    Gaining a recognized position & earning incredibly high salary in your field of expertise are most people’s dreams. To pursue these payoffs, workers work hard and students study hard. However, achieving that goal in a decent manner is far from easy. As a result, some people use their own talent and their endeavor, whereas some choose shorter and less transparent ways.
    Recently, the IELTS community has solicited a wave of anger for some highly respected trainers whose names are so familiar to us. Some of these instructors either exaggerated or falsified their IELTS certificates to deceive the public. To make matters worse, when the information of these wrongdoings leaked, the convicted opted for making excuses, beating around the bush or giving no explanation instead of apologizing to their learners for their misbehavior.
    Due to these recent scandals, it got me thinking that whether these wrongdoers had once thought about possible responsibilities they would bear if someone detected it one day. In addition, these scandalous events could have higher chances of becoming stigmas which are hard to fade away for many years to come.
    As for psychological reasons, we people usually face the dilemma of prioritizing between existing monetary benefits and our code of conduct – a so-called “work ethics”.
    Let’s join us and share some of your thoughts about this topic!!!
    QUESTIONS TO PONDER:

        In your expertise, can you share with us about case studies of people who are willing to take risks and ignore their work ethics to achieve their goals?
        Being an angel bears a striking difference to being an evil. Which one is your preference, sticking to your belief system of doing the right thing or pursuing your goals at all costs?
        Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes, offenders are involved in illegal acts due to their family burdens such as cases of prostitution or petty crimes. Do you agree or disagree with this idea?

    BREAK-UP (May 12, 2019)

    (11:31:39 AM 10/05/2019)

    Break-ups seem no strange to me  at all. In reality, I have gone through many minor break-ups and a huge  break-up in my life, thanks to each of which my life turned a new leaf.
      Recently, the high-profile divorce (a huge break-up) between the famous  Trung Nguyen couple shocked the public and I contemplated the high  possibilities of break-ups in a person’s life.  Solid and stable as any relationship seems, no one can anticipate  coming changes, many of which are toxic to your relationships.
      Your  boyfriend meets and falls for someone prettier. Your girlfriend may  want to go her own way after the graduation when she was approached by a  more mature and highly educated man. Your spouse is too hurtful to put  up with your infidelity or your thoughtlessness (lack of care for  women’s emotional needs) kills every piece of love day by day. In many  cases, break-ups are inescapable.
      I heard many stories of girls or  boys torturing or killing themselves after break-ups with their partner.  What they leave behind are heart-broken parents and unfulfilled dreams  to build a bright life ahead. On the other hand, many people choose to  move on with an intense aspiration to be more successful and more  devoted to their life goal.
      I myself chose the second option.  Break-ups are of course painful to everyone, but putting them down to  experience and thanking them for encouraging your self-improvement may  definitely lead you to an even fruitful relationship in the future. What  do you think?
      Come to Advance Hanoi this Sunday to discuss this  interesting topic and enjoy a typical joyful Sunday with tea break and  dinner.
     
    QUESTIONS TO PONDER:

     1. What are possible causes of  break-up in love? How are they different from the causes of break-ups in  marriages? Many people attribute most break-ups to financial problems.  Do you think finance matters much?
     2. What instils a man to break up  with his partner? How is it different from the causes of a woman  wishing to break up with her guy?
     3. Vietnamese married couples  many years ago used to be fear break-up, but now things have changed.  What do you think these changes are?
     4. Break-ups are more painful to girls/women than boys/men. How do you find this statement?
     5. In some cases, break-ups are beneficial to both. What are the signs of a positive break-up?
     6. Why do you think many people can hardly get over their break-up?  What should they do to build more resilience to break-ups? What lessons  should they learn from a break-up?
