(Where? When?) As it is entirely located in the tropical belt, Vietnam receives quite a great amount of precipitation every year However, the part that records the highest rainfall is the northern section of Central Vietnam when the northeast monsoon arrives, between September and December This region can also be affected by the typhoon season in the Western Pacific, which can see severe storms lashing the coast from August to November Is there any part of Vietnam where it doesn’t rain much? (Where?) In general, I guess the driest place in Vietnam might possibly be Ninh Thuan province, which is situated on the south-central coast The weather there is quite extreme with a lot of wind as well as a hot and dry atmosphere during the year Also, there is no winter here, and the average temperature is considerably higher than most other parts of the country When (in what month/season) does it rain most in your hometown? Well, currently, I am living in Hanoi, which is located in the northern part of Vietnam I suppose that in the north, the rainy season comes during the summer months, extending from mid-April to mid-October This is because during this time of the year, the city’s climate is influenced by the southwest monsoon, which brings moist air from the oceans to the land and causes torrential rain What about the other parts of Vietnam? (In which season does it rain most in other parts of Vietnam?) Well, the southern part of Vietnam, especially the Mekong Delta, gets plenty of rain and hot, humid weather during the southwest monsoon from April to September, with June and July being especially wet Meanwhile, the centre of the country receives the most rainfall between September and December, during which time the region suffers from severe storms and flooding Can you remember any time when it rained particularly heavily in your hometown? (When?) Yes, of course I suppose it was about a year or so ago, when we had several days of torrential rain, almost non-stop, and so the whole of my neighbourhood got flooded You Written by Ngoc Bach Để cập nhật viết có -> truy cập website ngocbach.com Group IELTS Ngoc Bach: https://www.facebook.com/groups/ieltsngocbach/[Type text] Page know, the water was, like, up to my knees, and so the traffic came to a complete standstill So, yeah, that was probably the worst time I can remember Does rain ever affect transportation in your hometown? (How?) Yeah, for sure As a matter of fact, rain often causes severe traffic congestion, especially when there is heavy downpour People should expect to be stuck for hours in a traffic jam I’m not exactly sure why, but it’s possibly because vehicles tend to move slower in the rain Vocabulary:  Tropical belt: [noun phrase] area between the Tropics of Cancer and the Tropics of Capricon / vành đai nhiệt đới Example: The northern and southern populations were naturally separated by the warm tropical belts in the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans  Precipitation: [noun] rain, snow, sleet, or hail that falls to the ground / mưa Example: In places where the warmer air extends to the ground, the precipitation will fall as rain  Monsoon: [noun] a seasonal prevailing wind in the region of South and Southeast Asia, blowing from the southwest between May and September and bringing rain (the wet monsoon), or from the northeast between October and April (the dry monsoon ) / gió mùa Example: We get only very little rain during the southwest monsoon  Typhoon: [noun] a tropical storm in the region of the Indian or western Pacific oceans / bão Example: Severe tropical cyclones correspond to the hurricanes or typhoons of other parts of the world  Lash: [verb] to move suddenly and swiftly; rush, dash, or flash / qua, tàn phá Example: Strong winds and storms are lashing the east coast of the USA  Province: [noun] a principal administrative division of certain countries or empires / quận Example: The school is in a poor district of the province and students often go without the simplest of items, let alone educational funds  Situate: [verb] fix or build (something) in a certain place or position / đặt ở, nằm Example: The pilot light is usually situated at the front of the boiler Written by Ngoc Bach Để cập nhật viết có -> truy cập website ngocbach.com Group IELTS Ngoc Bach: https://www.facebook.com/groups/ieltsngocbach/[Type text] Page  Extreme: [adjective] reaching a high or the highest degree; very great / cực, Example: There is extreme cold in Hanoi during the winter  Atmosphere: [noun] the envelope of gases surrounding the earth or another planet / khơng khí, bầu khí Example: In dry weather the electric potential in the atmosphere is normally positive relative to the earth, and increases with the height  Rainy season: [noun phrase] the time during which there is a large amount of rainfall / mùa mưa Example: The traffic often gets congested during rainy season  Moist: [adjective] slightly wet; damp or humid / ẩm ướt Example: The air was moist and heavy after the storm passed  Torrential: [adjective] (of rain) falling rapidly and in copious quantities / chảy mạnh, (mưa) trút xuống Example: The rest of the day torrential rain fell, the grass becoming a bog, the river turning to a lake  Come to a complete standstill: [idiom] to slow down and finally stop; to stop entirely / dừng lại, trì trệ Example: As the strike began, the production line came to a complete standstill  Congestion: [noun] the state of being overcrowded / tắc nghẽn Example: The new bridge should ease congestion in the area  Downpour: [noun] a heavy rainfall / mưa lớn Example: A sudden downpour had filled the gutters and drains Plans and goals What is your plan for the future and when will you start?

