There are two graphs, the first one is the bar graph which finds the number of people either males or females who are attending various evening courses in year 2009.The second one is the pie graph which shows the ages of attendants.

On looking at the number of people attending in different courses, we find that the language course has the highest number, and on having a look at ages, we find that 50 years old or over are the most interested.

At the pie chart we find the language course has the biggest number with ladies more than men, coming in second place is the painting club with a little bit increase in numbers of males who are attending this course, in the third place comes the drama class with women still beating men in the attendance and lastly is the sculpture course which shows more interested men than women.
In the pie graph the least attendants in the adult education are those aged under 20 and the highest who are aged over 50 followed by 40-49 age group.

I donno why on comment the 1st paragraph lost

oh sorry i missed leaving a space between the 2 paragraphs

The bar chart compares the popularity of four evening courses with males and females at an adult education center in 2009. The pie chart illustrates the percentages of mature students according to their ages.

Overall, women dominated the evening courses except for the sculpture sessions. The courses were more attractive to older adults particularly in the 50 or over age group.

20 females attended the drama class in 2009, which doubled the number of males in the same class (at 10). More people were interested in painting at this center than in drama, with 30 ladies and around 25 gentlemen. The least popular course was the sculpture, in which the number of men was unusually higher than females (10 vs. 5). The language course was most attractive to females at around 40 of them attending it, in comparison to just 20 males in this course.

The popularity of the four courses in creased with age. There was only 5% of young adults aged under 20 joining the courses, while significant 42% of older students aged 50 or over attended evening education. The percentage of participants in the courses increased by around 5 to 10% every decade from aged 20s to 40s.

The bar graph displays the numbers of two sexes-males and females attending the different evening courses at an adult education centre in the year 2009.The chart portrays information about the ages of the participants of the evening courses.

According to the first picture, the large number of females attended the language course(i.e 40) whereas males attended the painting (i.e 25).The number of women attended sculpture was five whereas ten men were involved in sculpture and drama.

As can be seen in pie-chart, the largest percentage of participants were of the age of 50(i.e 42%) and above and the smallest percent were of the age group under 20 (i.e 5%). However 11%, 16% and 26% of the participants were of the age of 20-29, 30-39 and 40-49 respectively.

In conclusion, large number of men and women attended the painting and language courses respectively in 2009 and the highest percentage of participants were of the age group of 50 and above.

There are two graps. The bar graph showed the quantity of people who attended diverse evening course based on their gender while the pie chart illustrated proportion of people based on their age in 2009

It is clear that in the bar graphm, the language class is the most popular for both genders.By constrast, the sculpture class attracted lowest people .Overall, the figure of men who participated distinctive evening class is lower than that of women.

At the pie chat, the majority of people who took part in these courses was aged 50 or over.While the people who was under 20 recorded by far the lowest proportion.The percentage of people who aged 40-49 was nearly double as high as those who was 20-29.

The bar chart compares the number of people in both sexes who enrolled as part time students in different courses in an adult education facility in 2009.

It is noticeable that participation of women was more than men in majority of courses in this center. Older adult were more interested on attending to these courses than any other age group.

About 40 women attended on the language course and this number for men was only 20. The same pattern of distribution was seen in drama course with 20 female students versus 10 male ones. While in painting class, as the second most popular course at the center, the number of students in both sexes was close to each other (30 women versus 20 men) sculpture course was the only program in which male students were more interested than females, with 10 men against only 5 women.

As far as the age of participants was concerned, 42% of students were at the age of 50 and over, and as it could be anticipated in an adult education center, only 5% of enrolled students were at the age 20 or younger.

The bar chart compares the attendee of male and female across five different age groups over a range of night time courses at the centre of adult education in 2009.

It is noticeable that the numbers of female attendees were more than that of male participants in all courses except sculpture.
In language course, the numbers of women were twice that of men with the number of 40 and 20 respectively. The same thing can be seen in the Drama course where the attendees of women and men were 20 and 10 separately. Also, the numbers of female attendees were slightly higher than male attendees in the painting class. But, in the sculpture course, the numbers of female attendees had only half that number of male participants.

