大家在书写线图的时候要注意重点描述趋势的变化，并且要在注意一些词汇和句型的多样性。比如表示上升的rise, grow, increase, 表示下降的decrease, fall, decline等。在句型的使用中也要注意简单句，并列句和复杂句的同时使用。最后，烤鸭们可以多多借鉴雅思真题教材中的题目，比如剑5Test1, 剑7Test 2, 剑9Test4，都是很具有参考意义的线图。

We have depended on newspapers for information for a very long time and it exerts a significant influence in our daily lives. However, the rise of information technology makes newspapers less popular than several years ago, which makes me personally disagree that newspaper is the best media to obtain the latest information.
In the past old days, newspapers were the only way for people to get news, though it took time to edit, print and distribute them. Also, phones were relatively unaffordable and the interface of web browsing was not user-friendly, so people had to rely on newspapers to keep in touch with the latest trend.
However, the advance in technology and the change in individuals’ lifestyle have faded the influence of newspapers. Other medium, such as news app on the phones, is a more effective channel for people to be informed with news. The latest issues can be reported and uploaded just a few seconds after its occurrence and there will be considerable amount of news ranging from some sensational international headlines and some trivial local gossips available. As a result, individuals gradually bid farewells to newspapers and turn to news apps.
From my perspective, I have to admit that the heyday of newspaper has passed and its fall ushers in an era when other media can provide the masses with some information. Apart from the news app mentioned above, the TV and Internet also have replaced the dominance of newspapers because these two counterparts inform readers with visual and audio enjoyment, which is more likely to have the viewers engaged in the reports and leave them a deeper impression. Newspaper is also more bogged down due to the quicker pace of people’s life. It seems that we can hardly sit down to read a newspaper and ponder over its content; rather, we prefer to grab the information through other more portal and accessible ways.