(Why?) Written by Ngoc Bach Để cập nhật viết có -> truy cập website ngocbach.com Group IELTS Ngoc Bach: https://www.facebook.com/groups/ieltsngocbach/[Type text] Page I’d prefer living in the countryside, mostly because I want to experience the tranquility there Another reason is because the traffic and air pollution in some big cities are almost unbearable, and I seriously don’t want to get stuck with all the problems of city life Vocabulary:  Agency [noun] (đại lí/mơi giới) a business that represents one group of people when dealing with another group e.g Mannya was representing a private legal consulting agency at the hearing  Capital [noun] (vốn) wealth in the form of money or other assets owned by a person or organization or available for a purpose such as starting a company or investing e.g They all need capital to meet their needs for expansion and technical development  Tranquility [noun] (sự bình) the quality or state of being tranquil; calm e.g The main reason people come to visit the countryside is because of its beauty and tranquility  Unbearable [adjective] (không thể chịu đựng được) too unpleasant or painful to cope with or accept e.g At night, the noise in the street is unbearable and I’m unable to sleep Weather What’s the weather like today? It’s freezing, oh my God… but luckily it hasn’t rained today It was raining all last week… I was soaked to the skin whenever I went out to go to work even though I was wearing a raincoat, and the rain made it even colder! What’s the weather (usually) like in your hometown?

Cool weather It makes me feel really comfortable and ready to go out any time of the day Just imagine sitting in the park, reading a book in the sunshine with the wind gently blowing through your hair Isn’t that awesome?

Rather than the weather forecasts shown on TV, I often look at the ones on my smartphone – you know, there’re some applications that help predict the weather conditions for up to a week!

Why? No, I’m not really keen on robots because I’m kind of a low-tech person Also, a robot is a luxury technological product that I have never been able to afford, so I don’t feel like I want to know much about them Would you like robots to work in your home? If I had a lot of money, I’d like to have a robot in my home As I’m always occupied with my work, I need a robot to help me chores and prepare meals whenever I come home at night That’d be great! Would you want to take a car where a robot is the driver? No, I wouldn’t want a robot to drive my car It would be too dangerous and risky for me to take a drive with a robot Because a robot is programmed by humans, I don’t think that it can handle road incidents quickly and efficiently enough to ensure safety Will robots replace human beings in the workplace completely? Well, I have to admit that robots play an important part in our modern life However, they will never completely replace the roles of humans at work as they are incapable of feeling emotions and thinking deeply like humans For example, in a conference, people have to discuss problems in great detail before giving solutions and making decisions, but robots lack the capacity to respond to all questions instantly and effectively Vocabulary: low-tech (adjective) not using the most recent equipment or methods (nói người biết cơng nghệ) Ex: It is low-tech economy without modern machinery or techniques luxury (adjective) very comfortable and expensive, which not everyone can afford (xa xỉ) Ex: They are staying in a luxury 5-star hotel in Paris afford (verb) to be able to buy or something because you have enough money or time (có đủ khả mua hay làm thứ gì) Ex: I don't know how he can afford a new car on his salary chores ( collocation) housework (làm việc nhà) Ex: I'll go shopping when I've done my chores handle (verb) to manage, deal with sth or sb (xử lý) Ex: My wife handles all our household expenses Written by Ngoc Bach Để cập nhật viết có -> truy cập website ngocbach.com Group IELTS Ngoc Bach: https://www.facebook.com/groups/ieltsngocbach/[Type text] Page incident (noun) an event that is either unpleasant or unusual (sự việc xảy bất ngờ) Ex: A youth was seriously injured in a shooting incident on Saturday night to be incapable of verb + ing: be unable to something (khơng có khả làm việc gì) Ex: He seems to be incapable of walking past a music shop without going in and buyinganother CD 8.capacity (noun) the ability to perform sth (năng lực) Ex: Ask John to help us – he has a great capacity for hard work Shopping Are there many shops near your home?

