In IELTS Academic Writing Task 1, the question asks you to describe the information in a graph, table, chart, or diagram. The information in the task could be the following types:
- stages of a process
- how something works
- an object or an event
Here is a useful and fun learning game to try a few times with a study partner or friend to get ready to answer Academic Writing Task
- Collect lots of different examples of graphs, tables, charts, and diagrams. Try looking in past question papers, business or academic magazines and websites.
- Choose one from your collection and write a 150 word report on it, summarising all the main features.
- Ask a friend or IELTS study partner to read your report, give them all of the different charts and diagrams you have. If they can choose the correct diagram/graph/table from your collection by your description of it in the report, then you have described it accurately and well!
- Repeat this exercise a few times with different graphs, diagrams and tables.
