一、如何着手possibleways to start
万事开头难，雅思写作Task 1也是一样，那么考生应从何处着手呢?In IELTS writingmodule, the most complicated part is writing the introduction. If you have a good technique for this, then the rest ofthe task is easy.
观察图表后的直观感受Refer to the visual directly
·题目中会有图表基本信息的说明~ theinstructions in the IELTS test will normally give you this information.比如“This graph shows the population ofCanada in from 1867 up to 2007.”
·但是考生不能直接把原画抄下来，而是要paraphrase~If you copy directly from the paper you are wasting time, since the examiner cannot assess your English from a copied sentence.
·通过paraphrase同义转换，再加上图表显示的大致趋势/走向，就可以简短概括图表内容~比如“There was a sharp increase in thepopulation of Canada from 1867 up to 2007.” Thisway is perfectly acceptable, and shows that you are able to recognize the main concept or message that the graph ortable shows.
·用一句/两句话概括出图表内容并不简单，Super给出以下例句供考生参考~In order to use this method, it is necessary to use a few fixedexpressions, which refer to the text itself, like those below.
• Therewas a substantial increase in the value of stocks on March 15th.(xxx的价值显著增加)
• House prices rose dramatically in July.(xxx的价格急剧上升)
• The number of tourists visiting New York fellsharply in October.(xxx的数量急剧减少)
• The percentage of students walking to school continuedto rise gradually over the ten year period from 2000-2010.(xxx的比例在某期间内持续增加)
•There was a sharp increase in employee turnover after the strike.(xxx大幅增加)
• Interest in environmentalissues has risen steadily over the last 10years.(在某期间，xxx稳步上升)
三、一些需要注意的表达MOREUSEFUL WORDS AND PHRASES
通常在数字后面the word percentcomes after a number
【Examples】More than 25% of the students are from Brazil./More than 25 percent of the students come from Brazil.
通常在large/high等形容词后面 The word percentage comes after words likethe,a, this and that. Often, it is preceded by an adjective.
【Examples】A small percentage of residents have lived in the building for more than 20 years.
The percentage of students who live on campus has fallen sharply since the fire.
3.近似值、百分比、分数Approximations, Percentages and Fractions
In many of the IELTS writingtask 1 questions, we will have to deal with percentages. This is a good opportunity to express these percentages in adifferent way and boost our score.考生要熟悉百分数、分数、比例如何表达~A way of varying this language is to express them as fractions or proportions.
用不同的方式表示“比例”可以为你的写作加分~Remember that we should vary our language as much as possible in order to score high inthe ‘lexical resource’ part of the test. Itis also fine to use approximations.
【Examples】‘49%’ can be expressed as ‘nearly a half’.
