It is my second attempt for academic writing task 1. Hopefully I can make improvement.



This line chart provides data of the Outokumpu share price in five years period from 2006 to 2010. In the 2006 the value of Outokumpu share started at 12 Euros. It grew up and hit peak point at 32 Euros in the end of 2006. Unfortunately, in 2007 the value decreased fluctuantly to 20s Euros. The growth of the share happened in the middle of 2008 and reached high point at 30s again. However, it was not stable any longer. The price of Outokumpu dropped significantly in the end of 2008, even it got the poorest point at 7 Euros. In the two years later it started to have a normal growth and remained stable at 10s Euros.

Based on the data, there was an interesting insight that the share price of Outokumpu tends to decrease in the beginning of every year and tends to grow up after the half of the year. However, the year 2008 is exception of this trends.


My second exercise reached 162 words, but it took 24 minutes. It seems that I need more exercise to be able to write my answer faster.

Latihan: IELTS Academic Writing Task 1

I will have IELTS test on the next Saturday, but I am still not good enough with my writing skills. I do not practice more and somehow I need a lot of time just for writing a paragraph. So, I will use this blog to practice my writing ability. I will answer a random IELTS’s Task 1 in 20 minutes. I am supposed to write my essay at least at 150 words. 🙂

The question is taken from :


The bar chart shows the number of travelers who use the three main airports of New York City in period 1995-2000. The blue bar represents number of visitors of John. F. Kennedy Airport. According to this data, John. F Kennedy Airport’s passengers had increased in the period of 1995-1997. But the passengers got declined in 1998 and 1999. The number of passengers reached high rate again in 2000 which was more than 40 millions people. Meanwhile, LaGuardia and Newark Airport had rising number of passengers. The Newark Airport had lowest number of passengers in 1995, then the number got reached over 30 millions in 1997. In the next three years later the airport had constant passengers which was stable in around 40 millions. In 1995 LaGuardia only had 35 millions passengers, but the airport got highest number in 2000 which reached almost 70 millions.

Based on the data, we can analysis the people preference of airport usage. We can examine why are people tend to use the LaGuardia airports. Probably John F. Kennedy Airport needs some improvements and other suggestions.


I needed 27 minutes to write my answer down. It contains 180 word. I know it was not good answer 😦
