Speaking Part 1 topic Work/Job

Một video chia sẻ từ Ms Mia 8.5 Speaking:

1. How do you spend your work day? 

I usually start off my day with a few meetings with my team or my superiors. Then, my responsibilities vary from day to day. Sometimes, I’d spend the whole day filming different kinds of content. Other days, most of my time is dedicated to administrative work. 

2. Is it better to work in the morning or in the afternoon? 

Personally, I find that I’m more productive in the morning, especially after I’ve had my coffee and breakfast. My energy is usually the lowest around 4-5 in the afternoon, so for me, it’s better to work during the early hours.

3. What do you do to improve your productivity? 

I feel that caffeine really boosts my energy and productivity at work. Whenever I feel tired and sluggish, I just order a big cup of latte and then I can work efficiently again! 

6. Do you work or study? (Do you work or are you a student?)

Well, I have just finished college and currently I’m working as a freelance copywriter. This is what I love to do ever since I was a college student. I have a passion for digital marketing, and how blessed I am to have a job that gives me pay cheques and the freedom to create, without having to spend days in an office.

7. Do you enjoy your work? (Do you like your job?)

Yes, very much. Although the money is not much, I believe that it sets the foundation for me to become a better marketer in the future. Furthermore, I get to improve my English constantly. What I appreciate the most is that I can work wherever and whenever I want with no strings attached.

8. Why did you choose to do that kind of work?

I chose to be a copywriter because marketing was my major when I was in college. And I have already accumulated some work experience by taking several part-time jobs before I graduated. Furthermore, this job really suits my interest, since I have an affinity for writing and the alike.

9. Is that a popular job in your country?

I don’t really know. I suppose marketing is a popular choice in general, but not a lot of people can develop a passion for copywriting since they think it can be a dull job. In that case, I don’t really blame them though, because having to create similar contents for days can be quite monotonous.

10. Are there anything special about job?

As I have mentioned earlier, what I love about my job the most is that it gives me the freedom to create. Unlike many other office work, I don’t have to spend an entire day in my office, which is pretty cool. My boss, who is very intuiative, actually encourages me to go outside to find some inspirations for my work.

11. Is there another type of job you would like to do?

Besides this, ever since I was a little girl, I have dreamt of becoming a writer, like J.K Rowling, you know. I think literature is one of the strongest media that can reflect all aspects of life. Journalism sounds great too, but I have never been good at photography, so writing books is probably the only other job I would want to do.

12. Would you recommend your current job to other people?

Yes, I would recommend it to everybody who is majoring in Business in general. Copywriting can be stressful sometimes, but I believe that it can enhance your creativity and imagination to a large extent. If you’re good enough, you can be the trend setter for almost anything in the market.

13. What do you like about your job?/ Why did you choose to do that type of work?

Answer: I guess it’s mainly because of the job flexibility & my passion for journalism. To be more specific, this job offers me alternatives to the typical nine-to-five work schedule, enabling me to find a better balance between work and life. Besides, this job gives me opportunities to pursue my dream to become a journalist down the road.


Answer: Well I guess the thing I like most about this job is the salary. I make what I’d consider is a lucrative income, which means not only is it enough to cover my bills, but there’s also some extra to spend on whatever I want. So on payday, I often treat myself to a meal at a high-end restaurant or splurge on a nice shirt.


- Lucrative income: Thu nhập sinh lời

- High-end: the most sophisticated, and typically the most expensive product in a line: tinh vi nhất và thường đắt nhất, hiểu nghĩa cao cấp.

- Splurge on something: to spend a lot of money on someone or something: ý hiểu để chi tiêu rất nhiều tiền vào một ai đó hoặc một cái gì đó.

14.  What do you dislike about your job?

Sometimes I feel dead tired when sitting in front of a computer screen all day long to deal with overwhelming workload.  I mean, I’ve led a sedentary lifestyle which really exerts a negative effect on my physical & mental health & I have had a very hectic schedule, which always keeps me up to my ears in deadlines. Down the road I am yearning for a job that involves dealing with people & makes me feel less stressful.


