Question

  • qué hiciste durante el festival (what you did during the festival)
  • qué diferencias hay entre los festivales en España y en Inglaterra (what differences there are between festivals in Spain and England)
  • tus planes para un festival el año que viene (your plans for a festival next year)

Escribe aproximadamente 90-120 palabras en español (Write approximately 90-120 words in Spanish).

There are three points to cover so it's important to cover them all equally. Remember to use a past tense to talk about what you did during the festival and a future tense to talk about your plans for a festival next year.

Example answer:

Lo pasé bomba durante el festival con mis amigos. Fuimos a una fiesta muy grande y vimos el desfile por la calle. Fue fascinante y me encantaron los disfraces. En mi opinión, los festivales en España son más tradicionales que los festivales ingleses y hay más fiestas en España que en Inglaterra. Creo que los festivales son importantes para la cultura y la historia de una región. Además, las costumbres son interesantes. El año que viene voy a ir a un festival de música con mi mejor amigo. Vamos a escuchar la música en vivo y será fantástico.

I had a great time during the festival with my friends. We went to a very big party and we saw the parade in the street. It was fascinating and I loved the fancy-dress costumes.

I think festivals are important for the culture and history of a region. What's more, customs are interesting. Next year, I am going to go to a music festival with my best friend.
