Test your understanding of this English lesson

Test your understanding of the English lesson by answering these questions. You will get the answers and your score at the end of the quiz.
In the writing section of the IELTS, you will always have to describe a bar graph.

On the IELTS, you will have about 60 minutes to write about bar graphs. You must write at least 500 words about bar graphs.

For writing task 1, you should give always your opinion on why the bar graph looks the way it does.

As soon as you see a bar graph on the IELTS, the first thing you should do is:

Fill in the blanks with the verb form of "different":
Cats _______ _______ dogs.

Fill in the blanks with a grammatically correct answer.
Coffee consumption is ________ in Korea than in South Africa.

Of all the continents, total energy consumption is ____________ in Antarctica.

"The bar graph shows the average energy consumption rates for five cities."
Which word can I use instead of "shows"?

According to the bar graph, beer consumption in England is relatively high. ________, beer consumption in Saudi Arabia is significantly lower.

On the IELTS, you will need to write what the main trends or patterns are. Choose a suitable expression to introduce the following sentence:
The winters in Toronto are warmer now than in the past.

Hi Emma .
Thank you for this vidéo and all the threads of other IELTS related vidéo .
Emma , may we use -to accentuate quickly the number of words in our writing – phrases rather than synonym . For instense , rather than saying ,”the graph demonstrate” we would say , “the graph brings to light multiple pieces of information ” . That way the 150 words would be reached rapidly .
Thanks for your comment .
See you

A very long and extended lesson to improve our writing acknowledges in the International English Language Testing System (IELTS), but I thought that your opinion about the types of graphics that you find in the exam was important, but it doesn’t, you only have to describe in general terms an obvious topic and focus on it, if it’s possible using jargon of the topic to get a better task. Thanks a lot, teacher Emma, a good explanation on how to describe graphic information in an exam like the IELTS.

Why here is so boring and quiet???? I know that we should comment on new lessons but I believe if we want to be better in speaking and writing, we’d better be more active in arguing and interaction. Who’s with me?
