Chủ đề “Emotion” rất phổ biến trong kỳ thi IELTS vì cảm xúc thường hay liên quan đến những khía cạnh khác của đời sống, ví dụ những câu hỏi như: “Bạn sẽ làm gì để hạn chế những cảm xúc tiêu cực như áp lực?”, “Thời tiết có ảnh hưởng gì đến cảm xúc của bạn không?” hoặc “Bạn sẽ cảm thấy như thế nào nếu như bạn có cơ hội gặp thần tượng của mình?” Chính vì vậy hãy chú ý theo dõi và dắt túi những từ vựng liên quan đến chủ đề đối lập nhau, đó là “Happiness” và “Stress” để ghi nhớ thật nhiều từ hay trong chủ đề lớn “Emotion” nhé!

Part 2

Describe an activity or an event that made you happy. (Mô tả một hoạt động hoặc sự kiện làm bạn cảm thấy hạnh phúc)

Sample answer

Vocabulary

(Answer) Today I’m gonna talk about a happy event which occurred recently. Honestly, I’m a huge fan of hiphop dance. Ever since I was young, dancing has always been part and parcel of my life and I have got a kick out of performing on stage. Without any doubt, most of my memorable moments have something to do with dancing.

(Example) One of those just happened a couple of weeks ago and I still recall it vividly. It was when my dance team, decided to sign up for a popular dance competition held in Hanoi. We were all determined to create an impressive and unique performance. However, things started to fall apart when unexpected conflicts occurred among us. What was even more shocking is that one of us decided to leave because he couldn’t bear the situation at that time. And it is that moment when I felt a strong urge to make everyone sit down and tackle the situation. This is also a golden chance for everybody to get to know more about each other. We talked about our feelings, how we wanted to overcome those difficulties together and how much we wanted this performance to be delivered in the best version of itself.

Luckily, everything was settled down and things went by smoothly during the last week before the show. And you know what… Although we didn’t win, it was still a rewarding experience to me because I was given the opportunity to deeply understand my friends and my team. And at the end of the day, standing and shinning together on stage is what truly matters.

Part 3                          

Do you think people who have more talent are happier than others? (Bạn có nghĩ những người có tài năng thì hạnh phúc hơn những người khác không?)

Sample answer

Vocabulary

(Answer) I think talent bears little relation to happiness. There are a number of examples of renowned singers or actresses who are talented but do not lead a happy life at all. (Example) They may resort to drugs or even commit suicide to escape from the pressure that they encounter. However, there are people who are not so talented but still have a happy life with their family. In short, being more talented doesn’t mean having a happier life.

(Answer) Well, I would like to talk about a terrible day when I was a freshman in the university. Actually, I overslept on the day that I had to take the first test. It was the worst feeling you know!

(Reason) I was so busy with my study as the final exams were coming. I had been cramming for the exams for weeks before the test date. Therefore, the night before my test, I was so tired that I forgot to set my alarm clock and the next morning I overslept as a result. (Example) When I got up, I was sweating and felt so scared since I knew that I was late. I was crying my eyes out while rushing to the exam room. I was 15 minutes late and my biggest fear was that I would not be allowed to take the test. To make the matter worse, I wasn’t allowed to come into the test hall by the examiner and at that time I was depressed and I thought I would suffer from mental breakdown. That was actually the worst day of my life till now! However, after a few days I received an announcement from the Training Department that I could take the test on a day at the end of that month. I was on cloud nine and relieved that I could still continue the study in the university. Although it is quite hard at that time, that memory is one of the most unforgettable period of time in my student life.
