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 transport presented in the photos you 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 bus on the street. We can also see its route written on it. I suppose it’s a Greek bus because this language looks like Greek. In the picture number two we see another type of transport – a train. It is standing on the station. There are some people on the station too. It can be also another type of public transport — a metro.
Both of the pictures show us different kinds of transport. The main difference is between the transport itself. Buses work on fuel or gas, while trains need only electricity.
As for me, I can say that I prefer trains, because firstly it’s more ecological type of transport. Secondly because trains are usually much more comfortable transport to travel on a long distance. If I had a choice between traveling by bus or by train I’d definitely choose a train. Moreover in buses I get sick.
