Study Tips
When describing a process or procedure in IELTS Writing Task 1, it is important to use passive constructions. This makes your writing impersonal and more formal. For general descriptions, the present passive is commonly used. When reporting a particular procedure, like conducting a survey, past passive verb forms are commonly used. Remember to use sequence markers, for example: first, then, after that, finally. These make your writing cohesive and your sentences flow smoothly.
