1. Do you like animals?
Answer: In my personal opinion, I am particularly fond of the companionship of amiable creatures such as dogs, cats, and birds. I believe that these animals are ideal as human companions, and having them as pets can greatly aid in alleviating emotional stress.
2. What’s your favorite animal? Why?
Answer: Undeniably, dogs are my favorite. At present, I am the owner of two pets who never fail to greet me at the door upon returning from work. Not only that, but they also provide emotional support during times of distress. That is why I have a strong fondness for dogs.
3. Are people in your country fond of animals?
Answer: Actually, no, which is quite unfortunate. The reality is that instead of showing respect towards animals, the majority tends to abuse them and capture images for the purpose of sharing with others or posting on social media platforms like Facebook.
4. What kinds of animals as pets do people have in your country?
Answer: Like other nations, we often keep dogs and cats as pets. This is because these animals are domesticated and simple to coexist with.
5. Do you think cities are suitable places for keeping a pet?
Answer: I hold the belief that urbanization and heavy traffic in cities can have adverse effects on the health of dogs. This is primarily because the presence of high traffic volume poses a significant risk to pets, increasing their chances of being involved in accidents. Additionally, it is challenging to find suitable and safe play areas for dogs amidst urban development, leading to a potential negative impact on their overall well-being.
6. Do children in your country like animals?
Answer: Certainly. Children often enjoy having dogs and cats as pets due to their amiable nature and soft, comforting fur. These animals provide a safe outlet for children to play and snuggle with.
7. What kind of animals do you think children like?
Answer: For me, it all simply comes down to their individual traits. Most kids like cat and dog companionship because they are so playful and free-spirited. On the other hand, there are kids who just can’t get enough of the birds’ chirpy songs. Furthermore, there will always be those who find pleasure in torturing or humiliating animals.
8. What was your favorite animal when you were a child?
Answer:I unequivocally consider myself a dog person. I vividly remember that during my parents’ arguments, I would often step outside and play with Kiki, a friendly dog owned by our neighbors. I found solace in her company and it helped me escape the tense situation. This is why I have developed a deep affection for dogs and why I currently have a furry companion bearing the same name.
9. Did you have any pets when you were a child?
Answer: No, alas. Because of their fear for my safety, my parents wouldn’t let me get a pet.
10. What do you think are the benefits of a child having a pet?
Answer:There are numerous benefits of having a pet at home, especially for children. One of the positive outcomes is that it can help kids learn to express affection towards other animals through activities such as petting and caring for them. Additionally, having a pet at home can encourage children to take on responsibilities, such as feeding or walking the pet, and help them learn to contribute to household chores.
11. If you have children in the future, will you allow them to keep a pet?
Answer: Undoubtedly, owning a pet can have a positive impact on a child’s physical and emotional development. It may encourage them to be more responsible and lead to a healthier lifestyle. Furthermore, pets can provide companionship and a sense of comfort by sharing their living space with them.
12. Why do some people keep pets at home?
Answer:Certainly, there are numerous benefits to having a pet in your home, but I think one of the most significant is that pets are truly an extension of our families. They can help alleviate stress and boost our mood when we’re feeling down or tired. That’s why so many people consider their cats and dogs as a part of their family.
13. What kinds of animals do you like?
Answer:Regarding birds, I find myself fascinated by all their species. From their stunning beauty to their captivating charm, birds are truly remarkable creatures. While some may exhibit aggressive behavior, simply observing them can be an incredibly calming and therapeutic experience.
14. Have you ever had a pet before?
Answer:I used to have a bulldog which was gifted to me by a friend. I had him for almost a year before he was taken away from me. Losing such a beloved companion was a terrible experience, and it made me vow never to have a pet again.
15. Do you like to see animals in the zoo?
Answer: If I’m being really honest, the answer is no; I always feel bad for the animals in the cages. Despite the fact that they are well-fed and cared, these animals miss out on the freedoms they would have in their natural world.

