Tổng hợp câu hỏi và câu trả lời IELTS Speaking Neighborhood Part 1
It’s a peaceful area on the outskirts of (ở ngoại ô) Hanoi. The people are friendly and helpful. The cost of living (chi phí sinh sống) is reasonable, and it is convenient to commute (đi lại) to where I work. And you know what the best part is? It’s simply a few steps to a water park (công viên nước). I guess I couldn’t ask for a more ideal location to call home.
I believe they are just average, everyday citizens (công dân). I haven’t gotten many chances to interact with them. They appear to lead quite hasty lives (có cuộc sống xô bồ) and are unable to be bothered (không muốn làm gì do mệt) to have a chat with their neighbors.
They’re focused on their own family issues (các vấn đề gia đình). We used to be friends with one or two families around here, but then they moved house and we’ve lost contact with them (mất liên lạc) ever since.
I always try to be! I always go out of my way (nỗ lực hết sức) to assist (giúp đỡ) any of my neighbors who are in need (cần sự giúp đỡ), and from what I can tell, my neighbors have also put in the effort to better the entire neighborhood. In addition, I am always willing to help organize community events. So, I believe I am at least a decent (tốt, tử tế) neighbor.

Describe one of your neighbors.
You should say:
- when you two became neighbors
- how often you meet him/her
- whether your neighbor is a good person
and explain why you like/ dislike this neighbor.
Today, I’m going to tell you about one of my neighbors. Her name is Linh. I got to know her a couple of years ago when I first moved to Ha Noi to study.
At that time, I was living in an apartment building, on the ninth floor, to be specific. Normally, I hardly met any of my neighbors because I spent most of my day at my university. However, one day, when I was going to (định làm gì) go up to my floor, a young girl ran up to me and asked me to hold the elevator door.
Then, when she was in the elevator, she introduced herself a little. She was a first year student at Foreign Trade University, and her room was on the ninth floor. I couldn’t believe my ears (không tin được những điều mình vừa nghe), she was at the same school and on the same floor with me. What a coincidence! (Thật là trùng hợp).
We met each other quite often as we shared the same study schedule (có cùng lịch học), and gradually, we became closer. To be honest, in the first place, from her appearance and style of clothes, I gathered that she is someone who is active (năng động) and energetic, but it turned out she is quite bashful. In particular, when she was with me, she was quite talkative, but she would become tongue-tied (líu lưỡi) when she tried to talk to strangers.
As for me, she was an excellent neighbor. She sometimes invited me for a meal and her food was amazing. I think just her food can suffice (đủ để làm gì) to melten (làm tan chảy) heart of any man, let alone her beauty.
I find myself so lucky to have a neighbor like her. She totally gave me a sense of community (tinh thần cộng đồng).

From my observation, it really depends on the neighborhood you are living in. Some might say that neighbors are essential to our lives as they can give us a sense of community (tinh thần cộng đồng), and they even offer help when we are in need (thiếu đồ ăn/ tiền bạc).
However, I guess, this is only the case (là đúng) when you live in a socially cohesive neighborhood (khu phố gắn kết). Otherwise, it would be a nightmare if you lived nearby those who are always gossipy (nhiều chuyện) and inquisitive (tọc mạch) about your private affairs (các chuyện đời tư).
Of course. Getting on well with (có mối quan hệ tốt) neighbors is the nuts and bolts of (thiết yếu) an excellent neighborhood, so I guess children should be taught this from an early age.
This, needless to say, is beneficial for the development of the children. They can learn how to communicate and behave properly (giao tiếp và cư xử đúng mực) with other people, and this is, for sure, a vital skill in their later (sau này) lives. That’s not to mention, building a good relationship (xây dựng một mối quan hệ tốt) with neighbors can give children a sense of community (tinh thần cộng đồng) that can make them feel welcome and safe.
Off the top of my head, there are some problems that can arise (phát sinh) among neighbors.
First, they can have a fight over late night noise (tiếng ồn ban đêm). The noise from late parties can be a nuisance (nỗi phiền toái) to people, especially elderly people, as they might find it hard to fall asleep. What’s more, if this happens continually, it comes as no surprise that (không có gì ngạc nhiên) the noise would drive them crazy (khiến họ tức điên lên) and it might be hard for them to keep their tempers (giữ bình tĩnh).
Another neighborhood conflict (xung đột với hàng xóm) I could think of is over pets. Some might have a dislike for (không thích) pets, like dogs or cats, because they can make a mess (gây bẩn) everywhere. That’s not to mention, if the owners of these pets do not have the common sense (ý thức chung) to clean up after their pets (dọn phân thú nuôi), their neighbors would have to do it, and this, of course, might be root of a dispute between the neighbors and the pets’ owners.
