Use these photos to compare your town in the past and nowadays. If it is possible, ask your parents or grandparents about their life in the past. Talk about buildings, transport, streets, social life and fashion. For this essay, you may find useful the connectors to express contrast we have seen. 

Tips to write an essay:
  • brainstorming:  it involves noting down the ideas that pop into your mind about the topic you're going to write about. 
  • organising: looking at your brainstorm, select the ideas you want to include and delete the information you think unnecessary. 
  • write a draft: how is your essay going to be organized and complete it with more information about the topic. 
  • correct you text (grammar and spelling mistakes)
  • start your essay with and introduction and finish it with a short conclusion giving your opinion.
  • divide your essay into paragraphs, each with its own topic.
