Hi there. My name is Emma, and in today's video, I am going to talk

0:06

a lot about the IELTS test, specifically writing task one.

0:11

I'm going to teach you about a certain thing

0:14

you might see on the IELTS, and that's a pie chart. I'm going to explain what a pie chart

0:20

is, and ways to talk about pie charts in order to improve your vocabulary mark for the IELTS.

0:28

Many students get really, really confused when they see graphs on the IELTS, and they

0:34

get really confused trying to talk about numbers, specifically. So, in this video, I'm also

0:39

going to talk about: How do we describe numbers when we're looking at pie charts?

0:44

How do we describe percentages? You know, and how can we

0:49

make our vocabulary very varied? Okay?

0:54

So, let's get started.

0:57

The first thing I want to do is talk about: What is a pie chart?

1:01

So, I have here three different types of graphs.

1:04

Three different graphs you might see on the IELTS, in the

1:08

writing section, in the very first part of the writing section. Okay? You might see a

1:14

picture like this, like this, or like this. So, one of these looks like a pie, something

1:21

you eat. Which one do you think looks the most like pie?

1:26

If you said this one, you are correct.

1:30

This is what we are going to be talking about today. We can call it either a "pie chart"

1:35

or a "pie graph". Both are correct. You might also see this one, this one is called

1:42

a line graph; or you might see this, which is called a bar graph.

1:47

So, let me write that on the board. So, "pie chart", "line graph", and "bar graph".

2:03

You might also see a process,

2:06

a diagram, or maybe even a table on the IELTS. But for today, we are only going to be focusing

2:13

on pie charts.

2:16

Okay, so what is a pie chart? A pie chart shows us percentages. Okay? So, if we look

2:26

down here, I have here what I spend my money on. Okay? I want you to imagine each month,

2:34

all the money I make, all my salary, this is what I spend it on.

2:39

I spend some of it on rent, I spend some of it on food,

2:44

I spend some of it on transport or transportation,

2:48

and I spend some of it on fun. Okay? So, on the IELTS, you might have to describe something

2:57

like this. It might be more complicated. Sometimes you might actually have two pie graphs or

3:04

pie charts that you might have to compare and describe, but in this case, let's start

3:09

out a little bit easier.

3:11

So, I want you to imagine you're writing the IELTS, and you've been told to describe this

3:16

pie chart. What are you going to say about it? Okay?

3:21

Well, the very first thing you should do is you should think about: What does it all mean?
