Describe a dinner that you had with your friends cue card
In this case it specifically asks about the last time you had dinner with your friends – but in reality, there is no way the IELTS examiner will know if it was the last time or another occasion.
For example, if the last time you had dinner with your friends, it was uneventful – nothing happened – or it was a bit boring, however, 6 months ago you had dinner with some friends and it was a great evening and you can talk about that event much more easily, then use it.
Sometimes, the focus of the question is on the food; describing what you ate, what you liked about it or why you chose that place – and sometimes the focus is on the reason for the dinner (as in the example above) and what you talked about rather than the food or the actual restaurant.
If you’re stuck for ideas – then combine different events – talk about your favorite friends, your favorite restaurant, and favorite food together. That way it might be easier to describe things in more detail and make you talk more interesting – the IELTS examiner won’t know that you’re talking about individual things which never actually happened at the same time and in the same place – talk about whatever you feel most confident and comfortable about – it will improve your speaking performance.
So, now you know how to respond to the IELTS speaking test cue card about describe a dinner that you had with your friends.
