IELTS Speaking Part 2: what is the 'real' topic?

 Have another look at the part 2 task below.

Describe a photograph of you that you like. You should say

- where the photo was taken
- what you were doing when it was taken
- who took it
- and explain why you like the photo.

Now think about this:
What is the real topic of this task? Is it photography or photographs?

The answer is no. I think you'll probably talk about a holiday, a special event, or perhaps an activity or a hobby. One of these topics will be your real topic.

Tip: Don't let the word "photograph" dominate your thinking. If you do that, you'll start to worry that you don't know enough "photography" vocabulary. Instead, focus on the holiday, event or activity.
