Thank you so much Simon for very important lesson.

Thank you Simon! I visit your website everyday and all your work is very important for me! I wish you have a nice weekend!

Hi Simon,
Can I just say " the number of people using the car increase gradually" instead of " the number of people who use the car...."

hi simon
1. what is the difference between, "the numbers of people" and "the number of people"

2. As you have stated, the number of bus users falls( why it is not fall instead of falls as 'the number of bus users' is plural)

Hi Simon
I also have the same question as Lexi about how is different beteween " The number of people who..." and " The number of bus users"

Many thanks,

Nga Ha

Hi dear Simon ..
Firstly , I would like to thank you for these excellent lessons ..
I have a couple of question to you ..

1. In your overview paragraph , you have used "present simple" .. However the graph contains years like 1970,1980,1990,2000,2010 that refers to past and years like 2020 , 2030 which shows future .. Could you please make it clear ?

2. What is the difference between "the number of people" and "the numbers of people" ? should we use plural verb after both of them ?

Thanks for your attention

Hello Simon .. Thank you so much for preparing lessons for us .

What do you think about my introduction ?

The line graph compares the daily use of bus , car and train by Uk commuters over a period of 60 years from 1970 to 2030 .

Hi Simon,

I have just sent you an email about a tricky question.Couldn't attach the question here so I sent it via email.I'd be really happy if you can answer when you have time,may be not personally but on this website,so that everyone can benefit from it.

Thanks in advance,


The graph compares the number of users on 3 different transportation systems during a period from 1970 to 2030. In the next paragraphs will offer some observations about it.

The cars data shows the highest values. Between 2000 and 2030 the data of users reported and projected is significantly higher versus the 1970s. The expectations for the future users are optimistic because present a notable increase in the number of clients. Furthermore, more than 7 million commuters were on 2000 and for 2030 the graph shows notable projections with approximately 9 million car users.

On the other hand, Bus data as a transportation media, presented the highest level on 1970 (approximately four million users) but for 2030 the projections of users are 1 million less than the beginning. This data indicate than this transport system might be affected by the preferences of people for a car.

Finally, the data for train clients shows no changes between 2000 and 2010. After 2010 the data shows an increase in users (roughly one million clients more than 2010). The projections of users data from 2013 to 2030, in comparison with 2010, looks positive because expected one million of new clients.

Thank u a lot. The lesion help me so much. I 've read almost of your posts n considered them the best IE material i have
