IELTS Speaking sample:
Well, it was 3 years ago when I joined in a project called CET – Duke Engage. At that time I was still a third-year student. The project aimed to give American students at Duke University a chance to experience life in South Asia and contribute to the community. Mrs. Melinda Gates funded the project, and it was in Quang Tri Province. I joined in the project as a Vietnamese volunteer who supported American students in learning Vietnamese culture and language. Each Vietnamese student stayed in the same room with an American student. Besides, I joined in all activities in the program. I decided to be a part of this program because I wanted to improve my English.
The project lasted for 2 months, and it was one of the most amazing time in my life. Every morning, we had to ride a bike to the worksite, where we built a concrete path for local people to replace the muddy one. It was our first time to work with cement, rocks, wheelbarrows, trowels and shovels. In the afternoon, we went to the Youth Center to teach English for local children. Of course it was free. Every evening, we played some sports and made lesson plans together. We also held a soccer tournament and a culture show for local children to participate in during the program. The program gave me many things: friendships, knowledge and a will of never giving up. When I was working in the program, there were many times that I just wanted to quit because the building task was so physically demanding. But thanks to my friends’ encouragement, I overcame the difficulties and completed all tasks. Even though the project was closed 3 years ago, I still keep in touch with other participants on social media. My roommate – who was an American Medical student, even came back to visit me last year. It was without doubt the most memorable experience in my student life.

IELTS Speaking Part 3 Sample
1. What kind of activities do adults and children participate in together?
Gợi ý: family bonding (sự gắn kết gia đình)
Basically, adults and children can enjoy all family activities together. For example, parents and children can go on a picnic together. They all can enjoy the activity because while adults can have some talks and take some pictures, children may play around with their siblings or learn about trees and flowers. Another example is to read stories together. Even though this sounds quite boring for adults, I believe it’s a good way to improve family bonding and it’s also a common activity of every family in the world.
2. In your opinion, why in some cases is teamwork less effective than personal work?
Gợi ý: the nature of the tasks (bản chất công việc), work independently (làm việc một mình), cooperate (phối hợp)
Well, it’s because of the people’s personality and the nature of the tasks. People who are better at working independently than working in a team will not perform well in teamwork because they don’t know how to cooperate with other teammates, which will lead to the whole team’s bad performance. Besides, some tasks such as typing or making phone calls cannot be done by teamwork.
3. What personalities do team members need to make a successful team?
Gợi ý: good communication skill (kĩ năng giao tiếp tốt), positive attitude (thái độ tích cực), conflict (mâu thuẫn)
There are many personalities that form a good team member but I believe a good communication skill and a positive attitude are the most important qualities. When people work in a team, they have to talk and discuss with other members to figure out the most feasible solutions to their problems. So they need to be eager to speak out their ideas and listen to others’ opinions. Besides, conflict when doing teamwork is unavoidable so a positive attitude will help them get over the argument to focus on the team’s goals.
