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 of the disasters presented in the photos is more scary
• 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 flood and a lot of houses underwater. The water is very high and dirty. The whole street is covered by water and the houses are damaged badly. In the second picture I can see a tornado coming. We see only one small house. It is very old, perhaps the tornado happens somewhere in the countryside.
Both of the pictures are related with natural disasters. In both pictures we can see houses and they are damaged. The difference is that the photo number one shows the city (I can tell by the number of houses) while the second one shows a village. In the picture on the left the houses were new and modern while on the right we see an old and uninhabited.
As for me I think that a tornado is more scary than a flood because it’s harder to escape from it. In the flood starts you can run or swim away. It will destroy your house, but you’ll probably stay alive. The tornado leaves nothing after it.