II. IELTS Speaking Sample Part 2 – Topic Animals
Describe a time when you saw an interesting animal.
- You should say:
- what animal it was
- where you saw it
- what happened when you saw it
and explain why you thought it was interesting.
Today, I would like to talk about an intriguing animal which is my favorite Alaska dog. He was such a large breed of domestic dog and I raised him during my high school years.
The first time I met him was at a downtown pet shop and I was impressed by his black and white double coat, with the soft undercoat and water-proof outer one. Besides, his other attractive thing was that his small upright ears were out of proportion to the head. Because of those characteristics, I decided to bring him home and take care of him. Then, I found him extremely intriguing.
Firstly, he was very smart, so he learned everything quickly. For example, I once taught him how to fetch. Surprisingly, he successfully chased and retrieved the object after I tossed it for the first time. Amazingly, he acted as if he had intrinsically understood the game.
Secondly, he was also friendly to everyone, especially children. For instance, whenever someone visits my house, instead of barking, he welcomes them by waving his tail and licking their feet. Unfortunately, 2 years later, my family had to move to another city and the high-rise apartment where we lived didn’t allow residents to raise animals, so I passed him on to my cousin in the countryside.
For me, my dog was the best companion with which I could play after school and walk around the park on the weekends. As a final point, I hope that my dog lives well and I could meet him soon after a social distancing period.
Câu hỏi Hãy miêu tả một lần khi bạn nhìn thấy một con vật thú vị.
- Bạn nên nói:
- đó là con vật gì
- bạn đã thấy nó ở đâu
- chuyện gì đã xảy ra khi bạn nhìn thấy nó
và giải thích tại sao bạn cho rằng nó thú vị.
Câu trả lời mẫu
Hôm nay, tôi muốn nói về một con vật thú vị, đó là chú chó Alaska yêu thích của tôi. Nó là một giống chó nhà lớn và tôi đã nuôi nó trong suốt những năm trung học của mình.
Lần đầu tiên tôi gặp nó là tại một cửa hàng thú cưng ở trung tâm thành phố và tôi đã bị ấn tượng bởi bộ lông hai màu đen trắng của nó, với lớp lông mềm bên ngoài và lớp lông bên ngoài không thấm nước. Ngoài ra, điều hấp dẫn khác của nó là đôi tai nhỏ dựng đứng không cân xứng với đầu. Chính vì những đặc điểm đó nên tôi quyết định mang nó về nhà chăm sóc. Sau đó, tôi thấy anh ta cực kỳ thú vị.
Thứ nhất, nó rất thông minh, vì vậy nó học mọi thứ nhanh chóng. Ví dụ, tôi đã từng dạy nó cách tìm và lấy đồ vật. Bất ngờ là là nó đã đuổi theo và lấy lại được đồ vật sau khi tôi ném lần đầu tiên. Thật đáng ngạc nhiên, nó đã hành động như thể nó đã hiểu về bản chất trò chơi.
Thứ hai, nó cũng thân thiện với tất cả mọi người, đặc biệt là trẻ em. Ví dụ, bất cứ khi nào ai đó đến thăm nhà tôi, thay vì sủa, nó chào đón họ bằng cách vẫy đuôi và liếm chân họ. Không may, 2 năm sau, gia đình tôi phải chuyển đến thành phố khác và chung cư cao tầng nơi chúng tôi ở không cho phép người dân nuôi động vật nên tôi đã gửi lại cho cháu cho người anh họ ở quê.
Đối với tôi, chú chó của tôi là người bạn đồng hành tốt nhất mà tôi có thể chơi cùng sau giờ học và dắt nó đi dạo quanh công viên vào cuối tuần. Cuối cùng, tôi hy vọng rằng chú chó của tôi sống tốt và tôi có thể gặp nó sớm sau giai đoạn giãn cách xã hội.

III. IELTS Speaking Sample Part 3 – Topic Animals
Question: In what ways are humans different from other animals?
In many ways they are different, but in some ways, they are still quite the same.
The first dissimilar thing is that we have evolved, so humans’ brains have made it possible for humankind to have language, and really talk and communicate, unlike most animals which have just basic communication.
The second difference is that humans have created art and culture and are able to invent a wide variety of tools to make our lives more comfortable such as smartphones or even spacecraft.
However, most humans are still driven by the basic emotions of fear, love and pain. Animals do feel the same way humans do, humans are just better at expressing this pain.
For example, any mother, animal or human has the instinct to love and take care of her children, and whenever those mothers feel the threat from enemies, they definitely do their utmost to protect their offspring.
Therefore, both animals and humans all love and fear likely, they are just different forms of love and fear. So deep down, humans and animals are all the same, humans are just luckier at adapting themselves on this planet.
- A dissimilar thing /dɪˈsɪmɪlər/ /θɪŋ/ (n): Điều khác biệt
- (To) evolve /ɪˈvɑːlv/ (v) : Tiến hóa
- (To) be driven by (Phrase): Bị điều khiển bởi
- Instinct /ˈɪnstɪŋkt/ (n): Bản năng

- Feed on = eat (verb): ăn
- Get hooked on (sth): cực kỳ ưa thích/ bị thu hút bởi cái gì
Question 2: Do you think people treat wild animals well in your country?
In my opinion, the treatment of wild animals in my country is quite mixed. While there are laws in place to protect endangered species and their habitats, there are still instances of illegal poaching and habitat destruction. Some people also keep wild animals as pets or use them for entertainment purposes, which can lead to poor living conditions and mistreatment.
However, there are also many conservation efforts in place, such as wildlife sanctuaries and rehabilitation centers, that aim to provide a safe environment for injured or orphaned animals. Overall, I think there is still room for improvement in terms of protecting and respecting wild animals in my country, but there are also positive efforts being made to address these issues.
Question 3: Do you think it is important to spend money on protecting rare or endangered species?
Yes, absolutely. Protecting rare or endangered species is crucial for maintaining the biodiversity of our planet, and it is our responsibility to ensure that these species are not lost forever. It’s also important to consider the potential economic and ecological impacts of losing these species. In the long term, investing in conservation efforts will be much more cost-effective than trying to restore lost ecosystems or species.
Question 4: What measures might be taken to protect endangered species from extinction?
One measure that can be taken to protect endangered species is to create and enforce strict laws and regulations against poaching, hunting, and illegal wildlife trade. Another measure is to establish protected areas or national parks where endangered species can live and breed in a safe environment. Furthermore, there should be efforts to increase public awareness and education about the importance of conservation and the role that individuals can play in protecting endangered species.