Among all attendees of both female and male, 42% of attendees were aged 50 or over while only 5% of them were under 20. The proportion of aged 20 to 29 represented 11% while the data was 26% for attendees aged from 40 to 49, and the figure for them aged from 30 to 39 was 16%

The bar chart compares the numbers of students enrolling in four types of evening courses by gender at an adult education centre in 2009 while the pie chart compares the proportions of the students by age groups.
It is noticeable that more woman attended adult education in three out of four categories of evening courses, except for sculpture course. Also, there was an increasing trend in the share of course participants with age.
In language and drama courses, the number of female participants was twice as high as their male counterparts, at 40 and 20 million women respectively. By contrast, the number of women students in sculpture courses was only half of the figure for men (10m), standing at 5 million. Besides, 30 million females and 20 million males participated in painting courses in 2009.
In the adult education centre, 42% of students were over 50 years old while 26 of the total were aged between 40 and 49. Age group of 30-39 accounted for 16% of total course participants, followed by 20-29-year-old students (11%) and the students under 20 (5%).

The figures illustrate the numbers of male and female who attended several evening classes at an adult education institution in 2009, and the classification of these participants based on age.

It is clear that in the drama, painting and language classes, the number of female students outnumbered the male’s, except for the sculpture class. Despite of gender classification, it is fascinating to see that most of the courses attendants were people whom aged was 50 and above.

In 2009, the number of adult females who took language and drama classes were around 40 and 20 students, while the male’s figure in both classes were halved of the female’s. Then there were approximately 30 women who joined the painting class in that year, which was slightly higher the men’s which was around 25 people. It is noticed that in the sculpture class, there were 10 male adults whom participated in the class, which was twice higher than the female’s.

Based on the participants’ age, it can be seen that most of the attendants were senior people whom aged were 50 or over, as the group proportion reached 42%. The figures for middle age people, whom aged were between 40-49, 30-39 and 20-29 years old, were accounted at 26%, 16% and 11%. As for the youngest group (aged below 20), they had the smallest percentages at around 5%.

Hi Simon,
I was wondering if you could also prepare a video on how to use prepositions correctly.

The bar chart compares the number of male and female course members who joined the selected evening programs at an adult centre in 2009, with the pie chart reveals these members of different age groups.

Overall, the number of women participated evening courses was much higher than men did, and the majority of these participants’ age were over 40.

As to the the bar chart, 10 men attended the drama course, however, the number of women was double. Around 25 painting members were male, compared to females, its number reached to 30. The highest number of women almost 40 liked learning language, however, just half of this number of men enjoyed it. By contrast, the number of men learning sculpture was almost double higher than women did.

Compared to the pie chart, 42% of these participants were 50 years old or over. There were just over one fourth course members’ age between 40 and 49. Similarly, almost one out of four course participants were 20 to 39 years old. However, the smallest propotion of these participants just 5% were teenagers with aged under 20.

There are show two graphs, first one is the bar chart of the number of men and women who attending various evening courses at an adult education centre in 2009 and second one is the pie chart of the ages of these course participants.
Overall, the number of women who joined of that courses is higher than men. From the pie chart we can find that age of women at 50 or over is the highest.
In the bar chart, shows that women are the most interested to joined with language class than painting and drama, the number about 40 peoples. And painting class is the second choices of women to attending evening courses about 30 peoples and drama class is about 20 peoples. Unfortunatelly, there wasn’t many women interested to join with sculpture class.
From the bar chart, we know that 42% of participants are people at the ages 50 or over. Maybe old peoples tried to fill out they spare times to did good activity such as learned language which is good to exercise they brain. And the least participants are people at the age under 20 that is just 5%.

The given bar chart shows the numbers of the male and female paying attention in some different evening lectures at educational center in 2009, while the pie chart gives the percentages of five aged groups spending time to participate with these courses.
It is clear that the first highest number of women who attended in language, and the second highest number of the male who has paid attention in painting in 2009. However, in pie chart, the percentage of aged 50 or over was the highest, at about 42 percent, and the lowest percent was in aged under 20, about 20 percent.
Firstly, in 2009, male and female attending were lowest in sculpture. The number for male was ten people and the number for female was about 4 people, compare with drama, the number of women were higher than men, about 20 men and 10 women respectively.
Secondly, group of aged 40 to 49 was the second largest and nearly doubled of aged 20-29 and aged 30-39. The percentage for aged 20-29 was 11 percent and aged 30-39 was 16 percent.

Dear Simon, I tried to keep 9 but it turned out as 10 sentences.
When I uploaded mine, I saw your model Answer and thank you.

