Answer this Chocolate Questionnaire. When you’ve finished, check your score: are you a chocoholic?
Bad luck! When you were on holiday, some robbers got into your house. The criminals took some of your favourite expensive objects. Fortunately, you took a photo of your living room before travelling (Photo 1). When you got home, you took Photo 2. You can see the difference!
Now write the sentences for the Police Report. Use there was / there were and prepositions with suitable vocabulary (in New English File Student’s Book on page 151).

Write your description of this photo. You can invent some information about this person. To help you, here’s an example of a description for a similar type of photo.
This is John Albright. He’s twenty-eight years old and he’s from Wales. He works for a German car company in a big factory. In this photo he’s standing next to a car, and he’s putting a wheel on it.
He’s quite fat and he has short dark hair. He’s wearing jeans and a white T-shirt. In the photo he’s wearing special glasses, but he doesn’t normally wear them.
He doesn’t like his job, but he loves driving cars in his free time. He can also drive a bus, a tractor or a lorry, but he can’t ride a motorbike! He really likes watching Formula One racing on TV at weekends. He always watches Fernando Alonso, but he hates him. His favourite driver is Lewis Hamilton.
