Recently, Daniel moved back to Korea. He used to be my boss, but we became very close friends and even like brothers at work. It’s a bit sad now that he’s gone. Daniel was the manager of the company I’ve been working with for the past 5 years, and he was the one who discovered me. We became really good friends, and he taught me a lot of things and gave me many work opportunities.
When I visited him in Korea, I saw his new place, which is completely different from what we have here in the Philippines. Everything is digitalized, his front door and his kitchen is well-organized and he has fancy appliances that he didn’t have back in our country. The fancy elevator that led to his room was impressive, and even the bed had an elegance that was quite different from what we were used to in my country. He’s come a long way – from a single bed to a queen size bed because he will get married.
Despite his departure, I see this as a positive impact on my life. Daniel was my mentor for the past five years, and now I need to step up and fill his shoes. Although it’s challenging, I believe it’s a life-changing experience for me.
IELTS Speaking Part 3
1. Why do some young people keep moving?
Well, one reason is that they believe the grass is greener on the other side. Some people like to hop jobs because it offers them better opportunities and higher salaries. When you stay in a company for a long time, your growth might be limited to your performance, but by exploring different jobs, you can bring your skills, connections, and best practices from one company to another. Another reason is that some individuals seek better opportunities in different locations. For example, they might want to work in a big company and choose to live closer to work to reduce commuting time.
2. What’s the difference between living alone and living with roommates?
One key difference is privacy. Living alone gives you the luxury of having your own place where you can do whatever you want and design your space creatively. However, it also means bearing all the expenses on your own. On the other hand, having roommates may reduce your privacy and restrict design choices, but it allows you to share resources and divide expenses.
3. Is it positive for young people to live by themselves?
Yes, living by oneself can be a positive thing, despite some drawbacks. It allows young people to gain independence, becoming less of a burden to their families. Being able to take care of oneself is a valuable skill that fosters self-reliance and personal growth.
4. Besides cooking, are there any other skills that people need to learn if they live on their own?
Apart from cooking, other essential skills for living on one’s own include repair and maintenance of the house. Being able to handle basic household repairs can save money and increase self-sufficiency. Additionally, having good financial skills, such as budgeting and managing bills, is crucial to ensure a stable living situation.
5. What kinds of people tend to live by themselves?
People who have enough financial means to support themselves without relying on family or roommates are likely to live by themselves. Additionally, those who value freedom and privacy may choose to live alone. Some individuals, like writers and creatives who require a quiet environment, may also opt for living independently in remote areas.
6. How can parents and teachers help young people to live independently?
Parents and teachers can help young people develop independence by gradually assigning them responsibilities from an early age. By allowing children to handle responsibilities, they learn to be self-reliant and develop the habit of taking initiative. For instance, parents can let their children take charge of household chores, and over time, it becomes a natural part of their routine, making them more responsible adults.
