IELTS Line Graph

IELTS Academic writing task 1 - Line Graph

A line graph (also known as line chart) is a graphical presentation of data that changes over time. It uses line segments to connect data points and shows changes in data. The X and Y axis are used to denote the changes in the data. Within a line graph, there are points which are connected to show the changes in value. While the title of the line graph shows the general overview of the data, the X-axis presents the occurrences and categories being compared and finally, the Y-axis shows the scale, which is a set of number that presents. The scale/number in Y-axis is organised in an equal interval to present the data more visually.   

Line graphs are quite versatile and it is an extensively used family of graphs. Line graphs are quite common in the Academic IELTS test. If you are planning to take the IELTS test, you must understand how to write a report or a summary based on a given line graph. A line graph can contain one of the multiple lines to show changes over time and comparison among different items. A single line is comparatively easier to describe and with the increase of the line number, it can become quite complex sometimes.

IELTS Line Graph Examples
If your Academic Writing Task 1 contains a line graph, you will need to write a summary/ report of minimum 150 words based on that graph within 20 minutes.
