After learning about patterns and techniques for IELTS Writing Task 1, this issue will provide you about Writing IELTS Task 2 which is about writing an essay (minimum 250 words) in 40 minutes. You will be given an essay topic such as society, travelling, culture and sport and you have to write an opinion about that topic.
Also, be ready for the hard cases. You may be given three sets of bar charts or a bar chart with a pie chart. Make sure to mention the relationship between the charts. Here is my suggestion.

Hopefully, you’ll see the repetitive pattern that can be a vital point in your development.
In report essay, there are five general points that should be noted. No matter what type of graphic data is given.
(1) What the graphic is representing, which will be given in the task paper. What you have to do is to paraphrase it.
(2) Continue with general picture of the data including distinctive features of the graphic by looking for highest-lowest, largest-smallest, best-worst, longest-shortest, tallest-shortest, or deepest-highest.
(3) Make comparison and suggest the trend of the data.
(4) End with a conclusion idea.
Task Two is report essay, which has nothing to do with your opinion (or anyone’s opinion, for that matter). Your job is to interpret a graphic data into a written text. Unlike Task Two where you will be given questions, this task has no guideline questions. Therefore, the most important thing is to select the right angles to write about, using around 150-170 words. There are four criteria to be concerned just like Task One but the detail of assessment is different. Please see this link.
