Question & Answer:

Do you have many books at home?

As I am an avid reader, I have spent all my savings on books. That is why you can easily find a large book collection arranged neatly in the book case in the living room of my house.

How often do you read books?

Reading has become my habit, and I read books on a daily basis. A book of any kind is a must-have item in my bag when I go somewhere as it can be a good activity to make good use of waiting time. Also, it is hard to imagine a day without something to read before bedtime.

What was your favourite type of books as a child?

Just like other kids, comic books were my favorite when I was a little girl. I still remember how excited I was when I flipped through the colorful pages and got lost in the world of my favorite comic characters.

I consider myself as a bookworm so when it comes to describing a book I read, I am really confused since I don’t know which one to choose, but I will tell you about the book that I have just finished most recently – Angels and Demons – a bestselling mystery-thriller novel written by Dan Brown.
The whole story revolves around the protagonist named Robert Langdon who is on a quest to rescue the Pope and discover the underlying mysteries of the Catholic church. Though the book involves a lot of religious issues, it can cater to all kinds of readers as there aren’t many technical terms. From my point of view, it is a true masterpiece, enchanting and captivating, filled with conspiracies and plot twists that really send shivers down my spine. I was so fascinated by the book that I had to find the film adaptation online to watch afterwards, and it did not let me down at all. The movie was so action-packed that it kept me on the edge of my seat.

What I especially like about the book is that it is very thought-provoking and it kept me thinking for a very long time after I had finished reading. I appreciate the moral lessons of the book. The story, though may sound distant to our lives, conveys meanings that are relatable to readers, and I am grateful that I learnt something from the book.

All in all, it is an outstanding book that I would definitely recommend to my friends.

Okay so I would like to tell you about the book called Harry Potter, which is a fantasy novel, written by the British author J. K. Rowling. It’s one that I can reread time and time again.

The book describes the life of a young wizard named Harry Potter and his two best friends, Ron and Hermione. Harry has to struggle to kill the Dark wizard Lord Voldemort, whose aim is to become immortal and destroy all those who stand in his way of ruling the world.

The reason why this book comes to mind is that it is a reminder of my childhood. It was a gift for my birthday from my parents to reward my high score in an exam at school. Up until now, I can still remember clearly how fascinated I was when I received it.

Thanks to this book, I realized that determination and effort play essential roles in achieving my goals. Since then, I have always worked hard to overcome all obstacles and challenges in my life.

Harry Potter will always be on my to-read list for a number of reasons. Firstly, I have always been a great admirer of science fiction books so I love the way that the author describes the whole magical world with the magic school, Hogwarts, and the flying brooms. Secondly, reading this book not only helps me to relax after a long day of work or study but also cheers me up whenever I am feeling blue.

Bài mẫu IELTS Speaking Part 3 tham khảo

What kind of books do children like?

Gợi ý: chuyện cổ tích/ ngụ ngôn → nhân vật gần gũi/ nội dung trong sáng thú vị; Chuyện anh hùng/ tiểu thuyết/ …

I’m not sure, but I guess they enjoy fairy tales and folk stories since the plots are usually quite bright. For example, most kids read Cinderella and love the book very much. I guess it is because it has beautiful characters and a happy ending.

What should parents do to encourage their children to read books?

Gợi ý: dạy trẻ từ bé/ mua sách phù hợp với lứa tuổi/ cho con cái tham gia các câu lạc bộ đọc sách (reading club) hay trao đổi sách.

It is necessary that parents encourage their children’s reading activities at an early age. This can help kids develop a habit of reading for pleasure. Also, parents should not be too controlling over the books their children read letting them read what they love will keep them more interested in reading.

Why do adults still have to read books?

Gợi ý: để giải trí, giải toả đầu óc (destress) sau khi làm việc/ để học hỏi thêm kiến thức.

I think because people can learn a lot from reading books, as books not only are stress-relieving but also enrich one’s soul and enhance one’s knowledge, and learning is a process of a lifetime. For that reason, people of all ages still read books.

Từ vựng

  • Fairy tales: truyện cổ tích
