After your partner has finished speaking, you will be asked a brief question connected with your partner’s photographs. Here are your photographs. they show different types of holidays.

  6. 6. SPEAKING, PART 2: COMPARING PHOTOS THERE ARE TWO WAYS YOU CAN DESCRIBE AND COMPARE PHOTOS: 1.Describe photo 1, speculate and answer the question. Then describe photo 2, speculate and answer the question. 2.Describe photos 1 and 2 comparing both, speculating on both pictures and answering the question about each photo in turns. DESCRIBE AND COMPARE PHOTOS IN THREE STEPS: -STEP 1: Describe and compare WHO arein the photos and WHERE they are in turns, giving a general view. You can speculate at this stage. -STEP 2: Give a more detailed description of each picture, focusing on CLOTHES, ROUGHT PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION OF THE PEOPLE AND PLACE (WHAT’S IN THE BACKGROUND/FOREGROUND/RIGHT, LEFT), or THE WEATHER. Explain WHAT they are doing (ACTIONS). Speculate. -STEP 3: Answer the question of the task.

Explain WHAT they are doing (ACTIONS) -STEP 3: Answer the question of the task. (1) The first photograph shows/ in the first photograph I can see a group of people in the desert, with a momunent –the Sphinx- , so they must be in Egypt, whereas the second photograph shows a woman in a swimming pool. (2) In the first pìcture, it looks like the people are tourist with a guide who is explaining the history of the pyramids, which stand in the background. In the second picture, the woman is relaxed in the swimmingpool, floating on a rubber ring and she is having a soft drink. She’s wearing a hat to protect herself from the sun. (3) Probably the people in picture 1 have chose this type of holiday because the are members of a group or club, and they have common interests. However, the woman in picture 2 has chosen this type of holiday because it is more relaxing, but probably more expensive than the package holiday of the first picture, more appropriate for people who can afford to stay in a luxury hotel and may not be interested in going sightseeing.
