If I have to decide which mean of transport I like most, it'll be a car. Nowadays it is really necessary for me and my family.
• Firstly, it is safer to drive a car than to ride a motorbike because in a car there are air bags, seat belts, car alarm, etc, that prevent us from being injured if you have an accident. Driving a car at night on a lonely road will safer than riding a motorbike.
• Secondly, you never have to think about the weather (such a rain, sun, storm, and dark at night) when you drive. A car has air-conditioner which helps you to avoid getting wet, dust... so it help to keep you healthy.
• In the third place, a car is comfortable and fast. You can pretty much travel wherever you want whenever you want within your local area, without having to worry about the departure times and delays of the public transport system.
• Furthermore, you will feel comfortable and relaxed with the CD and DVD machines on the car. You can listen music and you have pleasure of driving. When you are tired, you can stop the journey and rest.
• Finally, if you have just the one car between you and your family, it can be possible to share the vehicle between all of the family members thus providing everyone with a mode of transport at all times.

Among the most useful inventions in the last century, I find the computer the most important because of these reasons:

• Second, cooking is my favorite hobby because I'm a woman. Cooking is one way to show my feminine character and to show my responsibility in the family.
• Finally, cooking helps me reduce stress of everyday hard work and makes me relaxed. When I cook, I can forget the problems that I have and just pay attention to the cooking. Maybe, after relaxing, I feel much happier and I can solve my problem.
• In conclusion, cooking is my favorite activity when I have free time.
Topic 4: The advantages of living in the countryside.(Những lợi thế của cuộc sống ở nông thôn)
Living in the countryside is really good for your life because of these reasons:
• First, living in the country can bring you a clean environment. The air is fresher and there are lots of trees, rice fields and rivers, you can walk on the fields or along the rivers to enjoy the clean and fresh air there in the early morning.
• Second, living in the countryside is cheaper than in the city because people there have lower income and don't have the habit of spending a lot of money. If you live in the country, you can save a lot of money.
• Finally, people in the country are more friendly and opener than people in the city because they live near each other. People live together in a small village so they can talk countryside can have festivals and you can join and fell very happy.

Topic 5: The disadvantages of living in the city.(Những khó khăn của cuộc sống ở thành phố)
Many people find it difficult and unpleasant to live in the city because of these reasons:
• First, the air in the city is getting more and polluted because the traffic is so heavy, the city roads are in bad conditions and the population is really big. There are fewer and fewer trees, lakes and rivers.
• Second, the cost of living is much higher than in the rural areas. People have to spend more money on food, drink, clothes and other activities like traveling and entertainment, while the salary has not been much improved.
• Finally, life in the city is more dangerous than in the countryside because of night clubs, discotheques, casinos... City people are easily attracted by social evils such as drinking, drug or gambling, etc. So, there are more crimes because some people don't want to work but only want money to play.
• In short, living in the city has many disadvantages so people have to struggle a lot to survive.
Topic 6: Talk about your weekend activities.(Nói về hoạt động cuối tuần của bạn)
Weekend time is my favorite time in the week because I can enjoy myself and do many relaxing activities I like.
• In the morning, after a relaxing breakfast, I often call some of my friends to ask them to go shopping with me. We spend the whole morning going shopping and then have lunch in a restaurant in the center of Hanoi.
• Then, I come back home for a nap. In the afternoon, I often go swimming with my neighbor if the weather is hot. In winter I go jogging in the central park instead. I usually have dinner with my family during weekend, so we can talk with each other and share our stories. After dinner, I sometime listen to music or surf the net to chat with friends or check emails. I usually do not go to bed late because I will have lots of work on Monday.
• In short, living in the city has many disadvantages so people have to struggle a lot to survive.

People may have different hobbies such as listening to music, watching T.V, dancing. playing games or collecting things. My hobby is to read books.
• I enjoy reading many types of books, but my favorite is detective. I like reading stories about Sherlock Holmes of author Conan Doyle. I often read books in the evening after I finish preparing things for the next day's work.
• When I have free time, I often go to bookstores to look for new books. Once a week, I go to the city library to read there. I sometimes read books on line if I cannot get hard copies of the books I want.
• Books help me relax a lot after days of hard work. Thanks to books, I can broaden my knowledge and learn new things.
Topic 8: The most interesting place you have been to.(Các địa điểm thú vị nhất mà bạn đã từng đến.)
I have been to many places in Vietnam, but the most interesting place that I always remember is Da Nang, the beautiful coastal city in Vietnam. It's wonderful to me because of these reasons:
• First, the scenery in Da Nang is ideal for us to go sunbathing. We can swim in the blue and clear sea water or do sunbathing on the soft sand beach under the yellow and warm sunshine. The air is so fresh and pure.
• Second, the local sea food are fresh, delicious but not expensive. For example, tourists can enjoy different kinds of seafood such as crab, prawn, lobster, seashell, etc. Also, the people there are friendly, sociable and polite.
• Third, there are many interesting activities to do beside playing football, tennis on the beach, building sandcastles on the beach or watching the sunrise. For example, we can sail on a board trip to the Cu Lao Cham and watch the mountain scenery on the way. Also, we may visit Ba Na Hill.
• For these reasons, Da Nang has always been one of my favorite tourist attractions.
Topic 9: The importance of learning foreign languages.(Tầm quan trọng của việc học ngoại ngữ.)

