Click here for the full-screen version

This activity allows students studying for the Preliminary English Test (PET) to practice the “describe the photo section” (Part 3) of the speaking exam. This application works on mobiles, iPads and on digital whiteboards.

There are 26 photos in total in this version of the activity and offers plenty of practice for students preparing for the Cambridge PET exam.

Use the “tips” and “phrases” section to allow students to practice key skills required in the exam before they begin the practice session.

The timer allows the teacher and student to complete the task in the required time. Press “set” to set one minute on the timer and then press “start” when the student is ready to begin.
