Where are you from?
Well, I come from Hanoi, the capital of my country Vietnam. It’s a small yet very beautiful city with a population of more than 7 million people.
What do you like about your city?
There’re many awesome things about my city. Well, people in my town are really friendly and helpful. They’re always willing to give you a hand when you need help. Also, Hanoi’s cuisine is very diverse with a lot of delicious dishes such as Pho and Spring rolls.
Do you want to live here in the near future?
To be honest, although it’s quite ideal for me to live in my city now, I still want to move to another city in some developed country in the world. So I’m studying IELTS to make that dream come true.
Are you a patent person?
Yes I am. But I used to be a super hot-tempered kid who always got annoyed if someone kept me waiting even for 10 minutes.
Have you ever lost your patience?
I sometimes lose my patience when I’m stuck in the traffic for hours after a hard day’s work or I’m constantly interrupted by my family members while working in my room.
When do you need patience the most?
Occasionally, not being able to keep your patience can cause undesirable results, for example, for studying English, you need to build up your knowledge day by day, sometimes you have to take some rest. So, I think I need to be patent when I learn a new language.
Describe a good law in your country
• What the law is
• How you first learned about the law
• Who the law aﬀects
And explain why it is a good law. (what would happen without it?)
Today I’m going to talk about a law that I find very eﬀective in my country. It is about banning people from throwing garbage in public places.
A few days ago, I heard the news broadcast on VTV1 Channel that this law had been enacted after the Environmental Protection Conference last month. It says that no one is allowed to liter in public sites, especially tourist attractions. If anyone is caught throwing rubbish in such places, he or she must pay a fine of about 1 million to 5 million VND, which is a huge amount of money. In case a person is reported to have broken the law, the one who reported may receive a bonus of 5 million, of course, with proper evidence only.
After this law came into force and some people were reported. The strict punishment and strong criticism from the media as well have discouraged citizens from throwing rubbish everywhere they went. Also, the stunning views and natural landscapes of some famous tourist attractions in Vietnam have been protected. There are also fewer complaints from tourists about so much liter such as used cans and bottles appearing on the beach. And the most important thing is citizens’ awareness of protecting the environment has greatly improved.
What are the necessary qualities for someone to become a judge?
I think there are many essential characteristics of a good judge. First, a judge should be fair. Because he is the representative of justice, I suppose fairness is the first quality that matters. Besides, he needs to be wise to apply the laws properly and suitably according to diﬀerent cases. Sometimes, it’s important that the judge understands the real story behind what is told.
What are the necessary qualities for someone to become a lawyer?
In my opinion, a lawyer needs to be honest and have a deep understanding of the laws. To be more specific, a lawyer should always provide the exact information on their clients’ situation, then give them the best advice on what they should do. A lawyer also needs to understand the law thoroughly so that he can protect his clients’ rights or reduce the severity of their sentences.
Are there any circumstances that the law should be broken?
I think in some cases, the law can be broken. For example, in my country, it is against the law to run a red light, but ambulances are allowed to do so. So I think that it is necessary to violate the traffic laws if a person is carrying a patent whose life is being threatened.
