Study the two photographs. In 1.5 minutes be ready to compare and contrast the photographs:
• give a brief description of the photos (action, location)
• say what the pictures have in common
• say in what way the pictures are different
• say what kind of reading presented in the photos you'd prefer
• explain why
You will speak for not more than 2 minutes (12–15 sentences). You have to talk continuously.
In the photo number one we can see a young woman, reading a magazine. She is wearing a pink t-shirt, so she is dressed like it is summer time. She is sitting in a train, travelling somewhere, probably, far. In the second picture we see a guy reading a book aloud. He is holding a book in his right hand and looking to the audience. He probably knows some parts of the book by heart. There is a microphone standing in front of him and there is a screen showing a video or a picture of a train.
Both of the pictures are related to reading. In both of them there are some people who read and also some parts of the train, from the inside and outside. Both of the characters are wearing t-shirts. The difference that I notice between those two photographs is: firstly, on the left we see a person sitting in a real train, while on the right the train is shown on a screen. Secondly, a man on the right is reading a book aloud and for the public, while a girl is reading her magazine for herself.
As for me, I’d prefer being that girl, because I like to travel by train and reading. And I have never been reading in front of the audience and I think that I’m too shy for doing that.
