What's going on?


Think about a specific place/event in this world and describe what's happening. Use Present Continuous mostly. The other students will have to guess the place/event.

Eg. "He is wearing a black tuxedo with a red carnation and a bow tie and is holding her hand. She's wearing a long, white gown and is smiling because she's very happy. Relatives and friends are throwing rice. Some people are going to make speeches and everyone is going to dance, have cocktails and dinner". - A wedding.

Many people are departing and many are arriving.Some people are staying at big queues waiting to leave a big part of their luggage,so they can relax and buy things for the loved ones,who are waiting for them at home.Some people are waiting to buy last moment tickets,if they have luck.Some people work for security because there are many dangerouse people,like terorist for example.Many people are passing security without any metalic objects,thru a gate which has an sensor for metalic or dangerouse objects.

  5. It’s a sunny day and up town it’s going wild, there are a lot of people dressed in the same colour and are going in the same direction. They are very enthusiastic and are singing songs of victory. The people are using big drums to make their’s presence felt. Who are they? They are the football fans before every game of their favorite team.

  7. He's wearing hunting clothes and is carrying a big bag. He is also carrying a chair and he's staying next to water with something in his hand. He is changing the bait from time to time. He is staying there even if it rains. He is going home with something to eat but not always.

  8. For getting in you must pay a ticket. Trees, green gras and fresh air is relaxing you. After a few steps, on your right a badger is stucked under a tree branch, seeing that I called a staff member to set him free. Going on with my visit I have notice a couple of monkeys kissing and hugging. The lion is just lying down and is ignoring me and the bear is eating the piece of cake I just gave. Guess where I am

  15. I will start with guessing: andreea24 wrote about a restaurant; precupioa.fb1 about a disco, club ; andreucia87 about hairdressing ; Belean Adriana about fishing ; Madalina about a zoo and Ilynagy about a restaurant.

    And here is my description:
    The sun is shining. Everyone is in swimsuit. The kids are running in the sand with life belts. Some are staying on towels, some are swimming in the water, others are under an umbrela enjoying a cold drink. Everywhere you are looking you are seeing smiles on the lips and happiness on the faces.

  20. Emoke,
    there's a problem you should pay attention to in your description, actually it's an exception: you always say: 'everywhere you are looking you see (!!!) smiles.
    Likewise, you say you feel (!!) the breeze, hear the sound of waves.
    Certain verbs are not used in the continuous form, or if they are used, they have a different meaning. Please ask me to talk about this in class.

  21. The company I am going to present is SUCHARD – MILKA. Its major activity is production of chocolate. Its headquarters are in Switzerland and it has 500 (five hundred) branches and 500.000 (five hundred thousand) employees. The annual turnover is 93 million EURO. There are 2 (two) products in range, such as: chocolate and wafer. These are sold all over the world. Its current projects include to satisfy as many customers as possible. The company strengths are the quality of the products. Possible threats to this company could be the fact that chocolate is not very healthy and people get fat if they eat it.
    I have chosen to speak about this company because I love chocolate, especially MILKA.

  23. Today my little daughter is very enthusiastic. I'm reading the happiness in her eyes.
    She's wearing a nice red dress with white roses, and is keepping a big bouquet in her tiny hands. Her best friend who is waiting in front of the door, keeps a big present. We are ready and we are leaving the house finally.

  25. The event what I am writing about is happening in a very nice Italian place in February each year.The streets are full of tourists,like St.Mark*s Square and the downtown-there is a ceremony and a parade of historical costumes(masks,pantomimes,musicians),in the evening there is music,dancers,this is the atmosphere that is waiting for everyone.Tourists are walking,are taking pictures,people with masks are presenting their costumes,are playing pantomimes,some people are singing.I recommend it also for lovers of the gondola;the vibrant atmosphere and gourmet pizza.I recommend it to everyone to participate at this ceremony.

  29. She is staying near her best friend, wearing a light blue dress covered by the black robe and having the black chop on her head. She is looking at her colleagues, dressed in the same way as she is and she is listening the dean’s speech. Her mother is staying with the other parents, having a big flower bouquet in her hand. She is smiling at her daughter and making a lot of pictures.

  30. People have tickets in their hands, waiting for the bouncer to take their tickets. People are excited and you can already hear the music. You're in, the band is warming up, there are some people that hold beer and different beverages. The band starts playing the first song, the crowd goes wild.
