Task 1: The chart below gives information about the age of women in Australia when they give birth to their first child in 1966, 1986 and 2006
Gợi ý: Cách làm dạng bài Bar Chart
The bar chart details the percentage of Australian women giving birth to their first child in 1966, 1986 and 2006, and the figures are classified according to six different age groups. Overall, it is clear that over the given period, Australian women were more inclined towards bearing their first child during late adulthood, with the percentage of women belonging to the 4 oldest age groups showing upward trends, as opposed to the two youngest groups which present quite an opposite pattern.
In 1966, around 65% of women aged between 20 and 24 gave birth to their first child, making this the most popular age range. The proportions of women belonging to the remaining age groups were noticeably lower, at only 40% (25-30), 37% (19 and under), 15% (30-34), 5% (30-39) and a negligible 2% (40+). Over the next 40 years, the patterns shifted as fewer young women decided to give birth, with the figure for the 19-and-under dropping markedly to 10%, and the 25-to-30 group also followed suit, having its rates decreasing to 35%. In contrast, the percentages of first birth givers aged between 25 and 30 and between 30 to 34 saw increases, amounting to 45%, and 50% respectively. An even more significant upward trend is evident in the 30-to-34 and 34-to-39 age groups when their figures rose at an exponential gradient, with the former rising to 50% and the latter to 30%. Finally, not many women wished to deliver babies at this later age of 40 or more, as the rates first plateaued at 2% in 1986 and marginally grew thereafter to 3% in 2006.

Task 2: Nowadays it is not only large companies that can make films. Digital technology enables anyone to produce films. Do you think it is a positive or negative development?
Unlike many years ago when cinematography is exclusive1 to large companies, films made by individuals using their own devices have enjoyed increasing popularity2 in recent years. I am of the opinion that this is more likely to have positive consequences.
The fact that filmmaking is increasingly more accessible has helped add variety to cinematography3. Movies made by big companies, on the one hand, are restricted to a handful of4 themes and backgrounds, several of which are even heavily censored5. On the other hand, films made by potential filmmakers, albeit amateur, transcend6 barriers7 of ethnicities and backgrounds. Around 400-500 movies are made by Hollywood every year, many of which are Americentric8 and revolve around9 superheroes, romance, thrillers and comedies. Meanwhile, with a phone sitting in our pockets and film editing applications at our disposal, that number can add up to millions, with more themes covered and a great array of10 settings shown.
Additionally, easy access to filming technology helps discover hidden talented people. Thanks to video-sharing platforms such as Youtube or Facebook, several unknown people have attained11 resounding success12 just by one or two short films. In Vietnam, for example, a lot of amateur movie-making teams have become overnight sensations13 by posting short comedies and web dramas onto their sites. Although those films are low-budget, they are well-received14 by the general public, and many aspiring15 actors, actresses, and directors are discovered and eventually shot to fame16. The Sundance Film Festival, once a low-profile17 venue for small-budget creators, has become a media extravaganza18 for new talents now that more and more independent movie creators are able to make films using their own devices.
Inconclusion, my firm conviction is that the widespread popularity of amateur films thanks to the advent of19 technology is a welcome trend, for it adds spices to the film industry and promotes aspiring individuals wishing to pursue professional film careers.
