IELTS Speaking Part 2
Describe a person who is full of energy
You should say:
- Who he or she is
- What he or she does
- Why he or she is full of energy
- And explain how you feel about this person
I’m going to talk about my sister who is the most energetic person I’ve ever known. She is working as an event planner at a famous company in Ho Chi Minh City. She also has her part-time job as a yoga teacher. She’s always full of beans (1) and the smile is always on her lips. Every day, she gets up at 5 a.m and starts her day (2) with 1 hour of yoga and meditation(3) . She always has self-made healthy breakfast with fruit smoothies and veggies. Her job requires multitasking (4) and creativity and she also has to move from place to place during the day.
After work, she goes to the yoga center where she works part-time and does not come home until 10 p.m. Even though she has a long day’s work, she’s never tired or shows that she loses her energy. Besides, she’s always in a good mood(5) . Even when she faces the biggest problem in her life, she still keeps a positive attitude. She’s always the life and soul of the party(6 ) . Her energy and enthusiasm makes people happy and motivated when being with her. I’m grateful that I am her younger sister. She gives me a lot of inspiration to work harder and maintain a positive mindset(7) . Whenever I have difficulties, she always encourages me not to give up and thanks to her kind words, I become a better version of myself (8) every day.

IELTS Speaking Part 3
- What kind of jobs require much energy?
Well, I think the jobs in which people have to do a lot of physical activities or talking with customers all the time require a lot of energy. Besides, being a teacher also requires people to have a high level of energy. I myself am a teacher, so I always have to maintain my enthusiasm. Because whenever I show that I’m tired or not active, my lessons are boring and not interactive.
- Do you think manual work will all be done by machines in the future?
Yes, for sure. Using machines for physically demanding work is on the rise. Just take household chores as a simple example: Instead of washing clothes or dishes by hand, now we have a washing machine and dishwasher to complete those tasks. Using machines helps people save time and energy, but when it comes to jobs, I believe a lot of manual jobs will disappear in the future, and many unskilled people may be unemployed.
- Do you think manual workers will earn more in the future?
I don’t think so. As I mentioned before, machines are gradually replacing humans in manual work, so of course manual labor will not be as highly appreciated as they are now. Employers will prefer robots that can handle a large volume of work in a shorter time than humans. So manual workers may even lose their jobs if their work can be done more efficiently by a machine.
