OK. See the table below to see what the key phrases (in bold) mean:

What do you want to say Good Vocabulary to use
went up and down over a time period fluctuated somewhat

went up rose
went up slowly gradually rose
went up by a little creeping up marginally
went down a little dropped slightly, declined slightly
went down very quickly fell sharply
went down noticeably over a period of time marked downward trend

Did you categorize them differently? Which phrases were easy and which were difficult?

We’ll continue to practise analyzing Writing Task 1 charts and graphs in future posts.
