The chart below gives information about global sales of games software, CDs and DVD or video.
Write a report for a university lecturer describing the information.
- You should write at least 150 words.
You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.


The given bar chart illustrates the changes in the global sales of game software, DVD/Video and CDs between the three years of 2000 to 2003.

There was a gradual slight drop in the sales of CDs during this three years period. In 2000, it was 35 billion dollars, reached to 31billion dollars in 2003. In case of games software, there was a slight continuous increase in the sales. In 2000, it was 12 billion dollars, which touched to 19 billion dollars in 2003, an increase of 7 billion dollars after three years. In the same period, the sales of CDs showed a significant increase without any drop. In 2000, it was 18 billion dollars reached at the peak of just above 30 billion dollars in 2003.

The sale of CDs was only one third of the sale of CDs in 2003, gained its popularity and became half of the sale of the CDs in 2003. The sale of the DVD/Video in 2000 was below half of the sale of the CDs in 2000, reached almost equal sale in 2003. There was a notable difference in the sale of these three items in 2001 and 2003.

In short, the popularity of the CDs is slowly decreased, while the DVD/Video increased remarkably in the whole world.

Therehad been a gradual slight drop in the sales of CDs during this three years period.

Another way of presenting this idea;
A gradual decline in the sales of CDs can be observed during this period with sales dropping by 4 bn from 2000 to 2003.

I suggest you to give an overall picture in the first para and then move into details in the proceeding paras. Describe the general trends that you observe at your first glance in the first para;

As per the graph illustration, it can be observed that sales of CDs dominate the market in these three categories during the period under review, although the growth rate of CD sales had been maintained at a very marginal level. DVD/Video sales record the highest sales growth while the Games software too show a significant growth in sales during this period.

Hey Tessy.... You provided me with a good insight as to how to tackle this task. Actually I have not taken IELTS, but TOEFL and I was just advising you on my own. With your question above, it sparked me that I need to get you the right info and if I've been giving you of any kind of misleading advice, I'm really sorry about that. (I still feel I have been on the right track as per the following guideline I'm going to quote to you in a while) In fact my suggestions reflected how I personally tackeled my Stat interpretations ....

However, I found this guideline for you by googling;
ieltsbuddy/ielts-writing-task-1.html
Hope you can access the page.