• Second, it help us feel confident when we travel abroad. We can talk very easily with people in other countries and learn a lot from them. We can use the language to work and do business without an interpreter.
• Finally, though a foreign language we learn we can learn more about the people of that country, we know a lot about their culture and society and customs and traditions. We can become friends of many people so our life is more interesting.

Topic 11: Talk about your favorite television program.
Among many programs and channels available on TV these days such as the current news programs, sport programs, entertaining programs, educational programs and movie programs, etc, I like the program "the World of Animals" most.
This program is usually shown on VTV2 everyday at 8.30 in the evening. It often lasts about 45 minutes. In this program, stories of the life of many animals in the world are told in a very lively way. For example, people can watch films about monkeys, snakes, tigers, insects, birds, sea turtles, sharks etc and even the penguins and the polar bears in the far North. While watching these films, I find the everyday life activities and habits of these animals very interesting and full mysteries. In addition, I also learn that it is very important to protect these animals and their living environments because they are part of our valuable natural world. Watching this program makes me very well informed and relaxed after a day of work.
Topic 12: Talk about your favorite sport.(Nói về môn thể thao yêu thích của bạn .)
These days, people are practicing many types of sport such as swimming, running, cycling, aerobics, tennis, table tennis, badminton, golf and football, etc. My favorite sport is jogging. Jogging is a simple sport to practice because you don't need any special or expensive equipment like other sports. In fact you just need a good pair of trainers for your self . The most suitable place for jogging is a park or somewhere around a lake near your house. You can also jog on a field or in the forest if you are living in the countryside. For me, I jog for about an hour in the afternoon everyday after work. I usually go jogging alone, but if possible you can ask my family members, friends or neighbors to go with me. While we jog, we often talk and share with each other about everyday life stories, so we feel that we can reduce our stress. After going jogging each day, I feel that I am more relaxed and fit again after a long day of work.
Topic 13: Talk about one of your close friends.(Nói về một trong những người bạn thân của bạn .)
I have had many friends so far, but Thanh Nga is one of my close friends. Nga is about 30 years old and is now working a researcher at an institute in Hanoi. We met each other when we were in the secondary school. During those days, we went to school together everyday, studied in the same class and shared with each other all the joys and sorrow, so we have become close friends since then.
My friend Nga is not very tall, but pretty with long black hair and a nice smile. She is a very sincere, modest and helpful person. She likes painting and painted many pictures. Also, I can still remember that Nga was very good at literature and foreign languages.
We often meet each other when we have time. When we are very busy, we often talk to each other on the phone or we chat on the Internet. Whenever we meet, we often go to see other friends, go shopping or sit in a quite place to have coffee. We talk about our life and share with each other our good news or problems and see if we can help each other. Nga is really a good friend of mine, a friend for life.
Topic 14: Talk about your house/flat.(Nói về ngôi nhà / căn hộ của bạn)
I live in a house in Hanoi. The house is in a small and quiet street in Cau Giay district of Hanoi. It takes about half an hour to go to the city center. The house was built 5 years ago. It isn't a big house and has two floors.
In my house there are 4 main rooms: a living room, a dining rooms, two bedrooms. Besides, we have a kitchen, a bathroom and a toilet.
We have a little but pretty garden; my family often spend our free time there to grow plant and vegetables. Next to the garden there is a small yard where my children often play after school.
In my house, I like the living room is my favorite one. This room was painted light green, so we feel very pleasant. In this room, there is a tea table, a sofa and a television. On the wall there is a couple of oil paintings. After dinner, our family often spend time together talking to each other or watching a favorite TV program. We often receive our guests in this room. I love my house. Everyday when I come back home from work, I have a warm feeling of being together with my whole family.
Topic 15: Talk about your job.(Nói về công việc của bạn .)
I am now working as a senior engineer in a company in Hanoi. My company name is ABC Company. I have had this job for more than 10 years. In my job, I am in charge of managing our department's activities such as research development, technical supervision and maintenance, etc. Besides, we also need to corporate our work with other departments in the company in order to run the company's business smoothly.
To do this job besides my university degree, I have had many training classes in project management, product development, marketing, etc...
In addition, the skills required for this job are communication, time management, teamwork and presentation skills, etc...
I really like my job because I am able to apply the knowledge and skills of the filed I studied in my work. In addition, I have a flexible working time, so I can make full use of the time in the office and have time for research. Also, I am lucky to work with a very active and supportive staff. One thing I don't like about this job is that I often have to travel, so I sometimes don't have time for my family. I am planning to further my study to get a doctor degree.
