Today you’ll learn band 9 IELTS vocab. for Task 1 Change Over Time.

We had a great question from a 3 Keys student:

I’m wondering if there’s a Change Over Time graph with time from the past to the future, what tense should I use? What will the overall trend be?

Don’t get complicated with verb tense– it’s either right or wrong.

For numbers in the past use past simple, and use ‘will‘ for future numbers.

In our course, 3 Keys IELTS, you’ll learn all the sentence structures and vocabulary you need for every IELTS Task 1 essay.
