Sample Answer 

I consider that one of the finest ways to learn about global traditions is to sample a variety of cuisines. I eat a lot, therefore I enjoy trying new foods and introducing my tongue to new flavors. In addition to engaging in sports like scuba diving and rafting on my most recent trip to Goa, I learned about the region’s rich culture and the history of Portuguese culture. One restaurant in Goa is well known for its delectable food and excellent service. Prior to my visit, I had already made up my mind about what I was going to do, so I was eager to give it a try. I decided to try eating fish since I had never done it before. A nutrient-rich diet like seafood has a number of health advantages. Vitamins and minerals are abundant in fish. Sadly, the dish did not taste as good as it initially appeared to. I was absolutely ignorant of the fact that they contained various ingredients. Those who are not habitual to this may find these substances to be extremely peculiar. I ended up throwing up in the washroom moreover I may not give it a second chance in the future.

Word Meaning Sentence
Delectable tasty My mother cooks delectable food.
Peculiar strange My uncle is a peculiar man who wears the same outfit for several days a week.
