publishes many video games, with the most notable one being a series called The Witcher. It’s the biggest game developer in Poland, and perhaps one of the most well-known and reputable game developers at the moment, not only in Europe but also around the world.
I knew about CD Projekt Red when I was watching The Game Awards 2015 ceremony, which is like an Oscar for video games. In this event, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – the final part of the legendary Witcher trilogy - accomplished a brilliant achievement after winning a total of three major categories, which had happened only twice in the history of the award. And what struck me most profoundly was the acceptance speech delivered by the company’s co-founder. The speech was short, but very powerful. And from that moment, I knew there was something very special about this game developer. I became their fan not too long after that, and I’ve never regretted it.
I admire CDPR mostly because of their genuine passion for video games, the insane amount of effort they put in their brainchild, and the fact that they really respect their fanbase. From my observation, the problem for most well-known developers nowadays is that rather than making a short game that is consistently good, they would make a long, fancy looking game which only draws the players’ attention for the first few hours, and feel like a long, boring checklist rather than something we’re interested to do. These games might look impressive due to their ultra realistic graphics or an insane amount of content, but they sorely lack a solid foundation regarding story and gameplay – which are, for me, the two most fundamental elements. CDPR, on the other hand, always focuses on these core values. That’s why their games always feel more like an interactive cinematic experience where the player’s totally immersed in a different world, and it’s almost impossible to stop playing once the story starts to pick up

IELTS Speaking Part 3 Sample
1. What are the diﬀerences between a big company and a small company?
Gợi ý: separated departments (phòng ban tách biệt), limited human resources (nguồn nhân lực hạn chế)
A big company has separated departments with its own manager and a great number of employees while a small company has limited human resources and the boss is probably the one who decides everything.
2. What are the advantages of working in a big company?
Gợi ý: Promotion chance (cơ hội thăng tiến).
It's the opportunity to learn, I believe. Besides, training is held regularly so employees in big companies will have more opportunities to improve their knowledge and skills. Also, the leaders in big companies are excellent people so you will learn great lessons from them.
3. Is it difficult to get a promotion in a large company?
Gợi ý: get promoted (thăng tiến), competitive rate (tỉ lệ cạnh tranh), career ladder (nấc thang nghề nghiệp)
Certainly. There are many chances to get promoted in those companies but due to the great number of employees, it's also very competitive. So if an employee wants to get higher in their career ladder, they need to make great effort and find opportunities to show their managers what they have for a higher position compared to others.
