1. Home and family (Gia nh)


My name is TVC. I come from Thai Binh. I was born in a big family with my
grandmother, my parents and my two brothers.
My gandmother is a kind and beautiful old women. She always tells me old

My parents have a small restaurant. Everyday, they must work very hard to earn
money.
My older brother is an engineer of informatic technology. Now, he is working in
Mobi company. I like him so much because he gives me some money every month.

My younger brother is a student. Now, he is studying at Ha Noi University of


Aricutule. He wants to study further with a scholarship in a famous country after
graduation. My brothers are very intelligent. I am always proud of my family.
I like the atmosphere in my family. We have dinner together every day. We often
talk about our work, the weather, educating children during the meal. After dinner, we

2. Learning foreign language (Hc ngn ng nc ngoi)


Nowadays, learning foreign languages is very important, especially English. English is
very necessary in social communication in many countries. There are some advantages
of learning English.
Firstly, if you are good at E, you can read any document that is necessary for your
study. Secondly, you can find a good job with a high salary with good E skill.
Furthermore, nowadays, E is a global language. Learning E will help you to
communicate with foreign people from around the world more easily. It also helps you
open your mind.
As for me, I am not good at English but I will spend more time on English in the near
future. I believe my E skill will be better if I am hard-working.

3. Transport (Giao thng vn ti)


Im going to tell you about transport problems in Vietnam.
Firtsly, Transport in VN is very terible. Especially, in big cities like Hanoi, there are
too many motorbikes on the road and people dont follow the traffic laws. They cross the
road while the lights are red. They may be the reasons why there are too many
accidents in Vietnam.
Another problem of transport in Vietnam is road systems. They are too old and
narrow. They should be repaired. More new roads should be built.
In my opinion, now the most necessary solutions to the transport problems in
Vietnam are educating people, especially young people about traffic laws and building
more modern road systems.

4. Hobbies (s thch ring) and entertainment (gii tr)


I have a lot of hobbies. For example :play football, travelling or listen to music.
But today, Im going to tell you about My favourite sport. My most favourite sport
is football. It is a famous sport in the world. Football is such a popular game that is
played even in the most remote area of my country. Even old people and children enjoy
watching this game.
When The Championship of World, the Premier League happen, people can
"eating football, sleeping football and playing football" and football is called the "King
sport".
Football players should be strong enough to kick the ball. They must also be
skillful in controlling the ball. This makes this game difficult indeed, yet it also makes it
interesting.
When I studied at Ha noi University of Agriculture, I participated in a team of the faculty
of Agronomy. My team won and the champion cup belonged to my team. I always love
this game!

5. Game and sport


To tell you the truth, I very like sport but I dont have enough time.
I just like watching them on TV. The sport that I want to tell you today is football.
I really like watching football matches on TV. My favourite football team is
Liverpool club. They play very well and the players are very handsome, especially
Sevent Gerrad.
I usually watch football matches with my father and my brothers at night. My
father and I support Liverpool but my brother likes MU so we allways argue about
football teams and Championleage.
In my opinion, there are a lot of good things about playing football. It not only
helps you stronger, but also helps you learn to unite.

6. Health and welfare (sc khe v hnh phc)


Im going to tell you about health care problem in Vietnam.
As you know, Vietnam is a developping country so health care systems are still
poor and old. Almost state owned hospitals were built a long time ago in Vietnam.
Therefore, they are all old and small. They do not meet peoples demand The
majority of big hospitals are in big cities such as Hanoi, HCM...
Further more, the the government invest a little money in local hospitals and
clinics. Thats why many people have to take a long journey hnh trnh to get to a big
hospital when they are badly trm trng ill.
Nowadays, the problems are improving. The government is investing more in
health care.
I hope that the health care system will be better in the near future in Viet Nam.

7. Education
Well, for me, education is a complicated problem to say.
I'm going to tell you something about hostels for students.
You know, allmost students who are studying in Hanoi come from poor provinces.
After they pass a difficult exam, new students and their families must prepare alot of
things for their study.
Nowaday, the most important problem of new students is dormitory. Hanoi is too
small for too much students so boarding house and dormitory for student is not enough.
Students must pay alot of money for a small room, it is not fair because they dont have
much money.
With these reasons, pressing problem now is build more hostel for students,
especially cheap price hostel.
In my case, I lived in hostel through 4 years and I really love the life in hostel, it is
safe peaceful and people here are very friendly.
In my opinion, most of university should be built more hostel for students.

