1. What’s the weather like in your country?

It all depends on the section of the country you're talking about. I'm presently living in the North, where the weather is a little more comfortable because it has all four seasons, but it can still get very harsh, especially in the summer, when temperatures may reach up to 40 degrees Celsius owing to terrible dramatic heatwaves sweeping through the city.

  • Harsh (adj): khắc nghiệt

  • Heatwaves (n): luồng khí nóng

2. Which season do you like best?

Summer is one of my favorite seasons. I believe that summer is the finest season since all sports and physical activities are at their peak in the summer because you sweat and your body detoxifies so it's really healthy for you, it's like refreshing, however every now and then I have some significant skin issues like rash or allergies.

  • Detoxify (v): giải độc

  • Allergy (n): dị ứng

3. Does the weather affect your mood?

Yes. Cold, dreary days make me unhappy. I enjoy July because it is pleasant and sunny.

  • Dreary (adj): ảm đạm

4. Do you like rainy days?

Without a doubt! I enjoy it when it rains. I enjoy the fresh air and the cold wind after a hard rain. It's fantastic!

5. Is there any part of your country where it doesn’t rain much?

During the winter, it rains a lot in my present country. Because the island is tiny, rain usually falls on all portions of it.

6. Can you remember any time when it rained particularly heavily in your hometown?

Yes, the rain was so heavy a few years ago that several regions were totally inundated, with the river's banks breaching. Many vehicles were destroyed, and many people had to be evacuated from their houses.

  • Inundated (adj): bị ngập lụt

  • Breaching (v): tàn phá

7. Do you do different things in different weather?

I certainly do. I mean, throughout the summer, I do a lot of exercise. But in the winter, when the weather is gloomy, the sky seems dark and dreary, and due to the dense cloud cover, I find myself drowsy and absolutely unproductive.

  • Drowsy (adj): buồn ngủ

8. Would you prefer to live in a place that has the same weather all year, or a place that has four seasons?

I must admit that I consider myself fortunate to have four seasons to appreciate, even though the strong contrast between seasons is gradually fading in the North. It's sort of dull to me if we just have one season all year, as in the southern region of Vietnam, where the temperature is hot all year and there are only two seasons: rainy season and dry season.

9. Do you think the weather is more important to people who play sports?

Yes, especially for those who participate in outdoor sports. For example, it has a substantial influence on athletes' performance. High temperatures can produce heat diseases such as heat cramps and heatstroke, while low temperatures can cause hypothermia.

  • Substantial (adj): đáng kể

  • Heatstroke (n): say nắng

  • Hypothermia (n): hạ thân nhiệt

10. How is the weather today?

Even though it rained briefly this morning, I think today is a beautiful day. When I went out of the home, the weather seemed to improve, and I hope it continues to do so for the remainder of the day.

11. What’s your favorite kind of weather?

I don't like any sort of weather. Every season, in my opinion, has its own distinct beauty, and it is up to us to appreciate it. For example, whereas many people dislike the chilly weather in the winter, I see it as an opportunity to wrap up and show off my outfits.

12. What is the climate like in your country?

Because Vietnam is a tropical country, the weather is hot and humid. What bothers me the most is that the weather is becoming increasingly unpredictable. It can rain cats and dogs in the morning and then abruptly stop in the afternoon.

  • Humid (adj): ẩm ướt

13. Does the weather affect people’s lives in your country?

I feel that the weather always has an impact on us in some manner. If it's a rainy day, I'm sure everyone will grow bored or tired of whatever they're doing. Sunny days, on the other hand, make us feel lively and optimistic.

14. Do people change in the summer?

It may get rather hot in the summer, therefore I believe it will have an effect on people's moods. Everyone becomes less patient than normal, and they frequently feel agitated and easily irritated over little problems.

  • Agitated (adj): lo âu

  • Irritated (adj): bị kích thích

15. Do you watch the weather forecasts?

I don't watch weather predictions on TV, but I do check a weather app on my phone every day to observe the temps and humidity.

  • Prediction (n): dự báo

2. IELTS Speaking topic Weather: Part 2

Describe your favorite weather.

  • What the weather is like

  • Why do you like it

  • Where you can experience such weather conditions.

Sample:

00:00

It may sound unusual, but I like overcast, windy, and drizzly weather because it makes me feel peaceful and comfortable. I enjoy such weather, especially at night, since I can hear the rainfall and see the dew on the window, which helps me sleep. I also enjoy foggy weather. It's incredibly romantic and makes me feel like I'm in an old black-and-white film. I, on the other hand, dislike severe showers and downpours. And I despise it when the temperature drops below zero; it's too chilly for me. Probably, the weather I prefer is typical of the United Kingdom. However, such weather is really unusual in my hometown.

Từ vựng hữu ích:

  • Overcast (adj): u ám

  • Drizzly (adj): mưa phùn

  • Foggy (adj): sương mù

  • Downpours (n): mưa lớn

Nhiều học sinh lo lắng rằng họ cần phải duy trì giao tiếp bằng mắt với giám khảo. Điều này là cần thiết cho part 1 & 3, nhưng không nhất thiết phải có trong part 2. Trong Part 2 điều mà bạn nên tập trung nhất đó chính là xem xét câu hỏi và các ghi chú của bạn về câu trả lời cho câu hỏi đó
