For those who have little idea how to attempt academic task 1 in IELTS exam, I’ve developed a strategy. As you guys already know, I never give answers. I believe in motivating students to write their own answers using hints given in my blog posts. So, here’s a unique way to learn more about writing academic task 1. Look at the line graph given below and answer the questions.

Summarise the information by selecting and reporting the main features, and make comparisons where relevant.


Instructions: please fill answers using hints given in parenthesis. You can use adverbs and adjectives such as gradually. Where more than one options are given in brackets, they’re meant to use different words at different places (vocabulary angle in IELTS).