The charts compare the participation in adult evening classes, categorised by the different gender and age in 2009.
Overall, it is clear that more females than males enrolled in most subjects, where language was the most popular choice of women and men participated most in painting course. In addition, the higher the age, the greater their enrolments in these courses.
According to the bar chart,there were twice as many female language students as males, at 40 and 20 learners respectively. The similar pattern was seen in drama classes, although the total participants decreased by half, compared to the most popular language course, 20 women and 10 man attended it. In contrast, the ratio reversed in sculpture course, where more males than females are involved, 10 and 5 respectively. The figures for painting course were much closer, at 30 for males and 25 for females.
Based on the pie chart given, over 40% of aged 50 and over represented the largest group of all evening learners, whereas young students under aged 20 was the lowest, only 5% in that year. Just over a quarter (26%) of all were in their forties. The figure for students aged between 20 and 39 was around a third of all 2009 enrolments. ( at 16% in their thirties and 11% in their twenties.)

Dear Simon

Dear Simon and everyone,

Would much appreciate your feedback on my essay. Thanks so much

The charts give information about the four evening courses attended by men and women at an adult education centre, in 2009, along with their age profiles.

Clearly, the major proportion of students that enrolled for the evening classes were women. Most students were in the 50 years and above age group, whereas people aged under 20 years were the least.

In 2009, language skills was the most preferred evening course, while the sculpture class had the least attendance. A total of 60 students attended the language course of which the number of female students was twice that of male students. By contrast, only 10 male students enrolled for the sculpture class, whereas female students were half this number. The second-most popular evening class was painting which had a total of 55 students.

Most students for all evening classes were in the 50 and over age group and this figure stood at 42.5%, while young people below the age of 20 years were a minority at 5%. The number of students of both genders aged 40-49 years nearly equaled the total number of students in the 20-29 and 30-39 age groups.

Dear Simon,

Your website is an excellent source to teach IELTS exam students like myself. And, I am grateful to you for explaining concepts in a simple and lucid way.

I have just noticed that you have posted an essay posted above with a Band 9 grading.

I am a bit perplexed about the numbers stated in thousands as I cannot seem to find it in the original bar and pie charts.

Further, I am also a bit confused if this essay was indeed posted by you. Would sincerely appreciate a clarification. Thanks so much

Dear Simon

Please do this task


Hi Simon ,

The bar chart compares the number of men and women doing 4 different evening courses at adult learning center in 2009, while the pie chart displays the percentage of students in 5 separated age categories.

It can be seen that more women attended evening courses than men except in sculpture course. Also, it is noticeable that the number of participants aged 50 and over is dominant in adult learning center.

In drama, painting and language courses, majority of students are female. In details, the number of women participated in drama and language courses is nearly double the number of men, namely 10 men and 20 women in drama, 20 male and 40 female in language. Around 25 male students were in painting course and this figure was approximately 5 unit lower than number of female students. However, less than 5 female attended sculpture course compared to 10 male.

42% of total students are aged 50 and over. The second largest proportion of students is aged from 40 to 49, namely 26%. The amount of people aged 20-29 and 30-39 accounted for 11% and 16% respectively. Meanwhile, only 5% of students are aged under 20.

Sir, i have a question about what does it mean 2000s. I have seen that you have used in your writing task 1'answer. Can you clear me, Please?

Hi everyone,

I do not think the writing posted by SIMON (the 17th comment on the list) is our teacher Simon's writing. Firstly, there is no thousand in the charts, and Simon never makes this silly mistake. Secondly, Simon always put the number of words at the bottom of the writing. Finally, the writing style is not aligned with Simon's style.

If I am wrong, just ignore what I have said.

If I am right, please the imitator should respect this authentic blog and the invaluable work that Simon dedicates to IELTS candidates. This is the only place where ielts candidates worldwide can learn decent knowledge in IELTs. We all study diligently on Simon's writing word by word ( certainly I do), and the fake model writing will mislead learners.

Hi Jing,
I think you are right, our teacher does not use capital letters for his

I am looking for someone to practice speaking, could you please email me.



The essay that appeared above was not written by me (someone used my name). I've deleted it to avoid confusion.

Well noticed Jing and Lucy!

Thank you for your clarification, teacher SIMON!

now it seems to me that all the writing resources have to be purchased, which is quite disappointing.

The bar graph compares the number of both male and female participants who are taking part four night courses at the adult education center during 2009. The pie chart compares the proportion of participation among five different age groups in the courses.

