The bar chart shows the number of children in two different age groups in an average class in different countries.
Summarise the information by selecting and reporting the main features, and make comparisons where relevant.
The bar chart compares the average number of pupils per class in four different countries: Japan, Hong Kong, Russia and the United States. The vertical axis shows the students per class from 0 to 40 and the two coloured columns present the children’s ages, 9 and 13.
As can be seen in the graph, the significantly lowest number with just over 10 pupils regarding the age group 9, concerns Russia. It is followed by the United States (slightly more than 40) and by Japan with a number of around 30 pupils. In Hong Kong, there are about 35 students in a class. The number of students per class in all countries, except Russia, reaches or exceeds the global average (22).
The number of students in Japan and Hong Kong are inverse in comparing the age 9 with the age 13. In other words, Japanese classes are the biggest (35) and are succeeded by Hong Kong (marginally over 30 students).
The Russian (about 10) and American (17) figures are inferior to the global average (18).
Overall, just Japan and Hong Kong are above, Russia is below and America correspond with the global average.
