IELTS Academic Writing Task 1
In the academic writing task 1, you will be given 2 graphs and you will have to compare the two graphs by making comparison and stating the main points.
The Writing Task 1 of the IELTS Academic test requires you to write a summary of at least 150 words in response to a particular graph (bar, line or pie graph), table, chart, or process (how something works, how something is done). This task tests your ability to select and report the main features, to describe and compare data, identify significance and trends in factual information, or describe a process.
The chart below gives information about Someland’s main exports in 2005, 2015, and future projections for 2025.Summarise the information by selecting and reporting the main features, and make comparisons where relevant.
This bar chart illustrates the performance of Someland’s primary exports in 2005 and 2015. It also indicates future projections for 2025. According to the data, it seems likely that international tourism will become the dominant industry, although dairy exports will remain strong. In 2005, we can see that tourism was the greatest exports earner of the three industries, with revenue standing at just over $6 billion.
This figure has increased slightly, so that now, in 2015, it has reached almost $7 billion. It is estimated that international tourism will continue to grow, so that by 2025, it will be earning around $8 billion for the country. In 2000, dairy exports were worth around $5 billion, but since then there has been a dramatic increase, and sales for this year are approximately $8 billion. Experts are predicting that exports in this area may fall slightly, so a figure of $7.5 billion is expected for 2025. Meat products are the third key industry in Someland, but sales have dropped since 2000 and now stand at $3.5 billion. It is expected that sales will continue to decrease in the future.

First of all, the process begins with the collection of raw peanuts from the crops, and then the hard layer of them is removed in the second step, before packing them in the large boxes weighing 50 kilograms each.
