The graph below shows the consumption of 3 spreads from 1981 to 2007.

Sample Answer

The line graph illustrates the amount of three kinds of spreads (margarine, low fat and reduced spreads and butter) which were consumed over 26 years from 1981 to 2007. Units are measured in grams.

Overall, the consumption of margarine and butter decreased over the period given, while for low fat and reduced spreads, it rose.  At the start of the period, butter was the most popular spread, which was replaced by margarine from 1991 to 2001, and following that low fat and reduced spreads became the most widely used spread in the final years.

With regards to the amount of butter used, it began at around 140 grams and then peaked at 160 grams in 1986 before falling dramatically to about 50 grams in the last year. Likewise, approximately 90 grams of margarine was eaten in the first year after which the figure fluctuated slightly and dropped to a low of 40 grams in 2007.

On the other hand, the consumption of low fats and reduced spreads only started in 1996 at about 10 grams. This figure, which reached a high of just over 80 grams 5 years later, fell slightly in the final years to approximately 70 grams in 2007.

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.


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.
