Hi Simon,
I have an off-topic question for you. When reporting graphs, are we supposed to just report what we see or are we allowed to infer/interpret information as well?
eg. if there was a graph with number of drivers licenses issued over the decades, can I mention how it might reflect potential increase in ownership of cars and how women were eventually allowed to drive or should I just stick to reporting the trend?

Thank you

Thank you, Simon.
Another thing which I am convinced all the IELTS candidates are aware of already is to use a good dictionary that involves collocations, phrases and possibly idioms. I ,for instance, use the 3rd edition of Cambridge Advanced Learners' Dictionary which meets all my needs in terms of learning new vocabulary. It became my 'friend' ever since I installed. I always highly recommend my friends use it.
Best regards.
