IELTS Academic Task 1: Question and sentence structure.

I’ve seen students struggling with connecting quantitive elements (numbers – years, production) and qualitative elements (you’ll know soon) in IELTS exam. Students fail to connect the two in correct English language. For instance, look at the following table:

The table shows the number of people in each earning group in Australia from 2008 to 2012. Summarise the information by selecting and reporting main features and make comparisons where relevant.

Most of the students fail to connect the Mathematical facts with express them in English language. One of my students (wrongly) wrote: “Earning between $ 50,000 and $ 150,000 people are dramatically increasing followed by a steady increase.”

Now, this is clearly NOT the best way to express facts. So, I’ve devised a methodology for writing effectively in task 1. Pictures. Plain and simple. So, here’s picture to help you write a more powerful line.

Okay, how do you make sense of this picture. All you have to do is follow the sequence. For instance:

The number of Australians earning $ 20,000 or less decreased sharply from 2008 to 2009 and thereafter it decreased gradually to 7.07 million in 2012.”

Please not the synonyms for various words. Please write sentences by following the above mentioned sentence structure.
