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 picture is more attractive for you
• 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 two policemen. They are standing on a street and talking with each other. In the second picture there is a pretty big group of soldiers. They are equipped and standing in the row.
Both of the pictures show us people in uniform. All of them are equipped with guns. The difference between policemen and soldiers is obvious and doesn’t have to be explained. Soldiers a usually serving somewhere far from the city. Meanwhile the policemen are staying in the cities to mantain the order.
As for me, I’ve never thought about going to the army neither becoming a policeman. If I would have to choose I’d rather be a policeman, because I’m a pacifist, which means I’m against the war. I can’t even imagine how hard (in emotional way) is to shoot people, even if they are enemies. Being policeman is more attractive for me, because they have to maintain order, which is not a bad thing. If I were a policeman I would help people, they would rely on me and trust me.
