IELTS Speaking practice: Food

Part 1

What kinds of meals do you like?

Oh, I adore different meat plates… My mouth is watering whenever I see roast beef, grilled chicken or pork chops… However, I don’t like to cook… That’s why I often eat ready meals and take-aways.

Do you often dinner with your family or friends?

Well, I try to dinner with my family as often as possible… Unfortunately, I don’t have enough time for such dinners due to my busy schedule

When do you usually eat dinner?

I usually have main meal at about 4 p.m. … I’m starving hungry by then and sometimes overeat myself

Are there any fruits or vegetables you don’t like? Why?

Yes, there are… I’m not a fussy eater, but I really hate onions and seafood… I try to avoid meals that might contain these products…

And what is your favourite cuisine?

Well, I love French cuisine for its versatility and flavorful ingredients… French cuisine has a variety of dishes, starting from their famous onion soup and ending with cheese fondue… Also, it rarely uses artificial ingredients or flavors.

Part 2

Now, have a look at the card and prepare a monologue.

Describe a place you like to eat at. You should say:

  • Where is it
  • What kind of food it serves
  • Why do like its food

and how often do you eat there

I would like to talk about a nice little restaurant in a walking distance of my apartment called “La Pasta”… It is situated on the ancient street in the old city centre… This restaurant serves various meals of Italian cuisine that I enjoy… For example, they serve extremely delicious pasta, pizza and tomato soup… I particularly love their pasta… It is very versatile food and can be made in many ways… I general, I love Italian food because it is all about fresh, flavorful ingredients… That’s why I eat in that restaurant every now and then with my family and friends… Although it’s not cheap, its quality justifies the bill

Part 3

How can we make people eat healthier food?

The best approach for this problem is to strike a balance between junk food and healthy food… You can eat unhealthy ever so rarely if you manage to eat nutritious products the majority of the time… I eat junk food myself, by I try not to abuse my health…

Do you think people enjoy what they eat on a regular?

I don’t really know, but I’m leaning towards a negative answer… People are often lazy when choosing their meals… They try to catch a snack to restrain their hunger… But it is neither healthy nor enjoyable…

Do you think that cooking is a pleasure a burden for most people?

I can’t speak for everybody, but I think that cooking is more of a chore than a pleasure… But it really depends on a person… Some people might love cooking… If it is their passion or a beloved job, then it’s good for them… But I’m not among those people… Personally, I prefer dining out.
