Przykładowy opis ilustracji

Opisz powyższą ilustrację i odpowiedz na pytania egzaminującego.

In the picture I can see a typical scene on the beach, probably somewhere in the Mediterranean. The weather is beautiful: it is hot and sunny. The sky is blue and the water in the sea is clear and turquoise. Some people are swimming and playing in the water – it must be a pleasure because the water is very clean and probably warm. It is not very deep in the sea so even small children can enjoy it. Some people are walking on the shore, with their feet in water. A lot of people are lying on their towels and sunbathing; they might be reading books and talking. The atmosphere is very lazy. In the background we can see a green mountain. Probably it would be possible to walk there, but I think nobody fancies such trips when it is so nice on the beach.

Przykładowe odpowiedzi na pytania egzaminatora

I think that generally when you are on a beach holiday, the day can be divided into two parts. In the morning you go to the beach and you enjoy all the activities that are typically associated with the beach. You can not only swim and sunbathe, but also practice snorkeling or diving, go surfing or windsurfing, or, if you want something more peaceful, you can collect shells or build sand castles. The second part of the day is usually devoted to other forms of entertainment. In the evening and at night people usually eat out in restaurants with local food, go dancing to night clubs and shop for souvenirs. Many little shops are usually open till very late hours.
To be frank, I don’t like beach holiday, because I think it is really boring to lie in the sun all day long. I also dislike the fact that in popular beach holiday destinations there is usually nothing to see – they are just villages with no ancient monuments or galleries. I love touring holiday, because you can see a lot of interesting places and you never get bored. You go by coach and it is comfortable – you can sleep or look through the window. Coaches are air-conditioned nowadays, so you don’t feel hot all the time. You have a professional guide who tells you about the things that you pass on the way. All the sightseeing is well organized so your time is not wasted – you would never see so many things in such a short time if you organized everything on your own! I simply love sightseeing, going to galleries and museums, visiting churches and cathedrals – I could spend a month in this way. Unfortunately – touring holidays are usually much shorter!!!
