Model Answers

  • Question: Do most people eat vegetables in your country?
  • Answer: Yes, they do. Almost every meal has either rice or potatoes and also another vegetable as well, such as cabbage, carrots, green beans or something like that. Quite a lot of people have a small proportion of vegetables to meat but at least they always have some kind of vegetable with their meal.


  • Question: Are there many vegetarians in your country?
  • Yes, quite a lot. Many people choose to avoid eating meat and their diet consists of both vegetables and grains. There are quite a few restaurants in my city which cater to vegetarians and offer the most wonderful dishes such as fried aubergine, spinach and potato, onion cakes and things like that. They’re actually very delicious.

  1. Hi Liz, How can I get all of your speaking lessons?

  2. Eat your beans was such a good stuff that i got from your website and i request you to post some more vedios like this 😊

  3. Good job Liz, very well done. This is what I was looking for. Actually I came across your site by googling the expression ‘ eat your greens ‘ and I was kind of amazed. Keep it up ! Take care. Alessio

    • I’m really pleased you found my site, Alessio! I only made that video for fun one day 🙂 I’ll try and make more English language videos next year.

      • I’d be chuffed to bits because you seem to be such an efficient communicator. Looking forward to other videos of yours then. Keep in touch

  4. hi liz
    Do you think interviewer read the person profile ( age, education, religion, nationality… and ask them accordingly?
    or the topics are just picked randomly?

  7. Hi, dear Liz, I found yr website quite interesting, Thanks for giving lots of information and encouraging people who are in doubt.
    My daughter-in-law has to pass IELTS Skills for Life test.
    Could you recommend the best way to study preparation for speaking and listening as this is the requirement. Grade 4 will be enough to pass the test. What level is it? Elementary? Pre-intermediate or all together?
    The topics are covered in skills for the UK?

    Next October, i have an ielts exam. Thanks to your useful topics, I feel more confident about myself. Because i am learning ielts all by myself. i hope that you will upload many lessons for everyone. Have a good day

  11. Thank you very much for your generosity in sharing your lessons to me!
    In listening, if I’m not sure about two possible answers, can i write both with the hope that i can be marked the correct one?
    Please give me an advice!
    Thanks a lot!

    • If you write two answers, they will both be marked wrong. The words you put in the box on the answer sheet must match the answers that IELTS have – word for word.
      All the best
