IELTS Speaking Part 1 COOKING


  1. Can you cook?
    Option 1: Yes, I’m confident to say that I’m quite a good cook. I often cook traditional Vietnamese dishes for my family and friends, and they really like my masterpieces.
    Sometimes, I learn how to cook foreign dishes by following some recipes in the Internet and watch clips on YouTube, and it turns out really good.
    Option 2: I would say, I am just fine at cooking. I can surely cook food for myself or two other people but not for a huge bunch of people. Neither do I know how to cook the great delicacies that my mother can cook.
  2. Do you often do any cooking?
    Option 1: Normally I don’t frequently cook at home on weekdays because I have no time. But on weekends, I usually cook food at home for my family.
    Option 2: I am working woman and currently living with a friend in a new city. Initially we did not cooked, but now we are cooking daily.
  3. Do you like cooking? (Why?/Why not?)
    Yes, I’m quite into cooking because I believe that good dinner could guarantee our health and also I’m a foodie, I’d like to taste all kinds of tasty food. I always do some cooking in my home with my family during the weekend to enjoy the family time.
  4. Do you think children should help their parents prepare meals?
    I remember when I was a little boy, I was used to help wash the vegetables, go out to buy some flavors, etc. I strongly recommend that children should take part in this kind of housework because it can help cultivate the hands-on abilities, a sense of achievement and even learn some table manners.
  5. Who taught you how to cook?
    My mother was a great teacher who often showed me step by step how to cook a traditional Vietnamese dish. I’ve learnt a lot of cooking skills/techniques from her. Besides, as I’ve just mentioned, I sometimes follow recipes from the Internet or learn from well-known chefs like Gordon Ramsay.
  6. Is it important for husbands to know how to cook?
    I think yes. It takes away the monarchy of woman in the kitchen. Even more, it strengthens the bond between the husband and wife. A woman when eats the food made by husband would definitely love him more. Because, it shows that the man treats her equally and respects her.