Overall, women participation was the highest in three courses out of four. The age group of 50 or more had the maximum participant in courses whereas less than 20 had the least no of participants.

The number of women participants in language course was 40, and it was the highest number among all other courses, but the male participant was only half of the women. By contrast, women enrolment in the sculpture course was the least which was 5 whereas, male was 10. Also, similar male student was noticed in drama course and its number was rose from 10 to 25 in painting course. Similarly, women’s participation in drama and painting was 20 and 30 respectively.

The age group of more than 50 were participate more at the adult education center, with 42% which is the summation of 16 % and 26 % of age group 30 to 39 and 40 to 49 respectively. The figure for age group below 20 was the least (5%) whereas, age group 20 to 29 was 11%.

Hi to every one.what do you think about usage of quantity instead of number simon?Can we use it?

Hi everyone. I have given it a try. and I would like to share it.

The bar chart illustrates the participation of adults by gender in an education center that offers them a range of evening courses in 2009 while the pie chart provides the aging structure of these course registers.

As can be seen in the bar chart, painting and language classes were the most popular among females and males, but there is a marked difference that although the number of men participating in the former course was higher the latter, the latter course received more enrolments from women. The other two less registered courses, which are drama and sculpture, have the same male participation level, at 10 people for each. This is completely different when we see the statistics of women; exactly 20 females enrolled in drama, fourfold the number of males who did the same thing.

As regards the pie chart, it is clear that the older people became, the higher participation rate they had in the aforesaid courses. For example, people aged from 50 and above took up just over 40 per cent of all participants, followed by the group of people at the age between 40 and 49 with approximately a quarter of all. Other groups, 30-39-year-olds, 20-29-year-olds, and those whose age was below 20, constituted smaller proportions with precisely 16 per cent, 11 per cent, and 5 per cent respectively.

hi I need your help in writing please help me

Two graphs are shown in the picture. One is a bar chart illustrating the number of people (both men and women) in attendance at an evening lesson while the other is a pie chart illustrating the age of the students by percentage at a particular school in the 2009.

It is clear from the demographic characteristics of the population that more men and women aged 50 and above were in attendance compared to other age groups.

Drama, painting, language was the most attended course by the women with 20%, 30% and 40% respectively. In contrast, men recorded high attendance in only sculpture classes with 10%.

Overall, women were seen to have attended more courses than men by 10 - 20 percentage in drawing, painting, and language. whereas, sculpture classes was the only one with high attendance for men in the year 2009.

Hi all, please look at my essay and point out the mistakes or suggest a score

The bar chart compares the number of men and women enrolling at 4 different courses available in evenings at a centre for adult learning in the year 2009. The pie chart illustrates the data regarding the ages of people who attended these classes.

It is clear that overall a far greater number of ladies attended the courses offered by the adult education centre in the given year than their male counterparts. Also, fewer people aged under 30 were interested in those courses than the people above 30 years old.

In drama and language courses the proportion of female students was twice the number of male pupils, 20 women against 10 men in the former, while 40 ladies in comparison with only 20 gentlemen in the latter. The number of female participants was also considerably higher than the number of men joining the painting classes, with figures at 30 for women and 25 for men. In contrast, the trend was reversed in people enrolling for sculpture course, the figure for men doubled than for women, at 10 and 5 respectively.

The pie chart depicts that the majority of people taking part in the courses belonged to age group 50 or over, at 42%. The figure declined in accordance with the age group, at 26%, 16%, and 11% for less than 50 years, under 40 years and 20-29 year olds respectively. These courses could attract just a minor percentage of young people under 20, at only 5%.

The bar chart tell us the popularity of different evening courses at the adult education in the year 2009 and the pie chart depicts the percentage of the students ages of these courses

According to the bar chart the maximum number of the students are in language program 60 and the least pupils are in the sculpture course only 15.whereas the second most popular program is the painting and then the drama club,number of pupil attending these are 55 and 30 respectively.On the other hand bar chart shows the double number of females are participating in the language and the drama course although there is opposite trend in the sculpture more men are studying then women.Whereas in the painting almost equal male and female are taking part.

The pie chart illustrating 42% of the participants are older then 50 years and then 26 % are of 40 to 50 years and these two counts 68% of the total pupils.younger persons are taking less interest in the evening courses as compare to the older population.only 5% are less then 20 years,11% are between 20-30 years and 16% are 30 to 40 years.

