Model answer

ielts speaking Family tradition

My favourite family tradition is most certainly Lunar New Year, which is celebrated on the first month in Lunar January. Tet is a wonderful holiday. Actually, everyday should be some days of Lunar New Year. My family loves to celebrate this holiday.

It is a yearly tradition for our family to gather at my grandma’s house for Tet Holidays. I always look forward to this event. My cousins and other family members that I do not get to see often are there. My grandma and other family members prepare some traditional meal, decorate home . There is always plenty for everyone. The main thing is of course the kumquat trees .When I was younger, I would always want to have more lucky money.

Tet holidays are always a good time of fellowship and bonding for my family. We usually talk about experiments over last years. Sometimes after everyone is done eating, we play card. You can see why this is a favorite tradition for me and my family. I wish we could do it more often.

Model answer

ielts speaking family

I think that the person who is the most successful in my family would be my father. I think also that the answer to the question ‘Who is the most successful person in your family?’ basically depends on what you think ‘success’ means, so, my answer is in the context of working life, rather than personal life. And that’s why I’ve chosen my dad. He has a job that is rewarding. He feels like he’s accomplishing something, that is obviously personally and professionally satisfying, but he also feels like he’s contributing to society in a positive way, which is a quality that a lot of jobs these days seem to lack and is something that I gauge success on.

It’s a bit hard to explain exactly what he does, but basically he works for a charitable organisation that runs retirement homes for old people, especially old people who haven’t got much money. It’s a management job, but working in a context which is really worthwhile.

His success is due to a lot of different things basically … finding the right job for him, one that suited him and his personality as well as his qualifications, and the goals that he wants to reach in his working life. But he’s also just worked hard over a lot of years, which means that it’s more likely that he’ll be successful, I guess, if success comes from hard work, which it often does.

I see my dad very regularly, about once a week. We often eat breakfast together before we go to our respective workplaces, so, yes, I think that I’d have to say he was the most successful because he enjoys what he does, as well as making a decent living out of it and I admire that in him. I think that in a work context this is what success means.
