A few people have asked about the question on page 52 of Cambridge IELTS 5. It shows two bar charts with age groups. Click here to see the question.
As usual, I recommend writing 4 paragraphs:
- A quick introduction to say what the charts show.
- An overview of the main features - one sentence for each chart.
- Describe the first chart in detail.
- Describe the second chart in detail.
Here's an example introduction and overview:
The first bar chart compares students of different ages in terms of why they are studying their chosen courses, and the second chart compares the same age groups in terms of the help they require at work.
It is clear that the proportion of people who study for career purposes is far higher among the younger age groups, and decreases steadily with age. The need for employer support also decreases with age, but only up to the point when employees enter their forties.
