Female teenager Well, both these pictures show people in successful situations. In Picture a, the audience is clapping the rock group, so their performance has probably been a success. The performers look happy. Picture b is a picture of someone getting a degree or diploma or something, so they must have done well in their exams. I suppose the main difference between the pictures is that the second one is an example of academic success, whereas the first picture shows success in a performance. Another difference is that, in picture a, a group of people have been successful together. In picture b, the person has been successful on their own.
In pairs, compare and contrast the two pictures in Exercise A. Use your notes to help you.
