Bài mẫu chủ đề Describe a time you waited for something special to happen

I’m not a patient person so I really hate waiting. However, I had to patiently wait to be reunited with my family one time.

In Vietnam, all men are obligated to serve the army for at least two years and I was not  an exception. Three years ago, I joined the army to fulfill my duty for the country and it was not a very exciting period for me. I didn’t like the environment there cause it was completely different from my daily life, so I found it very difficult to adapt to that environment and get on with all the people there.

I wouldn’t say that it was a painful experience because I also learned a lot from it. I’ve learned how to live independently and how to survive in any given situation. But there weren’t too many things to do in the army so I spent most of my time waiting to return to my family. Imagine that you have to wait every single day for 2 years, it’s definitely not something that people want to experience. Most of my fellow peers and I suffered from homesickness, we talked about our family a lot and that’s how we were able to overcome all these difficult moments.

Finally, it ended a year ago, when I could finally come back to my house. When I look back, it was an unforgettable time and I think that I will never have the chance to experience something like that again.

IELTS Speaking Part 3 Sample

1. On what occasions do people usually need to wait?

There are a host of things that people need to wait for on a daily basis. From simple things like waiting for their friends to arrive or waiting for a plane to take off. Waiting is something that you cannot avoid in your life because it is part and parcel of day-to-day living.

take off: cất cánh

Ví dụ: The plane took off an hour late.

part and parcel /pɑːrt ənd ˈpɑːrsl/: một phần quan trọng

Ví dụ: Keeping the accounts is part and parcel of my job.

2. Who behaves better when waiting, children or adults?

Probably adults, I mean, they could think of the reasons why they have to wait, and most adults, in my opinion, are accustomed to waiting. On the other hand, children are very impatient so they are likely to behave badly whenever they have to wait. I remember myself crying and shouting when I had to wait too long for my mom to pick me up at school.

accustomed /əˈkʌstəmd/ (adj): quen với

Ví dụ: My eyes slowly grew accustomed to the dark.

impatient /ɪmˈpeɪʃnt/ (adj): mất kiên nhẫn

Ví dụ: I'd been waiting for twenty minutes and I was getting impatient.

3. Compared to the past, are people less patient now, why?

Well, patience has always been a virtue regardless of time. But you know, time is money, so I guess time is more important nowadays as there are so many responsibilities that people have to shoulder in modern life. I think that is the reason why punctuality has become increasingly important.

virtue /ˈvɜːrtʃuː/ (n): đức hạnh, giá trị đạo đức, đức tính

Ví dụ: Patience is not one of her virtues, I'm afraid.

punctuality /ˌpʌŋktʃuˈæləti/ (n): sự đúng giờ

Ví dụ: He insists on regular attendance and punctuality.

4. What are the positive and negative effects of waiting on society?

For the advantages, I guess waiting helps develop patience, which prevents people from becoming angry at trivial things. However, waiting can also trigger fury. There are many cases where people get involved in violent acts just because someone is not on time.
