Speaking Page 98

Exercise 1

Part 1 is a three-way conversation between the candidates and the interlocutor using general interactional and social language. It largely involves conveying personal information.
Part 2 each candidate speaks for about a minute about a set of photographs. When they have finished speaking, the other candidate responds to a question briefly.
In Part 3 the two candidates speak to each other. They try to solve a problem of some kind using the visual prompts the interlocutor gives them.
In Part 4 the interlocutor asks the candidates questions related to the theme of Part 3.
In Part 2 the interlocutor usually asks each candidate to compare and contrast the photographs and to comment on them from a particular perspective. Sometimes the second candidate is asked which photographs the first candidate talked about. Sometimes the second candidate is asked to comment on the photographs from another perspective.

Exercise 3

Sentence 2 would be the most appropriate of the three, because it describes what the man is doing and then relates that to the second photograph.
Sentence 1 only focuses on the man’s physical appearance, and Sentence 3 only provides a description of the landscape.

Writing: competition Page 100

Exercise 3

The answer includes plenty of varied and interesting vocabulary. Examples:
Para 1: watching avidly
Para 2: glued to the set … absolutely exhausted … pleaded in exasperation
Para 3: pouring with rain… splashed through the puddles … an enormous box of popcorn… stumbled through the darkness… gratefully discovered…
Para 4: hallucinating … the hairs on the back of my neck stood up… sitting right behind me … it dawned on me…

The writing is organised as follows:
Para 1: background information/ setting the scene
Para 2: Specific background to the main event in the story
Paa 3: The complicating action
Para 4: The climax and resolution

The linking words/ phrases used are:
As it happens… After it had finished … Nevertheless, … Finally … After a few minutes though … At first … and then…

The entry is clever and amusing. It would have a good chance of winning the competition. It is written in a relatively informal style, which is entirely appropriate.
