IELTS Speaking Part 2 Topic:
Describe a person who once moved to live with you.
You should say:
- who was he/she
- how long this person lived with you
- why he/she moved to live with you
and explain how you felt about it.
Many of my friends began to live independently at the age of 18. However, as my house is near my university, I didn’t have to move out at that age. It’s not until when I was offered the first job after graduation that I began to live on my own. At that time, I had to join a training course for new staff in our head office in Ho Chi Minh City in 3 months. During that period, an administration staff was in charge of renting accommodation for me. To save cost, I have to stay with another new female staff from Hanoi.
We didn’t have chances to meet each other until the flight. On the flight, we got introduced to each other and make plans for buying some necessities as we had to live together in 3 months. Fortunately, she was at the same age with me, so, we had a lot in common to talk about. Honestly, living with her was quite comfortable as she was nice. She had travelled to Ho Chi Minh City many times before, thus, she was accustomed to northern life and she could help me a lot.
With her, I found living in Ho Chi Minh City not as hard as I expected. She also gave me some useful tips and places to explore special cuisine there. Sometimes, we got into fights because of several misunderstanding. However, we always succeeded in reaching an agreement soon.
Besides, we had good friends in Ho Chi Minh City. As my roommate and I are Hanoians, our colleagues often came asking about Hanoi culture or cuisine, which made us easier to get along with them. We had a great time together, and now, after moving back to Hanoi, we’re still keeping in touch with each other.
