Ielts Speaking Model: A Picnic or Meal Outdoors - Part 2

Updated on June 15, 2013


Ielts Speaking Model: A Picnic or Meal Outdoors - Part 2

IELTS(International English Language Testing System) is the world's leading test of English for higher education, immigration and employment. Below is a sample question and model answer for the topic ‘A Picnic or Meal Outdoors’

Describe a picnic or meal that you ate outdoors.

You should say

Where you had this meal

Who was with you

What you ate and drank

And explain why you enjoyed this picnic or outdoor meal.

Well actually I don’t really eat outdoors much but I had an outdoor barbecue last summer. My dad is a big fan of American TV dramas and he often sees people go out to have a barbecue on those shows so he planned a barbecue at the beach. The reason why the barbecue was held at the beach was cuz there was plenty of space and we could also do some fishing too – I actually spent 2 hours that day next to the fishing rod but didn’t catch anything.

To prepare for this of course we bought the cooking equipment and meat – a lot of meat! My dad also had to practice making a few burgers at home so that he didn’t look like a fool on the actually day we had the barbecue. Of course we called our friends about a month in advance to tell them to keep their calendars free.

Most people who went this event also brought a plate of food or drinks so we had a variety of food and drinks – including alcohol. In the end the outdoor barbecue was a great success. Most people satisfied with the food and how my dad organized this barbecue.

As you know summer is coming and since the last outdoor barbecue was such a success I think we maybe have another one this summer. There is a girl from my class that I especially would like to ask to this party – if the party is a success I’m might ask her out, if it fails I'll ask her out anyway (tough competition).
