IELTS Task 1 Process - Model Answer

IELTS Writing Task 1: how to describe future years
Several people have asked me how to write about future years on a graph or chart. For example, what tense should you use if the graph shows the year 2025? Try this exercise: take a description of past years, and rewrite it with future years. Past: In 1999, the proportion of people using the Internet in the USA was about 20%. The figures for Canada and Mexico were lower, at about 10% and 5% respectively. In 2005, Internet usage in both the USA and Canada rose to around 70% of the population, while the figure for Mexico reached just over 25%. Future (I've changed the years and the verbs): In 2015, the proportion of people using the Internet in the USA is expected to be about 20%. The figures for Canada and Mexico are likely to be lower, at about 10% and 5% respectively. In 2025, it is predicted that Internet usage in both the USA and Canada will rise to around 70% of the population, while the figure for Mexico should reach just over 25%.

When would I get a lesson about IELTS Task 2 writing on engvid website. All your lessons are very interesting. Awaiting your new video on Academic essay writing before New Year. Do you teach any special formula in Task 2 like you did in task 1 ? Thank you Emma

There are three basic things you need to structure an IELTS writing task 1.
IELTS Writing Task 1: comparisons
You can use "compared to", "compared with" and "in comparison with" in the same way. For example: • • Prices in the UK are high compared to / with / in comparison with (prices in) Canada and Australia. Compared to / with / in comparison with (prices in) Canada and Australia, prices in the UK are high.IELTS Writing Task 1: to, by, with, at
Several people have asked me to explain how to use to, by, with and at when describing numbers. Here are some examples to give you a basic idea of the differences: 1) Use to when describing what happened to the number: In 2008, the rate of unemployment rose to 10%. 2) Use by when describing the amount of change between two numbers: In 2009, the rate of unemployment fell by 2% (from 10% to 8%). 3) Use with to give the idea of 'having' the number: Obama won the election with 52% of the vote. 4) Use at to add the number on the end of a sentence: Unemployment reached its highest level in 2008, at 10%.IELTS Writing Task 1: 'in' and 'by' with dates
Look at the following description: In 2002, the cost of an average house in the UK was around £130,000. By 2007, the average house price had risen to almost £190,000, but it fell back to just under £150,000 in 2008. Notice the verbs used with "in" and "by": • I used "in" with the past simple (was, fell).IELTS Writing Task 1: 'table' essay
(Here's my band 9 essay ) The table below gives information on consumer spending on different items in five different countries in 2002. The table shows percentages of consumer expenditure for three categories of products and services in five countries in 2002. It is clear that the largest proportion of consumer spending in each country went on food, drinks and tobacco. On the other hand, the leisure/education category has the lowest percentages in the table. Out of the five countries, consumer spending on food, drinks and tobacco was noticeably higher in Turkey, at 32.14%, and Ireland, at nearly 29%. The proportion of spending on leisure and education was also highest in Turkey, at 4.35%, while expenditure on clothing and footwear was significantly higher in Italy, at 9%, than in any of the other countries. It can be seen that Sweden had the lowest percentages of national consumer expenditure for food/drinks/tobacco and for clothing/footwear, at nearly 16% and just over 5% respectively. Spain had slightly higher figures for these categories, but the lowest figure for leisure/education, at only 1.98%. Note: - Which information did I choose to include in my 'summary' paragraph? - Why did I use past and present tenses in paragraph 2? - How did I group the information for paragraphs 3 and 4?
