IELTS SPEAKING SMILE TOPIC – SAMPLE ANSWERS – CÂU TRẢ LỜI MẪU
Do you like to smile?
I do. I believe a smile has magical power to light up the world. It can turn a bad day around for me and makes people around me feel happier too.
Light up: làm bừng sáng lên / nụ cười tỏa nắng: a radiant smile / turn something around: xoay chuyển (tình thế)
How often do you smile?
Well, there are so many occasions for me to smile every day. I always wear a smile when greeting people. I smile when I feel happy and also when I get frustrated about life because smiling helps reduce my stress.
(wear a smile = smile/ get frustrated about: cảm thấy chán nản, bế tắc)
Do you smile when you are having your picture taken?
Definitely. I dearly love to smile for photos though I must admit I’m a bit camera-shy. I rarely go for a wide, open-mouth smile but just a half-smile.
(have your photo taken: được chụp ảnh/ camera-shy: ngại chụp ảnh/ half-smile: cười mỉm/ chúm chím)
Do you think every person should smile in photos?
Ideally, a picture looks amazing when everyone in it is smiling happily together. However, I believe we don’t have to flash a smile if we feel awkward or uncomfortable doing so. It’s absolutely fine to be just the way we are.
(flash a smile: nở 1 nụ cười/ feel uncomfortable doing ST: không thoải mái làm gì đó/ gượng cười: force a smile/ fake a smile)
When do people smile to others?
Generally, people tend to smile back when they see someone smile at them first. A natural, genuine smile is the best way to greet people or to cheer them up. Particularly, smiling to customers is an etiquette in business.
Can you sense (or feel, or tell) if someone’s smile is fake?
Sure, it’s easy to tell the difference between a genuine smile and a fake one. When someone is smiling sincerely, their cheeks lift up and some wrinkles appear around the outer corners of their eyes. In case of a forced smile, there are no such signs.
(Phân biệt : tell the difference / nụ cười giả vờ/ cười gượng ép: a forced smile/ a fake smile)
When was the last time you saw a lot of people smiling?
Last week, I watched a TED talk presented by an excellent speaker with a good sense of humor. All the audience burst out laughing when she said “A good conversation is like a miniskirt, short enough to retain interest and long enough to cover the subject”. It felt amazing to share a laughter with a lot of people.
(khiếu hài hước: a good sense of humour)