8. Houses
I dont known every people think what about your house, for me, I love my house
so much.

Today I'm going to tell you something about my house. It is an old house that was
build about 10 years ago. My parents built it by their save money.
When you visit my house, the fist thing you will see is a medium living room, it is
decorated with the light color and some beautiful pictures on the wall. There are 3 bed
rooms in my house.There are one livingroom, and kitchen and the toilet.
I really love sister bed room because She decorate it by my self with pink walls,
sister cute bed, a wardrobe and a lovely dressing table.
The kitchen in my house is not big and modern but my mother is very like it
because where is my mother make a lot of delicious and special dishes for my family.
Every night, my family watch TV together in living room. We talk about
everything.
And I think it is the best time we have together.

9. Holiday
Firstly, I want to tell you that I really like holidays.
Im going to talk about Tet holiday. It is the first holiday in the year. I really like it
because I dont have to do any thing in my office on Tet holiday.
Therefore, I have more time for my family.
On Tet holiday, people in Vietnam usually visit their grand parents, relatives or
friends. They greet each other and give the best wishes. Adults usually give lucky
money to children. Also, all people are happy to wear new clothes.
Especially, people make a lot of delicious and special dishes a thc n. For
example, square cake , spring rolls, etc
As for me, I usually spare time with my family on the first day of the new year. I
often go out with my friends the rest days.

10. Social problems.


Nowaday, people not only in Vietnam but also from around the world busier than
in the past, and they dont have enough time for there family.
So, Im going to tell you something about family problem in Vietnam.
You know, Vietnam is a developing country, people are trying to have a better life.
That is the reason why they spend more time for their work and dont have enough time
for their family. Parents dont spend more time to play and talk with there children.
When members in a family dont spend time together
It make children feel lonely and they may leave their home to make friend with
strange people, its really dangerous for children.
In my opinion, people should balance time between work and family.

11. The economic development


As you know, Viet nam has been unified since 1975.
Viet nam made a big mis take about economic development, as we didnt apply
the opendoor policy after re unifying the country. As a result, viet nam had to need
aids from other counties. The economic was not development; The People,s life.
Therefore Vietnam had to open the door for development of economy in 1986 an Doi
moi means reform.
At the moment, the Vietnamese Party anh Government concentrate on the
economic developmemt ecomomic with the program modernization and
industrialization all over the country. More and more foreign investors invest in Vietnam.
The economy has been improving day by day. So much work has been done as well as
the peoples life are getting better and better. The reputation of Vietnam has been raised
especially after joining the WTO.
Now a day, Viet nam is striving for an industrialized country by 2020. We believe
that Vietnam will become a developed country in the near future.

12. Environment
As you know, Vietnam is a developing country so the development of industry is
very important. As a result, the environment is polluted.
There are many kinds of pollution like air pollution, water, soil, etc

In my opinion, air polluion is the most serious. Smoke from factories store many
kinds of toxics such as CO2 , CO, NH3, etc
It effects animals, plants and peoples life. Plants and animals near industrial
zones can not grow normally. Especially, air pollution cause a lot of serious diseases
such as lung cancer, skin cancer and other diseases.
From my point of view, developing economy is very important but we must
balance between benefit and damage.
We should protect our environment by planting more and more trees, cleaning
the environment. Another sollution is educating people about benefits of the clean/
fresh environment.

13. Food
Im going to tell you about my favourite food.
As you know, Vietnam is a tropical country. There are a lot of tropical foods.
My favourite food is beef noodle. It is made of rice, beef, and many kinds of
herbs. I usually eat beef noodle in the morning. My favourite restaurant is Cuong
Noodle. It is a small restaurant located on Tran Hung Dao street.
Whenever I eat beef noodle, it always makes me have a special taste. Hanoi is
famous for beef noodle. Whats more, it is also well- known for a lot of delicious foods.
For example Omai, grilled rice.
At home, my mother makes beef noodle very well. She often makes it when my
family get together. We enjoy the happy time when we have beef noodle at home.

14. Fashion
You can see me, I am not a famous man, Im a traditional man so my knowledge
about fashion is not very much.
In my opinion, fashion is something make people more beautiful and more
charming. Fashion usually is made by young people.
Nowaday, teenage usually wear exceptional clothers and those clothers have
many colour. Their hair are also dyed with many colours, for example red, brown, or
even green.
Fashion is not very common in middle-age person and old people never follow
fation.

In my way of thinking, Fashion is very good for every people but we must follow it
by a right way.