Of course, I enjoy swimming a lot Shopping activities relieve my stress, especially when feel overloaded with work In my opinion, it is also a chance for us to compare the quality of goods and acquire a better taste in things Who usually does the shopping in your home? Well, it may be my mother Every morning, she goes to the store to choose hygienic and fresh food for our family’s meals Her favorite pastime is buying second-hand clothes in small markets Sometimes, when I’m free, I go with her to a big supermarket to purchase basic necessities like shampoos or soaps How often you buy something in a shop?

Among a host of historical figures, the one that strikes me as the most impressive must be Nelson Mandela I first read about him in a history textbook and was deeply touched by his untiring perseverance Born in 1918, Nelson Mandela is a politician and philanthropist who devoted his lifetime to campaign for the eradication of apartheid In South Africa, apartheid was a system that segregated and discriminated against people of different races The policy of separate development benefited only the whites in terms of educational opportunities and decent social services, which led to countless public outcries for a revolution Initially, the movements were brutally suppressed by the army Nelson Mandela, who started as an activist, played a critical role in the abolition of apartheid, leading campaigns and inspiring people to fight for justice Even though he was imprisoned for 27 years, Nelson Mandela continued his mission right after he was released His efforts were rewarded: after fierce struggles and continuous negotiations, apartheid laws were permanently repealed People were no longer treated on the grounds of a colour bar Numerous positive socio-economic changes also came along Nelson Mandela was awarded a Nobel Peace Prize in 1993 in recognition of his endeavors to unify South Africa The life of Nelson Mandela has taught me a profound lesson: “It always seems impossible until it’s done” Overcoming all the ostensibly insurmountable obstacles, Nelson Mandela proved that as long as you persist in pursuing your goal, you will definitely achieve it

letter that was sent to me a month ago It was from my dear sister, who was attending a prestigious university in Porto, Portugal She sent me this hand-written while she was enjoying a trip around Europe during her mid-term break In her letter, she said that each country she had visited gave her a lasting impression While Portugal never failed to deliver a sense of tranquility, Holland amazed her with breathtaking scenes and its varieties of tulip flowers and wind turbines Additionally, she was charmed by Paris’s glory and romanticism, and she was so excited because her dream to see the Eiffel Tower was finally accomplished The weather there was also very nice, and the exquisite cuisines of Western countries completely satisfied her appetite With the assistance of numerous images her description was more vivid, which gave me further insight into foreign nations I derived a lot of pleasure from this letter because this is the first time I got the chance to know more about her life in another country since she left our home For one thing, it is a real relief to know that she could integrate well into an exotic environment and still achieve a high level of academic performance This would benefit her personal development and career advancement in the future For another, by going to many popular countries, she has partly fulfilled her burning ambition to travel around the world This letter will act as an incentive to make me study with more diligence to be as successful as her VOCABULARY: unforgettable [adj]: you cannot forget it: quên Eg: The cham pionshi p will be an

manufactured by Apple – the wellknown technology giant The ad was broadcasted prior to the launching of the product in order to provoke curiosity among consumers, especially loyal users of the brand The advertisement didn’t convey any meaningful message but was rather designed to highlight all the updated features of iPhone compared to previous models in the series Besides, the commercial wasn’t directed towards any specific age group or gender, so the target audience was quite large As soon as the commercial was aired, the news about the new product immediately made front page headlines and became the leading article of many technology websites, magazines and online Since Apple was already one of the most reputable technology companies with a high level of brand awareness, it didn’t take much time for the publicity to circulate The advertisement generated a craze for iPhone 7, everyone was talking about it on the Internet People were eager to see how the latest model would differ from earlier ones as well as to compare it with the latest smartphones of other respected brands such as Samsung or Sony Để update đề Speaking, Writing Các bạn click join group IELTS Ngoc Bach
