One of the things we get asked about the most by our students is prepositions for dealing with writing task 1. Our first class on describing data provides some rules about how to use prepositions in writing task 1.
This class provides an exercise to help you analyse data and structure your report and a practice activity which will test your ability to use prepositions. As always, let us know what you think and leave your ideas in the comments section at the end.
Below is a typical IELTS Academic Task 1 graph that we are expected to summarise.
We will look at a model answer for this task in Exercise 2. First, let's look at what you already know about how to answer a task like this.
|1.||A large or fast change|
|2.||A small or slow change|
|3.||Constant change by a similar amount|
In the next of our lessons on line graphs we look at how to change the verb/adverb collocations that we have already learnt into adjective/noun collocations. Using a range of different collocations will further help to boost your Lexical Resource band.
We also have many otheracademic task 1 lessons for you to explore.
