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 running 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 group of people running. Each of them is dressed as a professional sportsman. They might be taking part in some competition. A marathon race, I suppose. In the picture number two we see a group of children, running through the field. By the photo it is well seen that the weather is warm, the sun is shining, so it must be summer time.
Both of the pictures are related to running and doing sport activities. In both of them there are some people who are running. But the reason why they run is different. People on the left are running because they want to win the race. Kids are running just for fun, I guess.
As for me, I always wanted to take part in a marathon’s race. I know that it’s very hard to run hours and hours, but I think that it trains your endurance a lot. And I truly believe, that even if you are not winning the competition, reaching the finish line is a victory too. There is a good proverb about it: it's not winning that matters but taking part.
