Part 1: Câu hỏi khởi động về Relationships
Do you see your friends very often?

- Đồng quan điểm
Have you known each other long?

Part 2: Bài nói khoảng 2 phút về chủ đề Relationships
Describe a person you are very close to. You should say:
- who this person is
- when you met them
- where you met them
and say what it is about them you like so much.
I’d like to talk about my boyfriend … Jose … we got to know each other at University almost 4 years ago …
we were in the same department … initially we were just good friends and used to go out in a group with our other friends …
when Jose went back to Spain for the holidays we would keep in touch with each other … then one year he invited me to come to Spain with him … and that’s when we fell for each other  I think …
so you couldn’t really say it was love at first sight  as it had been over a year since we’d met … but we really hit it off and by the time we got back to university in September we were able to tell all our friends that we were in a relationship …
what do I like about Jose … well he’s very kind … very funny … and very supportive … and we’re really well matched in our interests … he hasn’t popped the question  yet though … we’ve talked about getting married and I think we’re both ready to settle down and have children … we’ll just have to wait and see …
- giữ liên lạc với nhau
- đã yêu nhau
- yêu từ cái nhìn đầu tiên
- rất ủng hộ, hỗ trợ
- thực sự phù hợp với sở thích của chúng tôi
- đặt câu hỏi
- sẵn sàng ổn định
Part 3: Những câu hỏi mở rộng hơn về Relationships
Do you think marriage is still as important as ever?
Yes … it certainly is in my country … I think the problem for some people is a lack of commitment … all relationships have their ups and downs …. but some people prefer to break up rather than working at the relationship.
- thiếu cam kết
What do you think is the ideal time to get married?
Personally … I think you should wait until you’ve found yourself first … decided if you want a career … perhaps do some travelling … you should do this before tying the knot … although if you fall head over heels in love , plans like these can easily be forgotten.
- kết hôn
- yêu say đắm
Is it important to keep in contact with our friends when we’re in a relationship?
Absolutely … it’s so easy to drift apart from your friends  when you fall in love … but I think both partners should try not to lose touch with their friends  … that’s the best way to have a healthy relationship  with your partner.
- tách khỏi bạn bè của bạn
- mất liên lạc với bạn bè của họ
- mối quan hệ lành mạnh
