Writing Task 1 Revision – Developing a Good Introduction

June 6, 2018

 

Tip: In the Writing Task 1 section of the IELTS exam, the only job needed to develop a good introduction is to rephrase the given topic sentence. Rephrasing suggests that you change the structure of the topic sentence without changing its main meaning.

3. Topic sentence: The bar charts compare the number of male and female international students at three private schools in California in 2009.

 

Your introduction: The bar charts give information about population of the international student community by gender at three private schools in California in 2009.
