Describing graphs

Yes, I know. Graphs and charts are tough and boring, but we’ve already dealt with the worst part of it all. All you have to do now is revise what we’ve done and do some practice.
I leave a video here which I think you might find useful, followed by a listening exercise. And finally the writing exercise I’ve copied from your textbook.

Listening exercise about misleading graphs  


Writing/Written mediation 

And finally you have to analyse the line graph below and do ONE of these tasks:

  • writing: write a survey report (around 200 words)   


  • written mediation: include the analysis in an email to a friend in Nepal so that he can use it in his research for his PhD (no more than 110 words)

Crimes and offences

Watch the video to learn some vocabulary about crime and criminals.

Do the exercise below: read the description, think about the name of the crime and turn the card round to see whether you were right in your guesses.

Think of a work of art you like, find peculiar, disgusting or amazing. Tell the story behind it and explain why you have chosen it.
