Let me tell you about chemistry, which is a subject I used to hate but now have a lot of interest in.
Dating back to my 8th grade when we were ﬁrst introduced to the subject, most of the students, including me, were really excited at the chance to make stuﬀ explode or at least change color. However, our hopes and dreams were quickly crushed during our ﬁrst chemistry class, when our teacher gave each of us the periodic table and laid down a thick stack of paper full of theoretical exercises. Looking at the table, my mind automatically shut down at the giant amount of knowledge we had to learn, including 118 elements and their molecular masses, densities and boiling points.
The ﬁrst semester was miserable as chemistry required a lot of memorization. Even though it took us ages to learn all the materials by heart, I ﬁnally managed to memorize most of the periodic table after a while. Interestingly enough, I soon realized that there was not much logical thinking involved in chemistry like in math or physics. Chemistry exercises started to become much easier. Plus, our teacher ﬁnally allowed us to do the ﬂashy experiments we always wanted to do. That’s how chemistry transformed from one of the most boring subjects to one of my favorites for the rest of my high school years.

IELTS Speaking Part 3
1. What can teachers do to make their lectures more interesting?
Gợi ý: create class room games, use technology, make your lesson interactive, relate material to students‘ lives.
In order to encourage participation in class, a good teacher must know how to include other activities apart from just giving boring, impractical theoretical knowledge. He should organize some games, teamwork exercises or include some of his personal experiences while explaining a diﬃcult concept.
2. What do you think about the importance of the Internet in education?
Very important: teachers can make their lessons more exciting, students can self- study.
Not important: students can be easily distracted; teachers should not rely too much on technology.
I believe when it comes to education, the Internet is of great importance to both teachers and students. A teacher can rely on online visual support such as Youtube videos or images to attract students’ attention and make the class more exciting, while students can learn to self-study thanks to the wealth of knowledge on the Internet.
3. Is information on the Internet reliable?
No: information on the Internet are unrestricted, some people try to exaggerate or give misleading titles/articles for views.
Yes: some sources that come from academic articles or national newspapers are reliable.
It depends. Online information is notorious for being untrustworthy as everyone can voice their opinion freely on any subject online. However, there are websites such as Google Scholar that provide reliable academic sources from actual researches and surveys.
