Do the preparation task first. Then read the text and tips and do the exercises.
- Before writing about the detailed figures, give an overview of what the graphs or charts represent.
- Say precisely what the data refers to. There is a difference between, for example, a user spending 57% of their time on games and a user spending 57% of their tablet time on games. (You can write % or per cent, but be consistent.)
- You don't need to describe all the information in the diagrams. Select the most important things.
- Don't repeat vocabulary. Use different words and phrases with the same or similar meanings, e.g. playing games = gaming.
- Use similarly, in the same way or also to show similarities.
- Use however, in contrast, but, while or instead to show differences.
