Hi Simon,

Thank you very much for this useful question but I think map question is not a popular type question, I mean it is rare. So I think we should ignore it completely.

Regards.

To Wiz Khalifa ....

Even if this type of question is not very common, we should be ready and prepared for it. Beside, writing Task 1 measures your ability to describe a graph regardless of what does it contains, so you should enhance your describing skills by practising on different types of graph.

Simon, you are the best

There is a feeling that diagram/map/process questions are actually becoming a bit more popular.

The second one is correct.

You introduced the map in order of time.
You split evenly all the four periods of development into two parts which was described individually in the third and fourth paragraph. Besides, the Park and Golf course and the railway was put into the third paragraph and the motorway was placed in the fourth one.
The good vocabulary includes growth, infrastructure, populated areas, cover, grow along, expansion, alongside, intersections with

Thanks Simon

Thanks for sharing this map essay again! It gave me a chance to practice it again.

1.The description order bases on the time.
2.village, transport
3.populated area,near to,transport infrastructure, grow along, crossing this area from west to east,take place

Sometimes maps are not given with any direction/ compass. From evaluation point of view, isn't this penalised for including the directions to point out an area in the map. Can it be generalised to common directions?

Dear Simon
I appreciate your great efforts in IELTS Training.
Best regards
Mahmoud Nafa
