IELTS Academic Task 1: How to Describe a Pie Chart

To describe a pie chart for Academic Task 1, learn and use the language for portions as well as the language for comparisons. Showing a range of vocabulary will help you to pick up points for lexical resource. If there is a pie chart and a table that do not correspond, you should write one paragraph about the pie chart, and one paragraph about the table. Avoid stating opinions, check the time frame on the pie chart and use appropriate tense, use passive constructions for extra points, focus on getting the appropriate data from the graph into your writing, and use a four-paragraph model. Consider a practical process you can use for writing your Academic Task 1 pie chart: (1) prepare by looking for the biggest and smallest sections and analyse the time, dates, tenses, and measurements; (2) organize the information into two paragraphs; and (3) write one or two summary sentences showing the major overall trends from the graph.
