IELTS academic writing task 1
The line graph provides information about the amount of money which was earned monthly by four restaurants in a city in 2010.
Overall, what stands out from the graph is that there were considerable upwards trends in the income of Delicacy, Evening paradise and Grand Fiesta, while the earnings of Spicy Fortune witnessed a considerable fall over the year. Another interesting point is that Spicy Fortune was the most popular restaurant in January, but in December, Evening Paradise earned more money than the others.
Looking at the details, in January 2010, Spicy Fortune was the biggest earner with a monthly income of almost $160,000. In the following months, its earnings first fluctuated and then declined steadily before ending at nearly $50,000 in December.
In contrast, the monthly incomes of other three restaurants went up by varying degrees. There was a rise in Delicacy’s earnings over the first ten months, followed by a sudden increase to $120,000 in December. Grand Fiesta and Evening Paradise started with significantly different figures in January, about $100,000 and $50,000, respectively. The former experienced a steady fall until June, but after that, income rose significantly to just under $140,000 in December. Likewise, the trend for Evening Paradise was upward. From January to July, earnings doubled from about $50,000 to nearly $100,000 and ended the year with the highest income of around $190,000.
Here is latest cue card question. IELTS Band9 level answer
Describe a mistake you made
what the mistake was
when you made it
why you made it
And explain how it affected you.
To err is human. Today, I’m going to talk about a mistake I made when I was in 6th class.
One day my sister was quite unwell. She was suffering from fever. There was only one doctor in my village and there were no mobile phones at that time. The only way to call the doctor was to send someone to fetch him. Unfortunately, my father had gone somewhere. My mother asked me to go to the doctor. Since it was quite cold and dark outside, I told her that I would fetch the doctor tomorrow.
In the night my sister’s condition deteriorated, her fever was touching the mark of 104-105 degree Fahrenheit. She started murmuring. That was the most difficult time for me and my mummy. I was cursing myself. If I had gone to the doctor on time, my sister would not have been in this situation.
I made this mistake without realizing that I was making a mistake. I was a child and I had no idea about how high fever can be life threatening for someone.
This incident affected me a lot. With God’s grace and my mother’s efforts, my sister survived. But, her complete recovery took a long time. Now, I am much more careful about health and I never ignore any kind of health problems.
Describe a company/organisation you would like to join You should say:
the name of the company/organization
where it is located
how you know about this company
And explain why you would like to work in this company/organisation.
Level IELTS Band9 There are numerous national and international companies in my country. Today, I’m going to talk about an organization I would like to be a part of. The name of the organization is the Indian Space Research Organization, commonly known as the ISRO. It is the space agency of the government of India headquartered in Bangalore, Karnataka. It was founded by Dr. Vikram Sarabhai in 1969. The ISRO has many centers which are located in different regions of India. I have a keen interest in celestial objects like stars, galaxies and black holes. My father’s close friend is a scientist in the ISRO. I have learnt a lot about the projects of this organization from him. In addition, I had the opportunity to visit the ISRO Satellite Center on a school trip. Over the last 47 years, the ISRO has emerged as one of the six largest space agencies in the world. It develops and delivers services in various fields. Communication, weather forecast, disaster management tools, geographic information systems, navigation, telemedicine and distant education satellites are some of them. Its mission of using space research for the development of the nation has always inspired me to become a scientist.
Describe a person who has done a lot to help people You should say:
who this person is/was
where this person lives/lived
what he/she has done to help people
And explain how you know about this person.
(Level Band9) Today I’m going to talk about a generous person who is well-known for his sincere efforts to help people from all walks of life. He is my neighbor Dr. Mehra, a physician. I have known him since I moved to Dehradun in 2000.
Dr. Mehra is in his 50s and he runs a clinic in the city center. Notably, he is an alumnus of the King George Medical Collge, Lucknow. Apart from treating patients in his clinic, he regularly organizes health camps in remote villages of Uttarakhand. His team distributes free medicines to patients and gives valuable advice to people about how to lead a disease free life.
This is a great help for village dwellers as medical facilities in these places are very poor. He has changed the lives of thousands of villagers in Uttarakhand. His determination to improve the public health in inaccessible regions is praiseworthy.
In fact, he is a role model for me. I met Dr. Mehra in 2000. Since we are neighbors, we know about each other’s work. I often accompany him as a volunteer in his health camps. Of course, if I am ill, he is the first person I call.
