4. Câu hỏi thường gặp trong Chủ đề Talk about your hobby – Part 1
4.1. Do you have a hobby?
Yes of course. It is reading books. You know books are the best way for me to unwind after a long day at work. It is also a perfect source of knowledge that helps me to learn more about the world.
4.2. What free-time activity is the most popular for Vietnamese young people?
I guess it is to spend time in the coffee shops either alone or with friends. There, they may read a book, tap their phone or chat with their friends. You know this habit is so common that so many foreign photographers come to Vietnam just to capture all the coffee shops for their own photo collection.
4.3. Why is having a hobby important for us?
Well, to be honest, it is a crucial part of life because it helps us relax and forget about our stressful work for a while. Without it, such a tight work schedule can lead me to depression and worse emotional issues.

I assume hobbies like gambling and playing card games with money involved are not good because they are really risky. Moreover, they will even cause addiction. I have seen my friends lose all their money after some rounds of card games and I will never try them for sure.

5. Bài mẫu về chủ đề Talk about your favorite hobby
5.1. Bài mẫu Talk about your hobby – Listening to music
Listening to music has always been my go to activity for all occasions. My love for music can be traced back to when I was a child. There are recorded videos of me as a child becoming hyperactive whenever music was played. I would run to the stereo, turn on the music to full volume and start running around dancing. Anyone who dared touch the sound system would face my wrath. Music was the only thing that could calm me down whenever I cried.

I always have this weird feeling that my destiny is somehow intertwined with music. In my early teenage years, my girlfriends and I would sneak into the garage, where my brother and his band mates kept their musical equipment. Then, we would pluck guitar strings and knock the drums in an effort to compose our favorite songs. I was the lead singer by the way.
Unfortunately for my brother and I, nothing much came out of the practice. It was not just me and my brother, music runs in the whole family. I remember vividly on Friday nights, we used to do karaoke sessions where everyone took turns to sing a song, including our parents. We had these sessions recorded and then sent to our neighbors for analysis.
The winner would get a prize, bought from our individual savings. We saved money on a weekly basis purely for the competition. Needless to say, we were the creepy neighbors next door, but that did not stop me from claiming most of the prizes. Eventually, we outgrew the karaoke sessions and now, I mostly do the listening rather than the singing.
Music gives me the needed refuge whenever I feel like my head is spinning and I just want to shut out everything around me. The good thing about music is that there is music for every occasion and feeling. Whenever I feel depressed, I listen to sad songs. They guide me and keep me company during those trying moments. Whenever I’m happy, I have a collection of party songs that I dance to for hours to amplify the good feeling. The beauty of music is that it can be incorporated with other hobbies. For instance, I love reading a good book, as nice orchestra music is playing in the background.
Another good thing about music is that it is universal. You do not have to understand what the musician is saying for you enjoy it. If it makes you feel good, then it is worth listening to it. I’m naturally open minded when it comes to music. I have an extensive collection of music that transcends across many genres all over the globe. It wouldn’t come as a surprise therefore to find several African songs in my phone that I really rock with and have no idea what they are talking about. However, I connect more with Country and Rock music.
5.2. Bài mẫu Talk about your hobby – Traveling
Travelling is one of those few activities that has a kind of reset button in our lives. You go away for a few days or weeks and come back fresh and ready to take on challenges of life head on. Travelling to many people is a matter of convenience, rather than a recreation activity. They only travel when they have an issue to attend to. Travelling is also not for escapists, as many people tend to believe. I used the word ‘escapists’ not in the literary sense of the word, but rather to mean people who run away from their problems. Travelling is a hobby like any other.
Most people do not understand how moving from one place to another can be categorized together with fun activities like watching movies, swimming, dancing or drawing. While it has more challenges than other hobbies, it is more adventurous and brings the same level of satisfaction or more for those who love it.
Travelling has always been part of our family tradition. My parents taught us from an early age the value of taking vacations at least once a year. Though they wished we could go for many trips annually, we were not well off financially and my parents had to work creatively with the little they had, sometimes saving the whole year for a single trip.
We could have used credit cards, but that would have only plunged us into more financial woes. My father was very strict when it came to finances and he cautioned us against using debt to purchase luxuries. If we wanted something, then it was up to us to find creative and legal ways of making money to purchase it.
