1-The graph shows the number of people who travelled to and from UK.
2-In 1979, the number of people who visited the UK was 10 million.
3-Turkey was the least country in terms of number of visitors.

1. The graph shows the number of people TRAVELLING to and from the UK.
- I used travelling instead of traveled since we are talking about the graph which is a current trend and continuously monitored over time.

2. In 1979, the number of people who visited the UK was 10 million.
- put the article THE before the UK since it is a country with multiple areas/countries that are a part of it. It's an exception to the rule just like other countries such as The United States, The Philippines, The Netherlands, etc.
- should be 10 million not 10 millions since you have already specified a number.

3. Turkey IS the least popular country in terms of TOURISM.
- I put IS instead of WAS since tourism is an ongoing trend.
- I used the word TOURISM to make it sound better and simpler, if that makes sense.

Hi Simon,

Here are my answers:

1-The graph shows the numbers of people who travelled to and from UK.

2-In 1979,the numbers of people who visited UK was 10 millions. or we can say

the numbers of UK visitors was 10 millions.

3-Turkey was the least popular country in terms of numbers of people visiting it.

1. The graph shows the number of people WHO travelled to and from THE UK.

2. In 1979, the number of people who visited THE UK was 10 million.

We should use definite article THE before UK.

MILLION is correct, NOT MILLIONS

3. Turkey was the country with the lowest number of people visiting the UK.

I think past tense is better to use because the graph talks about a specific time in the past not present.

3. Turkey was the least popular country regarding the number of people visiting it.

1.The graph shows the number of people who travelled to and from UK .
2.In 1979, the number of people who visited UK was 10 million.

CORRECT ANSWERS FROM SIMON:

1. WHO travelled (or TRAVELLING)... THE UK

2. WHO visited THE UK... 10 MILLION
(no "s" on hundred, thousand, million etc. after a number)

3. You can't say "the least country" - change it to "least popular country".

3 Turkey was the least country in terms of people visited it.
