in the kitchen. Firstly, we should turn off the lights when we don’t use them. We should open all the

windows to let the light in and it’s good for us. Secondly, we should prepare food carefully before turning

Writing a paragraph about Tet festival./ Writing a paragraph about your favorite festival

Tet is an important festival in Viet Nam. It is celebrated in late January or early February. There are

many activities at Tet . Before Tet, we can enjoy Tet preparation such as buying flowers, food, clothes,

decorating homes and so on. During Tet holiday, we can do many things such as visiting friends ,

relatives, teachers, enjoying special food and so on.Children also receive lucky money too . I like it

because it is a chance for me to relax and to visit anyone I like. I also Iike it because I can enjoy yummy

food at Tet.

Unit 8: Writing a paragraph

You think it is necessary to have a day to celebrate for your parents.

-Why to celebrate this day.

-When to celebrate it.

-How to celebrate it.

131



-What special gifts to give parents.

In Viet Nam people don’t celebrate Parents’ Day. I think it’s necessary to have a day to celebrate for our

parents. Because it is a good chance to express our feelings, memories and love for our parents. It also

helps to enhance family traditions and bring family members closer. I think we should celebrate it on the

first Sunday in June because on this day students don’t go to school and our parents don’t go to work. We

should have a small party. Children should cook special food to serve parents. Children buy gifts, cards to

give their parents. We also take our parents to anywhere they like. I think my idea will be supported and

the day will be celebrated nationwide.

Sample letter to your family



Dear Mom,

I arrived in Nha Trang at 4 yesterday morning. Thanh met me at the train

station, and then he took me home by his motorbike.

Nha Trang is a quiet and beautiful city. It has a long coastline with beautiful

white sandy beaches. I went to the beach very early this morning and enjoyed the

sunrise far out in the sea. Yesterday morning, Thanh and Hoai took me to the Tri

Nguyen Aquarium. It’s very interesting to see many different kinds of fish and sea

creatures. I’ve also visited many interesting places like Cham Temple, Aquarium,

Pasteur Institute. I’ve taken part in some fascinating outdoor activities : mud

bathing, snorkeling and scuba diving. Tomorrow, we are going to spend the evening

visiting a fishing village, where we can get a taste of the local seafood.

I feel so happy and enjoy myself so much. The people here are so nice and

friendly, the food is excellent and the sights are very beautiful. I’ll leave Nha Trang

at 4 pm on Saturday and will arrive home at 5 am on Sunday. Please pick me up at

the train station.
