Tips for process diagram
Process diagrams show how something is done or made. They always show steps/stages.
Here’s some advice about how to describe them:
· Try to write 4 paragraphs – introduction, summary of main points, 2 detail paragraphs.
· Write the introduction by paraphrasing the question (rewrite it by changing some of
the words).
· For your summary, first say how many steps there are in the process. Then say
where/how the process begins and ends (look at the first and last stages).
· In paragraphs 3 and 4, describe the process step by step. Include the first and last steps
that you mentioned in the summary, but try to describe them in more detail or in a
different way.
· You could describe the steps in one paragraph, but it looks more organised if you
break the description into two paragraphs. Just start paragraph 4 somewhere in the
middle of the process.
· Mention every stage in the process.
· Use ‘sequencing’ language e.g. at the first / second / following / final stage of the
process, next, after that, then, finally etc.
· Times (e.g. past dates) are not usually shown, so use the present simple tense.
· It’s usually a good idea to use the passive e.g. ‘At the final stage, the product is
delivered to shops’ (because we don’t need to know who delivered the product).
