IELTS Writing Task 1: describe a map

 According to some students, 'map' questions have been popular in recent IELTS exams. There are 2 types of map:

  1. A map that shows a comparison (see this lesson)
  2. A map that shows development of an area.

For a good example of the second type of map, have a look at this question from Cambridge IELTS book 1 (go down to page 91), or look at the same map here.

To help you think about how to describe the map, answer these questions:

  1. How could you paraphrase "the map shows the development of the village"?
  2. How many periods of development are shown, and which period saw the most development?
  3. What is the relationship between transport and the growth of the village?
  4. How could you group the information in order to write two 'specific details' paragraphs?
I'll give you my answers to these questions tomorrow, and I'll write the full essay for next week.
