I get lots of students in my office with assignments which include writing about tables and charts. Describing graphs and charts can be difficult and that’s why I have got a link to a really good website to help you write about these things. The phrases that you often need are things like: Since 2007 the rate of inflation has increased.. and many students have difficulty with these verb forms and the particular vocabulary that you can use to describe charts, graphs and tables. These writing activities are often included in IELTS examinations so this link will be particularly useful for students preparing to take their IELTS writing paper. The link comes from Leeds University Langauge Centre and you can follow it here.
