Topic 1 Describe of your family who are very close to I am going to talk about my mother who has played an essential role in my life. She is my guardian, my friend and my role model. My mother is in her forties now, but she still maintains a youthful look. In terms of personality, she is an extremely compassionate and kind-hearted person who always takes care of her children. She really is a mother and a friend to me as she always gives me valuable advice and is willing to stand by me through all the ups and downs of my life. Although sometimes she drives me crazy due to her being a perfectionist, I still hold so much pride and respect for her. I am also influenced by her strong-will. Ever since she was young, she had to learn to be independent as my grandparents were very busy and constantly on the go. She had to take care of almost everything: her younger brother, household chores and herself. Such challenges shaped her into the strong person that she is now. Her determination, as well as her perseverance, are really something for us to look up to. And I keep reminding myself every day to be as strong as my mother, a real-life “wonder woman.” Topic 2: Describe a teacher that you adimire During my student days, I met numerous teachers who had taught me a lot of things. There were some that I disliked and some that I truly respected (or respected very much). When I was in grade 11, I met Mr. Thanh, a middle-aged and outstanding math teacher in my high school. He could explain away difficult math problems in an easy-to-understand manner. However, that was not the main reason why I liked him. Rather, it was on the account of the manner of his interaction with his students. He treated them as if they were his friends. In his class, we often engaged in thoughtful conversations. The many funny stories that he shared with us were real and meaningful. He taught us how to conduct ourselves properly in life and how to treat people fairly. He was the one who encouraged me to excel in my study.
His words of advice have stayed with me until today, and I will never forget him. Topic 3: Describe a piece of equipment you often use at home I often use my laptop at home. I use it to communicate with my friends via facebook and zalo, and other social networks, and, get information such as effective English learning method, cooking recipe, and daily news. In addition, I enjoy watching movies and listening to music by my computer. I bought that one which I am using about a year ago, and gave an old one for my mother. The new one is much better than the old one, for example, the screen is bigger, and the speed of processing is faster. I think the most important point of laptop is that I can bring it easily and get information everywhere. I also have a smartphone, but in my opinion, laptop is more useful than a smartphone. The difference between laptop and smartphone is that the quantity of tasks which I can do at the same time. While a smartphone can only do one thing on one screen, a computer can do many things on the same condition. Besides, I can operate laptop easily than a smartphone because laptop is operated with mouse. My laptop is necessary for my life because I get a lot of information and do various activities by computer. If I didn't have that one, it would be much harder to live and communicate now.
Topic 4: Describe restaurent – I would like to talk about a fast food restaurant that I really enjoy going to. The restaurant is called McDonald’s, and it is located in a road called Cong Hoa Road in Cam Giang, which is quite close to where I’m living at the moment. Normally it takes me only 5 minutes to walk to the restaurant. – I go to McDonald’s quite often actually, because I’m very lazy to cook, and I’m really bad at cooking to be honest. I would say that I come to McDonald’s around 3 to 4 times a week, and most of the times I go there for lunch after finishing my morning lessons. – The main type of food that is served in McDonald’s is burgers, and it has a very famous product which is a burger called the “Big Mac”. There are several different types of burgers, from cheese burgers to beef burgers and also those that have chicken. Beef burgers are my favourite type. Also, the restaurant offers very nice ice creams. – I think the main reason why I like McDonald’s is because I find the food there very tasty. And the prices are quite cheap compared to Burger King, for example. Another reason is that the staff members at the restaurant are incredibly friendly. Every time I eat at McDonald’s, I feel satisfied with the food and the services. Topic 5: I have a lot of friends, but Tan is one of my closest friends, I first met him at university. He comes from Kim Dong District, Hung Yen province. He is the person who can share all kinds of difficulties and happiness in life. Not only is he helpful ,but also he is intelligent. He is also good at both teaching English and using computers. I first met him when we were at Hai Duong teachers' training colleague. Although we are living far from each other, I often contact with him by email, chatting, or phone calls .Sometimes, on special occasions I come along his family and so does he. We often talk to each other about our family, hobbies and work .We are really goodfriends Topic 6: Describe you have visted in your country which is famous for ít beauty
Last summer, I was lucky to have a chance to visit Sa Pa with my colleagues. It took us 10 hours by train and 1 hour by car to get there. I was very surprised at the cool weather and magnificent views there. Sa Pa is in Lao Cai province and it is near China. It is very famous for its cool weather in the summer and falling snow in the winter. Be sides, Sa Pa has some local special food which attracts a lot of tourists every year. In Sa Pa, I visited some famous places such as Bac waterfall, Ham Rong mountain with some flower gardens. Sa Pa made a great impression on me and may be I will never forget this trip Topic 7: Describe hometown I was born and raised in Ho Chi Minh city which is located in the Southern part of Vietnam. It is a metropolitan area with millions of dwellers. As a matter of fact, I believe it is the most populated city in Vietnam. Ho Chi Minh City is your typical metropolitan city. The city is open 24-7, and is home to many cafes and restaurants serving food from all around the world. The traffic is dizzying and life happens at
full-speed. It has all the entertainment services young people look for. Entertainment centers as well as beautiful landscapes in this city could be easily be found. I like the city’s dynamic lifestyle: young and busy. It attracts me and people from every walks of life thanks to its open atmosphere, a practical attitude, a mix culture, a rapid rhythm….the city never sleeps. This city provides everyone so many opportunities to build up their careers, especially young people who want to build a brilliant social position. For the moment, I am quite happy living here, but sometimes I really want to live in a place with a lower cost of living and leisurely pace of life. Ho Chi Minh City always makes me get in the rat race which sometimes annoys me because I prefer a sense of community. That is why I usually close down a weekend, and visit some places on the outskirt of the city like Vung Tau. Ho Chi Minh city has a lot of tourist attractions which are really worth coming. Thanks to convenient bus routes, I can get tourists to travel around where I live. Visitors will be really keen on activities in the heart of the city such as the fair, art exhibition, and so on Topic 8 Decribe the city you would like to come There are lots of famous cities all over the world.

