Living in a big city is a challenge


Imagine that you are doing a project “Living in a big city is a challenge” 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 living;
  • Express your opinion on the subject of the project – whether you would like to live in a big city in the future 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 busy city, it must be New York. We can see skyscrapers with a number of advertisements on the buildings and a traffic jam.  Also there are crowds of people everywhere. In the second one a picturesque village is quietly situated not far away from the mountains. We can’t see any people in the photo but we understand that they like living here very much. I think that both of these photos properly illustrate the topic of our project. The first one shows the problems people face if they live in a huge city while the second one underline the advantages we can get if we choose living in a smaller place. 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 living: in a huge city or in tiny village. Secondly, the presence or absence of crowds of people everywhere in the pictures is a significant difference too.

I suppose in the project we have to mention the disadvantages of living in a big city. It’s obvious that in the city you have to constantly deal with various types of people and for introverts it must be hard. Secondly, air pollution is becoming a big challenge nowadays. Living in a city means living between cars and their smoke. Also you have to waste a lot of time in traffic jams. The stunning and quiet view of a village in the second picture is presented as opposed to busy life in a city.

As for me I can’t imagine my life in a small town or a village in the future. I’m sure I need the activeness and entertainments which big cities offer.

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