Travel broadens the mind


Imagine that you are doing a project “Travel broadens the mind” together with your friend. You have found some illustrations and want to share the news. Leave a voice message to your friend. In 2,5 minutes be ready to tell the friend about the photos:

  • Give a brief description of the photos, justifying the choice of the photos for the project
  • Say in what way the pictures are different, justifying the choice of the photos for the project
  • Mention the advantages and disadvantages (1-2) of two types of travelling;
  • Express your opinion on the subject of the project – whether you would like to travel more and why

You will speak not more than 3 minutes (12-15 sentences total). You have to talk continuously.



Hi, … I hope that you haven’t forgotten about the project we are going to do together. You know, I have found a couple of great pictures for it.

In the first picture there is a big group of tourists sightseeing in London. They might be listening to a guide or just walking towards Big Ben and many other London landmarks. In the second photo I can see only two people who are going hiking in the mountains. I think that both of these photos properly illustrate the topic of our project. They both show us different options when we choose a trip for ourselves. Sightseeing helps us to learn a lot about the history of a city, hiking might teach us better understand the world around us and build healthy relationships with our friends and family. Both pictures together provoke reflection and arguments about our topic.

These two pictures have a couple of differences. Firstly, they underline two different ways of travelling: to city’s most famous attractions and in the mountains. Secondly, the presence or absence of a big number of tourists in a group is a significant difference too.

I suppose in the project we have to mention the advantages and disadvantages of two types of travelling. It’s obvious that the first way of travelling is more active and entertaining as you travel with a group of your peers in a huge and exciting city. On the other hand, it’s always expensive to have tours like this one. As for the advantages of hiking and camping trips, they are cheaper, quieter and more relaxing.

As for me I can’t imagine my life without travelling. Of course, I would like to travel more to make new friends, practice English and become more intelligent.

I want to know what you think about my ideas as soon as possible so, please, call me back.
