Задание 44 № 2950

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 where you'd like to read

• explain why


You will speak for not more than 2 minutes (12–15 sentences). You have to talk continuously.



In the picture number 1 we can see a man reading a book outside. Perhaps, he is sitting in the local park or nearby the forest. In the second picture we see a student reading a textbook in the library.

Clearly those pictures have some similarities. They both show us a man who is reading something. So both of them are related to reading.

But there are differences as well. In the picture on the left we can see an older man, on the right — a young man who is most likely a student learning in the library. The first one shows us a man surrounded by nature, it’s an informal place where you can rest. The second one represents a library, a place where you’re supposed to learn.

Personally I would prefer reading in the park. As for me it’s more convenient to read in the place without any noise at all. It helps me to concentrate on the subject and understand the material better.
