Model Answer - IELTS (Task 1)

The charts below show the number of Japanese tourists travelling abroad between 1985 and 1995 and Australia's share of the Japanese tourist market.


Summarise the information by selecting and reporting the main features, and make comparisons where relevant.


The bar chart shows how many Japanese visitors travelled abroad in a ten year period (between 1985 until 1995) while the line graph illustrates how many of these tourists visited Australia.

Between 1985 and 1990 the number of Japanese tourists going abroad increased from about 5 million to 11 million. This figure continued to rise until 1995 where it stood at 15 million except for 1991 which noted a slight drop to just above 10 million.

Generally there was an upward trend in Japanese tourists visiting Australia from 2% in 1985 to triple this amount ten years later. The peak travel years were 1989 at around 5% and 1994 at just above 6%.

To sum up, the Japanese demonstrated a preference for travelling aboard in the mid 80’s and early 90’s as shown by the rising figures. In addition, Australia was a favourite destination with the percentage of visits on the increase.
