0:02

hi I'm Emma and today we are going to be talking about

0:07

task one of the writing module for the IELTS so again this is task one for the

0:16

writing module of the else

0:18

so a lot of you may not know what happens in the writing section of the

0:23

IELTS so I it's in two parts the first part is going to be something about

0:31

maybe a graph a diagram is up to something to do with having to write a

0:36

report to describe what you see visually the second part is an essay so we're

0:45

going to be talking about the first part today

0:47

ok so the first thing to know is that you're going to have about 20 minutes to

0:52

do task 1 i'm so this is not a lot of time and it's going to be very important

0:59

for you to practices before you actually go into the IELTS task when you have to

1:04

write about a hundred and fifty words describing either a graph a chart a

1:10

table a diagram or of a flow chart you will be marked on four different things

1:18

in this task

1:19

so if it isn't something to keep in mind you're going to be marked on your usage

1:23

of vocabulary

1:25

if you use vocabulary correctly and if you use a lot of different vocabulary

1:30

you're going to be marked on grammar you're going to be marked on your

1:35

ability to do what they ask

1:37

so for example you need to write a hundred and fifty words for this task

1:42

if you write a hundred and twenty words for this task then you didn't really

1:46

meet the task requirements

1:48

and finally you're going to be marked on coherence

1:55

so do do you have in your answer and introduction and conclusion

2:01

do you use words like first of all secondly in conclusion

2:10

so again they're there for different things are going to be marked on

2:12

vocabulary grammar coherence and your ability to do what is asked of you

2:20

so your ability to meet the task requirements ok so let's get started

2:25

so this specific lesson is going to focus a lot on vocabulary

2:29

what sorts of words can you use in this task that will help you to get the the

2:34

top mark you can

2:35

all right let's get started so like I said before in this task you're going to

2:41

have to describe what you see this may be a bar chart or a bar graph so this is

2:49

what is known as a

2:51

bar graph

2:58

you might have to describe something like that you may have to describe a

3:03

line graph the line

3:07

this one is a line graph this one that looks like a pizza

3:18

this is called a pie chart so another thing that you might see on task one is

3:24

a pie charge so we have a bar graph a line graph pie chart

3:35

sometimes you may see two of these you may have to describe a pie chart and a

3:41

line graph or a bar graph and a pie chart

3:46

you may also have to if you don't get one of these

3:50

you may get what is called a flowchart

3:55

so a flow chart shows how something is organized so usually it shows different

4:07

steps so this might be step one

4:09

this might be step two step three so it's a way to show a process in to

4:13

organize information you might get something like this which is a flowchart

4:16

or you may get a table

4:20

so this is just an example of a table

4:29

and depending on which one you get you're going to be using a different

4:33

type of vocabulary so there's specific words to use when you're talking about a

4:38

bar graph there are different words to use with flow charts with tables today

4:43

we're really going to focus on bar graphs and line graphs

4:46

all right let's get started

4:50

ok so now what we are going to do is talk about how to write your

4:55

introduction and vocabulary

4:57

you can use in your introduction for this part of the IELTS so when you

5:03

present a graph

5:04

I like i said before you should have an introduction the body of what you're

5:08

going to say and a conclusion

5:10

this is going to affect your coherence marks so you want to have an

5:14

introduction body and conclusion it's very important

5:17

so a lot of students when they first see i'll just ask one in the academic

5:22

version of the IELTS they get really nervous

5:28

they don't know how to start off what they're going to say how do you start

5:31

off describing a graph

5:33

so what I'm going to talk about now is an easy introductory sentence

5:38

you can use in order to explain your graph

5:41

so I have the sentence this line graph so here's an example again of a line

5:47

graph shows the changes in sales between 1990 and 1996

5:54

so this is just an example now if I got a bar graph just change this word this

6:02

bar graph

6:07

I could also say this pie chart this table

6:16

this flow chart so whatever of image you get you can use this plus the type of

6:23

chart it is or the type of figure it is if it's a table if it's a flowchart if

6:28

it's a diagram so this diagram this pie chart this bar graph

6:33

this is almost like a mathematical formula

6:37

just imagine this Plus this Plus this Plus this equals your introduction your

6:42

first sentence in your introduction

6:44

so this bar graph and now we have a verb

6:49

so shows is good what else could you use

6:53

well you could use represents this pie chart represents you could use this pie

7:10

chart demonstrates this bar graph illustrates if you're doing it

