The presented graphs show number of travellers to and from the UK in 2 decades from 1979 until 1999, and 5 most popular countries that British people visited, namely: Turkey, Greece, USA, Spain and France in 1999.
As is provided in the first graph, proportion of people who visited from England was almost equivalent with British people who tripped to other countries which were 10 and 12 million respectively initially in 1979. After that both of those groups swelled up momentously but expansion of British travellers had more intensity than foreign people’s trend with gentle slope until 1986. In other scenario after that year, number of UK inhabitants who went to other countries rocketed noticeably and met 55 million as peak in 1999 and other procedure amount increased and received 28 million in1999 as summit. France had the most privilege than others with 11 million and Turkey was disfavor in destiny for British person with 2.5 million visitors.

In conclusion gap between number of visits aboard by UK residences and visits to the UK by overseas residents was very much specially after 1984. In other hand French men and women had the most volume of travel to UK.

In writing task 1 we should not write conclusion. It reduces our score. Your score I think is 5.5 or 6.
