Hi there. My name is Emma, and in today's video, I am going to talk a lot about the IELTS test, specifically writing task one.
I'm going to teach you about a certain thing you might see on the IELTS, and that's a pie chart.
I'm going to explain what a pie chart is, and ways to talk about pie charts in order to improve your vocabulary mark for the IELTS.
Many students get really, really confused when they see graphs on the IELTS, and they get really confused trying to talk about numbers, specifically.
So, in this video, I'm also going to talk about how do we describe numbers when we're looking at pie charts.
How do we describe percentages? You know, and how can we make our vocabulary very varied? Okay?
So, let's get started.
The first thing I want to do is talk about: What is a pie chart?
So, I have here three different types of graphs.
Three different graphs you might see on the IELTS, in the writing section, in the very first part of the writing section. Okay?
You might see a picture like this, like this, or like this.
So, one of these looks like a pie, something you eat, which one do you think looks the most like pie?
If you said this one, you are correct.
This is what we are going to be talking about today.
We can call it either a "pie chart" or a "pie graph", both are correct.
You might also see this one, this is called a line graph; or you might see this, which is called a bar graph.
So, let me write that on the board, so, "pie chart", "line graph", and "bar graph".
我把它们的名字写到黑板上，"pie chart"（饼状图），"line graph"（线形图）和"bar graph"（柱状图）。
