Band 8 Sample Answer
(When did you invite them?) I am a very sociable person and love to connect with people. Either I invite people to my place for dinners, or we go to restaurants. Recently, one of my cousins from Australia had returned to India. So, I decided to take her out for dinner. (Where did you have dinner?) She insisted on trying all the new dishes, so I took her to ‘Absolute Barbeque, ‘ located a million miles away from my home. We took a cab and reached the place, and to our astonishment, there were many people. With zero options, we also waited. (Why did you invite them?) She visited India rarely and deeply missed Indian food. So I decided to take her to this place where one can enjoy many delicacies, and also have unlimited food. Soon, we grabbed a table, and she was startled to witness the restaurant’s contemporary theme and the unique concept of the flag on the table. I explained to her about it and the unlimited food concept.
(How you felt about this dinner?) Later, we enjoyed the Indian, Arabian, and Chinese delicacies alongside the Live Cricket Match from IPL Tournament. She thanked me for taking her to such a fantastic restaurant as she missed these dishes in Australia. Overall, It was a wonderful evening that we enjoyed. I believe that everyone should often go out for dinners as it’s an excellent way to build healthy relationships.

IELTS Speaking Part 3 (Discussion)
Where do people in your country usually eat? At restaurants or at home?
Most people in my country usually eat food prepared at home. One in a hundred may eat in the restaurant. This is because food prepared at home is highly nutritious and healthy. In contrast, the food served in restaurants is high in fat and contains bad cholesterol and calories.
Why do more and more people like to eat at restaurants rather than at home?
Any people like to eat at restaurants because of two reasons. They might not know how to cook or maybe are too lazy to buy groceries and cook the food at home. In the case of restaurants, you’re just an order away, and the food is on your table.
What are the advantages and disadvantages of eating at home?
Advantages of eating at home are you get nutritious food which is fewer in calories and fats. It is less expensive, and properly spiced. But there are disadvantages too. Cooking takes a lot of time and will not be immediately ready when you are hungry. Also, you need to buy groceries, prepare the dish, and wash the utensils. Therefore, some people might think it’s convenient to eat outside.
Do you think it is possible that everyone will eat at restaurants instead of at home in the future?
Not necessarily! Nowadays, many people are becoming health conscious, so they prefer eating home-cooked food that is nutritious and healthy. Restaurant foods are high in calories, cholesterol, and sugar. When consumed in large quantities, they can spoil our health.
