IELTS Writing Task 1 common mistakes

IELTS Writing Task 1 common mistakes

IELTS writing task 1 is the question in which you are given information in the form of a table, pie chart, line or bar graph and sometimes a picture of a process.

You should write about 150 words for this part of the test.

You only have 60 minutes to write your answers for TWO questions in this part of the IELTS exam. Writing Task 2 is longer (250 word answer) and there are more points for it.

So, think of writing task 1 as the "short answer", which must be completed quickly.
