    The bar chart illustrates number of airport visitors using three major airports in New York city for six consecutive years that is from 1995 to 2000. Overall, LG airport stood higher than the JFK and newark airports for entire period.

    In 1995, New airport had approximately 115 million of passengers but it increased drastically throughout the period though it never decreased in past six years. In the end of the period the Newark airport travelers number plummeted more than three times when compared with 1995. In same context, LaGuardia airport has slightly increased in the years of 1995 to 1999 from35 millions to 50 million. There was sudden growth in 2000 which raised to approximately 65 million within a span of year. Though there was a gradual increment over a period of six years, Newark airport never raced with other two airports.

    In contrast, John F. Kennedy airport initially rated with a 25 million passengers with slight linear growth it reached 45 million in the year 1997. In 1997, JFK stood 2-3 million more than LG and Newark airports. Then it decreased to around 32 million passengers from the year 1997 to 1999. John F. Kennedy airport raised up to 45 million airport visitors in 2000.

    please provide band score and suggetions what to change

      Six consecutive years that is from 1995 to 2000, remove that is. LG (do not use short form LG) airport stood higher than, is a wrong sentence formation, instead write LaGuardia had the highest numbers of visitors for all the years except 1997 in which John F. Kennedy surpassed it in number of visitors per year. ‘never decreased in past six years’, it should be in the next six years, past means six years before 1995. ‘approximately 65 million within’ its more than 65 million, please depict the numbers carefully from the chart. ‘initially rated with a 25 million passengers’ rated is the wrong word here, its not rating its the absolute number of visitors or passengers. JFK big mistake to use short forms. ‘airport raised up to 45 million’ airport did not raise, the number of passengers raised so be careful while using the verb with the correct subject. Your band score would be 1 out 3 for this task.

    The bar graph reveals the number of visitors who traveled by different airports in New York city within a timespan of six years.

    Overall, the number of visitors at LaGuardia and Newark airports dominated , while the number of visitors at John. F. Kennedy airport ebbed and flowed over the period of six years.

    According to the graph, at John.F.Kennedy airport, the number of tourists increased from almost 25 tourists in 1995 to nearly 47 tourists in 1997. Subdequently, the figure of visitors dived around to 32 tourists in 1999 and a rise of almost 11 tourists had been observed in 2000. Furthermore, at LaGuardia airport, the figure of visitors stood at about 35 visitors in 1995 and then it inclined and reached its zenith approximately 68 tourists in 2000.

    As per the graph, close to 15 visitors traveled by Newark airport in 1995. Moreover, a difference of almost 14 visitors was apparent in the number of visitors at Newark airport in 1996 and in 1997. In addition, the number of visitors who traveled through Newark airport remained stable at approximately 42 visitors in 1998,1999 and 2000.

    • IELTS MASTER says:

      ‘Newark airports dominated’ you cannot say newark dominate because the number for this airport is much smaller than Laguardia. ‘almost 25 tourists’ it is not 25 tourists it is 25 million tourists please read the numbers carefully. This is a huge mistake which you have made throughout the task.

    It is a fact that nowdays, many people migrate to another country for job purpose. While it is believed that it has detrimental effects on children’s development, others advocate that it has positive influence. But I support the latter notion and both views will be discussed in the following section.

    To commence with, migration to overseas paves the way for better education facility. Furthermore, children get opportunity to study in world’s best university which will be useful for them in the future. Sencondly, it opens the door for plenty of job opportunities. Moreover, students get job with handsome salary package after completing education immediately and children can do part- time job.As a result, they make exclusive image in the society and it improves their living standard. To illustrate, many people of Indonesia migrate to Australia as permanent residences and work there due to they desire to give education in the world class university to their offspring.

    However, a certain section of the society believes that, children feel homesick. As they have many friends in their own country with whom they everyday interact and they completly loss the social network when they migrate to another country. In addition, they face difficulty in learning new language. So, they are unable to communicate with all people and peers in school and feel isolation.

    To recapitulate, although children cope difficulty in learning new language, this big change makes bright future of children owing to that they study in high rank university , earn more money and live luxurious lifestyle.

    • IELTS MASTER says:

      ‘completly’ spelling mistake. ‘feel isolation’ isolated not isolation. ‘children cope difficulty’ face not cope difficulty. Your points in the first body paragraph are not very convincing because moving to another country not always ensure good lifestyle and opportunities, you have considered only developed countries in your points but people often migrate to other developing countries as well where the opportunities might be less as compared to their native country for example when people migrate to middle east then it is not necessary their lifestyle will improve.
