IELTS Speaking Model: Cooking - Part 1

IELTS Speaking Model: Cooking - Part 1

IELTS(International English Language Testing System) is the world's leading test of English for higher education, immigration and employment. Below are some sample questions and model answers for the topic ‘Cooking'

Do you know how to cook?
Well to be honest I can't even cook the most basic dishes. When I was a child I once cut my finger chopping vegetables and ever since that day I have avoided kitchens.

Do you like cooking?
I'm afraid not. In my opinion cooking is a skill that is quite difficult to master. The main reason why I'm not a fan of cooking is cuz not only does it take a lot of time to prepare the ingredients but every time you cook you also have clean up afterwards.

Have you thought about learning how to cook?
It has never even crossed my mind. The day I learn to cook is the day pigs fly. Personally speaking cooking is a tedious, time consuming activity so I'm not a fan.

Do you think everyone should learn how to cook? (Why?)
Definitely not, nowadays it's not necessary for everyone to have culinary skills. We could eat out all the time or just find someone who can cook. For example I can't cook at all but my boyfriend is able to cook really well so he normally cooks dinner for me.

Do you eat at home or do you usually eat outside?
Well to be honest I guess it really depends. When I am at school I don't have a choice - I study at a boarding school. So I have to eat at the school canteen every day. However when it's during the holidays I would eat at home cuz to be honest my mum's cooking is the best.
