1. Câu hỏi IELTS Speaking part 1 thường gặp – Chủ đề Shopping
1.1 Do you enjoy shopping?
I do. It’s not that I’m obsessed with fashion or something. I enjoy the activity itself. You know. I like wandering around shopping malls, trying on clothes that I normally wouldn’t wear, and laughing with my friends because of the stupid look I’ve created. I also like shopping for groceries. Whenever I walk into a grocery store, it’s the instant feeling of freshness that always excites me. Of course. I like to go shopping with my friends. Sometimes, I don’t buy anything and just go round and round shopping malls.
1.2 What do you shop for?
Most of the time, I buy clothes. I get bored easily so I always want to see a new me every day. That’s why I buy a lot of clothes so I never have to wear the same outfit for a whole month. Bad habit I know.
1.3 How often do you go shopping?
Almost every weekend. But usually, I don’t plan ahead. I’m a very spontaneous person and my shopping habit reflects that perfectly. There are so many times when I just walked past a nice dress in a store and decided that I had to have it so I bought it without a second thought.
1.4 Where do you usually shop?
I don’t have any certain place to shop at. Well, I did when I was in the U.S. I always went to Abercrombie’s and Hollister’s to shop for clothes. Their clothes are high quality and look super chic. Just what I like. But there are no retail stores here in Vietnam though.
1.5 Do you like online shopping?
Yes, I’m a fan. For somebody that doesn’t know how to drive like me, online shopping is wonderful. It’s so convenient because I can lie on my bed and shop with my phone. A lot of retailers now have the 2-day or even 2-hour delivery option, which saves me so much time and is just awesome.
1.6 What sites do you shop on?
Vietnam has some big online retailers like Tiki and Sendo. Some foreign companies have jumped into our market as well, like Lazada and Shopee. Those are the sites I usually shop on. I actually do Amazon too. For Amazon, most of the time, I just transfer money to my friends in the U.S to purchase what I want for me because I don’t want to spend extra for shipping.
1.7 What are some problems of shopping online?
First, it’s false advertisement. I bought a dress online and on delivery, it looked completely different from the photo posted on the website. It was such a disturbing experience. But that was a few years ago when there were not a lot of online retailers competing with each other. Now that there are a bunch of them, it’s very easy to find trustworthy ones. Another concern is information security. You can be a victim of identity theft or risk compromising your credit card.

The shopping center I often go to is the Vincom Center located in Ho Chi Minh City. This shopping center is located in the heart of the city, making it easily accessible by various modes of transportation.
I visit the Vincom Center about once a month, either to buy something I need or simply to relax and enjoy the atmosphere. The shopping center is quite large, with several floors and a vast variety of shops and services available. The first floor is typically devoted to fashion and clothing stores, while the second floor is often home to electronics, home appliances, and bookstores. There are also many restaurants, cafes, and fast food chains located throughout the shopping center, making it easy to grab a bite to eat while shopping.
The Vincom Center has a modern, sleek design with a lot of natural light. The interior is well-maintained and clean, and there are plenty of seating areas available for shoppers to rest and relax. There are also large screens displaying advertisements and information about the latest products and sales, adding to the dynamic atmosphere of the shopping center.

The shopping center has a great selection of both local and international brands, and I can usually find what I am looking for at a reasonable price. Additionally, the shopping center is a great place to meet friends and spend time, as there are always plenty of things to do and see. Whether I am shopping, eating, or just enjoying the atmosphere, I always have a great time at the Vincom Center.

