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 which team presented in the photo you like more
• 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 male hockey team. The game is in high gear. The goalkeeper is protecting his gates. The enemy team’s forwards are very close. In the picture number two, we see another hockey team. It is a female American hockey team. They are standing on the ice and waiting the game to begin.
Both of the pictures show us hockey teams. In both photos there are players on the ice. The difference that immediately stroke into my eyes is that they are of different genders.
There is a widespread opinion that hockey is a men’s sport and women don’t have to play it. As for me, I can say that I’m against this opinion. I’m not a feminist but I think that in sport women should have the same right. I’d like to be a part of women’s hockey team.
