Process is a difficult type of questions that usually appears in the IELTS test. Today, I want to share with you a band 8.0 essay I have written for this type.
In a Process question, there are usually some keywords already given in the diagram/process. What we need to do is to paraphrase these keywords in our essay in order to avoid repetition.
Have a look at my model essay and how I paraphrased the keywords below:
The flow chart illustrates how waste paper is recycled. It is clear that there are six main stages in the process of recycling waste paper. The first step of the process involves collecting paper that has been thrown away, and the final step is creating usable paper.
At the initial stage of the process, used paper is collected from either individuals or companies. The process continues with the paper being classified by workers, and inappropriate paper is eliminated. After that, the paper is carried to a paper mill to be ready for the next stages.
At the paper mill, the paper is cleaned and pulped. This step involves getting rid of other materials such as staples. The process continues with a step called “de-inking” where all inks and glues are removed from the paper. At the final stage, paper is put into a machine, and then new paper is finally produced and is ready to be used again.
