Ielts Speaking Routine Topic Part 3 Sample Answers – Câu trả lời mẫu
Do employees have routines at work?
Keywords: Definitely. Some check their mail box first, some prefer to carry out creative tasks such as brainstorming or copy-writing early in the morning. Some take a break at a regular time for a cup of tea or coffee, or chatting with others.
How do these routines affect their work?
A daily routine helps employees become more efficient. It reduces the need to make decisions each day. It enables them to know exactly what they need to do without having to decide or think too much. They can also save time on planning, decision making and preparation. Furthermore, they get better at doing a certain task because they do it regularly. As a result, they become more efficient and proficient.
Should employees be allowed to take breaks often?
I believe employees should have the freedom to take as many short breaks as they want, by “short” I mean 5 to 10 minutes. Sitting in one posture at the desk for 3 or 4 hours straight is not good for their health. Also, by leaving their desks, doing some exercise and giving their eyes and brain time to rest, they can increase their productivity and job performance.

– Breaks can help them retain information in memory (important for studying or rehearsing a speech etc.)

Do you think routines make people more creative?
Well, maintaining a routine allows people to focus their mental resources on important work and spend more time on creative or demanding tasks. In this way, a routine can actually boost their creativity. However, too much routine is not good. When sticking to set habits and rigid thinking patterns, people tend to make the same decisions over and over. Also, they might become less open to change, innovation and new ideas. Therefore, knowing when to rely on routine and when to break it and seek variety is very important for people to be creative at work and enjoy an interesting life.
Do you think routines work better for old people than for young people?
Well, it’s a tough question. To some extent, I think it’s true. Old people seem to rely more on routines and keep healthier and better habits. Young people believe they have a long future ahead, so they prefer novel experiences. They embrace change and creativity and take risk while older people tend to settle and prefer what has always worked best for them. Another thing is “with age comes wisdom” so old people might develop more effective routines than children and young adults.
