Bài mẫu chủ đề Describe something that you do that can help you concentrate on work or study
What I do to help me concentrate when I am working or studying is to put on music.
Generally I put on a genre called lofi. It is not fast paced but it follows consistent rhythms and it is easy to get into the groove of things while listening to. My house is very rarely quiet, so I almost always end up using my noise canceling headphones so that I don’t get distracted by what other people in my house are doing. I don’t know if this would be as beneficial for everyone, but it is for me. I have been doing it this way for about 3 years now and it has gotten to the point that I find it difficult to pay attention and write without it. The only issue is that I often get carried away, when the music is good and the thoughts are flowing freely, sometimes I don’t realize the time until it is very late at night, in fact, there have even been occasions where I lost track of time and only realized how far past my bed time that I had gone when the sun started shining through my window.
While this is not good, it is difficult to argue with the results.

IELTS Speaking Part 3 Sample
1. Is it important for children to learn how to concentrate?
While it is definitely important for children to learn to concentrate, teaching it as a skill seems like it would be something quite difficult to do. I think that the best way to go about it is with positive reinforcement. When parents or teachers see a child who is concentrating and getting their work done well, they should be commended for it afterwards.
Concentrate /ˈkɑːnsntreɪt/(v): Tập trung
Ex: I can't concentrate with all that noise going on.
Reinforcement /ˌriːɪnˈfɔːsmənt/(n): Sự củng cố
Ex: The children respond well to praise and positive reinforcement.
Commend /kəˈmend/ (v): Tuyên dương
Ex: She was commended on her handling of the situation.
2. What can employers do to help employees concentrate?
Employers can help employees concentrate in a number of ways. The first being that of ensuring the workplace is conducive to concentration. Avoiding overcrowding of offices would be very useful in this respect. Also, if an employee's job can be done from home, they should be allowed to work from home, as they are almost certainly more comfortable there and so can concentrate more deeply.
conducive /kənˈdjuːsɪv/(a) : Có lợi cho, giúp ích cho
Ex: The noise was hardly conducive to a good night’s sleep.
3. What kinds of jobs require higher concentration at work?
I think most jobs require at least some degree of concentration, but the ones that require the most are probably those in the medical field. For instance, doctors and nurses need high concentration, and particularly surgeons. I sure do not want to be under the knife of a surgeon who does not have a high level of concentration.
Surgeon /ˈsɜːdʒən/(n): Bác sĩ phẫu thuật
Ex: Surgeons performed two operations on him yesterday.
4. Have you ever felt it difficult to concentrate?
Absolutely. The times when I find it most difficult to concentrate are times when there is something else on my mind, usually social engagements. For example, if I know that there is an important event like a friends party coming up soon, I will have trouble thinking about my work, as it feels very boring in comparison.
Engagement /ɪnˈɡeɪdʒmənt/(n): Cam kết (tham gia hoạt động)
Ex: He has a number of social engagements next week.
5. What kinds of distractions are bothering you in your life?
The most common distraction that I face is likely my younger brother. As we share a room it is quite difficult to tune him out. He is quite young so he is still very active in play, and it can be very difficult to concentrate on homework when he is running around having fun.
distraction /dɪˈstrækʃn/(n): Thứ gây xao nhãng
Ex: I find it hard to work at home because there are too many distractions.
to tune somebody out: Phớt lờ ai đó
Ex: Most of what he says is such garbage that I just tune him out.
