IELTS SPEAKING PART 2: Describe an article on health you read on magazine or the internet

Describe an article on health you read on magazine or the internet.

You should say:

  • What it was 
  • Where you read
  • Why you read 
  • And how you felt about it


Well, an article about health that I read on the internet talked about the “health benefits of cycling.” A couple of years ago, I attempted to live a healthier lifestyle and keep in good shape. This meant improving my diet, exercising more frequently, and trying to make healthier choices in my daily life. However, I was not an expert in this field, so I read an article on the “Healthline” website.

I clearly remember that it pointed out many benefits of cycling for people’s health. The first thing I learned from the article was that regular bicycle riding can help to improve cardiovascular fitness because it increases the presence of good cholesterol in the body and lowers blood pressure. So, the more I cycle, the healthier my heart tends to be. Also, the article suggested that regular cycling is a great way to reduce stress levels. On top of that, unlike running, which is a high-impact form of exercise, cycling is incredibly gentle on people’s joints. So, it’s is a very safe way for them to remain healthy and physically active without aggravating their painful arthritic joints.

In the past, I used to have a sedentary lifestyle. But after I read this article on the website, I acquired a taste for cycling and decided to change my habits.  I have to admit that this article is highly informative and it’s well worth reading.
