Describing an image using Voxopop or Vocaroo

Please visit our Voxopop Talkgroup at or go to and do the following task:
Look at the image below and describe what you see in the target language. You may want to write down a few ideas. However, you should speak freely and not read your notes. Speak loud and clear.

  • Give the image a title. Explain your title!
