Describe a book you have read
I wasn't a book lover when I was a child, but that was changed overnight when I entered college. I guess being lonely forced me to seek comfort in reading books. Among the plenty of those I've read, the one I enjoyed the most was "The Little Prince" which is written by a French author, namely Antoine de Saint-Exupery.
I first encountered "The Little Prince" when I was a fresher at university. In fact, it was a birthday gift ,when I turned 21, from my hostel roommate. Though I'm sure I didnt get the whole story at that time, I still enjoyed every bit of it. I remembered finishing the book in one and a half hours straight.
"The Little Prince" is a short novel, initially written for children. However, I believe this book is suitable for all other ages, especially the adults. It is such a great book that has been translated into more than 250 languages.
The plot of this book is not only interesting but also very touching. It talks about the encounter between the little prince and the author himself - a pilot, when his plane badly crashed into Sahara Desert. After their meeting the prince unfolded his story, mainly about the unique rose on his planet and how she was the prime reason for his travelling through several asteroids. Even though the novel is simple, it manages to expose the absurdity in the world of adults, about their obsession with power, admiration and "numbers".
I can still recall the excitement I got while reading this book. It is so sweet yet reflects earnestly about our world. And despite the fact that I have read it more than a handful of times, I'm still planning to pursue it again as soon as I get time.
Thích hay không, bạn không thể phủ nhận tầm quan trọng của sách. Sách vừa là nguồn tri thức vô giá, vừa là người thầy người bạn tâm giao. Đôi khi sách chính là nguồn động lực để 1 ai đó bước tiếp và giúp họ thắp lên niềm tin trong cuộc sống.
Bạn có phải là 1 người yêu thích việc đọc sách? Nếu vậy thì thật may mắn cho bạn vì sách là 1 trong những chủ đề thi nói IELTS được lặp đi lặp lại nhiều lần trong 2 năm 2013 và 2014 tại Việt Nam.

Các vấn đề về môi trường luôn là chủ đề "hot" trên nhiều diễn đàn quốc tế. Bảo vệ môi trường là trách nhiệm của mỗi cá nhân hay của nhà nước và các tổ chức? Ý kiến của bạn về đề tài này như thế nào? ArrowEnglish gửi tặng các bạn bài viết mẫu bên dưới cho đề thi IELTS tại VN tháng 7/2014 vừa qua.
Topic: Some people think that environmental problems are too big for individuals to solve while others believe individuals can also do something to solve these problems. Discuss both views and give your own opinion.
Although the majority of the general public concede and have genuine concern for the present environmental problems, our opinions differ when it comes to who should ultimately be responsible for addressing these problems as some believe such problems are beyond individuals' ability to resolve while others think otherwise. Personally, I strongly believe each of us, seperately and collectively can proactively contribute to the cause of preventing or at least alleviating these on-going problems.
Environmental problems are, without any question, global problems in terms of severity and implication. Therefore, it is rather easy for some to think there is little they can do individually to make any meaningful impact on the dire problems even if they want to, and only the government and other worldly organizations can take appropriate measures to combat these problems. This misconception, sadly, represents the opinion of a significant proportion of the public, which only helps worsen the situation.
People should listen to music for no more than one hour a day to protect their hearing, the World Health Organization suggests.
It says 1.1 billion teenagers and young adults are at risk of permanently damaging their hearing by listening to "too much, too loudly".
It said audio players, concerts and bars were posing a "serious threat".
WHO figures show 43 million people aged 12-35 have hearing loss and the prevalence is increasing.
In that age group, the WHO said, half of people in rich and middle-income countries were exposed to unsafe sound levels from personal audio devices.
Meanwhile 40% were exposed to damaging levels of sound from clubs and bars.
The proportion of US teenagers with hearing loss went from 3.5% in 1994 to 5.3% in 2006.
WHO v The Who
Dr Etienne Krug, the WHO's director for injury prevention, told the BBC: "What we're trying to do is raise awareness of an issue that is not talked about enough, but has the potential to do a lot of damage that can be easily prevented."
