Well I would like to talk about Huyen, one of my friends whose company I really enjoy.
Speaking of how long I have known this person, we’ve been classmates since highschool. She sat next to me for over four years, and so it is fair to say we know each other quite well. Although she is a devil in disguise, there are many reasons why I like to have her around.
For one thing, she is the most talkative person I know who is capable of talking nonstop for hours. She often bothered me with her endless stories during our lessons and often got us scolded by our teachers. Because most of her stories were funny, I could not stop myself from laughing and talking with her. Now each of us are busy with our work, so we could only hang out on the weekend in a small café on Hoang Cau street. But every time we meet, it feels like we lost touch for 10 years as she would keep on updating me stories about her life even with or without my consent. Luckily with an introverted personality, I am quite a good listener and had no problem with that. I guess we make a perfect team.

IELTS Speaking Part 3
1. What kinds of co-workers do people like to work with?
Gợi ý: giỏi, nhiều kiến thức (knowledgeable), kinh nghiệm thực tế (hands-on experience), sẵn sàng chia sẻ, hợp tác (co-operative), vui vẻ, hoà đồng.
I guess it depends on each person’s preferences. Personally, I do not want to work with people who have a lot of knowledge or experience but refuse to share it. Rather, I would love to work with a co-operative partner who is willing to work as a team and is not afraid of receiving constructive criticism.
2. Which one is more important to you at work, development in work-related skills or recognition from your supervisors?
Development in work-related skills: tăng hiệu quả làm việc, phát triển bản thân hơn, tăng cơ hội tìm việc (nếu có chuyển chỗ làm).
Recognition from your supervisors: tăng sự hài lòng trong công việc (work satisfaction), tăng sự tận tâm và trung thành.
Although acquiring diﬀerent work-related skills will help you improve career prospects, I believe recognition from your boss is always more important. It directly aﬀects your job satisfaction, which has a positive relationship with work eﬃciency. Also, since appreciative leaders are appreciated leaders, employees of such leaders will be more willing to stick around and commit to the company.
3. Do you think managers should be friends with their subordinates?
Yes: sếp cần quan tâm, thông cảm với nhân viên, tạo động lực, thúc đẩy tnh thần làm việc và hiệu quả công việc.
No: tránh sự thiên vị, giữ sự chuyên nghiệp, giữ cái “uy”.
Yes and no. A boss should care and sympathize with each employee to make them feel taken care of on a personal level, which could become a great motivation and improve morale. However, they should also know how to draw a line between themselves and their subordinates, not only to stay professional but also to avoid bias treatment.
Constructive criticism: lời phê bình mang tính xây dựng
Improve career prospects: tăng cơ hội tìm kiếm việc làm
Job satisfaction: sự hài lòng về công việc
Improve morale: cải thiện tinh thần (làm việc)
Draw a line: phân biệt
Bias treatment: đối xử thiên vị
