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 time spending 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 small group of people playing cards. They are having a good time, smiling and talking. They are sitting on the couches in a living room. They have the orange juice on the table. In the second picture I can see a crowd of people playing tug of war. They are having fun as well. Maybe they have some sort of holiday or a competition.
Both of the pictures show us two different ways of spending free time. In both of them there people who are having fun. Those who are on the left are having a passive time spending indoors. Those who are on the right prefer to have fun more actively.
As for me, I can’t tell which way of time spending I’d prefer. Sometimes I like to spend my holidays actively, doing some sport activities. Sometimes during the week I get that tired that I just want to take a rest. Usually my family and I spend our weekends passively, like it is shown in the picture number one. Is it good thing or not, I don’t know.
