May to August 2019 IELTS Speaking Topic #54 Describe an outdoor activity you want to try for the first time

Describe an outdoor activity you want to try for the first time.
You should say:
what it is
where you will do this;
whether it is difficult to do;
and explain why you would like to do it.

I would like to try swimming, which I think will be very useful for my future. I came across this idea at my Uncle Steven’s family party several months ago. Steven used to be an excellent swimmer at Beijing Swimming Centre. Many people are interested in this sport, of course, including me. They all think it requires a lot of knowledge and training. For example, I need to know how to get used to floating and exhaling underwater. So, I will take some swimming courses at the local fitness centre and buy a good-looking swimsuit.

I want to learn this sport all because of what my Uncle Steven told me at that party. It was on a warm Saturday afternoon when my father and I were invited to his house for a family party. In the middle of the party, my uncle started to talk about the benefits of swimming. I then discovered that swimming can improve both flexibility and strength, and it even can help develop a positive attitude. What’s more, swimming can give you a chance to just relax and forget about work, problems, and other things. Soon, I was totally amazed by what he said. So, I really want to learn how to swim.
