Sample Answer

It is an irrefutable fact that how to protect the environment has long been a major topic of concern. As a result, I must say that in recent decades, there have been more individuals than ever who have done significant amounts of work in order to protect the environment. Among them, I would like to talk about Leonardo DiCaprio – a renowned actor, film producer and environmentalist. 

It goes without saying that Leonardo is globally recognized for his amazing performances in some of the most legendary films in the world such as Titanic or Shutter Island. Like everyone else, I first knew him by watching Titanic, but recently, I have come to a realization that he has taken on a role as an environmentalist, who has done so many things to protect our mother Earth. 

To the best of my knowledge, he created a foundation named after him, which aims to support environmentally conscious organizations. Since then, he has worked tirelessly to shift public awareness of key environmental problems. Even half of his personal website is dedicated to environmental news and he has produced a number of media projects and documentaries, just to get his message to reach more people. 

I am speechless when it comes to Leo’s contribution to the environment since it is immeasurable. He truly sets a good example for his fans, including myself, to follow. It was not until I watched some of his documentaries that I started to change my mind about the importance of environmental protection. I was greatly influenced by him, and this is evidenced  by the fact that I have switched from plastic bags to tote or paper-based bags, cutting down on the use of plastic cups and so much more. 

Overall, I strongly believe that if the world has more environmentalists like him, it can become a better place.

IELTS Speaking Part 3

1. What do you think are the greatest environmental problems facing your country at present?

There are a plethora of environmental issues nowadays that every single country around the world has to face and deal with. Some of the most alarming ones can be named such as obviously, air pollution, water contamination, global warming, and the list goes on.

2. What has been done so far to solve these problems?

I must say that my country has been making every effort to tackle these above-mentioned problems. The way I see it, the Vietnamese governments have poured a large amount of money into improving the transport system, with the most noticeable investment being the first metro line in Ha Noi. Not only does this ease traffic congestion in the big cities like Ha Noi, but it also helps reduce the amount of CO2 emission, which is a major contributor to global warming.
3. Should countries try to solve climate change problems together or individually? Why?

I strongly believe that there should be a concerted effort among different nations in order to solve climate change problems. This is primarily because such problems are so huge that it might be hard for a country or an individual to solve them alone. Therefore, environmental problems are on a global scale, so we need collaborative action to address them.
