After your introduction (see last week's lesson), you should write a general summary of the information in the graph, chart etc.
For graphs that show time periods (years, months etc.):
- Look for the overall trend from left to right on the graph. Is there a change from the first year to the last year?
- Do the lines on the graph follow a similar trend, or can you see any differences?
In the paragraph below, I describe the overall trend for all 3 countries. Then I point out a clear difference in the trends for 2 countries.
Summary of trends:
It is clear from the graph that the proportion of people who use the Internet increased in each country over the period shown. Overall, Mexico had the lowest percentage of Internet users, while Canada experienced the fastest growth in Internet usage.
