IELTS Speaking Sample Part 1 - HISTORY

Updated: Oct 17, 2023

Well, I don’t really like learning this subject. The thing is there are a lot of dates and events to remember and, you know, back in high school, history was a nightmare to me as everything just went over my head and I often forgot them during exams.


go over sb’s head: khó hiểu, khó vào đầu

the thing is: vấn đề ở chỗ là…

As I said, I don’t have a good memory, so I always find it hard to recollect some historical events. But the one that springs to mind right now is the Independence Day of Vietnam. This is a very special day for many Vietnamese as it marks the birth of our country when Uncle Ho delivered the Declaration of Independence to the world.


recollect (v) = recall (v): nhớ lại

the one that springs to mind (v)= the one that pops into one’s mind: điều xuất hiện trong đầu

mark (v): đánh dấu

deliver the Declaration of Independence (v): đọc bản Tuyên Ngôn Độc Lập

Although I find it hard to remember facts and figures, I do think that history is extremely important. By this I mean we really need to have an insight into our past in order to appreciate what we have today and get more motivated to strive for a better future.


facts and figures: số liệu

by this I mean: ý của tui là

have an insight into something: hiểu biết thêm về cái gì đó

strive (v) + for: cố gắng / phấn đấu vì điều gì đó
