Academic Writing - Model Answer (Task 1)

The diagrams show the transformation of a relatively small fishing village with a population of 12,000 into a popular holiday resort in 2004 that is able to cater for 50,000 tourists. Similarly, the local population has grown to 80,000 inhabitants.

In the first diagram there are two villages located in the hills and another one near the harbour. The natural environment consists of woodland and olive groves. Thirty years later the original fishing village has been incorporated into the resort. To the left and right of this there is a stretch of beaches with hotels. A golf course has been built on the hill behind the hotels. The olive groves have been replaced by farmland that is used to supply the hotels with fruit and vegetables. The locals live between the farmland and the original village while a road runs to the right of this up to the top of the hill. Tourist shops have been built in the village behind the farmland.

To conclude, the fishing village is now densely populated and construction has taken place to accommodate visitors. It is almost unrecognisable apart from the original village that has remained in place.
