Describe a sporting event you have been to.
You should say:
- what it was
- why you went there
- who you went with
- whether you enjoyed it.
I’m not actually very interested in sports, but there was an occasion a few years ago when I went to see a football match in a stadium about half an hour from where I live. It was a charity match – I think they were raising funds for the local school – and it was very well-attended.
I only went because a friend of mine really wanted to go but didn’t want to watch it on his own, so in the end there were a small group of us. One of the other people we went with was going anyway because his brother was in one of the teams, so it made it a lot more fun to have a team to support; otherwise I wouldn’t have really minded either way who won!
Honestly, we were only half focused on the game and spent the rest of the time just chatting and eating! After the match, we met a lot of new people in the park nearby – most of them stayed for at least a few hours after the game just enjoying the sunshine. As I mentioned, I’m not that keen on sport, but I do like the social aspects of it.
- to be interested in/ keen on (hứng thú về): enthusiastic about something.
- stadium (sân vận động): a sports arena with seats for spectators.
- charity (từ thiện): the voluntary giving of help, typically in the form of money, to those in need.
- to raise fund/ to do fundraising (gây quỹ): gather a sum of money for a particular purpose, especially for a charity.
- to be well-attended (nhiều người tham dự): having lots of people presented.
- on one’s own = (all) by oneself (một mình).
- to mind (để ý, bận tâm): to be careful of, or give attention to something.
- half focused on (không tập trung lắm): not giving a full attention to something.
- the rest of the time (thời gian còn lại): the remaining part of time.
- social aspect (khía cạnh xã hội).