Why do some people like shopping with friends?
I think some people find shopping to be a social activity and enjoy the company of friends while shopping. They may view it as a form of bonding or a fun way to spend time together. Shopping with friends allows for the exchange of opinions and provides a sense of support and camaraderie. Also, it can make the shopping experience more enjoyable and memorable, as opposed to shopping alone.
social activity: hoạt động xã hội
bonding: sự kết nối, gắn kết
camaraderie: sự thân thiện, tình bạn
Why do people like shopping for clothes online?
There are several reasons why people enjoy shopping for clothes online. Firstly, online shopping provides a wider range of options and styles to choose from, allowing individuals to easily find what they are looking for. Secondly, online shopping is convenient and can be done at any time, without the need to travel to a physical store. Additionally, online shopping often provides better pricing options, with frequent sales and discounts being offered. Lastly, online shopping also enables individuals to easily compare different products and prices, leading to informed purchasing decisions.
"Options" - Tùy chọn
"Styles" - Phong cách
"Convenient" - Tiện lợi
"Pricing options" - Tùy chọn giá
"Informed purchasing decisions" - Quyết định mua hàng có thông tin.
What risks would you take when shopping online? Why?
Shopping online can involve certain risks. Firstly, there is the risk of financial loss as your payment information can be easily stolen by hackers if the website does not have proper security measures in place. Secondly, personal identity theft can occur if your personal information is revealed or leaked. Finally, a lack of consumer protection can make it difficult to get a refund for goods delivered late or not at all.
Risks - nguy cơ
Financial loss - mất tiền
Security measures - biện pháp bảo mật
Identity theft - bị đánh cắp danh tính
Consumer protection - bảo vệ người tiêu dùng.
Is shopping a popular activity in your country?
Absolutely, shopping is highly popular in Vietnam as it is considered a leisure activity. A wide variety of goods are available and the markets are a destination for both locals and tourists. In particular, digital payment options such as contactless payments are increasingly being used in the country, indicating the rising popularity of online shopping. This indicates that shopping is a widely accepted and enjoyed pastime in Vietnam.
Popular: phổ biến
Leisure activity: hoạt động giải trí
Digital payment options: tùy chọn thanh toán kỹ thuật số
How have shopping habits changed over recent years?
I would say that shopping habits in Vietnam have undergone significant changes over recent years. As incomes rise and innovation in digital payment systems increases, people are increasingly turning to online shopping for convenience. Additionally, the COVID-19 pandemic has led to new habits such as online shopping, as well as a preference for larger stores and supermarkets over smaller stores in the cities.

Các câu hỏi thường gặp
What are 3 smart shopping tips?
Gợi ý trả lời: Smart Shopping Tips - Think about some of the meals you will make. - Look at what you have on hand. - Write a list of what you need to buy.
What are the 4 consumer types?
Có thể trả lời như sau: - Loyal Customers: Loyal customers make up the bedrock of any business. As the name implies, loyal customers are those who have made a commitment to your product or service. Even though they may comprise the smallest percentage of your overall consumer base, your loyal customers are also the most likely to generate the majority of your income. As an added bonus, they're far more likely to recommend your company to others. - Impulse Shoppers: Impulse shoppers are those simply browsing products and services with no specific purchasing goal in place. This consumer segment generates significant revenue for most retailers. This type of consumer is usually receptive to upselling and has the potential to become a loyal customer if products and services meet or exceed their expectations and desires. - Bargain Hunters: Bargain hunters are seeking the best deal, period, and most likely won't be swayed by upselling techniques — in fact, this may cause them to move on. This type of customer has very little potential to become a loyal customer unless it's part of your business strategy to offer the lowest possible price points at all times. This customer also rarely, if ever, makes purchases on impulse. Advertising sales is the best way to appeal to those in this customer group. - Wandering Consumers: Wandering customers are somewhat related to impulse shoppers, but they're much less likely to make purchases. This type of customer is more prevalent in brick-and-mortar locations, but they do stumble into online retail venues on occasion. It's sometimes possible to make a sale to those just wandering through provided you can stimulate their interest, but keep in mind that many of them are simply attracted to the social interaction of shopping and have no intention of making a purchase. - Need-Based Customers: As the name implies, need-based consumers are driven by the need for a specific product or service. Although these customers generally make purchases decisively and quickly once they find what they're seeking, they're easily lured away by competing businesses. However, they're frequently converted into loyal customers. They often have practical questions or concerns that can be addressed with a proactive social media presence.
