speaking part 2: shopping for clothes

Describe a place where you go shopping for clothes

You should say:

  • Where you usually go
  • how often you shop for clothes
  • how you choose your clothes
  • and explain why you go there

(presented by Thay Anh IELTS)

Shopping is my hobby. so I often spend my free time doing shopping. I  used to buy clothes from various stores, from small ones to shopping malls. But now I am really interested in buying clothes from a  store called “ABC” that is about 1 km away from my home. 

Since I Knew this store, I  often go there twice or three times a month to get my beautiful clothes. You know, I think this store quite satisfies my need because it provides a wide range of clothes, materials, sizes so I can choose outfits that suit me well.

To get suitable clothes, I will choose style first.  I am a young person so dynamic clothes will fit me best. Next, I pay attention to material. I love leather most because it makes me more masculine. 

Besides, Prices at the store are affordable, only 20-30 dollars.   Shop assistants here are very friendly and hospitable. They always help me find the clothes that I very love. I also like the guarantee program of the shop. After bringing clothes home, If I do not like them anymore, in ten days I can bring them back to the store and get full 100% cashback. I think this store is my best choice when buying clothes in my city (Thay Anh IELTS)  

speaking part 3: Air pollution


Air pollution is due to various causes, such as burning fossil fuels and emission of hazardous pollutants released by factories and automobiles, e.g Carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide.


  • Air pollution causes many health problems, such as respiratory diseases, eye irritation, and premature newborn babies.
  • Air pollution can destroy the ozone layer that protects us from the harmful rays of the sun and consequently, air pollution contributes to global warming.
  • Air pollution damages natural resources and leads to ecosystem degradation and poor air quality.


  • Air pollution can be reduced by implementing energy efficiency programmes, introducing vehicle emission standard, expanding car replacement programmes
  • Extending environmentally-friendly means of transport, expanding transport facilities: park-and-ride-terminal, providing carpool facilities
  • Regular check-ups for cars should be obligatory
  • Using more efficient engines and modern exhaust-filtering devices
  • Using cleaner fuels
  • Developing tree planting programmes

Discussion questions:

Why is air pollution a global health concern?

Because air pollution creates many health problems that would reduce people’s life quality all over the world. Furthermore, air pollution contributes to the damage of the Ozone layer without which we cannot survive. Last but not least, it also destroys the habitat of wild animals, affecting negatively to ecology system.

2. Do you think anti-pollution measures should be a high priority?

Yes absolutely, because air pollution is global health concern. I think people all over the world and their governments should prioritize the programmes for acting against air pollution. All nations need hand in hand to build a world without air pollution.

3. What can large cities do to improve their air quality?

Firstly, They need to carry out energy efficiency programmes, like introducing vehicle emission standards. So a large number of cars which produce excessive exhaust fume are not allowed to be on roads.

Secondly, Cities should develop public transportation. This can helps reduce the number of cars and traffic jams.

Finally, Cities encourage citizens to use electric cars that don’t produce exhaust fume.

Thầy a nh hướng dẫn “mẹo” nghe part 1

Sơ lược qua part 1 ( trước gọi là section 1 nhé)

Đoạn hội thoại mô tả cuộc trò chuyện liên quan việc đăng ký, mua sắm dịch vụ gì đó: khách sạn, nhà hàng, sản phẩm…

Part 1 là phần nghe dễ nhất trong 4 phần nghe của IELTS

Bạn Cần trả lời 10 câu liên quan đến nội dung bài nghe như: tên người, số tiền, số điện thoại, tuổi… và một số thông tin khác

Các từ cần điền là từ có nói (đề cập) ở trong bài, không được điền từ ở bên ngoài vào. Trừ vài trường hợp liên quan Anh-Anh và Anh-Mỹ. Ví dụ Có 1 câu đáp án là “Car park” mà bạn đã nghe trong bài. Tuy nhiên bạn cũng có thể điền là “parking lot” . Tốt nhất là điền từ mà mình nghe được các bạn nhé.

Một số mẹo nghe cho part 1 cùng Thầy Anh IELTS

Làm rõ số từ, số cần điền

One word and/or a number: bạn chỉ có thể viết 1 từ, 1 số hoặc 1 từ + 1 số nhé!

Bảng Alphabet

Bài nghe chắc chắn có đánh vần tên nên bạn cần thuộc bảng chữ cái Alphabet nhé và luyện trước nhé.

