Police 40
Nurse 38

Underground Driver 36
Sample Answer

The bar graph shows the salaries of various professions when they started, compared with their salaries after three years. The adjoining table also contains data for the average working hours for each profession per week.

It can be deciphered that the salaries after three years have increased for each profession. However, the underground train driver got the maximum increment of 2500 Pounds, and the policeman got the least increment of 600 Pounds. The nurse got the least salary amounting to only approximate 15,700 Pounds, whereas the underground train driver got just under 50,000 Pounds which was the highest amount of salary in comparison. On the other hand, the teacher and the policeman get slightly more than 23,000 Pounds and 33,000 Pounds respectively.

Comparing this data to the working hours per week, it is found that the underground train driver is being paid the most amount of money per hour and nurse being paid the least. In contrast, the teacher and firefighter have 55 working hours which are the highest. Moreover, the nurse and the underground train driver have 38 and 36 working hours respectively, which are the lowest.

To sum up, even after three years and a substantial raise of salary for each profession, the trend does not change and the tube driver was still topping the chart and the nurse on the last position.

leisure-time Best IELTS Band 7 coaching in dehradun
Sample answer

Leisure activities are interesting pursuits that we all do during our time off from work or studies. There is a variety of such activities ranging from reading to arts and crafts that one may take up as a hobby or an extracurricular activity. I have had many personal favorites over the years, but my most favorite leisure activity is driving. I really like to drive my car whenever I have some time to myself. I have done a lot of solo driving trips to many different places. While some are near to my place, some are far away as well.

Driving cars is a passion for me, and I learned driving as soon as I turned 18. Since then I have spent a huge part of my relaxing time behind the wheel. I really enjoy the feeling of being on the open roads, maneuvering a huge machine while listening to my favorite songs. It is a very beneficial activity as it allows me to explore and travel to new places in a comfortable and safe manner. I have spent many weekends camping out in remote villages and dense forests, learning new things and meeting different kinds of people. The best part about driving as per me is the thrill of the empowering feeling that driving a car gives me.

I purchased my own car last year and now spend my weekends going to new places and driving the car around with friends or alone. It has almost become a routine activity and I am very fond of it.

Sample Answer

Art and craft are highly engaging and entertaining activities, and many people work on different arts and crafts during their leisure time. I also like doing art and craftwork such as pottery, origami, and painting. I am more involved with craft work, especially with toys and trinkets, and I have made a lot of small toys for toddlers.

I have a young friend in my neighborhood who plays cricket with me. While we were speaking one day, he told me about his fondness for cars. He also told me that almost all of his toys were cars, and he played a lot with them as well. At that moment, an idea struck me. I came back to my home and quickly took out a small battery operated motor that was lying around unused. My idea was to use that motor to make a homemade toy car and gift it to him. I went around the house in search of materials such as cardboard, nuts, bolts, bottle caps, wires, and batteries. After collecting all the items, I assembled the car and worked on it until I was satisfied with the result.

It took me two days to complete the toy car, fortunately in time for his birthday on the weekend. Thinking that it would be a sensible gift, I had painted it and gift wrapped it as well. On his birthday, I gave him the car as a gift, and he liked it a lot. He said that the gift meant a lot to him. Due to this, I felt elated and proud of my skill and my idea.

Vacation Best IELTS Band 7 Coaching in Dehradun
Sample answer

Plans are a very promising phenomenon that occurs regularly in our lives. But they change due to different factors. Many a time I have intended a lot of things with a lot of ambitions but had to cancel or change due to various reasons.

One such incident took place when I had planned a motorcycling trip to a hill station nestled deep in the crevices of the Himalayan Mountains, along with a few friends. On a warm summer day we were sitting at a cafe near my place, and while we enjoyed our drinks, when I suddenly came up with an idea to go to a beautiful location in the hills near Himachal Pradesh on our motorcycles. We all discussed the plan and after a lot of brainstorming, we finalized our visit in the upcoming month of May, during our vacations. I was very excited and took permission from my family as well. After their agreement, I started preparing for the expedition and confirming the trip to the last detail. Sadly, sometimes such things happen due to which our pre-planning goes for a toss. Two days before we had to leave, my friend came to me and told me about a devastating earthquake that happened in the area we had decided to visit.

As a result, I was despaired and had almost reached the point of tears. With a heavy heart, I then called up all my friends and told them about the last minute change and the cancellation of the trip. Even after the change of plan, I had decided to visit the place during the autumn and promised myself that I will propose this trip again.