- Dead tired: exhausted ( Mệt mỏi, kiệt sức)

- All day long: during the entire day (cả ngày dài, suốt cả ngày)

- Overwhelming:  very intense (Áp đảo, rất mãnh liệt)

- Sedentary lifestyle: a type of lifestyle with little or no physical activity (Lối sống ít vận động, chỉ một loại lối sống với ít hoặc không có hoạt động thể chất)

- Hectic: busy (ý chỉ bận rộn)

- Up to my ears in something: busy doing something (ý chỉ bận rộn để làm điều gì)

- Down the road: in the future (thành ngữ ý chỉ trong tương lai)

- Yearn for:  to feel a powerful desire for something (để cảm thấy một mong muốn mạnh mẽ cho một cái gì đó)

15. Is there some other kind of work you would rather do?

Answer:  Actually, I don’t think I’m able to dedicate myself to any other job rather than this one. In fact, to me it’s the experiences and opportunities I can gain that really matters. 

To dedicate to Sth: devote (time or effort) to a particular task or purpose ( ý chỉ cống hiến (thời gian hoặc công sức) cho một nhiệm vụ hoặc mục đích cụ thể)

16. Where do you want to see yourself in 10 years?

Answer:  Well, this question pops into my mind from time to time, but to be honest, I have never managed to have an answer for it. I reckon that 10 years is such a long time and anything could happen, so it is hard to tell from now. 

17. Do you miss being a student?

Answer:  I surely will miss my student life once I get involve in the workplace. For me I think when I’m a student, at least I have someone guide me, whereas at work mostly you must guide yourself. The academic environment appears to be a comfort zone for me, while I’m sure I’ll struggle with fitting in the working environment.

Cụm từ:

- To get involve in: to become a part of (an organization) nghĩa là để tham gia vào, trở thành một phần của một tổ chức, cơ quan.

- To fit in: to become suitable or appropriate for Sth or S nghĩa là để phù hợp với, để trở thành phù hợp hoặc thích hợp cho Sth hoặc SO.

18. What do you do after work?

Answer:  I normally cook dinner, relax and walk my dog. Depending on my schedule, I might have plans with friends to meet for a coffee or shopping. In summer I go to the beach for a couple of hours then return home to cook dinner.

Speaking Part 2 Topic Job/Work

Describe your idea of making a good first impression in a job interview.

You should say:

- why it is important.

- is it important to make a good last impression as well

- what ways would you do it in your job interview

- and explain how to make a good first impression in a job interview.

Band 8 Sample Answer:

It’s of common sense that most people at my age are now seeking for good job opportunity. Thus, I have to get to know how to leave a good first impression in a job interview. Today, I would like to share with you some of my knowledge about this topic.

In a professional situation, the first impressions are significantly important. Most job interviews don’t last more than 45 minutes. In such a short period of time, from those who don’t know anything about ourselves, we have to persuade them that we are qualified enough for the position we applied for. Thus, a good first impression can help to increase the success rate in our application process.

There are many things a candidate can do create positive first impression. You may choose following some among these tips or all of them, such as arriving on time for the interview, dressing formally, use appropriate ways of behavior and communications. Besides, there are some noted points that you should pay much attention to like job description, company information which you acquired through researches. By going through the required tasks and skills for the vacancy, company’s culture or giving some suggestions to improve productivity of the tasks you might be in charge of when you take that position can help you stand out from other candidate. For me, I would choose to follow all tips above.

Apart from first impression, I strongly believe that last impressions are important as well. Often we are not accepted immediately in the interview. Recruiting team will have to take into account all candidates’ performances during the interview to choose the most suitable ones for the position. Therefore, good first impression only is not enough, we have to build good relationship with recruiters by making good last impression, too. By doing so, we showed our respect to recruiters and the job we apply for.

