CELPIP Speaking Comparing College Study Options

Sample Answer

Hey Pamela,

I know you’re considering your options about what to study in college. I really think you should go for hairdressing. I think that’s much more in line with your personality. I remember when you were a kid, you would play with barbie dolls and spend hours combing and braiding their hair. So, I think you would enjoy hairdressing even more than photography.

The nice thing about hairdressing is that you would make ten grand more a year. That would really help you out in the long run! Even though the tuition cost is double, you would easily make that back in a year, so I don’t think that’s a very important factor. Another thing to consider is that photography equipment is really expensive. If you bought your own gear right after graduation, that would probably set you back at least ten grand anyway! Even though the photography program is three months shorter, that’s a minor factor when you consider the rest of your life! The most important thing is to find something you love to do.

I think if you studied hairdressing, you would easily get a job afterwards and have a rewarding career!
