Today I would like to tell you about a time I used online banking to pay the bills for bus tickets.
It was last summer when my roommate and I decided to go on a trip to Dalat after having ﬁnished our ﬁnal semester examination. We were so up to our ears in preparing for exams as well as working part-time that we forgot to book the bus tickets. Only 10 days before the trip did we realize this and hurriedly went on the website for booking tickets online. It was midnight when we logged onto the website to check the availability of tickets and quickly noticed that there were only 2 seats left on the bus. Without any hesitation, I ﬁlled in all the information to ﬁnish the booking procedure. All of a sudden, a countdown clock of 10 minutes appeared on the screen and I realized that I had to pay the money within this time.
You know it was midnight already. One thing for sure that I could not run neither to the bank nor the ATM to transfer the money. But if we could not manage to pay for the tickets in time, the booking procedure would be cancelled and there might be someone else taking those 2 tickets before us. Luckily, there was another kind of payment, which was via online banking. I quickly logged onto my internet banking account and succeeded in transferring the money with only about 1 minute left. We both breathed a sigh of relief after receiving the email of conﬁrmation of the booking. Thanks to the Internet, everything is so fast and convenient.
That’s all I want share.

IELTS Speaking Part 3
Do you think old people now use the Internet more frequently compared to the past?
Gợi ý: Có. Người lớn tuổi lên mạng để đọc báo vì có thể phóng to chữ ra, còn có thể dùng để liên lạc với con cháu ở xa.
Yeah, I think more and more seniors are going online these days. As far as I’ve noticed, most of them use the Internet to read news and stay connected with their children or grandchildren who live far away from home. I see that my grandparents prefer accessing news via the Internet because online reading provides them with “zoom” option for better visual experience. Also, applications like Zalo or Facebook enable the elderly to contact their children without paying too much. That’s why old people are using the Internet more frequently.
What can people use the Internet for, besides studying and working?
Gợi ý: Mua sắm trực tuyến. Hiện nay hình thức mua sắm này rất phổ biến vì tiện lợi hơn, rẻ hơn và toàn diện hơn.
I think the Internet has revolutionized the way people shop. Online shopping has gained increasing popularity because of its numerous beneﬁts. Convenience is the biggest perk. Users can shop comfortably at midnight in minutes without travelling to any store. Besides, cheap deals and better prices are also available online. It’s very easy to compare prices among diﬀerent stores and ﬁnd a better deal. That’s not to mention that we can shop from retailers in other parts of the country, or even world.
Are youngsters wasting their time on the Internet?
Gợi ý: Cái này tùy thuộc vào mục đích sử dụng của họ. Nếu sử dụng vì mục đích xấu thì sẽ phí phạm thời gian nhưng ngược lại dùng cho mục đích tốt có thể giúp tết kiệm nhiều thời gian.
I think it depends on what young people are doing on the Internet, as it can be a great resource or a massive distraction. If they just simply spend hours surﬁng online without any speciﬁc purpose, it would be deﬁnitely a waste of time. However, if people manage to make use of it wisely for learning, working or even entertainment, the Internet can help them save a huge amount of time, which increases their working productivity.
