Hi,

I really need a band 7. Can you please tell me if its good enough for me to sit the exam. I will really appreciate your answer :)

The table statistically illustrates the proportion of people's expenses for various items in different countries of Europe i.e Ireland, Spain, Sweden and Turkey in the year 2002. It can be clearly seen that the national consumer expenditure on food items and education is highest in Turkey and lowest in Sweden and Spain respectively.

All of these countries prefer spending most of their income on edibles, drinks and on smoking. A moderate amount is spent on clothing and footwear articles while an even lesser amount is spent on recreational activities and education.

Food, drinks and tobacco consumption is 32.14% in Turkey which is twice the amount spent by Italy (16.36%), and is followed by Ireland with a 28.91% expenditure. Spain and Sweden are relatively close to Italy with 18.80% and 15.77% respectively.

Italy's consumer expenditure on clothing is 9% while it is quite less in the other countries.

Recreational activities and education are comparatively considered important in Italy (4.35%) with the trend decreasing to almost 2% in Spain.

After analyzing these facts, it can be concluded that people of Turkey are most concerned about their health and education while Italy invests most on fashion industry.

Consumer Spending on Different Items
by: Nilam

I guess the structure of the report needs improvement. it should be well organised perhaps one para for each category including comparison.

i also believe that this task does not require our opinion, although it is definitely good to have conclusion.

however, you have include most of the points and presented good comparison.

Don't mind me for the comments but this is what i learned and achieved ielts 7 in writing.

Please I'm a beginner range me.

The table statistically illustrates the proportion of consumer spending on different items in five countries (Ireland, Italy, Spain, Sweden and Turkey) in the year 2002. All these countries prefer spending on food/drinks/tobacco.

Almost the five countries, Turkey spends on food/drinks/tobacco and leisure/education the highest with 32.14% and 4.35% respectively.
Italy's spending on clothing/footwear is the highest with 9.00% as compare to Sweden which is the least with 5.40%.

After analyzing these facts, it can be concluded that people in Turkey are more concerned with their health, education and leisure while Italians invest more in fashion designing.
