 Jul 10, 2019 why the trends? by: Anonymous To show true understanding of what the graph shows, we might also want to add why we think that more people listen to radio in the morning than watch TV (maybe they are getting ready for school/work and can't actually watch anything, so they only listen) and more people watch TV in the evening when they have time to sit down and relax to watch it. Also, the increase in radio listening increases briefly in the afternoon...about the time many people are driving home from work/school, so they listen to radio in their cars.

 Jul 11, 2019 why the trends? by: IELTS buddy No shouldn't shouldn't comment on the reasons why you think something is happening in academic task 1, whether it is a graph, diagram, process or map. It is supposed to be a factual description and you are told to summarise the data and compare it, not to give your opinion on it. Doing so will decrease your score.
