Band 9.0 Sample Answer Ideas.

One plant, vegetable, or crop that I am familiar with is the potato. Potatoes are a tuberous crop that grow underground and are native to the Andean region of South America. They are now grown in many countries around the world, including in parts of Europe, Asia, and North and South America.

I became familiar with potatoes through my training data, which included information about their cultivation, uses, and nutritional value. Potatoes are a staple food in many cultures and are used in a variety of dishes, including mashed potatoes, French fries, and potato chips. They are also a good source of nutrients, including potassium, fiber, and vitamin C.

One thing I like about potatoes is their versatility. They can be cooked and prepared in many different ways, and they can be used as a main ingredient in dishes or as a side dish. I also appreciate the nutritional value of potatoes and their potential to help improve food security in some regions.

Potatoes are important for many countries because they are a major food crop and a significant source of income for farmers. They are also relatively easy to grow and can thrive in a variety of climates and soil types, making them an important food source in many parts of the world.

“Describe a plant, vegetable or crop that you are familiar with IELTS Game”

1. Do people in your country like to grow plants at home?

Yes, they do. Home gardening is a fast growing hobby among the urban people who have even the slightest space for plants. People are also doing terrace gardening. Even I have a kitchen garden.

I don’t have much open space, but I have grown coriander, mint, green chillies, okra and aubergine in pots.

I also have a lemon tree and we enjoy fresh lemons throughout the year.

2. Do old people grow plants?

Yes, they love to. They have the knowledge also. My grandfather keeps guiding me about the water requirements of plants. 

He also keeps changing the position of our pots. He knows which plants need shade and which need sunshine.

3. How do schools teach students to grow plants?

Unfortunately, schools do not teach these things. At least in the schools I know of. Some schools may be doing so, by organising some activities related to the environment.

4. What is the main plant of your country?

India is a diverse country and enjoys tropical climate. All sorts of plants grow here. 

There is no plant, which I can call as the main plant. Basil is worshipped in hindu homes, ginger and turmeric have medicinal values, aloe vera has also become very popular.

Growing plants:

How were plants grown in the past?
Do you know some of the more advanced ways to grow plants?
Are there some drawbacks to grow plants using modern technology?

Farming in society:

Is farming a popular career choice in China?
Why don’t young people today like to be in the farming business?
How do you think technology will change farming in the future?
