Hi Simon

here is my answer for task 1 with the help of your points.


The table compares the waste output in Japan, Ireland, Korea, Poland, Portugal and US in 1980, 1990 and 2000. Overall, waste materials produced over the 20 years period rose in every nation apart from Korea, where it was declined. The most noticeable feature is that US produced by far the most waste in all three years.
US, Japan and Korea produced more waste with US has the highest figures among all countries. Us waste material was 131 millions tonnes in 1980 that further increased and reached at 192 millions tonnes after 20 years in 2000, where as waste output by Japan and Korea was 53 and 19 millions tonnes in 2000 respectively.
Waste production in Ireland, Poland and Portugal also rose over the 20 years time however, there figures were negligible compared to other three nations. Ireland produced only 0.6 millions tonnes in 1980 which increased to 5 millions tonnes in 2000. While figure for Poland were 4 millions tonnes in 1980 that gradually increased to 6.6 millions tonnes in 2000, where as Portugal waste production was more than double (5millions tonnes) in 2000 compared to in 1980(2 millions tonnes).

hi simon and readers. here is my answer.

the table gives details about the waste that was produced in billion of tonnes by ireland,japan,korea,poland,portugal and US in over two decades.

Overall,North america produced more waste output than other countries. general trend for all continets rose apart from korea.

It is clear that. US,Korea,japan comprised highest rate waste production with the (131 million of tonnes) in 1980 by Americans whereas japan and korea made up 28 and 0 respectively.Subsequntly,in 1990,US made up (151),and Eventually,after 10 years(192).
It can be seen that,waste output in Ireland,Poland and Portugal increased slightly and comprised fewer figures compared to other other countries.Ireland saw by far the fewest wate production(0.6) while, portugal (2)
and poland (4) in 1980.Coming to the 2000,waste materials was similar in both ireland and poland at (5) while Poland had the more figures (6.6).

please give me feedback and mark. (its for all)

The table compares the amount of waste produced in the last twenty years from 1980 to 2000 in six different countries in the interval of ten-year period.
It is very clear that the amount of disposal product in USA is dramatically higher than all other countries. In 1980 total waste disposed in USA was 131 million tonnes in contrast with Japan; the next higher country which was only 28 million tonnes and about 7 million tonnes in the other countries except Korea which was not indicated in the table.
In 2000 even, the waste production was much more higher than before. In USA, it reached up to 192 million tonnes, 53 million tonnes in Japan and 5 million tonnes in Ireland which was only 0.6 million in 1980 even though not indicated in 1990. At the same time, there was an increment of a 1 million tonnes of waste products in Poland as well as Portugal in 1990 from the amount of wastes in 1980 and reached to 6.6 and 5 million of tones respectively. Despite of all, the waste production in Korea was dropped by 12 million of tonnes from 31 million tonnes in 1990 to 19 million tonnes in 2000 though it was not noticed in 1980.
Over all, the waste production in all over these countries was rapidly growing up except in Korea which seemed to fall down.

hi simon i am one of your admirers who look after your daily broadcasts
plz give me your feed back for my report posted above

Dear Simon.
I wonder if we should use topic sentences for the third and fourth paragraphs of writing task 1 or topic sentences is only specific for task 2.
Thank you

Hi Simon,

I'm preparing for IELTS exam and i really need your advice about writing section, particularly Task 1.So, I was wondering if i should describe x-axis or y-axis as an introduction when describing line graph ?
Thanks in advance.

Hi Elnur,
In the introduction you ought to restate the question using different vocabs and making sure you wouldn,t miss dates, country names or other identification markers that you can find in the question sentence and on the frame of the figures
Bye

Hi Hassan,

You don't need to worry about topic sentences for task 1.

...

Hi Elnur,

You can describe the x and y axes if you want, but you don't need to. I never do.

This is an model Answer for this question : it covers all year and all 6 different countries.

This table shows the total amount of waste produced in different nations. This table has four columns and 7 rows. The rows show the total amount of waste produced in millions of tonnes for each of the six countries. The title for the columns show the different years in which the waste productions was measured from 1980 to 2000 in increments of 10 years.

The most striking point is that the US, is the largest waste production country in both decades. On the other hand, the country with the lowest production of waste is Ireland, though it is missing data for 1990. The second highest waste production takes place in Japan, but is still 4 times less compared to the US. Another key feauture that the table outlines is that in all countries waste production had a general increase expcept for Korea. In Korea there is no data available for 1980, but in 1990 total waste production was at 32 million tonnes, this reduced by 11 million tonnes in 2000. The two European countries, Poland and Portugal both show a very similar trend, the total waste production in these countries increases slightly in each decade from 1980 to 2000.

Following a look at the trends in this table, it can be seen that the larger the geographical area of a country, the larger the waste production is. For this reason that the waste production in the US is the highest and the lowest in Ireland.

@Siyar thats is not a model answers, you need to describe it for the PAST, instead of 'is' you should use (was, or were)

Hi Simon,below is my answer, please kindly check it! thanks so much!

