IELTS Table - Land Covered by Forest

by Tam

Hello again,

I also have Task 1 essay. Please review it for me, please.

Thank you.

The table illustrates the forest rates as percentages in four countries: Australia, New Zealand. Brazil and Chile. The data that were gathered from 1990 to 2005 and the additional estimated figures for 2015 show the true worth information.

Overall, it is clear to identify that Brazil’s proportion of the forest was firmly at the zenith, regardless of the remarkable augmentation. Besides, the other negligible variations in the remaining countries were considered as the second trend that deserved to be investigated.

In details, Brazil’s forest rate was 62.2% and 57.2% in 1990 and 2005 respectively, and it will be 53.5% in 2015 as the significant augmentation. On the other hand, New Zealand’s forest rate increased steady from 28.8% to 31.0% in 1990 and 2005 respectively, and it will be 32.3% as prognostication. This consolidated the runner-up for this country. Finally, only when Chile’s forest proportion was estimated to reach 22.0% after the occurring advent was the nadir set for Australia with 20.0% of forest in 2015 as the prognostication.

Your vocabulary is impressive. However, there are some amendments that you need to review.

1. "The data that were gathered from 1990 to 2005 and the additional estimated figures for 2015 show the true worth information"
=> true worth information is not correct. You can change it to "worthy" information. Stick to the standard English structure.

2. "Brazil’s proportion of the forest was firmly at the zenith"
=> "the forest" -> "forest coverage"
=> Zenith: I saw some people use this and the word "peak". These words mean, in this case, the highest point of the PROCESS, like a peak of a line in line graph, not the 1st place in the comparison. You can change it to "at the first place", "at the highest place"

3. regardless of the remarkable augmentation
=> I see the number of Brazil decreased, so "augmentation" is not correct.

4. as the second trend
=> I see forest coverage in 2 countries increased, while the other 2 decrease. These "variations" of yours should be more specific and accurate.

5. forest rate is correct, but you might want to use other words in order not to overuse one word. Use "forest coverage".

6. as the significant augmentation
=> Like I mentioned above, it decreased, so "augmentation" is not correct.

7. increased steady => steadily.

8. Nadir. Same with peak and zenith

The table illustrates the land percentage that is covered by forest in four countries namely Australia, New Zealand, Brazil and Chile between 1990 and 2005. In addition, the table shows the projected percentage of the forest land in 2025. Overall, both Australia and Brazil have decreased percentage during the years, while New Zealand and Chile have increased percentages.

In 1990, Brazil had the highest percentage of forest land among the four countries at 62.2%. New Zealand had the second percentage at 28.8%, whereas Australia and Chile had only 21.9% and 20.4% respectively. After 15 years, the percentages had risen up only for New Zealand and Chile, with 3% for New Zealand and 1.5% for Chile. It is also projected that after 25 years, both countries will still increase their forest lands to 32.3% in the former and 22% in the latter country.

In contrast, Australia and Brazil had shown downward percentage trends for 15 years. From 21.3% in Australia and 62.2% in Brazil in the year 1990, it decreased to 21.3% and 57.2% respectively in 2005. The percentages are estimated to fall further to 20% in Australia and 53.5% in Brazil by 2025.
