2. Cue card và bài mẫu thường gặp về Education

Describe a subject you enjoyed studying at school. You should say:

- When and where you started studying it

- What lessons were like

- What made the subject different from other subjects

- and explain why you enjoyed the subject

The subject I’d like to describe is World History. It was a subject taught in highschool. About one hour is allotted everyday to learn about significant historical events. For some of my classmates, it was a boring subject but I enjoyed it a lot.

I remember that our teacher distributed a syllabus on our first meeting which served as a guide on the topics that will be discussed each week. We were assigned to read several books and other reading materials. We talked about famous people, from warriors to philosophers to artists. We discussed the wars that happened in the past. We also talked about religion, traditions and customs of the people during the ancient time.

As a subject, it required us to memorize a lot which was a disadvantage for me and my classmates at that time because it consumed much of our time. Nevertheless, history really intrigues me. I am always curious about how humans lived in the past. I have always been interested to look into how history turned us into the present generation. It fascinates me.

Describe a school that you went to. You should say:

– Where the school was

– When you went there

– What the school and the teachers were like

– And explain what you liked and disliked about it.

…I’d like to talk about Nguyen Khuyen private school, To me, it is perhaps the toughest but funniest high school in the entire city.

Nguyen Khuyen Private school is located in Tan Binh, a busy and lively district in Ho Chi Minh city. The school offers young students ranging from primary school to high school with a full range of facilities for the best education as a boarding school. Many parents and students from both urban and rural areas have to get in line to wait for their turn to apply for the school’s summer semester. This school is always reputable for its excellent academic results as well as its strict self-regulation lessons as in the army.

It dated back to when I was in grade 10 that my mother addressed me to this school. I studied there until I got my high school diploma and was ready to have my university’s entrance test. I had such a diligent period learning at this school within solid observations from my teachers. However, I have to admit that I also had fond of captivating memories while learning there.

Also, the thing that appealed to me most of all was the fun time when my peers and I did some physical activities in the school yard and enjoyed our meals after a hard-working day. Once a year, we had our trip of the lifetime to somewhere off the beaten tracks together. Those memories are things that I will never forget and I always consider those as my pride in my youth.
