This is another example of an IELTS task 1 process.
This is a fairly simple example so it is good if you are new to processes. In the actual test it is likely to be a bit more difficult.
The important things to remember when you write about a process are:
You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.
The illustrations show how chocolate is produced.
Summarise the information by selecting and reporting the main features and make comparisons where relevant.
Write at least 150 words.
The diagram explains the process for the making of chocolate. There are a total of ten stages in the process, beginning with the growing of the pods on the cacao trees and culminating in the production of the chocolate.
To begin, the cocoa comes from the cacao tree, which is grown in the South American and African continents and the country of Indonesia. Once the pods are ripe and red, they are harvested and the white cocoa beans are removed. Following a period of fermentation, they are then laid out on a large tray so they can dry under the sun.
Next, they are placed into large sacks and delivered to the factory. They are then roasted at a temperature of 350 degrees, after which the beans are crushed and separated from their outer shell. In the final stage, this inner part that is left is pressed and the chocolate is produced.
