IELTS Speaking Part 2
Describe a café you enjoy/have been to. You should say:
- Where it is
- How often you go there
- When you usually go there
- Why you like to visit this café
I’m an introvert and not really keen on socializing with others, so I often find a noiseless spot to frequent to every time I’m stressed out from work study. It is the small and cozy café within a walking distance from my house.
Unlike other coffee shops in the vicinity of my neighborhood, the atmosphere here is extremely tranquil and serene, which greatly lives up to my expectation. As a person with heavy amounts of daily workload. The café gives me a certain degree of peacefulness and calmness, especially during nerve-racking times like final exams when I am up to ears in assignments.
What leaves the most profound impression on me is the complete silence in the café as the shop owner fortunately is not interested in music of any kind, so no background music is expected when you come here. I can increase my concentration span while reading a book or other materials and finish work with great productivity, compared to when I’m at home, surrounded by many disturbances like babies crying and neighbors arguing. One bonus point is that the coffee there is second to none which caters to my unique tastes! The foods are really scrumptious, giving me great refreshing energy when suffering from fatigue and stress I have to admit.

QUESTION FOR PART 3
What do old people like to eat?
Personally speaking, the elderly are more into vegetables and fruits rather than meat. As they have grown old, the fiber and vitamins obtained from the intake of salads, tomatoes, bananas and so on are particularly good for their health. By contrast, meat does harm to their digestive system. It’s also worth mentioning that the older citizens can’t chew thick pieces of meat, so they’d rather eat fish, which is softer and can be easily digested.
Intake (noun) the amount of a chemical or another substance that enters your body
And so on (phrase) etc; (used instead of mentioning more of a similar type of thing that has already been mentioned)
By/in contrast (phrase) used when you are comparing two things or people and saying that the second one is very different from the first
Do harm to somebody/something (phrase) cause physical or psychological damage or injury
Digestive system (noun) a group of organs working together to convert food into energy and basic nutrients to feed the entire body.
How important is it for a country to be able to grow all the food it needs, without importing any from other countries?
In recent times it hasn’t been that important as it’s been easy enough to import anything that was required. Maybe in the future there will be more emphasis on being independent in terms of food production, as well as other essential resources such as energy and fuel, it looks like there are going to be some major changes which could affect everyone in terms of how we look at out ability to survive in the event of another world conflict where food and possibly water become scarce.