7:32

Abel you could say this table lists like this

7:40

so what you want is you want a verb similar to these shows demonstrates

7:45

represents illustrates these are all really good

7:49

verbs to use for your introduction for the first sentence of your introduction

7:54

so this bar graph demonstrates here we have a specific example the changes in

8:01

sales

8:02

oftentimes you'll be looking at changes in sales so for example here in this

8:06

graph we have on this is known as the x-axis so x axis this is just some more

8:18

terminology of graphs so on RX access we see years 1990 1994 1996

8:27

so we're talking about time you may not see something like this but there's a

8:31

good chance you might get a graph that shows time on your x axis this is known

8:37

as the Y access

8:39

so why

8:46

and in this example on the y-axis is sales in millions of dollars so have 300

8:53

million two hundred million 100 million you may get something completely

8:58

different than this this is just an example

9:01

so I'm here so this

9:06

and again this is a line graph demonstrates the changes in sales so if

9:11

you get a different type of graph in this section you just write what it is

9:18

so you write the topic you're talking about this pie graph demonstrates the

9:24

differences between men and women in terms of further education just an

9:29

example

9:30

so whatever your topic is or incidence of disease in some land

9:36

that's another example there might be an incidence prevalence so whatever your

9:44

topic is right here

9:48

so this graph

9:52

demonstrates blank and in the last section you should write sort of the

9:59

date

9:59

whatever they're showing so if you're looking at years which is a good chance

10:04

he will be here you would you could say between 1992 1996

10:11

this was different maybe if we were looking at 2,000

10:16

- 2010 you could say this bar graph demonstrates incidents of whatever over

10:29

a 10-year period

10:36

so again you can have between the state and this date from

10:49

have a year from 1992

10:55

these are just different ways to show time which will be located on the excess

11:00

excess sorry

11:02

ok so again what you want to include in your introduction is first the type of

11:10

graph it is it a pie chart a bar graph you want a verb such as demonstrates

11:16

shows you want to say what the topic you're looking at is and you want to

11:22

talk about the dates

11:23

well what are you looking at exactly two thousand - 2010

11:27

so the boot this is how you should start off your introductory sentence

11:32

ok so we've talked a little bit about what your first sentence for this test

11:39

can be there are there are other ways to do it but the way I showed you is a

11:43

great formula

11:44

that's easy to remember and that will really help you with vocabulary marks

11:48

and coherence

11:50

so right now what we're going to focus on is some key terms key vocabulary

11:55

you can use when describing movement of a graph or a line of our graph or line

12:03

line graph

12:04

ok so let's get started so usually when we look at grass

12:10

there are three different patterns we might see three different trends we may

12:15

see an upward trend where it goes up we may see a downward trend or we may see

12:25

it remaining stable so you may see multiple translated a graph so for

12:32

example graph might have an upward trend reach a peak then

12:40

then we're kind or maybe the downward 10 first it goes up a bit and then it

12:46

becomes stable but how do we talk about describing movement

12:52

what are some key words we can use so what we're talking about a upward trend

12:57

some of the words we can use

13:00

I'll talk about verbs first we can use increase so we can call this in

13:11

increase we can say it went up and say it climbed it jumped it rose

13:32

so notice when we're talking about describing movement on the IELTS the

13:42

verbs we use these are all verbs

13:44

what tense today and if you said simple pastor correct

13:50

you want to be using a simple past when you're describing movement for IELTS

13:54

task one so we can say if this was talking about sales for example so we

14:01

look at that example before sales and this is years so we have maybe 2000 -

14:08

2010 gets a sales rose sales increased sales went up sales climbed sales jump

14:17

and then we would usually say between two thousand and two thousand ten

14:24

so this is talking about the the verbs but we can also turn this into now so

14:32

rise the noun form of of sorry Rose is a rise

14:38

so for example there was a rise in two thousand we could say there was a and

14:56

increase so this is one way to do it

15:05

I'm so if we have been down here if we decided to use it in a verbal form we

15:14

could say

15:15

sales rose between two thousand and two thousand ten ok so we looked at when it

15:36

goes up when trends go upward

15:39

what about downward trends what are some of the words we use with that

15:43

so we'll start off with verbs we can talk about a decline sales declined

15:54

you can say decreased

15:59

and again

16:02

simple past we can say went down we can say dropped we could say plummeted

16:19

if it's a very steep drop

16:23