According to the bar chart and pie chart it is clear that more females are participating in the evening courses and 70% older peoples are taking these courses.

Please correct me.thanks in advance

can someone correct this please??

The given bar graph represents the number of participation by males and females in different types of evening lessons in adult education center while the pie chart represents the percentage of different age groups attending it in 2009.

It is clear from the the bar graph that woman had active participation in most of the subjects apart from sculpture . In the pie chart, we can see that higher the age group greater the participation percentage and vice-versa.

Taking about the bar diagram; it is clear that both male and female have the lowest number of participants in sculpture which is 5 and 3 respectively.Both genders have fairly equal amount of intrest for Painting whereas the intrest for drama and language is significantly different. Females have double the number of particants than males with 20 in drama and 4o in language.

Wheraes; in the pie chart, highest percentage(42%) were from the age group 50 or over followed by age group 40-49 in the second place with 26% attendants. The least percentage(5%) of attendants were aged 20 or under followed by age 20-29 for the second lowest percentage(11%).Likewise the age group 30-39 maintained in third position by both lowest and highest rankings.

The bar chart compares the quantity of male and female participated in four evening courses at an adult education centre in 2009 while the pie chart represents the proportion of attendees divided by 5 age groups.
Overall, women dominated in all subjects with an exception to sculpture. Furthermore, the group of aged 50 or over was the most popular to attend these classes.
With regards to the first chart, language was the most favourite course for women with 40 persons which was double the number of men. This gap was also seen exactly in drama class with 20 ladies. Similarly, there were 5 more females in painting course than males. Conversely, the number of women who joined in the sculpture class was half that of men at 5 persons.
It is clearly seen from the pie chart that 50 or over group was the most popular to have evening classes at 42%, more than 8 times as opposed to under 20 group. Just over a quarter of 40-49 age group registered for the evening courses whereas far less than one fifth and just more than 10% of 30-39 and 20-29 age groups respectively showed interest in this type of education.

The charts, which consist of a bar and a pie chart, provide information about an adult educational center offering various courses in 2009. In the bar chart the number of men and women are compared according to the different courses they took, while pie chart reflect their ages.

Language is very popular with women, as all women(40) who took this form of education did language courses. Painting was next, at 30, while drama courses only had half the number recorded for language(20). For men, it was painting that had the highest attendance, with 25. Meanwhile Sculpture was the least popular for both sexes, having less than 15 people combined.

in terms of their ages as clearly seen in the pie chart, approximately half of the people who took these courses were over 50 years of age. one in four of them were between 40-49 years. Those under 20 years were the fewest at 5%. while people of ages 20-29 and 30-39 years had almost similar attendances at 11% and 16% respectively.

overall, there are variations in choice of course with regards to gender, and the more a person advances in age, the more likely they are to attend evening education.

Hi Simon.

Thanks for your excellent study materials.

Would it be OK to say the following as an overview?

Overall, there are variations in the numbers of male and female participants attending various evening courses including W, X, Y and Z, as well as disparities among attendees different age groups.

The two graphs among where the first one is the bar-graph that illustrates the number of the man and women that attending the various evening courses and second one is the pie-chart which shows the ages of the man ad women that are attending the evening classes.
In the bar-graph it shows that man and women attending the evening classes of Drama ,painting ,sculpture and languages .Among these classes the number of man and women prefer to take language class which is high and they are less interested to attend the sculpture class .Similarly ,the more number of women are attending the language class which 40 as compare the man which is 20 where as the number of man high in painting class i.e 30 than women which is 25.
Like wise the pie-chart illustrates the ages of the man and women taking the evening class. According to the figure the more number of ages people who are taking the class are between 50 or over which is 42% and less % is 5% which is under 20 ages people .

The bar graph depicts men and women who are attending four different night courses being offered in an adult education center way back in 2009. The pie chart however, shows the age of the students who took-in the courses.

Overall, it can be seen on the bar graph that the language and painting are among the courses that have the most number of enrolled students both for men and women.
It is also apparent and quite interesting to note participants who aged 50 years old and above dominated the said evening class.

In that night class, 40 persons who are women enrolled in the language course, its actually doubled the number of men who are only 20 participants who took it. Painting is the second most in demand course being offered as both men and women have almost the same number of participants 25 persons for men and 30 are those women. Meanwhile, the two other courses which are drama and sculpture have quite the same number of participants too which are 10 persons and below except for the women in the drama class who are 20 of them who took the course.

