Band 9.0 Sample Answer Ideas.
One competition that I would really like to take part in is a cooking competition. I absolutely love cooking and trying out new recipes, and I think it would be really exciting to be able to showcase my skills and creativity in a competitive setting.
In this competition, I would be required to prepare a series of dishes within a certain time frame, using a range of ingredients and cooking techniques. The judges would then evaluate the dishes based on factors such as taste, presentation, and creativity.
There are a few reasons why this competition interests me. First and foremost, I love the idea of being able to showcase my cooking skills and see how I measure up against other participants. I also think it would be a great opportunity to learn from other talented chefs and pick up some new ideas and techniques. Additionally, I think it would be a really fun and exciting experience, and a great way to push myself out of my comfort zone.

IELTS Speaking part 3 Follow Up Questions.
Here are some follow up questions you may be asked during part 3 IELTS Speaking exam by the IELTS examiner related to 1st cue card:
“Describe a competition you would like to take part in IELTS Game”
1. What kinds of people are competitive?
I think in their hearts, all people like to compete and see where they stand among others.
But, some people are confident and want to compete more often. Some people are not so sure, but are pushed into competitions by their parents or teachers.
The fear of losing takes away the competition spirit from many. Many people realise their potential only after competing.
2. What kind of activities/competitions people like to take part in?
People like to compete in singing, dancing, painting, sports, quizzes and many more types of competitions.
It really depends upon people’s interest. For example, people who are into physical fitness like to try for marathons, weight lifting or other sports competitions.
3. What kinds of competitions are popular in your hometown?
Many competitions are popular in my hometown. There is annual environmental festival and during these two days there are competitions on various activities like weight lifting, dance, painting, drawing, science presentation, essay writing competition, debates and so on.
Then dog shows and competitions are also very common in my hometown.
4. Why do you think there are many competition programs on TV today?
Firstly, people like to watch competition programs and most of these shows have very high TRP ratings.
Secondly, these shows are cheaper to produce and more profitable as producers make
money from text messaging and calling besides advertisements.
They don’t need much planning or scripts like other shows and they have greater chances of success as well.
