The graph below shows the percentage of people going to cinemas in one European country on different days. Summarize the information by selecting and reporting the main features and make comparisons where relevant. You should write at least 150 words

The bar chart shows the proportion of individuals living in a European nation go to movie theatres on dissimilar days of the week, in 2003, 2005 and 2007.

Overall, it can be easily seen from the graph that people had a tendency to watch films mostly on weekends. In addition, Saturday was the most favoured day for movie watchers, while the participant rate of movie goers on Monday was the lowest.

From Monday to Thursday, less than a fifth of the population in 3 different years went to the cinema for the movie, however, Tuesday’s percentage was remarkably the highest of the other 3 days when reaching at 20% in 2003, 17% in 2005 and nearly 19% in the last year. Interestingly, the number of movie watchers on Wednesday decreased roughly from 16% in the first year to the lowest at about 9% in 2007.

As for the remaining three days, based on the analysis of inhabitants’ percentage, on Saturday, there were 40% people going to the cinema in 2003, turning to the next two year, this figure rose up when reaching the peak of 40% and finally decreased by 3% in the year of 2007. Meanwhile, Friday seemed to stably stand at the exactly same percentage – only 30%. During the given period, Sunday showed that its data began at 30% in the first year, increasing to 34% then dropped to 32%.

You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.

A lot of your writing is awkward.


Be direct. Avoid "seem" or "tendency" when you see the information with your own eyes. Just write what exists.

Do not be so repetitious. The reader knows the subject from the first paragraph.

Write one paragraph for the details. Focus on combining categories where possible. Do not write about every detail. The instructions are: Summarize the information by selecting and reporting the main features and make comparisons where relevant. The instructions are not: Write about everything on this graph.

Vocabulary Words For Task 1: Reference Post

The grouped bar chart compares the percentage of people in a European nation who went to see a movie by day of the week in 2003, 2005 and 2007.

Overall, these people attended far more often on weekend days, and Saturday was the most popular. The general pattern was the same for all three years.

In detail, the average for Monday-Thursday was about 15% and it was more than twice that for Friday-Sunday, about 32%. The highest value was for Saturdays, which was 45% in 2005, and slightly less, 40% and 43% in 2003 and 2007. Mondays and Wednesdays were the least popular, with an average of about 12%. In fact, the lowest value is for Wednesdays in 2007, at 8%. Tuesday and Thursday were similar, with percentages in the range of 13 to 20%. Fridays were interesting in that the value was exactly the same for all three years, 30%. Compared to Fridays, movie attendance was marginally higher on Sundays; it was equal in 2003, and 3-5% higher in the other two years.

Thank you so much for all of your correction and your sample. I think I have to read and learn much more and more to improve my writing.
