Today I am going to talk about a TV show that got me absolutely hooked and I would recommend to anyone with even a small interest in science fiction.
The series is called “The Expanse” and it is set in the near future, not very specific on dates but likely about 500 years from now. In the series they try to take a realistic view of what human expansion into space is likely to mean for the actual people doing so on a personal, social, and cultural level. While I have always been a bit of a space nerd, this introduced me to many complicated ideas that I had never considered before, many of which felt obvious immediately after learning them. One example would be the changing of accents. Certain people in certain parts of the solar system are more likely to interact with each other than with others in different areas, and this would lead to varying dialects and accents among those people as they spent more and more time in isolation.
There were numerous other examples such as this, and it is the only TV program that I have watched where when I would be introduced to a new idea, I would need to pause the show and contemplate all of the possibilities.

IELTS Speaking Part 3 Sample
What programs do people like to watch in your country?
The most common series in my country are definitely the big name and high budget productions that come out of the U.S.A. The production values are very high quality, and even if the writing isn’t great, you know the fight scenes and explosions will be. The only other place that could compete with Hollywood in production funding is China, and people are unlikely to be drawn to those.
high budget /haɪ ˈbʌʤɪt/: ngân sách cao
Ex: We decorated the house on a high budget.
explosion (n) /ɪkˈspləʊʒn/: nổ
Ex: There were two loud explosions and then the building burst into flames.
Do people in your country like foreign TV programs?
Absolutely, the largest contributor to this would of course be American productions, but there have for many years been a lot of Japanese series that have become extremely popular here, particularly animated series. For example, every single child can recognize Doraemon instantaneously. In recent years, there has also been a huge shift in the popularity to programs produced in South Korea. I even have multiple friends now who have chosen to start studying Korean language for this reason.
instantaneously (adv) /ˌɪnstənˈteɪniəsli/: Ngay lập tức
Ex: The show sold out instantaneously.
What’s the benefit of letting kids watch animal videos instead of visiting zoos?
There are multiple benefits to this, but also some downsides. First, the benefits are clear, it is much more economically viable to turn on an animal video or 10 than it is to schedule a day to pay to bring your child to the zoo. It also lets the child learn how diverse the world is around them in a very easy way. Negatively, the same level of wonder will never be achieved by showing a picture or a video of something as when getting to see it up close and in person.
downside (n) /ˈdaʊnsaɪd/: Bất lợi, nhược điểm
Ex: On the downside, such improvements in efficiency often mean job losses.
viable (a) /ˈvaɪəbl/: khả thi
Ex: None of the projects proved financially viable.
Do you agree or disagree that game shows and chat shows are a waste of time?
I don’t think that they are a waste of time, not entirely. Game shows are pretty silly and bring little value but they are a means of relaxation for those watching them, and likely for a few laughs. Also, it should be said that some game shows can be testing people knowledge, and that can help to teach people things. Also, chat shows are only a waste of time if what they are discussing in completely unimportant, and I find it hard to find any topic that isn’t important to someone.
relaxation (n) /ˌriːlækˈseɪʃn/: Thư giãn
Ex: I go hill-walking for relaxation.
