Art has always crossed national boundaries and brought people together, whether they were professional artists or enjoyed some form of art as a hobby. In this lesson you will study some vocabulary related to motion pictures, listen to some interviews, and write an article comparing two huge cultural events that you can attend both as an artist and a visitor.
Two of the best known annual cultural festivals take place in Edinburgh, Scotland. They are the Edinburgh International Festival and the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. In this exercise your task is to find out some information about the two festivals and then compare them. Use these as your sources:
the home pages of the events
their pages on Facebook
their channels or videos at YouTube
Write an article where you compare the two festivals. You can include many kinds of information in your article but at least answer the questions listed below about both festivals. Keep in mind that you are writing an article and not just listing answers to the questions! Also, do not copy & paste anything as that is plagiarism but write your text in your own words.
Give your article a title. Remember to list all the websites you used as your source at the end of the article. Here are some questions to help you get going.
