Przykładowy opis ilustracji
In the picture I can see a lesson, somewhere in China or Korea. There are a lot of children sitting at their desks and a teacher is explaining something on the board. She looks very serious. I think it looks like science lesson, because there is some diagram on the blackboard, although it can not be seen clearly. The children are quite young, probably about eight years old. They are listening to the teacher and writing things down in their notebooks. Although they are small children, they are not talking with each other or playing, but silently listening to their teacher. There are a lot of objects on the desks: books, rulers, rubbers, pens and pencils. In the class there is also a board with some information and probably pages from a school magazine.

Przykładowe odpowiedzi na pytania egzaminatora
I think children do not really look interested. They are listening to the teacher because they have to, but the topic is probably not very interesting and the children look bored. The lesson might also be difficult. For small children understanding diagrams may be a problem. They would rather see the things that the teacher is talking about in practice, not only see them , but also touch them. The lesson is abstract and they are not actively engaged.
I think the lesson must be interesting because children are sitting peacefully and listening to the teacher. If they were bored, they would definitely be naughty. Probably they are very ambitious and they want to understand everything the teacher is saying.
When I was a child I really liked going to school. I loved meeting my friends and playing with them during the breaks. I liked lessons because I enjoyed learning new things. I loved my teachers because they were helpful and friendly. We had a lot of interesting extra-curricular activities: sports, drama classes and choir.
When I was a child I hated going to school. Sitting at my desk for a long time was a nightmare. I was always afraid of getting a bad mark, because then my parents were very unhappy. I was very bad at maths and our teacher was so strict! She would always shout when I didn’t know how to do an exercise. Some lessons were really very boring. I remember I just wanted to go outside and I used to look through the window all the time…
