Academic Writing - Model Answer (Task 1)

The bar chart shows what children read in their leisure time in England in the year 2007. This material is read by boys and girls aged 9 - 14 more than once a month.

The majority of girls enjoy reading magazines while between 45 and 60% of them read websites, emails, fiction and blogs or networking websites more than once a month. Less than 30% of them enjoy newspapers, poetry, factual books, manuals and graphic related material.

Over half the boys aged 9 to 14 read magazines and websites. Readership of emails, newspapers and blogs or networking sites are around 45% while fiction and comic/graphic novels are slightly less. All other reading material categories are less than 30%.

We can see that both boys and girls enjoy reading magazines the most and that the last three categories of reading materials presented on the chart are the least popular.
