Several people have asked me for help with the following question, from Cambridge IELTS book 9:
The chart below shows the total number of minutes (in billions) of telephone calls in the UK, divided into three categories, from 1995-2002.
Here's my suggested outline for a 4-paragraph report:
- Introduction: rewrite the question statement in your own words.
- Overview: point out which category was highest in each year, which was lowest, and which saw the biggest changes.
- Details: compare the 3 categories in 1995, then say what happened up until 1999.
- Details: notice what happened to local calls from 1999 onwards, and contrast this with the other 2 categories. Finish with a comparison of the figures in 2002.
