Zadanie 2 - Praca (przykładowa odpowiedź)

OUP Photocopiable

Czas: 4 minuty
[Po upływie ok. 10 sekund, egzaminator niestety wbija się z pytaniem: Can you start now?]

Teraz zdający ma 1 minutę na to, by w miarę sprawnie i jak najlepiej jakościowo opisać obrazek mówiąc kto jest na obrazku, co robi oraz gdzie się znajduje. To jest minimum, ale nawet to minimum można zrobić 'na poziomie', tj. trzeba pamiętać, by każdy z tych elementów jak najlepiej rozwinąć... idealnie uzywając ciekawego (tzn. mam na myśli 'zaawansowanego') słownictwa i róznorodnych struktur gramatycznych... :) No to jedziemy...


(Kto?)
In the picture there are four people. There are three men and a woman. However, two men and the woman are in one interviewing team (zespół prowadzący wywiad) while the man on the opposite side of the table is an interviewee (osoba, z którą przeprowadza się rozmowę). Let's focus (skupmy sie na) on the interviewing team. The woman and her colleague on the left are in their thirties whereas the man on her right is in his fifties. The candidate is probably in his twenties. I can't see his face as the picture was taken from behind him.All these people are wearing professional clothes, that is suits and ties (garnitury i krawaty) ... Well the woman doesn't have a tie.. She's wearing a white blouse instead.

(Gdzie?)
Well, I guess it's one of that company's rooms where such job interviews are held (są organizowane). The room itself (Pokój sam w sobie) isn't very spacious (przestronny) although the table looks quite big. The room can be described as rather humble (skromny) with its plain (zwykłe, proste) walls and a flip-chart (flipczart, tablica demonstracyjna) standing in the corner in the back of the picture. The room makes a positive impression (sprawia pozytywne wrażenie) as the wall colors are pastel (pastelowe) and agreeable (przyjemne)

(Co się dzieje?)
As I have already mentioned (Jak już wspomniałem), this looks like an interview. All the people are sitting at a white table. The three people sitting on the left are cross-questioning (biorą w ogień krzyżowych pytań) the man on the opposite site of the table. The interviewee is probably trying to make a good impression (robić dobre wrażenie) by trying to intelligently and originally respond (reagować) to these questions. He may even be successful as the interviewers seem to be interested in what the young man is saying. I can tell so because I can notice delicate smiles on the interviewers' faces. At the moment, the woman is either asking her question or is reacting (reaguje) to what the young man said. I guess the man on the woman's left has just finished making some notes (robić jakieś notatki) while the other man seems to be busy reading some document, maybe the candidate's CV...  


Potem zdający ma 3 minuty by odpowiedzieć na trzy pytania egzaminatora (Ty tych pytań oczywiście nie widzisz!). Pytanie pierwsze dotyczy bezpośrednio ilustracji, drugie zwykle odbiega nieco od ilustracji, a trzecie jest jedynie pośrednio związane z ilustracją i dotyczy osobistych doświadczeń zdającego.

W tym zestawie egzaminator zadaje następujące pytania:
  1. Do you think the interview is going well? What makes you think so? (This question has already been answered, so the examiner will not ask it. That's why it's always better to say a bit more...)
  2. What would you wear to a job interview? (I guess that I wouldn't be very original as far as my appearance is concerned. Most people wear rather formal and elegant clothes to show that such a meeting is of high importance to them. I think clothes can express that well. Moreover, your clothes are what your interviewers see first so it's kind of important not to waste these first few seconds and make sure that your clothes work to your advantage.)
  3. Describe a situation when you or someone you know had to wear formal clothes. (Yes, I don't have to think much about the answer to this question as I am wearing formal clothes now. We're in a period of time when secondary school students are taking their final written and oral exams. Thus we wear formal clothes because these exams are a very important milestone in our lives.)

Po wszystkim egzaminator mówi:
Thank you.
Let's move on to Task 3.

[Jeżeli zdający rezygnuje z wykonania zadania: Thank you. This is the end of the exam.]

Masz sugestie, komentarze, uwagi? Swoją wersję tego obrazka? A może jakieś pytania? Wal śmiało w postach. Odpowiadam na wszystkie posty! :)

  1. Ile moża otrzymać punktów max za to zadanie i ile takie coś by dostało punktów.

    In the picture i can see 4 people. Three of them are probably examinators and the fourth person is a candidate. The average age of the interviewing team is about fourty. They all wear formal clothes. The only woman in the picture is wearing a blouse with a ruffle, and men are wearing ties.
    I think the candidate is sitting an CAE exam, and he is having a speaking part, so it might be one of the rooms where speaking parts are taken. I can't see what's exactly there in the background, but I think there is a lamp and a kind of chest of drawes.
    As I have already mentioned it looks like a CAE exam. The man who is taking the exam is smiling, but examinators aren't. They look seriously. In my opinion he is in the fouth part of the speaking exam, where you have to talk about your live and thing etc. I think he is doing good beacouse the men who write something on their papers are looking as if they were full of hope

    1. Crown, thanks for your post. Your text is quite good I must say. Let's take a look at it... In the picture ***I*** can see 4 people. Three of them are probably ***examiners*** and the fourth person is a candidate. The average age of the interviewing team is about ***forty***. They ***are all wearing*** formal clothes. The only woman in the picture is wearing a blouse with a ruffle, and ***the*** men are wearing ties.
      I think the candidate is sitting ***a*** CAE exam, and he is having ***the*** speaking part, so it might be one of the rooms where speaking parts are taken. I can't see what's exactly there in the background, but I think there is a lamp and a kind of chest of drawes.

      So as you see there are a few mistakes, but since this is just an oral exam and nobody looks at your spelling, I guess you would have quite a good score for this output.

      Looking forward to more posts of yours!