Although we didn’t have much, money was never an excuse for him. My parents found creative ways to work within the budget. For instance, we would drive to our destination instead of flying and we would carry my mom’s homemade meals. Rarely did we use credit cards and if we did, it was a matter of life and death. Therefore, most of our vacations were during the December holidays. Those were the best days of my life. They were also the days that our family bonds were strengthened. We would fight and quarrel, but in the end we always came back together and worked things out.
From those trips, we learnt more about life than the years we spent at home. What I have just stated may seem farfetched to a person who does not travel much, considering the brevity of vacations, but the reality is vacations never go as planned. Vacations are far from the normal life routines of waking up in the morning, going to work/school and coming back home in the evening. In vacations, there are many risks involved. You are in a foreign land with new people and culture. You have to work with the little funds you have to make the trip as entertaining as possible, but with some level of constraint, so that your family is not stranded.
The beauty of travelling is that you can never really outgrow it. I still do vacations as an adult, although my reasons may be slightly different from my parents. Apart from the obvious reason of having a good time and distracting my mind from the daily hassles, vacations release ‘creative juices’ in me. Working as a writer, I tend to feel burnt out living in the same environment for too long. Sometimes, I need a change of scenery for my artistry to see the light of day. It is a known fact in the literary world that most of the best writers had their best ideas in foreign lands.
I occasionally go for vacations for the sole reason of learning different cultures and interacting with different people to get ideas for my literary work. Furthermore, being away from home really makes you appreciate it even more. The feeling you get after a vacation when you settle down on your couch and just relax is priceless. Travelling makes you appreciate people, their cultures and above all, it makes you appreciate your life and the little you have.
5.3. Bài mẫu Talk about your hobby – Reading book
I’m passionate about reading. Although I have several hobbies, such as watching movies and hiking, reading books is what resonates well with me. There are many reasons why I love reading. The first reason is it gives me a level of fulfillment. That is, books rejuvenate me. After reading a book, I feel like a whole new being and my outlook in life changes.
The second reason is books make my mind sharp. It is a known fact that books improve our brain muscles. They make us think better and improve our decision making abilities. I find it funny that whenever I utter a clever quote from a book, everyone around me would be dumbfounded.
Furthermore, books are very wide and detailed. It seems like there is a book for anything you can think of. If you want religious books, there is the Bible, the Quran and other spiritual books. There are financial books, inspirational books, cooking books, business-related books, biographies, fictional and non-fictional- the list is endless. Reading is actually among the few hobbies that you learn while doing it.
Due to my widely acquired knowledge from books, I find it easy to jumpstart a conversation with a stranger. I realized that people are more responsive when you engage them in topics they are familiar with. This is where I have an upper hand over other people, because I’m quite knowledgeable in many sphere of life thanks to books.
While most people find reading an upheaval task, reading to me is like a calling. It just comes naturally to me. I have made it my culture to read at least a chapter before I hit the sack. Sometimes I read late into the night, especially during the weekends and I only stop when my head becomes too drowsy to continue. My reading culture is further heightened by my introversion.
Most of my ‘me-time’ is actually spent on reading. This is how I get my energy back. The outside can be too overwhelming for some of us. Whenever I feel like my energy has been milked dry by the outside world, I just take a few hours of reading to rekindle my spirits again.
5.4. Bài mẫu Talk about your hobby – Running
Today I am going to talk about a hobby I particularly enjoy when I am at home in the UK. I will tell you what the hobby is; how long I have been doing it; who I do it with and why it is important to me.
My hobby is running! I know I do not really look like a runner, and it is true I am not very fast, but this is still the activity that I like to do in my spare time.
I have not been running for very long. I started running just 18 months ago, as I decided I needed to get fit, and I thought it would be a cheap way to exercise. I did not expect to enjoy myself. Near to where I live, there is a park. It is very beautiful with trees and streams. Each Saturday a large group of about 500 people meet at 9.00 a.m. in the morning and go for a 5 km run together. This event is called Parkrun, and it happens in over 300 different places in the UK each week.
I was nervous when I first went but found the group was friendly and encouraging. Now I go every week, and I even have trained for some longer races 10 km and my longest was 20 k.m.!
I have made lots of friends through running. However, the best surprise was that when I went to my local Parkrun, I met someone I had not seen for over 30 years! We had been at school together but did not keep in touch. We had both moved to the new city of Sheffield and did not realise we lived so close to each other. Now I run with this friend every week, and we go for breakfast each Saturday after our run.
