Hello. I'm Margot Politis. Welcome to Study English, IELTS preparation.

0:19

Today on Study English we're going to give you some tips and strategies for answering

0:24

Task 1 IELTS Academic questions.

0:27

We'll look at what's involved in planning an essay, and then we'll try planning answers

0:32

to some practice questions.

0:34

Task 1 of the IELTS Academic module asks you to describe data.

0:45

The key word is describe.

0:48

That means you don't need to comment on or interpret the data. Your task is only to describe

0:54

the data.

0:56

When you're writing a description, it's important to know what the context is and who your audience

1:02

is.

1:04

In Task 1, the audience is usually a university lecturer or a teacher. So we know that it

1:11

should be formal.

1:13

Let's review what we know about task 1.

1:17

The key word is describe, and the context is formal.

1:24

There's a range of things you might be asked to describe. Let's have a look at some examples.

1:31

You might be asked to describe data.

1:34

That could be in a bar graph or column graph,

1:40

a pie chart or a line graph.

1:43

Or it could be presented in the form of a table.

1:49

You might have to describe some kind of process or cycle.

1:53

You could also be shown a diagram of a machine or object and asked to describe the parts

2:00

or the function.

2:03

Now, let's take a look at a practice question. Here's an example Task 1 question:

2:10

This table gives participation rates in higher education, in New South Wales, for males and

2:18

females according to home location, in urban, rural or remote areas, for the year 2004.

2:26

We also have a graph.

2:29

The graph shows the same information as the table.

2:34

We can see that we have information about the number of men and women who go onto higher

2:40

education, or university, in three different areas.

2:46

Before we can describe this data, it's a good idea to think about how to organise our description.
