说明： 雅思小作文常考题型主要包括了 Bar Chart(柱状图)， Chart Pie （饼图） Line Chart/Graph ， （曲线图） ，Table（表格） ，虽然在 2006 年至今考了两次 Process（流程图） ，但由于这种题 型一般每年最多考四次，考生只要把握常靠的三个题目即可，不必做过多的准备。至于 introduction 的题型在 2003 年 9 月虽然曾经偷袭三次，但由于此题型太过“专业” ，根本就 不必重点复习。 “2006 年出现次数”也核算了有混合题型的图表的出现次数。 四种题型各有各的侧重点： 饼图是所有图表题中最好写的一种， 唯一值得注意的地方在于如何丰富百分比的 表达和“占”的表达。不要一直用数字加百分比的格式，如 25%，这种文章很 难拿到高分。特定的数字可以采取多样性的表达，如 25%=a quarter of, 50%=half of, >50%=a/the majority of，具体题型的表达请参见 Pie Chart 的部分。 柱状图中“比较” （找出 similarity）和“对比”(找出 difference)是写作的关键， 也就是说需要横向总结所有柱状图表的共性特征， 也要分别描写各个柱子的个性 特征。初学者认为其较好写，因为分类较简单，但其实柱状图不像曲线图那样彻 底的动起来，也不像饼图那样彻底的静下来，属于“动” “静”不结合，要取得 高分并不容易。 曲线图初学者感到很难， 关键是不能把握曲线的走向和趋势。 要拿到曲线图的高 分， 必须学会 general classification,即在第二段的开头部分对整个曲线进行一个阶 段式的总分类（详见下篇曲线图总分类三种方法） ，使写作层次清晰，同时也方 便考官阅卷。 接下来在分类描述每个阶段的 specific trend,同时导入数据作为你分 类的依据。 考官最痛恨那些不做任何说明就机械性的导入数据， 这不是雅思的考 试目的。曲线图高分的关键还在于使用一些比较 native & accurate 的单词和短语 来描述 trend,不要淹没在云云众生的“垃圾词汇”中。 表格题考察你例举数字的能力和方法。 怎样通过举一些有代表性的数据来说明问 题是有讲究的（具体参考下篇表格题例举数字四种方法） 。 考试三原则：
第 2 页 共 35 页
1． Objectivity——客观性原则。Task 1 的基本要求是通过对数据的描述，使考官在不看到 这张图表的情况下也能明白图表所反映出来的特征，但在描述时不能有任何联想式的个 人观点，否则会导致严重的失误，但对图表信息总结说明是允许而且是必要的。 2． Carefulness — — 观 察 细 致 原 则 。 雅 思 作 文 在 出 题 是 有 时 会 安 排 一 个 hidden characteristic(隐含着的特征信息)， 如考生能够发现并加以描述， 可以得到一定的印象分， 如没发现，则正常阅卷。这些信息和你的英语水平是没有关系的，考察的是你的观察能 力和横向比较能力，考生应量力而为，千万不可因找寻 hidden characteristic 而浪费太多 的时间，得不偿失。

通过这张图上单位和数据的分析，我们发现百分比之和大于 100%。可以在最后一段写道 What is worth mentioning is that since the overall percentages exceeded 100%, it can be indicated that some adults chose several reasons for study. 表 格 题 中 有 一 些 在 中 间 一 下 子 出 现 的 数 据 ， 我 们 也 可 以 在 结 尾 段 点 出 它 的 hidden characteristic.如 Nuclear power did not make its debut until 1997(make one’s debut 是专门用来 描述新进数据的短语，用 appear 有歧义)。 3. Accuracy——精确性原则。雅思作文的命题当中有不少的 technical tramp, 特别表现在 数据的描述上。试看以下例子：
许多学生把它随意的交代成 It fluctuated from 1990 to 2000. 其实考官在这里故意设置曲线的
第 3 页 共 35 页
出头来考察考生的精确性。 应说成 It fluctuated from before 1990 to after 2000 或根据刻度间的 距离（实战应有标明） ，说成 It fluctuated from approximately 1988 to nearly 2002. ——Trend 考试高分必备表 1—— —— INCREASE 词语 Junk words increase rise raise(n) grow climb Favorable Words rocket escalate swell soar surge boom ease up edge up creep up Special words rally accrue leap 90 80 70 60 45 30 20 10 <10 反弹 小平 大平 说明

