My essay:

The stacked bar chart gives the number of students who selected one of four different second languages to study a decade ago, five years ago, two years ago, and last year. The choices of languages are Italian, Spanish, German and French.

Overall, French was the most popular choice of the four, exceeding the others by a wide margin. In second place was german. The lowest numbers were for those learning Italian five years ago and last year; it was for Spanish in the other two years.

In detail, two years, a decade and two years ago, not only had the same total student counts but also the individual proportions. In particular, about 180 students studied these languages, nearly half (44%) coming from Italian, 80. Almost 3 in ten picked German, or 50 students, compared to one in six for Italian. For the other two years, their totals were also the same, but with higher numbers, 210 students. However, the proportions for each language were very different; more students chose French in the past year than five years ago, going up from roughly 50% to 70%, 100 versus 140 students. All the others became less popular; that total decrease of 40 was equally divided between second-place German, from 60 to 40 students, and the other two, by 10 each. In the previous year, only 10 were Italian learners, and twice that for Spanish.

Thank you very much. I really appreciate your time.