oh ok so we can say sales plummeted and we can also say so we have declined

16:36

decreased went down dropped limited finally slump

16:43

so these are all ways to say it went to the arrow down

16:53

so again these are all burbs

16:57

so we could write it here sales decreased between two thousand and two

17:07

thousand ten sales went down between 2000 and 2010

17:17

if we decide to use a noun decline

17:23

we can say I decline

17:27

we can say a decrease a drop a slump

17:33

so many of these also have a noun form so there was a a decline say a decrease

17:50

in a slump

17:51

and so when it's important to note that

17:56

so here is what we're using the noun here is what we are using the verb

18:00

when we use the noun remember it's there was a decrease of rise

18:08

whatever in here we can actually write the topic and sales or whatever your

18:17

topic is between and then we have a date or if we use the verbal form you have

18:29

the topic sales verb and the date again

18:35

ok so finally the third trend when nothing happens

18:44

we can say it remains steady

18:50

you can also say it remains stable remains stable

19:03

it remains steady we can also call this a plateau plateau

19:16

ok so there was no sorry

19:23

sales remained steady between 2000-2010 sales remained stable

19:41

there was a plateau and sales between two thousand and two thousand ten ok so

19:55

again when you do this part of the task

19:58

you don't want to reuse the same words again and again and again it for the

20:03

whole time you're describing the movement you use when up multiple times

20:08

the the sales went up and then they went down and then they went up again and

20:12

then they went down again

20:14

the examiner is going to give you low marks on your usage of vocabulary

20:18

they want to see variety so try to memorize

20:21

you don't have to memorize all of these choose a couple maybe use increased

20:26

maybe use rose decreased dropped remain steady

20:32

I one thing I wanted to say as well with plummeted

20:37

I think I said this before but it's a really

20:40

steep drop so if the decline is like this

20:45

that's not plummeting plummeting is a very steep drop

20:50

now another thing we can do is we can add adverbs and adjectives to our are

20:56

nouns and verbs in order to explain the degree of change

21:01

so we just described movement well what else can we add here

21:07

so basis so we can add words like significant there was a significant

21:27

increase meaning an important increase

21:31

it's a quite a big increase we could say there was a a steady increase we can say

21:45

there was a dramatic

21:52

so for example if we had to draw these a dramatic increase would be a very sudden

22:01

increase that's another word sudden we could say a steady increase its not so

22:09

dramatic

22:13

we could say a significant which is more than study less than dramatic maybe

22:20

something like this

22:23

so significant steady side and dramatic

22:27

these are all adjectives so where would I put it here

22:31

there was a we use the word increase which can be a noun

22:45

there was a sudden increase there was a dramatic increase there was a

22:51

significant increase

22:52

we can also use these with the words decrease there was a sudden decrease

22:56

there was a steady decline

22:59

there was a dramatic drop

23:03

although that one drop usually is dramatic so it's better to use with

23:07

decline decrease so increase so something like this will help your mark

23:15

if you're using both adjectives to describe what type of increase along

23:20

with nouns

23:21

similarly we can turn all of these into adverbs significant is an adjective

23:28

if we want to describe it as a verbally Sydney significant that can lead

23:33

steadily dramatically suddenly sales talking about an increase sales

23:44

increased or went up any of those herbs we learned earlier increased

23:52

dramatically

23:55

between 2000 and 2010 sales increased steadily sales increased significantly

24:08

sales increase rapidly these are all different words we can use to help us in

24:15

terms of our I'll score

24:16

so again this lesson has focused mainly on vocabulary so we haven't really

24:23

talked so much about how to get good coherence marks meeting your

24:27

organization so that will come in at a later lesson we will talk about how to

24:32

write a proper introduction body and conclusion for now this is focusing on

24:37

vocabulary and how to get your vocabulary marks the highest you can get

24:42

them

24:42

so again the main thing to remember is you want your vocabulary to be varied

24:48

meaning you don't want to use the same way to get and again you want to have an

24:54

introduction a body a conclusion and also you want to to have variety so

25:01

there was a sudden increase you want to use now sometimes maybe you want to also

25:06

show you can use these words in the verb form again when you do use it in the

25:12

verb form

25:13

remember simple simple past

25:16

so for more information on this i highly recommend visiting us at www.engvid.com

25:22

another great resource if you're planning on doing the IELTS is good luck

25:29

25:34

different types of tasks you will be required to do so until next time take
