Alright I will talk about my brother, who motivated and helped me a lot to achieve one of my most important goals.
Recently I’ve gained some weight and the mockeries from friends has become more and more irritating. I tried to hit the gym but gave up after two weeks since it was too physically demanding. My brother, who is working for a weight management company at the time, decided to jump in and become my temporary nutritionist.
To help me slim down, he ﬁrst introduced me to one of his company’s main products, the meal replacement shakes, which I had to consume for breakfast and dinner. These shakes provide my body with enough nutrients for a day and contain zero fat. In addition, my brother also pointed out that I need to break some of my bad habits like staying up late, skipping meals and called me several times per day to check on my progress. The key to lose weight, according to him, is 50% dietary supplements and 50% a healthy lifestyle. Thanks to him, I successfully lost 2 kilograms after the ﬁrst two weeks and was able to catch a glimpse of a healthy lifestyle.
That’s all I want to share. Thanks for listening!
Mockeries: sự chế giễu
Physically demanding: cần nhiều thể lực
Jump in: nhảy vào một tnh huống khó khăn

IELTS Speaking Part 3
1. Is this important for teenagers to set goals?
Có: tìm hiểu về bản thân, phát triển kỹ năng mềm cần thiết cho tương lai, xây dựng định hướng, tnh thực tế.
Không: để não trẻ hoạt động một cách thoải mái, sáng tạo, tránh tạo những áp lực vô hình cho trẻ.
I do think teaching kids about goal-setting at an early age is essential, as it helps children develop a sense of purpose and teaches them about the value of patience and hard work toward achieving their dreams. However, children’s goals should be realistic and within their ability. Many parents in Vietnam, for example, encourage their children to set such overambitious goals like getting accepted into Harvard, which put children under a lot of pressure.
2. Who do you think has the greater inﬂuence on goal-setting of children? Teachers or parents?
Cha mẹ: có nhiều thời gian với trẻ hơn (từ nhỏ đến lớn), trẻ con thường bắt chước hành động của bố mẹ.
Giáo viên: được chuẩn bị kỹ năng giảng dạy tốt hơn, có nhiều cách gây ảnh hưởng đến trẻ hơn.
Opinions diverge on this topic. Some people say parents have the major inﬂuence because they spend the largest amount of time with their kids. Most kids also mimic their parents’ behavior, whether it is good or bad. However, I believe teachers play a more vital role, since teachers are professionally-trained educators and would have more eﬀective methods to help children set goals.
3. What will motivate children to learn more?
Gợi ý: cho trẻ tiếp cận nhiều cách học khác nhau, phần thưởng, hình phạt, tạo niềm vui cho trẻ khi học, tập trung vào điểm mạnh (strengths) của trẻ.
There are many things. To be honest, rewards and punishments are on the top of my list, but I can also name quite a few. I think teachers should make the lesson more fun by organizing knowledge-based games or including visual eﬀects in their presentation, which will attract children’s attention and encourage partcipation in class.
Sense of purpose: nhận thức về mục đích
Put sb under pressure: tạo áp lực cho ai đó
Mimic parents’ behavior: bắt chước hành vi bố mẹ
On the top of my list: đầu tên nghĩ ra
Encourage partcipation in class: khuyến khích sự tham gia xây dựng bài học trong lớp
