As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, the more you listen to natural English, the more you will improve your spoken English. In today’s post, I’m going to share a video explaining the difference between healthy food and processed/fast food. Food and health is a common topic in the IELTS Speaking test.
Whole foods vs. processed foods
As you watch the video below, try to pay attention to ‘less common’ vocabulary — using some ‘uncommon words’ will help you get a higher band according to the IELTS marking criteria. For example, the speaker says Processed foods usually have a really lengthy ingredient list (0:48). Lengthy is a less common synonym of long.
Don’t worry if you don’t understand every sentence. You also can display English subtitles by clicking the YouTube caption button at the bottom of the video. However, these are machine-generated subtitles and they are not 100% accurate.
