IELTS Exam Prep: How to Describe a Graph, Diagram, Chart or Table

IELTS Exam Prep: How to Describe a Graph, Diagram, Chart or Table

In Task 1 of the IELTS Writing paper (1 hour), the examiner is looking for your ability to identify and describe – in academic style – the main features of some visual information: this may be a graph, table, chart or diagram of a device or process. You should give a well-organised response of at least 150 words and spend 20 minutes on this section of the exam (Task 2 is worth twice as much and should therefore take 40 minutes). Twenty minutes is not long at all, so you need to be as prepared as possible before you sit the exam.

Whether you’re preparing for your IELTS test or another English language exam, it’s very common to be asked to write an informal letter as part of your assessment. Although it’s questionable whether our students ever send paper letters in an envelope anymore (because who doesn’t love WhatsApp?), knowing how to write an informal letter correctly is still a basic requirement for passing your English test as a non-native speaker.

The essay for Task 2 of the IELTS writing exam is something that a lot of students are afraid of.

To write the perfect answer and get the highest IELTS band score possible, you need to write quickly but also keep calm and focussed on writing your answer.

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.
