    Reference answer


    This table clearly presents and compares favorable pastimes in eight different countries. [Crack IELTS with Rob] The pastimes, across the top of the table, are analyzed in relation to each country.


    As can be seen, about 60% of Canadians, Australians and Americans like watching television. [Crack IELTS with Rob] On the other hand, this figure is quite low for China where only 15% of people watch television. Predictably, Americans like music at 23%, whereas only 2 to 5% of people in the other countries feel the same way. 20% of people in England enjoy sleeping as a pastime whereas in Canada and the USA, for example, the figure is only 2%. Interestingly, the Chinese like hobbies the most at 50%, as opposed to only 20% in France. It isn’t surprising that the highest percentage of beach-lovers is in Australia and the USA at 30%.


    It seems that pastimes of people of different nationalities may be influenced by a number of factors such as the socio-economic situation or the climate. [Crack IELTS with Rob] These factors influence cultural differences between different nationalities and make cross-cultural experiences more interesting.
