Luyện thi IELTS: Các câu hỏi thường gặp
Is it easy to make you happy?
Yes, simple things like eating delicious foods or buying new clothes can cheer me up. I am always thrilled with my life and try to spread positive energy every day. Maybe that’s the reason why my friends call me “happy vitamin” sometimes.
What do you do when you are happy?
Whenever I am on cloud nine, the first thing I will do is to call my parents to inform them. By doing that, my happiness seems to become bigger and my parents feel delighted that they get informed firstly by their lovely daughter!
What makes you unhappy?
Well, I feel a bit down in the dumps when I fail exams. When my academic performance is not up to my expectation, it can cause a lot of depression and pressure. However, my parents are really supportive and give me advice so I don’t have to struggle with unhappy feelings for too long.
Do you think money can make people happy?
I take the opinion that many people feel satisfied when they have a lot of money because they can buy luxurious things and enjoy a lavish lifestyle. But I also know many people who are wealthy but are not happy. So I think there is no fixed answer to such a question.
What do you think of happiness?
In my humble opinion, happiness isn’t achieving certain goals. Surely it’s important to accomplish what you yearn for but that’s not eternal happiness for me. happiness a journey that I undertake in the pursuit of my goals.
What do you like to do when you are happy?
I’d like to share my success and feeling with my family or friends when I’m happy. I believe that my happiness can’t go without them.
What kinds of things make you happy?
There are many things that can make me happy, for example, taking a 30-minute walk outside can help me let off steam and I won’t feel any depressed, or buying lots of things online can deliver me even more happiness because it enables me feel that I save a great amount of money.
What kinds of things do Vietnamese people feel happy about?
It’s kind of hard to say but people that I know around me tend to feel happy about earning more money, but maybe for others, they would feel happy when their children get into the good universities.
Is it easy to be happy for you?
Well, I’m afraid that as an adult, I’m too stressful to be happy. I have to find a good job and get a decent pay to feed myself and family, so I have to admit that there are less and less things that make me really happy.
How would you define happiness?
Happiness to me is the result of accomplishing my goals and objectives. So when I complete a task, no matter how small, I often reward myself with a brief moment of reflection to take in the feeling of happiness.
objective (n): mục tiêu
to accomplish something: hoàn thành gì đó
take in (v + adv): chiêm nghiệm
What kinds of things make people in your country happy?
Just like people anywhere else, a roof over their heads, food on their tables are the things that make people happy and feel secure in Vietnam. If they are parents, seeing their children succeed in school and lives also help them to be happy.
secure (adj): an toàn (cảm giác)
Do you think money can make people happy?
Well, let me put it this way. Money itself doesn’t bring joy. But, it’s an important tool for many essential things without which we may be desperate such as food, water, housing and clothing. I’d say that money doesn’t guarantee happiness but it can help us to satisfy our essential needs, which are the foundation of happiness.
desperate (adj): tuyệt vọng
guarantee (v): đảm bảo
essential (adj): thiết yếu
Why do some people say happiness never lasts long?
I agree with them because happiness, as I said, is the very last result of the whole process of achieving something. Once you’ve done that, it’s your natural response to be back in the game again, and try to achieve more goals. The feeling of happiness doesn’t last long but it makes you more motivated and I think that’s a good thing.
be back in the game: trở lại cuộc chơi, tiếp tục trải qua thử thách