Being in a job interview is not an enjoyable experience. However, we have to get through it to pursue our dream jobs. Thus, we should prepare well enough for occasions like that.


- be of common sense: something are widely known (ý chỉ độ phổ biến chung, một cái gì đó được biết đến rộng rãi)

Ex: The fact that “the sun rises in the east and set in the west” is of common sense.

- go through: study carefully about ( ý chỉ học hành, nghiên cứu cẩn thận về)

Ex: Collins went through every legal book she could find.

- vacancy: a job that no one is doing and is available for someone new to do ( ý chỉ vị trí tuyển dụng)

Ex: There is a vacancy for a shop assistant on Saturdays.

- stand out: to be much better than other similar things or people ( ý chỉ nổi bật, tốt hơn nhiều so với những thứ hoặc những thứ tương tự khác)

Ex: We had lots of good applicants for the job, but one stood out from the rest.

- take into account: to consider or remember something when judging a situation

Ex: A good architect takes into account the building’s surroundings.

- get through: to manage to deal with a difficult situation (vượt qua, ý chỉ để quản lý đối phó với một tình huống khó khăn)

Ex: I just have to get through the first five minutes of my speech, and then I’ll be fine.

Describe an interesting job you want to do in the future.

Answer: When I was just 9 or 10 years old, I always thought that my future profession could be a doctor - a kind of superhero so that I could help and save people’s life. However, ever since I was in high school, I have realized that being a journalist is my lifelong goal.

Reason: The first justification why I want to become a journalist is that I can have the opportunity to be a “globetrotter” to write about important events or introduce latest news to people. Just the thought of travelling to different places not only in my country but also in other regions makes me feel excited. The second reason and also another interesting fact about being a journalist is that it provides me with the chance to work and communicate with people from all walks of life and from various areas, which encourage mutual understanding.

Example: And to become a journalist, I think I must be well-prepared to meet the requirements. First, when finishing the third year in university, I should participate in an internship in a prestigious communications agency and then I need to study hard so that I can get a Bachelor’s Degree in Journalism.

Becoming a journalist is not an easy task at all but to me, practice makes perfect and I will try my best to realize my dream!

Speaking Part 3 topic Job/Work

1. Which do you think is more important, colleagues or work itself? 

Answer: I think both are equally important. If you get along really well with the people you work with but don’t exactly enjoy your responsibilities, it’s going to be really hard to stay in your job for a long time. And if you are doing your dream job, but you can’t take your co-workers, it’s also going to be very stressful.

2. Is there some other kind of work you’d rather do?

Answer: For the time being, I’d say no, because my job already entails so many different kinds of responsibilities, and I feel that I have plenty of opportunities to develop myself in many different aspects. So I’m perfectly happy doing my current job. 

3. Which jobs would you say are most respected in your country?

Answer: Well, I have never thought about this, but I reckon that professional careers such as the fields of law, education, and medicine may be the most highly-acclaimed ones. It is mainly because of the fact that people working in these fields can easily earn lucrative income compared to others.

4. Some people say it’s better to work for yourself than be employed by a company. What’s your opinion?

Answer: Well, I used to be a full time employee & felt very stressful. To be specific, most of the time, I had a hectic schedule & was up to ears in heavy workloads to meet deadlines. Therefore, although running my own business is really challenging, I do feel far more comfortable with it.

5. What changes in employment have there been in recent years in your country?

Answer: As far as I know, more and more people, especially the young generations are involved in setting up their own businesses. Thus, the “start-up” community is now more alive than ever, especially tech startups.

6. What are some of the important things a candidate should find out before accepting a job?

Answer: Well, this is an interesting question. If I were offered a job, I would definitely go through the company’s compensation package such as salary, allowances, maternity or paternity leave, insurance, pension plans, vacations, etc. Also, I’d need to know about my area of responsibilities so that I can make sure that I will not be overwhelmed with heavy workloads down the road.
