Several people have asked me for help with the following task from Cambridge IELTS book 10.
The tables below give information about sales of Fairtrade*-labelled coffee and bananas in 1999 and 2004 in five European countries.
*Fairtrade: a category of products for which farmers from developing countries have been paid an officially agreed fair price.
As usual, this is what we need to do:
- Write an introduction by paraphrasing the question statement.
- Write a summary of the information (2 sentences). Look for overall trends, not individual numbers.
- Select the most important information to describe in detail (include between 5 and 10 specific numbers from the table, for example). Try to group this description of details into two paragraphs.
