Hi guys,

CAE speaking part 2 photos

We will also look at parts 3 and 4 using topics found in this presentation:


Your class has been involved in a discussion on whether a dress code should be introduced at the college where you are studying. You have made the notes below.

Advantages of proposed dress code
• image of college.
• health and safety.
• discipline.
Some opinions expressed in the discussion:
‘Wearing more formal clothes will prepare students for the workplace.’
‘College isn’t work or school, so students should be free to wear what they want.’
‘Students are turning up to college in inappropriate clothes more frequently, so it’s time for a dress code.’

Write an essay for your tutor, discussing two of the advantages in your notes. You should explain which of the advantages you think would be most important for the college to consider in deciding whether to introduce a dress code, giving reasons to support your opinion.

You may, if you wish, make use of the opinions expressed during the discussion but you should use your own words as far as possible.

Write your essay in 220-260 words in an appropriate style.
