I so appreciate your help and kindness.

The line graphs show changes in the amount of coffee that Brazil, Colombia, and Costa Rica exported from 2002 to 2012.

It is clear that while Costa Rica was the largest coffee exporter at the beginning of the period, it was Brazil that exported the most from 2003. Colombia, on the other hand, maintained its position throughout the period.
In 2002, the amounts of coffee exported from Brazil and Costa Rica were around 2.4 to 3 times higher, at about 12 million tonnes and 15 million tonnes respectively, compared to only 5 million tonnes from Colombia. Costa Rica exported equally to Colombia in 2005, after a decline from the same amount as Brazil in 2003. The period between 2003 and 2006 also showed an upward trend in the exported amount of coffee from Brazil and Colombia.
The amounts of Colombia and Costa Rica crossed again at the end of 2006 with around 9 million tonnes, while the figure for Brazil continued to increase and reached 20 million tonnes. In 2008, Colombia hit a low of under 2.5 million tonnes, while Brazil and Costa Rica kept raising their amounts. At the end of the period, due to the increasing amounts of all three countries, the total amount was approximately 60 million tonnes, about 300% of the total in 2002.

You are on the right track, but need to make some changes in the essay structure, phrasing and vocabulary.

Task 1 is best structured as three paragraphs, as I have explained to you before.

Make sure your information is correct; otherwise, points will be deducted from your score.


The line graphs (wrong form. There is only one graph. The graph has three curves. ) show changes in the amount of coffee that Brazil, Colombia, and Costa Rica exported from 2002 to 2012. (The amounts are plotted, not the changes in the amounts. )

It is clear that (Unnecessary filler words. They add no information for the reader.) While Costa Rica was the largest coffee exporter at the beginning of the period, it was Brazil that exported the most after from 2003. Colombia, on the other hand, maintained its position throughout the period.
(That is incorrect. Columbia was in second place 2004-7, and in third place the rest of the time.) In 2002, the amounts of coffee exported from Brazil and Costa Rica were around 2.4 to 3 times higher than Columbia's, (Higher than what? This is not clear. You need to move the phrase from the end of the sentence.) at about 12 million tonnes and 15 million tonnes (Incorrect. Tonnes are not the units of measure on this graph. A million kilograms is a thousand tonnes, so the values here are 12 thousand and 15 thousand tonnes. It is best not to convert the units of measure though, because the likelihood of your making a mistake is very high..) respectively, compared to only 5 million tonnes from Colombia. Costa Rica's exports equalled ed equally to Colombia's in 2005, after a decline from the same amount as Brazil in 2003, when it was equal to Brazil's . The period between 2003 and 2006 also showed an upward trend in the exported amount of coffee from Brazil and Colombia.

The second paragraph should report 2-3 main features. You should emphasize the "big picture" rather than going into specific details. Your essay is not clearly abiding with the instructions, which will cost you points.

First and foremost, I really appreciate your help. Thanks to your feedback, it's getting easier for me to write.

Anyway, I want to ask how do I express the idea of Colombia stayed in 3rd place at the beginning and end of the period?

Also, I don't get this part, "At the end of the period, due to the increasing amounts of all three countries", did you intend to cross over the "three countries" too?

Yes.

NgTh. HgDAnyway, I want to ask how do I express the idea of Colombia stayed in 3rd place at the beginning and end of the period?

Colombia was solidly in third place at both the beginning and end of the period although there were a few years where it surpassed Costa Rica and rose to second place.

Colombia was in third place by a substantial margin at the start and conclusion of the period but there were a few years when it overtook Costa Rica to gain second place.

At the start and end of the time span, Colombia's exports were much lower than the other two countries; however it managed to outperform Costa Rica for a short time in the middle.

Amazing! I find your suggestion so interesting, also they inspire me to try harder to improve my skills.

Thanks so much!
