Academic Writing - Model Answer (Task 1)

The bar chart shows how British children felt about reading in 2009.

First, about 45% of the boys like reading only a little bit while 35% of the girls also feel the same about reading. 32% of the girls find reading enjoyable and 5% less is true for boys. Approximately 30% of the girls really enjoy reading whereas about half of this percentage of boys enjoy reading very much. Very few boys and girls aged 8 to 16 do not enjoy reading at all. Less than 15% of the children have this attitude towards reading.

We can see that most of the children (around 40%) are not very keen on reading, but only 10% don’t enjoy reading at all. In terms of enjoying reading quite a lot and very much, the percentages for all children are 28% and 22% respectively. It also seems that girls enjoy reading more than boys as their percentages were greater in the first two categories.
