IELTS Academic Writing Task 1/ Graph Writing - Bar Chart /Column Graph:
You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.
The bar charts below provide information about percentages of students who are proficient in a foreign language in different countries.
Summarise the information by selecting and reporting the main features, and make comparisons where relevant.
You should write at least 150 words.
The bar chart presents the ratio of male and female pupils in six countries who have good commands in a foreign language. It is obvious that more percentages of female learners are proficient in a second language than that of male pupils and the proportion of such fluent students is higher in India and Romania.
As the diagram summarise, the quotient of students versed in a foreign language was the highest in India, approximately 68% female students and 56% male students with the ability to use a second language. Romania has approximately 65% women pupils and just over 40% male students who are expert in a different language. Interestingly, the rate of students with skill in a foreign language is higher among females than that of males in all countries except in Thailand where such male pupils’ ratio is 30%. Vietnam has more ratio of second-language-knowing students than that of China, and Russia. The lowest percentages of such pupils reside in China where only around 20-30% disciples know a second dialect.
