Young people’s free time should be active


Imagine that you are doing a project “Young people’s free time should be active” 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 activeness of young people while they have free time;
  • Express your opinion on the subject of the project – whether you would like to be more active 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 are teenagers who are playing volleyball on the beach. They are enjoying spending time together outside. In the second photo children are also spending time outside but in a different way. They do not look like a group they are separately using their mobiles and playing games or searching the Internet individually. I think that both of these photos properly illustrate the topic of our project. The first one shows the energetic way of spending free time, while the second one presents more passive type of after-class entertainments. 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 spending free time: active game of volleyball and passive searching the Internet. Secondly, the presence or absence of offline communication with the peers is a significant difference too.

I suppose in the project we have to mention the advantages and disadvantages of activeness during free time. It’s obvious that sport activities can help us to become stronger and healthier. Also active group work outside stimulate brain activity. I believe that people who engage in sports are more stable mentally and emotionally. They are more confident in making decisions and are more concentrated while doing other work. As for disadvantages of active free time I would like to mention a risk of being injured.

As for me I can’t imagine my life without active things like volleyball or football. I love spending time with my friends while we are playing something together. On the other hand it’s great sometimes to stay in and search the Internet too.

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