    2. GROWTH IN TOURISM Tourism is the world’s largest industry, worth $500 billion in 2007. International tourism (people arriving in all countries from abroad for a holiday) is increasing. In most countries, domestic tourism (people going on holiday in their own country) is about 4x greater than international tourism. The tourism industry is one of the greatest providers of jobs and income in countries at all stages of development. For 83% of countries, tourism is one of the top 5 sources of foreign exchange. The top 6 tourist destination countries are France, Spain, the USA, China, Italy and the UK. Germans spend more per person than any other nation on holiday. 2mins Read the passage and copy down one significant piece of information (15 words max.) Swap with your partner to get one additional piece of information from them

    3. INTERPRETING TABLES & GRAPHS You may be asked to interpret tables of data. You should look for patterns and trends. Tiny differences are important and may show a trend and this is what you need to pick out.

    23. GROWTH IN TOURISM Draw a sketch of the growth in world tourism graph. Use the statements provided and place them where you think they fit on the graph. International tourist arrivals (millions) Year

    24. LIVING GRAPH • Add in two more statements of your own that help to explain why world tourism has grown.

    25. TOURIST ATTRACTIONS Many people choose to visit cities to enjoy the culture associated with museums, art galleries, architecture or shops and restaurants. Cities such as London, Rome and Paris have a huge amount to offer tourists of every age. The natural landscape is also a major ‘pull’ for tourists, particularly mountains such as the Alps or beautiful stretches of coastline. Physical or natural attractions are natural attractions such as beaches, climate, sea, mountains and rivers etc. Human or man made attractions are built or constructed by humans such as castles (heritage), churches (cultural), theme parks etc.

    26. ANNOTATING PHOTOS Photos can be labelled directly with arrows to point out the features. The labels need to be detailed. Keep what you write clear, straight forward and to the point. You need to be able to annotate and point out the physical and human attractions
