Academic Writing - Model Answer (Task 1)

The bar chart shows how long various age groups spend on the computer, TV and listening to the radio in the U.K.

The oldest age group, 55+ spends 4 hours daily watching television. Those aged 25-54 spend a little over 3 hours on this media whilst the youngest age group watches a little less than 3 hours per day.

Youngsters spend 3 and a half hours on the computer and the next age group slightly less than this. The 45-54 year olds are on the computer 2 and a half hours per day and the 55+ group 1 and a half hours less. Lastly, the 45-54 year olds listen to the radio for 1 and a half hours each day and the 25-44 and 55+ group are tuned in for an hour. The youngsters have the radio on for half an hour only.

Television is the most popular medium preferred by all groups and in particular the 55+ group. Radio is not used frequently. Computers are used less as the age group gets older.