Running is important to me because it keeps me fit, has helped me make new friends, and it has shown me that I am not too old to try new things! I hope you all find activities that you enjoy doing in your spare time!
5.5. Bài mẫu Talk about your hobby – Going to the Gym
Let me tell you about a pastime activity that I enjoy the most.
It is going to the gym which I have been doing for 2 years. I started it because I have a friend who is a professional gymmer. It was him who encouraged me to try it and thanks to him I can have a nice body like now.
I always reach the gym near my office everyday after work because it is the time I am free and also the time I need to unwind after stressful hours at work. However, on Sunday, I take a day off because my body needs to rest, and my muscles need to recover from intense practice.
In terms of the benefit, I receive from this hobby, I would say it is the best way to gain a well-shaped body. Besides, it gives me a chance to enhance my physical health as well as to avoid some mental issues like depression or stress.
There are even more reasons for me to love this pastime activity. Firstly, for sure it gives me good physical health and a nice body. Secondly, at the gym, I have an opportunity to make friends with those who share the same cup of tea with me, who come from different backgrounds and social classes. Third, since I took up the gym, my mental health has been more stable, and I see life on a more positive side.
Those are the reasons why I choose working out at the gym as my hobby. I hope I will still have a passion for it for a long time.
5.6. Bài mẫu Talk about your hobby – Playing video game
In my free time, I like playing video games on my PS4. I started this hobby three years ago when my dad gave me a PS4 as my 18th birthday present. It is one of the best gifts I have ever received, and I play it almost every day because it is a great form of entertainment and helps me to boost my mood. However, my parents only let me use it after I finish all my homework and I can’t play more than 2 hours a day.
I am a shy person and I have trouble fitting in and making friends in real life. Therefore, video games can be a refuge for me to find people to connect with in a positive way. They also give me something to talk about at school as games are a mainstream topic of conversation.
In addition, playing video games is very interesting because at the heart of every video game is a challenge. Some games offer me the chance to take on a problem and work to find a solution, such as “The last two of us”, and I believe learning to think on my feet and strategize in a fast-paced fantasy environment is a useful skill that can translate to the real world. With video games, I either win or I keep trying, learning from my mistakes as I progress until reaching the goal, which makes me become a more persistent person.
5.7. Bài mẫu Talk about your hobby – Cooking
Some people may think cooking is just a daily chore to make meals, but for me, cooking is the best hobby to have, because it can be very useful in life. It’s highly likely that the food you create in your kitchen will be much healthier than the processed foods you find in supermarkets. Likewise, you can ensure that it’s lower in calories and more nutritious than the meals served up in restaurants and fast food outlets.
Cooking the perfect meal is going to bring a smile to my face. Sometimes I could be in the foulest of moods beforehand, but once I taste my food and see the reactions of my loved ones eating it, my frown will be turned upside-down. I believe cooking a homemade meal for our loved ones can provide us with a great feeling of accomplishment.
Aside from health benefits, cooking is also a great way to explore other cultures. Trying new foods from different cultures can lead us to find new favourite dishes, but it can also lead us to a deeper appreciation of the culture and the people. Therefore, I feel like I can expand my horizons and taste the world from the comfort of my own kitchen. Cooking can also be meditative and relaxing when we take our time and really get into it.
5.8. Bài mẫu Talk about your hobby – Playing a musical instrument
Today I would like to talk about playing a musical instrument – a great hobby to have. I started playing the piano when I was five years old and still really enjoy it now: it’s a perfect way to relax and cheers me up when I’m feeling down. When I lived at home with my parents, we had a lovely reddish-brown piano in the house, and I had piano lessons every week.
When I was studying or writing an essay, I used to take a break to play something energetically. It really helped me feel better. In addition, I believe I could develop a lot of skills while playing the piano, such as multitasking. This is because I had to focus on rhythm and tempo, pitch and volume, melody, and harmony all at once. At the same time, I was also focusing on finger positions, body posture, and more.
However, when I went to university, I had to leave my family, my home and my piano behind. I wish that pianos were as portable as guitars and trumpets because I really miss spending time on my hobby. I still listen to a lot of classical music by my favorite composers like Beethoven and Chopin. I find that, especially when I’m listening to a tune that I can play, I feel nostalgic for the piano keyboard. You can really get attached to a musical instrument because playing music involves lots of emotion.
