Ielts writing task 1 sample line graph

  1. 1. IELTS Writing Task 1 Sample
  2. 2. First things first! • What you need: o Introduce the graph in paragraph 1 using simple present o Report the numbers/percentages in paragraph 2 using the simple past o Sum up in paragraph 3 using the present perfect. Lets look at a sample! 
  3. 3. Graph and Prompt • The graph below shows the consumption of fish and different kinds of meat in a European country between 1979 and 2004.  Summarize the information by selecting and reporting the main features and make comparisons where relevant.
  4. 4. First Paragraph • First paragraph: We introduce the graph using simple present: E.g. The line graph records/shows (fish and meat consumption amounts in grams per person per week) over a 25-year period.
  5. 5. The Second Paragraph • Second paragraph: Report the numbers on the graph while comparing patterns of increase and decrease (if any) in the graph items using the simple past • Example: Next Slide
  6. 6. Second Paragraph Sample • The graph showed that chicken marked the highest meat consumption per person/per week with xxx (grams). We noticed that the consumption of chicken meat increased from about 150 grams to about/around 250 grams in the year 2004. In 1984, the consumption of beef peaked at 240 grams. Generally, there was a downward trend in the consumption of lamb from 150 grams in 1979 to approximately 60 grams in 2004. Another drop/dipping down pattern was noted in the consumption of fish. Starting out at about 60 grams in 1979, the numbers fell down to around 40 grams in 2004. Thus, fish showed/represented the least amounts of meat consumption.
  7. 7. The Final Paragraph • Final paragraph: We sum up using the present perfect • E.g. • To sum up, in the 25 years period, there has been an/a (sharp/slight) increase in the consumption of (?) and (?). On the other hand, the consumption of lamb and fish has/have not witnessed any significant changes. Finally, fish and lamb has/have reflected minimal consumption/amounts/perc entages as compared to beef and chicken.
  8. 8. Tips and Tricks! • Tip 1: Use the prompt: For paragraph 1, you can take the title from the prompt and fill it in in your paragraph: • Example: “The graph below shows the sales for the Coca Cola company between 1980 and 2000” o The graph shows (you can copy from the prompt) = o The graph shows (the sales for the Coca Cola company between 1980 and 2000)
