To answer this, I will draw attention to this very test that we are going through right now. I have been studying and practicing for this test for months now, and while I have generally thought that I would do okay, there have definitely been times of worry about my progress leading up to the test.
Well, about a month ago during a class, we were practicing for this part, the third part of the speaking exam. The prompt I had been given was about tourism, and when my teacher asked me some follow up questions on the topic, I gave an answer that I was very proud of but unsure if they would like it. They thought deeply for a moment, then said that my answer had changed their opinion on the topic all together. I was very happy about this because I see my teacher as a very intelligent person. I had taken a thoughtful and well considered enough approach to the topic that my opinion had been validated to the point that my professor changed their opinion on a real life topic due to reflection on my own thoughts.
It made me quite proud, not just for being able to articulate my idea in English, but for the idea itself to have been adequately meaningful to change his opinion.

IELTS Speaking Part 3 Sample
Will you be affected when hearing a number of negative stories?
I think I would be, especially if they are all about myself. Though I consider myself to be relatively thick skinned so criticisms generally roll right off me. What would be more likely to affect me would be who was being negative. If some random classmate thought my work wasn’t any good, I will take that and carry on with my life, I am not too bothered by it. Though if my mother told me my work wasn’t any good, it would bother me a lot more as I want to make her proud.
thick-skinned (a) /ˌθɪkˈskɪnd/: không dễ dàng bị ảnh hưởng bởi chỉ trích
Ex: You do need to be thick-skinned to survive as a politician here.
roll right off / rəʊl ˈraɪt ɒf /: không có sức ảnh hưởng
Ex: They can act like a duck and let hurtful behaviors roll right off of their backs.
How will you react when someone pays you a compliment?
Generally I try and reflect the comment back to them if it is applicable. For instance, if I gave a speech in the classroom and a classmate commended me on it, I would thank them and say “yours was also awesome, we did a great job” or something similar if they have presented already or “Thanks, though hopefully you don’t make me look too bad when you get up there” if they haven’t. I think it is important for people to compliment each other and to just take notice of their peers' accomplishments.
Applicable (a) /əˈplɪk.ə.bəl/: có liên quan, có sự ảnh hưởng
Ex: The company will help with moving expenses where applicable.
take notice of / ˈteɪk ˈnəʊtɪs ɒv /: chú ý, để ý tới
Ex: Voters are beginning to take notice of him as a serious candidate.
Why can negative feedback be just as important as positive feedback at work?
This is a difficult one, but I will do my best to explain how I view it. I think it is very situation dependent, and dependent on each employee's personality, and that of their employer or manager. I think negative feedback would be most beneficial when it is done constructively and in private. If the manager cannot comment on ways in which the work can be improved, then in my opinion, they have no right being in management over that role. Whereas positive feedback would likely be the most useful in public and in front of coworkers.
constructively (adv) /kənˈstrʌk.tɪv.li/: một cách có ích
Ex: We ought to deal constructively with the problems.