When in comes of the students' age, only 5 percent who are enrolled are 20 years old and below. Majority of the participants are older adult aged 50 years old above constituting 42 percent of the total number of students. On the other hand, their are 26 percent who belong to the age group of 40 to 49 years of age, 16 percent to 30 to 39 age bracket and the remaining 11 percent are those aged 20 to 29 years of age.

Comments please....

The diagrams illustrate the information about number of male and female elderly participate in different evening courses according to various subject in 2009 and age group.

Overall, number of female participates in language class reflects the highest than other courses. Similarly, for 50 or over age group cover the high percentage participates.

It is clear that the number of female participates who take drama show was twice as much as than male participates. Likewise, For painting class female are active than male by 5 numbers. As for sculpture courses, very little people are involve to take a course. On contrast, the majority of people involve in language class in which 40 female are participates in class which is double of male participates.

As per various age group, people participates aged under 20 was just 5% which increased by 5% in 20-29 and 30-39 age group. On the other hand, for 40-49 aged group percentage of participates increased by 10%. At last but not the least Percentage of participants who get enrolled extremely high in 50 or over age group at 42%.

Simon sir, i know my writing was very poor so please teach me to write well. Waiting for your valuable reply.

The pie chart and the bar chart respectively present the age and gender situations of four night classes in an adult training centre in the year 2009.

It is clear that the older the members were, the higher percentage of them. As regards to sexes, there were more female members than male ones, with three out of four courses were dominated by women.

Looking at the details information of the pie chart, participants who were 50 year old or above accounted for the highest proportion of 42%, followed by the group of 40 to 49-year-old members. Three remaining age groups shared less than one-third of the total population, in which the youngest, who were under 20 year old, were only 5%.

In four classes, language was the most popular subject with 60 people, while sculpture class had the lowest number of people taking part in, only 15 students. In both drama and language courses, the numbers of female students doubled the numbers of males. The highest number of men was recorded in paining class with 25 of them attended.

many thanks to your great lessons and useful as well as clear methods

The data presented in bar diagram reflects the choice of adult learners in evening classes where as pie chart shows the age distribution of these learners.
In bar diagram, it is quite evident that woman learners are more interested in drama, painting and language than scripture in comparison with males. Where as in Pie chart it is predominantly noted that higher age group participated more than lower age group.
In bar diagram, woman's are exactly double than male for studying language. This trend continues for drama. For painting classes female participants are just marginally ahead of males. Finally males dominate in the scripture classes, they are in double number as compare with their gender opposite.
In pie chart, its significantly noted that just above 40% of pupils are either 50 or more than 50 years of age. Just above quarter are from age group of 40-49. The least number of learner are from age group of 20 years or less. Where as only 16% and 11% adult learners are in the age group of 30-39 and 40-49 respectively.

Simon.. We are waiting for your precious sample answer for this essay ...

Hi Samera,

You can find the full answer in my video lesson called "Writing Task 1, lesson 6" on this website:


I'm afraid it isn't available as a free lesson - most of the video lessons on that website cost $8 each.

The figures illustrate the number of male and female students who attended four different evening courses at an adult education institution in 2009, and proportions of the attendances based on age.

It is clear that there were more women than men in the drama, painting and languages classes, while in sculpture class men participants outnumbered the women. It can also be seen that the majority of the students were the senior people (aged 50 years and above), while the lowest was those whose aged were below 20 years.
It is noticed that in the language class, the number of female students had reached 40 people, which was twice as the population of the males. In the painting and drama class, populations of men’s students were accounted at around 25 and 10 people, which were lower than the women’s figure which stood at 30 and 20 people. As for the sculpture class, the number of men participants reached 10 people, while the women’s figure was halved of the men’s.

Based on the age group, it is obvious that the highest proportion of the participants were the senior age people, accounted at approximately 42%. It was then followed by the figures of two middle age group (40-49 years and 30-39 years old) which stood at 26% and 16%. As for those who were between 20 and 29 years and below 20 years, their proportions were around 11% and 5% each respectively.      

The bar chart below indicates the number of male and female adult students who attended four evening courses provided by an adult education centre in 2009. And the pie chart shows the age proportions of these learners.

