IELTS Task 1 – Writing about Tables

By | December 29, 2013
When writing about a table, it can be difficult to find trends to write about. However, there are always four points you can talk about for any table. They are highest, lowest, similar and different.
Here is a table about the net worth of the top richest actors.

Dina Merril’s net worth is highest at 5 billion dollars.

Julia Roberts has the lowest net worth of the actors listed, with 170 million dollars.
