IELTS Writing Task 1 on migration reasons
- immigration and emigration reasons
- to and from the United Kingdom
In the year 2007, 30% of people came and immigrated to the UK for a definite job. The second highest was for getting formal studies, which was 26 percent. Moving further, 15% of people wanted to join and accompany their families. Furthermore, 12% of them were looking for work. 11% of them had other reasons and 6% for no reason stated.
- exactly 30%
- ‘came and immigrated to’ have almost the same meaning.
- The second highest = The second most important reason …
- You should know the slight differences between ‘study’ and ‘studies’ that are used as nouns.
- 26 percent = Use either symbols like % or spell it out throughout the essay.
- Moving further is NOT a conjunction.
- … 12% and 11% of the immigrants were pursuing careers and had some other reasons respectively.
- … had no specific / clear reason = how to change statistical data to interpreted content or report
In contrast, the reason for emigration to the UK because of a definite job is 29%. The second level is looking for work with 22%, and 18% were not stated. 14% of people had other reasons from the reasons that were mentioned. In addition, 13 % wanted to join their families. Ultimately, 4% emigrated for formal studies. This was 26% for immigration reasons. We can assume from this that people worldwide considered the UK as a relevant and authentic country to get a formal study back in 2007.