It can be seen from the bar chart that lanuage was the most popular course in the adult center with 60 students in total( 40 women and 20 men ). Painting ranked the second place, and nearly 30 women attended in this course and five more than man students. A total of 30 students had the evening class of drama and woman number (20) is as twice as man’s (10). Sculpture, as the least popular course, is the only course that more male learners participanted than female.

As shown in the pie chart, a majority of the students attending the course are aged over 40 occupying 68 % of the whole student number. The courses in the adult education center are not very popular among twentysomething and people aged below twenty, with the percentage of 5% and 11% respectively.

In conclusion, more women attended the evening course in the adult education center than men in 1999 and aged-people were the main listeners of the course.

The charts illustrate the number of students attending evening classes in a training centre by different genders and age groups in 2009. In general, more adult women than men attended in most of these classes, and the older generation tended to go to evening classes more than the younger people in the same year.

Female students dominated man in various evening classes in an adult training institution, namely language, painting and drama classes. 40 females, the highest shown on the bar chart, attended language course that was double the number of males. However, sculpture courses were less popular among women, with only 5 students, the lowest figure on the chart, while the number of male students was as twice as that.

The evening classes were dominants by participants who were 40 or over, accounting for about two thirds of the total students, in which 42% comes from the oldest age group. By contrast, the smallest proportion of students attending those classes, with only 8%, was the youngest age group. Those who aged from 20-40 accounted for slightly more than a quarter of the total learners.

whats the link for this ones answer..Simon can you show me the sample for this question or the video link?

Given are two figures concerning adult educations in the year 2009. The bar chart provides data on the number of people who attended in four courses (Drama, Painting, Sculpture and Language), while the pie chart indicates the proportion of five different age levels in the courses which were held in an adult education.

Overall, what stands out from the graphs is that females were mostly motivated to attend these courses than male except sculpture which was mostly selected by men. An interesting point is that the whole courses were far more attractive for elderly people that other age groups.
Looking at details of information supplied in the bar chart, as regard as men, painting was the most popular course among them with 25 attendant slightly more than languages with 20 learners. The least popular courses were both Drama and Sculpture with 10 learners. As for women, language was the number-one course which is selected by 40 women, 10 people more than painting that came in the next level. Drama and sculpture with 20 and 5 student are at the next rank.
As for the proportion of people of different age groups, it is evident that as people grew older, their interest in taking these courses aroused, their interest increased from 11% when they were in their twenties to 26% in 40-49 year-old people. Also evident is that these course could attract mostly elderly people with 42% attendance. However youngsters less desire to use these education. Just 5% of them used this courses.

Dear Simon
could you please share your essay.

Dear Simon, we are waiting your contribution

Thank you

The bar chart compares four different evening courses in terms of the numbers of men and women attended and the pie chart gives information about the age distribution of learners in 2009.
It is clear that language class is by far the most popular among participants. S2 We can also see the number of participants increased with age, with the majority of learners from the middle age groups. S3
In 2009, there were 40 women enrolled for the language course, while men accounted for half of this amount. S4Painting class was the second most well-attended, with 30 and 25 females and males taking it respectively. S5 While 20 women studied drama, just only half this amount of men were interested and participated in this class. S6 By contrast, only a total of 15 participants took part in the sculpture course. S7
According to the pie chart, 42% of people participating evening courses were 50 or over, while almost one in four participants aged between 40 and 49. S8The number of participants fell towards the younger age spectrum. To be more specific, people from 30-39 and 20-29 age categories accounted for 16% and 11% of evening classes respectively. S9Only a minority of teenagers aged under 20 took evening courses, accounting for the remaining 5%. S10

The bar chart compares the numbers of males and females attending different night classes for education per annum. The pie chart illustrates the ages of people that attend evening classes.

Overall, it's obvious that the number of women in language classes is significantly higher. The percentage of participant ages, ranging from 50 or over are of high proportion.

Approximately 40 women are in language classes. While 30 are in painting classes and about 20 females attend drama courses. Whereas, only 5 women are participating in scripture class. In contrast, about 30 males attend painting classes. 20 men attend language courses. Whilst, approximately 10 of them participate in drama and scripture classes each.

Turning to the other hand, a pie chart. About 40% of the participant's ages ranges from 50 or over. While 26% of them are around age 40-49 and 16% of both genders are 30-39 of age. only 11% of males and females are between ages 20-29. Whereas, 5% aged under 20.
