IELTS Academic Writing - Task 1

The line graph shows the monthly temperatures in London, New York and Sydney on average per month while the table displays the hours of sunshine in these 3 cities.

To begin with, low temperatures are recorded from November to January in New York, that is, less than 100 . Temperatures rise in this city from March to July by 200, then drop to 150 in October. A similar pattern can be observed in London. From December to April it is below 150, while from June to August, temperatures are between 200 and 150. In October and November it starts getting colder with drops in temperature from 180 to 100. Sydney is fairly warm with the coldest month being July (160). From November to March, temperatures are stable at around 250. From April to July there is a drop from 250 to 160 and from July to October temperatures rise from 160 to 240.

New York is the sunniest city with 2,535 annual hours of sunshine followed by Sydney with 62 days less. London ranks third with 1,180 hours of sunshine per year.

To conclude, July is the hottest month in New York and London but in Sydney it is the coldest. Sydney's temperature follows a different pattern to the other two cities. New York has the most sunshine every year whilst London has the least hours.