All statistics can be categorized into 2 stages with the popularity of listening to radio/predominance of radio audiences from about 6 am to 1 pm and the popularity of watching TV/predominance of TV audiences during the rest of the day.
As to the radio audience, it soared from about 6 am to 8 am, reaching the peak at about 25% at 8 am, followed by ebbing till the end of a day. We can witness the nadir occurred at around 4 in the morning. Back to the people watching TV, most of them watched TV from 5 pm to 12 am. The trend almost rose and fell evenly with sharp rise and fall. 8 in the evening was the peak hour for people to watch TV. Furthermore, after 3 am, less than 5% of people would listen to radio or watch TV. What is worth mentioning is that 8 am and 8 pm are the peak hours for people to listen to radio and watch TV respectively.

All statistics can be categorized into 3 stages with the equilibrium 均势 of/in the birth and death rates in the first decade of the 20th century, the predominance of birth rate in the following two decades, and the predominance of death rate from 1930 to 1970(in the consecutive 40 years). As to the birth rate, stabilization in the first ten years was followed by leaping to its zenith at 60 per thousand in 1920. We can witness a clear slump to almost one-third of the zenith in 1940. The next 20 years reflected an even rise and fall. Finally it abated to the trough in 1970. Contrary to the birth rate, the death one continued to creep down after the overlapping period till 1930, when a rally was shown between 1930 and 1940. Fortunately, fewer people died in the rest years, with ebbing to the nadir in 1970. What is worth mentioning is that both birth and death rates reached the bottom level in 1970. As to death rate, it abated from 1900 to 1930, followed by soaring to its peak at 5% in 1940. We can see an ebbing till 1970. In the respect of birth rate, the first decade witnessed stabilization, followed by leaping to its peak/zenith at nearly 6% in 1920. It slumped to 2% in 1940 and rose and fell evenly in the next two decades. Finally it had the similar trend with its counterpart, death rate.

The table makes a detailed comparison and contrast of different items of Madagascar and Mauritius around the Indian Ocean in 1999. Madagascar was leading in the following items: surface area, population and growth rate of population, which was almost 6 times that of the Mauritius. The surface area of Madagascar reached 12823 km2 while that of Mauritius only accounted for 2189. The percentage of growth rate of population covered 12%, 5 times above that of the counterpart. However, some of the indexes were led by Mauritius. The GDP per capita of Mauritius amounted to 360 US$, three times that of Madagascar. As for the percentages of enrollment of school, Mauritius also outpercentaged Madagascar in primary and secondary school. The difference was 2.52% for primary school and 22% for secondary school.

The table displays the 3 different items of underground railway system in six cities. All the statistics are compared in 3 items, kilometers of route, data opened and passengers per year. From the table, we can see the oldest underground railway system emerged in London in 1878 with the longest route of 1997. The second is the city of Paris built in 1900 with 1500 kilometers of route. Surprisingly the number of passenger per year (2400 thousand) exceeds that of the city of London (1900 thousand). The peak of the item emerges in Tokyo (3996 thousand). However, the other two items of Tokyo only lists the third. The debut city also shows a reverse situation. Miyazaki has the youngest system with fewest kilometers of route. Los Angles has the second youngest system built in 1978 with 4 kilometers longer than that of Miyazaki. What is worth mentioning is that the numbers of passengers per year is not proportionate with the kilometers of route.