The given table offers the glimpse of the numerous of spoiled product among six different countries during 3 periods.
As can be seen from the graph, the amount of waste production was increasing considerably in almost countries in this duration,excepted from Korea. US dumped the biggest amount of garbage, reaching 131 in 1980 to 192 million of tonnes in 2000. Japan followed behind, accounting for 28 million of tonnes to climb twofold in 2000.Poland and Portugal are on the list as well, but account for a smaller rejected production (6,6 ; 5 respectively in 2000). Ireland,in addition to, is evaluated was the least number with just 0.6 in 1980, followed by a dramatic soar in 2000 with 5 million of tonnes.
otherwise, although Korea discarded the huge amount of rubbish , but the trend declined significianly in the end of period.
In conclusion, the amount of waste product in US is the highest and the lowest is in Ireland.

Dear Simon,

Your website is the most useful IELTS help I've found. I've been following your instruction and this is my first Writing Task 1 essay. Could you please take a quick look at it and it'd be appreciated if some your comments were shown here. Thank you for all the things you gave us.


The table compares the amount of waste output in Ireland, Japan, Korea, Poland and Portugal and US in three years-1980, 1990, and 2000.
Overall, the amount of waste production rose in every country apart from Korea. The most noticeable from the table is that US produced by far the most waste in three years.
In 1980, the amount of waste material produced in US was 131 million tons, compared to 28 million tons of Japanese waste production. This figure for Japan in 1990 rose to 32 million tons, higher one million than this of Korea but was almost five times less than waste output in US, at 151 million tons. Ten years later, the figure for Korea decreased dramatically, at 19 million tons while the amount of waste material in Japan and US increased to 53 and 192 million tons respectively.
The amount of waste production in left countries was less than the previous countries with 0.6 million tons in Ireland, 2 million tons in Portugal and 4 million tons in Poland in 1980. Although there was a significant increase in producing waste, the figure in 2000 for Ireland only stood at 5 million tons- as same level as Portugal’s, compared with 6.6 million tons in Poland.

The table compares the output of waste produced by six different countries in 1980 , 1990 and 2000 respectively. The noticeable figure is that US produced by far the most amount of waste in three different years . It can be clearly seen that the waste production rose in every country over the twenty year period apart from korea.
In 1980, US produced 131 million tonnes of watste material while the figures for Japan stood at 28 million tonnes. No figures were therefore, recorded for korea in 1980 but in 1990, 31 million tonnes were created in this country. By 2000, In US production of waste had risen to 192 million tonnes while Japan's figures had risen to 53 million tonnes. However, Korea managed to reduced its output to 19 million tonnes.
Ireland, Poland and portuagal only produced a total of 30 million tonnes between them , adding the for all three years together.
Overall, figures for almost all of the countries contributing to the output of waste material had risen over the twenty year period.

Simon, Can I have your opinion on This Task of Mine :?

Hi Sir Simon,

I had been following your site for few days now and I found it very heplful and interesting... I had taken IELTS exams several times and unfortunately I have trouble reaching my required scores. I hope that you will help me meet my requirements.

As your student in this task. I have tried to write the task and I and wishing that you will have time to look and have some comments for improvements not just for me but for your readers and followers.

The table presented shows the amount of waste produced in Ireland, Japan, Korea, Polland, Portugal and US for a period of 20 years from 1980 to 2000. It is observed that the figures varied from one country to another.

In 1980, US had produced 131 million tonnes of waste materials which inceased to 151 million tonnes in 1990. Furthermore, it continued to rise during 2000 with 192 million tonnes of waste materials. On the other hand, Japan had 28 million tonnes of waste produced during 1980. It gradually climbed to 32 million tonnes after 10 years and maintained the trend producing 53 million tons of waste products in 2000. Korea amasingly had no recorded waste materials produced in 1980. However, in 1990, the waste produced was 31 million tons slightly lower than Japan with 32 million tons. Suprisingly, Korea managed to decrease its waste materials after a decade from 31 milllion tons to 19 million tons almost double from 1990 to 2000 recorded figures.

On one hand, Ireland, Poland, and Portugal had the least waste production in 1980 with 0.6 million tons from Ireland, 4 million tons from poland and 2 million tons of waste materials from Portugal. These countries had a gradual increase of waste production in 1990 figuring 3 million tons for Portugal and 5 million tons for Poland while Ireland had no was materials recorded. By 2000, Poland had 6.6 million tons of waste prodcution higher than Ireland and Portugal which is 5 million tons of waste materials.

In conclusion, some counties continued to have a growing waste production while others had managed to decrease their waste materials.

everyone gets above 9 bands bcz the words length rose dramatically from 150 to 3oo

Hi All and Dear Simon, The table compares the amount of waste materials produced by six countries from 1980 to 2000. It is clearly noticeable that the USA is by far the most waste producing country throughout the period shown. However, the total amount of waste output rose in each country over the two decades except Korea. The Americans produced the highest amount of waste over the whole period, and at 131 in 1980 to 192millions tonnes in 2000. In second place of the chart is Japan, though this nation produced significantly lower amount of waste than the USA. It was 28millions tonnes in 1980 which then nearly doubled by the year 2000. However, Korea in terms of waste output saw an exception, their waste production fell from 31 to 19 millions tonnes from 1990 to 2000 and no figure is shown for 1980. Among the other three less waste making countries, the figures for Poland were relatively higher than Portugal in each of the given year and nearly twofold in amount in first two year, at 4 and 5millions tonnes in compared to 2 and 3 millions tonnes respectively.Whereas, the waste that produced by Ireland dramatically jumped from 0.6 millions tonnes in 1980 to 5 millions tonnes by the year 2000. Thanks to all.