Tránh phát âm sai H /eɪtʃ/ và 8 /eɪt/ và chú ý sự khác nhau âm đuôi giữa H và 8 nhé. Rất nhiều bạn sẽ sai khi phải điền dãy post code như: jeb8fh

Cẩn thận tránh mắc bẫy.

Ví dụ như sau:

Câu hỏi: what is the price of one night at hotel?

Các bạn nghe: The price used to be 200 dollars. But today is our 20th anniversary, so we offer you a 20% sale off. You will be charged 160 dollars instead.

Một số bạn sẽ điền 200, vậy là không đúng nhé. Các bạn chú ý từ khóa màu xanh, và đáp án là 160

-> Nên tốt nhất là điền 2 con số vào nháp rồi cân nhắc nhé (nếu bạn đang phân vân)

Cụm từ đồng nghĩa

Các bạn cần có vốn từ vựng nhất định vì đôi khi bài yêu cầu người nghe phải biết được các cụm từ đồng nghĩa ( điều này rõ nhất ở part 2 trở đi nhé) . Ví dụ

Câu hỏi: where will the meeting be held?

Các bạn nghe: the meeting will be taken place in room 2

Ở đây “held” đồng nghĩa với “taken place”

Các lỗi hay gặp trong bài viết IELTS: 5 lỗi dùng từ (Thầy Anh IELTS)

Qua việc chữa bài, Thầy Anh IELTS phát hiện ra các bạn học sinh của thầy sai nhiều lỗi khác nhau, trong bài này thầy chỉ ra lỗi “dùng từ” nhé!

1. Lỗi thiếu (thừa) s khi chia động từ

Đây là lỗi kinh điển, kể cả các bạn học khá nhé. Các bạn cần ôn lại phần hòa hợp giữa chủ từ và động từ để viết chính xác hơn nhé.

2. Lỗi thừa s khi viết số (number)

Có bạn viết câu như sau:

Population of Vietnam is nearly 100 millions people in 2020.

Chú ý sau “million” không có “s” em nhé

Viết lại Population of Vietnam is nearly 100 million people in 2020.

Tượng tự cho hàng trăm, hàng nghìn nhé đều không có “s” đằng sau nhé.

3. Lỗi khi chia phân từ hai

Lỗi này do một số bạn chưa phân biệt được câu chủ động, bị động hoặc không thuộc động từ bất quy tắc.

The sales are increase quickly in 2000.

Phân tích:

  1. Câu này viết theo bị động (thay vì chủ động)
  2. Nếu là bị động thì increase lại không chia phân từ 2

Sửa lại: the sales increase quickly in 2000

4. Lỗi Sử dụng trạng từ và tính từ lẫn lộn

Coffee production has a substantially growth in the first five years.

Phân tích: Trước Growth cần dùng tính từ, câu trên substantially là trạng từ

Viết lại: Coffee production has a substantial growth in the first five years.

5. Một số từ thông dụng hay viết thiếu s

Besides (ngoài ra) hay viết thiếu “s” là beside (next to)

Tượng tự, một số từ hay viết thiếu s như: Nowadays, always, three times…

Task 2: financial support for elderly people

Government shouldn’t have to provide care or financial support for elderly people because it is the responsibility of each person to prepare for retirement and support him or herself. 

To what extent do you agree or disagree with this opinion? 


Nowadays, the world population is aging, and this puts pressure on society. Therefore, it is said that each person should have a financial plan after their retirement and the Government doesn’t have to aid retired people. I disagree with this idea and in this essay, I will present my view.

Firstly, When people retire, they don’t have a salary anymore. Furthermore, Elderly people’s health is not as good as young people. They may easily be able to have aging-related-diseases such as heart stroke, cancer…Provided that they were sick, they would have to pay a lot of money for high hospital expenses. However, most elderly can not afford this finance if the Government does not pay for them.

Secondly, the Government should play an important role in supporting the elderly. When retired people were still young, they were working and paying taxes for the Government. Moreover, They devoted themself for the development as well as the wealth of society. Therefore, It is true that  they certainly get deserving allowances which belong to them.

Last but not least, Each person needs to have a backup plan for their future.  If The Government is unlikely to help them, for example, because of budget deficiency, The elderly will still  have to care for themself instead of expecting the Government’s help.

In summary, the Government should have to aid its retirees for their great contributions. Despite the fact that each person also should  prepare financially, so they assure a decent life after they stop working. (251 words)
