Ielts Speaking Opinions Part 3

In Vietnam, who often has great ideas / opinions?

Entrepreneurs in VN usually have great ideas, especially visionary business leaders in the tourism industry. Firstly, they can come up with brilliant / creative/ innovative/ unique/ original / excellent/ incredible/ amazing ideas and solutions to create products that are captivating/ APPEALING to tourists. Secondly, these leaders tend to have  innovative/ unique approaches to motivate their employees, and therefore/ thus their corporations develop/ grow/ THRIVE rapidly/ very fast.

Sample 2: 

The way I see it, young people tend to have more amusing/ creative ideas and opinions than old people. Generation Z now have far more platforms to show their creativity, especially social media such Facebook, Youtube and TikTok. They are more open to new ideas and have no limits when it comes to expressing themselves and their creativity. This is because they’ve been exposed to foreign cultures earlier than previous generations, and thus are able to broaden their mind and they aren’t afraid to speak their mind too.

Do you think children and adults often have the same opinion about things?

Sample 8+: From my perspective/ standpoint  (The way I see it), the young and the old TEND TO have different opinions/ views about things. This is because youngsters are more open to/ receptive to new ideas or new ways of life while old people/ their old counterparts are usually conservative and stick to/ hold onto traditional ways of life. For example , wearing crop tops on the street is seen as/ considered fashionable/ trendy by the young whereas it is deemed inappropriate by old generations. 

Sample 7.0:

No, I don’t think so. People of different ages  have different levels of knowledge and experience and this affects their thinking. For instance, adults often choose a major that has a bright career prospect while teenagers tend to choose what they like. 

When do you think children start to have their own opinions?

Sample 1:

I reckon that children start to have their own opinions at 3. At this age, they become more aware of their own identity and in order to assert their independence, they might start to express their opinions on daily matters. They now want to choose their own food, clothes and toys rather than let their parents decide. Though they might not be able to voice their opinions verbally yet, they can express their opinions through body language, such as a tantrum.

Sample 2:

In my view, children start to have their own opinions probably at the age of 6. At this age, they begin to go to school, learn from teachers and friends, and become aware of their identity. They start to choose their own clothes and toys, and do things their own way. 

Who often influences children’s opinions?

From my perspective, parents have the most significant impact on the way children think. Particularly in Vietnam, children are taught to obey their elders. Additionally, young people, especially adolescents are affected/ influenced by celebrities. They usually support their idols’ opinions.


Sample 2: I reckon that young people’s opinions are usually influenced by their parents, friends and idols. Firstly, parents have the greatest impact on children during their formative years. It’s also the period in which children’s mindset is formed. Therefore, children might absorb their parents’ way of thinking. Besides, friends and famous people can also impact young people’s perspectives/ viewpoints because they tend to mimic what others do in order to gain / obtain a sense of belonging.  


Do you think parents should change their children’s opinions?


I’d say it depends on each situation. If children’s opinions are inappropriate, like when they think it’s okay for teens to smoke or to have an abortion, then parents should talk to them and explain to them about the consequences of these reckless behaviors so that they change their mind themselves. However, if children’s views are just different from their parents’ or too unconventional / forward-looking/ , I believe , parents shouldn’t try to force their own opinions on their kids and even should respect their kids’ opinions.



The way I see it, it depends on the situation. If their children’s opinions are inappropriate or might be harmful to themselves and society, parents should try to guide them on the right path. However, if their children’s opinions are just different, parents shouldn’t force them to change their thinking. 


Is it important for children to have their own opinions?

(paraphrase: critical thinking based on your own judgment  & independent thinking, the ability to think for themselves/ on their own.

Yes, I do think so. It’s crucial for children to have their own opinions. The first reason is that young people who are able to think for themselves can sharpen their critical thinking skills and problem solving skills. WHEN they think independently, they are more likely to come up with smart / innovative solutions for problems/ challenges they face/ encounter in life. Besides, this ability enables young people to develop/ cultivate/ nurture valuable/ essential qualities such as independence and responsibility / accountability which are the key to success/ are key factors in success/ great achievements/ accomplishments.


Sample 2:

Yes, I’d say so. Independent thinking plays a crucial role in children’s development. Firstly, it can boost/ foster/ nurture their creativity because they tend to think out of the box. Secondly, when children are able to assert their opinions, they might become more independent and responsible later in life.  This means that they are more likely to achieve great success in the future.


Sample 3:

Of course. It’s crucial for children to have their own way of thinking. Independent thinking can help children become more creative and responsible. This means that they are more likely to achieve great success in the future.


Should leaders listen to their subordinates’ opinions?

Yes, I do think so. It’s crucial for leaders to listen to their subordinates’ opinions/ views. When employees feel heard and appreciated/ valued, they might be motivated to contribute more to the development of the business. Additionally, different people have different perspectives so listening to what employees think may help leaders make wiser decisions.

Sample 2:

  • a holistic/ realistic view => Gain fresh perspectives on problems facing the company or organization 
  • strengthen their relationship with their subordinates => subordinates may feel more confident, appreciated and satisfied  

Should the government listen to their citizens’ opinions?

  • Gain public support and TRUST/ loyalty 
  • Better governance => more effective solutions => improve their citizens’ well-being and quality of life/ life satisfaction
