IELTS Speaking topic: A situation when you received some useful advice

Describe a situation when you received some useful advice.
You should say:
what the situation was
who gave you the advice
what the advice was
and explain how this advice was useful to you.

Well, I guess the important suggestion would be the one my mother gave me about my immigration plan to Australia.

Actually it was a tough decision for me because I led a stable life in Beijing, with a desirable job and decent pay. Besides I had tons of friends here in China. I was sure I would lose much if I went abroad. I was in a dilemma so I appealed to my mother for advise. I told her my reasons of moving abroad and my plan to achieve that. She listened carefully and was obviously concerned about me. She felt my explanations were reasonable and told me that though it would definitely be a bit risky to start a new life in an unfamiliar country, it’s worth making a change to pursue a better living condition cos I was still young to realise my dream. After I told her that I was preparing the IELTS test, my mother suggested that my father was also trying to pass the exam of the certified public accountants at the similar age of mine to improve our standards of living, which inspired me so much.

This conversion was really helpful because apart from mother’s positive advise, I found that every member in my family, including me, was working hard to make our life fruitful.
