can i grow a sentence like this ?

It is apparent that Japan spent on apparel almost twice as much as USA. In another words, Japan spent 10 million on apparel, compared USA at 5 million.

It's ok Simran. Just remember to say "the" USA.

Hi Simon;

First of all there is not an appropriate way to thank you :) This site is helping a lot.

I was practising writing information in different ways. Would you mind checking this?

"The graps shows the proportion of the population used internet over a decade in three different close distance countries."

Hi Anieanie,

You can't say 'close distance countries'. Just put '3 different countries'.

I'm glad you like the site!

hi simon
you wrote "the percentage of people who USE internet increased"
could it be "the percentage of people who USED the internet increased"

Hi Sohaib,

Yes, both are fine in this case.

Hi Simon,
I wonder whether my sentence of overall trend correct!
"It is obvious that the percentage of Internet users increased highly during the given period with the lowest and fastest growth experienced by/belong to Mexico and Canada respectively:

Hi Simon
In your sentence "Mexico had the lowest percentage of Internet users, while Canada experienced the fastest growth in Internet usage."
Is that still work if put the change of number in one clause, and the change of trend in another clause? should it follow a balance meaning within sentence?
Thank you!

HI Simon,

Thank your the awesome job you do.

For the requested task I've written the introduction and the general description paragraph.

If you have the time, please take a look.

The graph shows the percentage of internet users from the total population of the three North American countries over the period of 1999 to 2009.

It goes without saying from the graph that the proportion of internet users increased substantially between 1990 and 2009. Overall, the percentage of Americans and Canadians was superior to Mexicans while Canada experienced the fastest growth in Internet usage.

Hello Simon,

I see that, it's been a year since you have posted your last comment but would mind checking these for me ?

" As it can be seen from the graph Mexico shows a lower increase in internet usage compared to the USA and Canada in this 10 years of period."

My questions are:
1.Can i express time period I want to tell, as it is ? ( in this 10 years of period..)

2. can I say sharp rise, when I'm addressing
what type of increase this is.

Thank you so much for doing such a favor for people all around the world..

Hello Simon,
How about this?

The line graph illustrates the trends in the proportion of people who use the internet in the USA, Canada, and Mexico between 1999 and 2009.

Overall, internet usage rose significantly in all the three countries, with the fastest growth was seen in Canada while Mexico showed the least over the decade.


Dear Simon, First of all there is not an appropriate way to thank you. This site is helping a lot. I hope to see more lessons on youtube.
This is my first comment. Please give your precious advice (if convenient) .
What kind of verb tense I have to use if the graph shwos prediction the future users,an example, ( By 2025, the percentage of Internet users ______ highest in Canada. Almost 100% of Canadians ______ the Internet, compared to about 80% of Americans and only 40% of Mexicans.)
I think that ( will be, will use ) are the correct answers , so I can not use only present or past simple.
Many thanks

Overall, is is obvious these 3 countries show a steady increase in the population who use the Internet during the period from 1999 to 2009. Mexico had the lowest proportion of Internet user. Then, the percentage of Canada's user surpassed USA's in the year of 2002.

[2nd edition]
The line graph shows the percentage of the Internet user among 3 different countries which are U.S.A., Canada and Mexico over a period of 10 years.
Overall, it is clear that the number of internet users increased for these 3 countries. Mexico had the lowest percentage of online user during this period.Besides, for U.S.A., it had the biggest percentage of online user at first. However, it was surpassed by Canada's counterpart soon.

I believe this is the most useful information while answering task 1

Hi Simon;

Firstly i want to thank you for all of your efforts about ielts studies.

My sentence is here:

The graph demonstrates proportion of the people who uses internet in three different countries over the period shown. Overall, all of the countries show a steady increase in the population who use the Internet during the period from 1999 to 2009.

hi, Simon!
what do u think about using the phrase "over the period in question" instead of "over the period shown"?

The line graph compares the percentage of people in three countries who used the Internet between 1999 and 2009.
It is clear from the graph that the proportion of people who used the Internet rose in each country over the period shown. Overall, a much larger percentage of Canadians and Americans had access to the Internet in comparison with Mexicans, and Canada experienced the fastest growth in Internet usage.
In 1999, the percentage of people using the Internet in the USA was about 20%. The figures for Canada and Mexico were lower, at about 10% and 5% respectively. In 2005, Internet usage in both the USA and Canada rose to around 70% of the population, while the figure for Mexico reached just over 25%.
By 2009, the proportion of Internet users was highest in Canada. Almost 100% of Canadians used the Internet, compared to around 80% of Americans and just 40% of Mexicans.

The line graph illustrate that the usage of internet in three different countries over a period of 10 years.
Overall, the internet users of these countries was increasing from year to year. In 1999, USA was the most common country who used the internet, almost 25% of people used the internet at that time.
The figures for Canada and Mexico, the usage of internet was lower than USA, that is about 5% and 10% respectively. In 2003, the proportion of people used the internet was same in USA and Canada. After that the percentage in USA was decreased gradually.
By 2009, the percentage of internet users was highest in Canada. Almost 100% people used the internet compared to about 80% of Americans and 40% of Mexicans.

It is noticeable that the percentage of population who use the Internet increased for all three countries. While Mexico had the lowest rate of Internet usage, experienced the lowest growth in Internet usage. By contrast, while Canada came in the second place at the beginning of the period reached the largest percentage of population in using Internet at the end.

Hi Simon,

Could I just write the introduction, 2 paragraphs and the conclusion ? (I mean could I not write the general summary?)

It is clear that the percentage of people who used the Internet showed an upward trend during the period in the three countries. Mexico had the lowest proportion of Internet use, and Canada experienced the largest growth in Internet usage.

Overall, the percentage of internet users increased in Canada, the USA, and Mexico respectively, over a period of six years. Mexico had the lowest percentage of people who used the Internet. in contrast, Canada came in the first for the largest number of people who used the internet during the period shown.

Another Description:
It is obvious that the period shown in the figure experienced increased number of people who used Internet in three different countries (Canada, The USA, Mexico). Overall, Canada had the largest percentage of people who used Internet. On the other hand, the lowest trend went to Mexico over the period shown.

Hope u correct my reports
thank you dear,