Secondly, if you're good at english, you can communicate with foreigners and will benefit you one day when you need a good job. Finally, it's easy to understand English books. Thanks to English, I can know many information because I have to look for new word on the Internet or translate into Vietnamese. Thanks to that, I can improve my level.English is very interesting and great. I love it and I will continues it in the future.As you can see English is useful in life. All of us study it in everyday situations and activities. The language is quite simple and logic. I use it all the time. This is why I like English and it is my favourite subject in school.

Today, I am going to tell you about my favourite season. Honestly, I love all the seasons but I think my favourite is spring. Usually, it starts at the end of December in our country and lasts till the middle of March. The weather in Vietnam is the best during spring because you will not suffer from the excessive heat of summer or the freezing wind of winter. The temperature is tolerable both day and night. One of the best things about spring is that, during this poetic season, nature displays itself in beautiful green and flowers are noticed everywhere. Fruit trees, such as cherry and apricot trees are in full blossom, and colourful flowers such as daffodils and marigolds bloom in parks and gardens. The sounds of spring are wonderful too. A typical spring day will begin when some birds start their morning chorus as they look for a mate. We also celebrate Tet, one of the most anticipated holidays by the Vietnamese people. This is an occasion for pilgrimages, family reunions and many festivals. Parties full of delicious traditional dishes are the main theme for the whole holiday of Tet. I am of the opinion that different kinds of weather can affect people’s health. Even among those in the prime of health, an excessively hot or cold day can lead to illness or injury, let alone the elderly, who can be more susceptible to extreme weather conditions. Weather can also make a huge impact on people’s lives. Obviously, the weather dictates what you are going to wear for the day, often depending on the time of year. Also, winter snow storms in Western countries can cancel school or make your morning commute a hassle. Topic 16:Talk about future job Today, it is not easy to choose a career. Hundreds of students pass various examinations every year and compete with one another for positions in the various professions which are not so many as there are applicants. I would, however, like to choose teaching as my career. Teaching is an interesting career for several reasons. As a teacher I can learn many things, especially if I teach to an udder-secondaryschool. If I teach History or English, for example, I have to read many books to make my teaching lessons more interesting to my pupils. Thus, I can acquire more knowledge of the subjects that I teach than what I can learn from the class text books. It is indeed afact that a teacher learns a lot from the class text books; but that is hardly enough to make the teacher’s lessons interesting to pupils. Topic 17: As for the girl , longing to find his berth firm that has become increasingly come to expect more sacred . A wedding took place is the end of a long period of mutual understanding , as well as to mark the start of a new life with the joy and challenges ahead . The past the 1st of May , I was fortunate to attend such a ceremony - her wedding Linda - the beautiful girl with blue eyes. Around 10:00 a.m we gathered for departure preparation . No one told anyone but my kids always look for the best costume , most polite countenance so radiant with joy . On arriving, we walked into orderly queues Acts regulations, and quickly found their seats. After her parents' speech bride groom bride has donated a special gift, it is an awkward kiss, hastily. We handed sent congratulations to her happiness, she welcomed with a bright
smile and heartfelt thanks sentence. End of the party, we've taken a lot of pictures with her.Car wheels slowly turned, looked at the new couple is watching us. "She must be happy, have fun!"
Topic 18 I was lucky to have a good chance to visit Thailand last summer. This country is in the South East Asia and it's not very far from our country. It only took me four hours to get there by plane. I was really attracted by beautiful views and churches there. However, the most interesting thing that made a great impression on me is Thailand food. I must say that I like Thailand food very much,it's really tasty. Furthermore, I also attended some cultural activities there.I think it's a memorable journey and I hope I'll go there again one day
