Task 1 - How to Write an Introduction




One sentence is enough for an introduction. Practice doing this over and over with different tasks and then sit down and see how you did. The more you practice the better you will get.

Do not simply copy the words in the question – make sure you use synonyms and paraphrase where you can:


o   Illustrates/presents/gives/displays/shows


o   Data/information/statistics/


o   Chart/graph/digram/table/illustration


Remember, if you copy the question the words will be deducted from the word count.


Try using some of the following sentences to help you with your introduction:


o   The graph shows/illustrates the trends in… between… and


o   The graph gives/provides/reveals/presents information about (the differences/changes)


o   The graph/diagram shows/illustrates how the population has changed
