Tips:

CELPIP Speaking Task 5 is called “Compare and Persuade”. Both of these are done at the same time.

You persuade your friends by comparing the options. The formula is simple: Opinion + Reasons

For example, “I think hiking up the mountain would be better because it will be a real adventure.”

Remember, you should definitely compare most of the information provided in the question, but you can also add your own details as well. For example, you could say, “The reason I brought my camera on this trip is because I want to get some good panorama shots. That’s why I want to hike up the mountain”


Vocabulary:

Get in gear (get in the mood for)
Breathtaking (amazing)
Panorama
Strenuous (difficult)


CELPIP Speaking Comparing Camping Options

Hey guys,

I know you want to relax all afternoon by the lake tomorrow, but one of the reasons we came on this trip is because we wanted an adventure. I think climbing the mountain would be a real adventure for us! I know it will be a strenuous hike, but we’re here for a few more days, so we can relax for the rest of our time here. Even though it would be fun to do some fishing tomorrow, I think it would be way cooler to see some bighorn sheep! I’ve always wanted to see those animals in the wild. I know swimming all afternoon in the lake would be fun, but wouldn’t you rather soak in the hot springs on our way back from the mountain?

Those hot springs are supposed to provide a lot of health benefits for the body! Seeing the view from the top of the mountain would be breathtaking. One of the reasons I brought my camera is so that I could get some good panorama shots! Anyway, I hope I can persuade you guys to get in gear for a real adventure tomorrow!
