Speaking Sample: Describe a quiet place you like to go to
Frankly speaking, I am an introverted girl, so in general, spaces with tranquillity enchant me the most. However, living in a bustling city like Hanoi with almost every corner full of chaos and motorbike horns barely give me any chance to immerse myself in such an enjoyable feeling of quietness.
So, today, I would like to tell you about one unique place with perfect peace and quiet that I always wish to come, especially whenever my life throws me a curveball and push me to be in the depths of despair. It’s my dad’s well-manicured flower garden in my peaceful provincial hometown. To be honest, my dad is a dedicated florist. So, since I was a little girl, I spent most of my time helping my parents with small gardening tasks like seeding, getting rid of weeds, and trimming undesired stems for chrysanthemums. Because the garden is right in the middle of an immense paddy field, most of the time – you can just hear the sounds of breezes gently blowing through rice leaves, birds chirping on the tops of some far big banian trees, and frogs croaking when the evening falls. During springs when Tet is approaching, my dad’s garden would be packed with colorful flowers blossoming gorgeously such as white and lacy heath-bells, elegant saturated red dahlia, and yellow mellow chrysanthemums waving in the wind. I’m always enraptured by this glorious moment.
Unfortunately, now the garden is shrinking down with more perennial fruit trees, in replacement for delicate blossoms as providentially, my brother, sister and I have been mature enough and settled down with our stable jobs. So, my dad no longer has to shoulder a heavy financial burden like before. However, whenever I return to my hometown and contemplate the current lush green garden, all of my idyllic childhood memory is still just conjured up vividly and vigorously. Therefore, the garden until now is my most cherished place, which helps me remain aware of my true self, my deep root. In the future, no matter where I live, who I become, deep down inside, I am still a humble countryside girl with lots of ambition and passion for life.
