IELTS Speaking Part 2

Describe something difficult you would like to succeed in doing

You should say:

  • What it is
  • Why it is difficult
  • How you would like to prepare for it
  • And explain why you would like to be successful in doing it

Sample Answer:

I’ve always wanted to lose weight. My current weight is 70 kg while I am only 155 cm tall. I am considered an obese person and I suffer from a lot of body shaming. I want to lose at least 20 kg but it’s never a piece of cake for me because I’m always hungry and I cannot have much time for exercising since my job requires me to sit in a place and work with a computer all day. I manage to wake up at the crack of dawn and spend 30 minutes running. Besides, I cut off the starch in my diet and choose low-carb food such as chicken breast and leafy green veggies.

I know that being overweight is bad for my health and if I am not determined to get a weight loss, I may get some more serious illnesses such as high blood pressure or heart attack in the future. I used to be a couch potato before, but now I spend most of my free time at the gym. I even spend a big amount of money hiring a private coach so that he will have more intensive advice for me in losing weight and keep an eye on my daily workout. I’m trying to cut off the sugar too but it’s quite hard for me because I love sweet food. This is really the hardest thing in my life and hopefully I can make it. If I lose weight successfully, I will inspire people to adopt a healthy lifestyle.

I always dream of the day when I have a fit body so that I can wear beautiful dresses and fashionable items that currently don’t fit me well.
