1. Write a letter to your friend about the reasons you study English.

Your letter should include:

- its importance of English in the age of globalization

- its importance to your job

- its importance to your overseas travel

Dear Loan,

Thank your for your letter. In your letter you have wanted to know how important the English language is in

our country. Now let me keep you informed of the situation. We all know that the present age is an age of

globalization. The world has now become a global village and people have become very close to each other.

Different nations have also come closer to one another and they are making communication with each other.

For this communication purpose, a common language is necessary. And for many reasons English has got

the position of a global language. It is the official language of many international organizations. More than

80% of all the information in the world's computers is in English. Many organizations need employees who

have a good knowledge of English. So, the knowledge of English is mandatory for a good job.

All the books in different branches of science and technology are in English. As a result, English is a must

for higher education and international communication. I hope and believe that you will cultivate the habit of

learning English language. I hope we can talk more about this when we meet.

Yours ever,

Hoa

and explain why you would like to work in this company.

ANSWER - BÀI LÀM GI Ý

Today, I would like to talk about a big company that I would like to work in. Last year, I had a chance to do

an internship in Vincom for 3 months, and it is my dream workplace where I want to apply for a job when I

graduate.

The Vingroup, as you know, is one of the biggest corporations involved in many different key fields, not

only in Vietnam but also in other countries all over the world. Vincom, the real estate company, is supposed

to be the most important sector contributing to the success of the Vingroup. They have taken over a lot of

well-known resorts, luxury villas and apartment buildings (căn hộ) around Vietnam, incorporating a huge

range of additional facilities. My major (chuyên môn) involves (liên quan đến) the property business

(ngành kinh doanh bất động sn), so I decided to do my internship there. It is an extremely big company

with dynamic and loyal staff, and a highly professional working style as well. They formulate their

business strategy clearly and try to reach the targets which they have set. Their staff receive excellent

compensation and benefits packages.

It was a valuable chance for me to broaden my own knowledge not only in my major but also in many

other fields. It enhanced (nâng cao) my soft skills and allowed me to enlarge my social network (mi quan

hxã hi). Therefore, I will try my best to become an employee in Vincom in the near future.

Dear my little brother,

Thank you for your letter. After reading your letter, I feel very concerned of our father’s diabetes (bệnh đái

đường). I think he should exercise more and gently such as jogging, for example. He should not eat salty

food (đồ ăn mặn), because it can cause more serious situation. He would rather have more vegetable and

fruit for a meal than starch and oil food. I suggest he should balance between his work and relaxation.

During his working hours, he should not spend the whole time sitting near his computer. He should walk

around for once two hours. He must not bring his work back to home as before and spend more time on

resting, reading books and newspapers. I think that if he can do the above things well, his healthy status

might be better. Tell me about him after doing all things I says above.

Dear Thu,

I go to work by motorbike every day. Because, I like my motorbike very much because it looks to be very

elegant and energy efficient with large space for keeping things such as motorbike helmet, wallets, etc. and

my house instead of hiring a place for car parking. The motorbike is manufactured by a prestigious company

Dear Thu,

Thank you for your letter. With regards to the story you shared with me about your city, It is regrettable that

Hanoi, where I’m living, is negatively affected by pollution too and the major environmental problems it is

facing are water pollution, air pollution and noise pollution. There are various reasons why this city is

badly polluted. Firstly, due to

modernization (hiện đại hóa), more and more vehicles such as cars and motorbikes are used.This leads to

an increase in exhaust emissions (khí thải) which contaminate the atmosphere, not to mention (đó là chưa

k) the rising level of noise pollution (ô nhim tiếng n). Secondly, factories and industrial zones in the

city have discharged a huge amount of untreated waste (cht thải chưa được xlý) into rivers, causing

death to many fish and other aquatic animals (sinh vt sống trong nước).

In fact, pollution makes people here less healthy, and some even suffer from life-threatening diseases (bnh nguy hiểm) such as lung cancer (ung thư phổ), skin cancer, and so on. Therefore, the government must deal with this problem right away. Cutting down on vehicle use is the best way to reduce air pollution and noise pollution. We can do this by encouraging people to use public transportation. Besides, those who litter (xrác) should pay a heavy fine. Finally, I think the best solution is to raise awareness and educate people to protect the environment.

VOCABULARY

regrettable: [adjective] đáng tiếc

Example: It is regrettable that only a minority of people are concerned about the environment.

exhaust emissions: [noun phrase] khí thi

contaminate: [verb] gây ô nhim

discharge: [verb] thi ra

aquatic: [adjective] (sinh vt) sng trong môi trường nước

life-threatening: [adjective] likely to kill someone.

Example: Aid workers in poor countries often have to deal with difficult,

life-threatening situations.

cutting down on: [phrasal verb] reducing the size, amount or number of something.

Example: You will improve your health by cutting down on cigarettes.

Dear Thu,

After my journey to Danang, I think if I have a chance to move, I would love to settle there. Da Nang is a

coastal city with many beauty spots, fresh air, less traffic jam and cheap cost of living. The price of a house

in Da Nang is also cheaper than in Hanoi. Most important thing is the moderate weather, less harsh than the

weather of Northern. It is very suitable for people with respiratory disease like me. How do you think if I

move to Da Nang?

Please give me an advice.

We have not met each other for a very long time since you move to settle in USA. It was amazing when I

But it is actually 5 years. At that time, we were only 20 years old, but you can do everything. And I am not

able to do anything. So you must teach me to cook. It was such a happy and funny time of our life. I am now

so proud of cooking for my family with a lot of delicious meals and my husband. He loves my foods so

much. I look forward to cook a great meal for you. Will you be free this Sunday? It is my honor if you could

attend our dinner at 7p.m
