Speaking: staying up late

1. Do you usually stay up late?

          Yes, I am. I think I’m a night owl and staying up late has become one of my habits. In fact, I’m more productive and creative when I study or work in the evening or even at night. I guess this is the case since I can take advantage of the quietness and peacefulness of the night to get things done.

2. When was the last time you stayed up late? Why?

          As I have mentioned, going to sleep late is one of my habits so I do it almost everyday. So the last time I stayed up late was yesterday to revise and prepare for the exam.

3. Did you like staying up late when you were a child?          Oh yes, it used to be my dream when I was young but my parents didn’t allow me to do that. They are pretty strict and want me to stick to a healthy sleeping habit.

Luyện speaking part 1. Topic: crowded place and animal

Part 1

What kinds of places are crowded?

Almost everything in my city! However, I would say especially the streets. For one, people really like spending time eating and hanging out on the streets. Secondly, since the old streets are narrow, they tend to become overcrowded with vehicles. Moreover, markets and shopping malls are quite hectic (stressful), as people in my country enjoy shopping.

Do you like to go to crowded places?

Not one bit! I start to feel extremely overwhelmed and want to exit the area immediately. Moreover, it’s unpleasant to be pushed and shoved in overcrowded places. Furthermore, it’s even worse in the summer when people are sweating and have body odor (when your armpits sweat)!


Why do some people like to go to crowded places?

Hmm, well I guess they like the chaos (stress). For some, it’s exciting to watch madness(craziness) unfold around them. Furthermore, I think they like the lively feeling that crowded places carry. Perhaps it’s interesting to those who come from smaller places.


Are there many animals or birds where you live?

I am living in a big city so most of animals I see are pets and some wild birds in the park. My family is also raising a cat which is very adorable. In fact, she is like a friend to me.

How often do you watch programmes or read articles about wild animals?

Well, I have never watched any programmes about wildlife because I rarely have time for TV and also found those rather boring. However, I do know some popular channels like Discovery channel or Geographic Nation.

Have you ever been to a zoo or a wildlife park?

Of course, yes, it used to be my favourite weekend destination when I was a kid. I remember how I was so amused to see a peacock with its colourful feathers or a tiger with its sharp claws. Besides that, it is also the only place for city people like me to observe wild creatures

Would you like to have a job working with animals?

To be honest, .. I have never thought about it… working with animals sounds pretty interesting but it also requires certain skills and knowledge. I imagine I can be a vet in the future, who knows, what can happen
