Writing Task 1: A small theater in 2010 and 2012

Recent Actual Test 05/2022

The plans below show a small theater in 2010, and the same theater in 2012.

Write at least 150 words. You may spend 20 minutes to complete the task.

Sample Answer

The maps illustrate the layout of a small theater between 2010 and 2012 show significant changes during that time period.

It can be seen that the theater received renovation efforts in the two-year time frame, with the building itself expanded sideways as existing features were moved and reconfigured. The only part that did not undergo significant changes was the central seating area.

Regarding the southern part of the theater, in 2010, there was a cafe situated in the corner to the right of the theater’s main entrance, whereas the left corner was occupied by a ticket office and an administrative office. However, within the next two years, the ticket office was relocated to the bottom right corner where the cafe had been, while the administrative office was moved further back, to the left side of the seating area. This made way for a new restaurant area in the left rear corner.

In the upper section of the maps, one notable change was that the stage in front of the auditorium almost doubled in size with the addition of a side hall behind it, even as the auditorium itself remained unchanged. To the left of the stage was a storage room which, after 2010, was moved to the opposite end of the stage to make way for the construction of a showers area as well as the relocation of the dressing room. The old dressing room was located behind the stage in 2010, but this space, together with the right side of the stage, was redesigned to serve as a corridor which connected the dressing room and the storage room.
