General Training Writing task 1: Complaint Letter Noisy Restaurant

IELTS Writing Task 1: Complaint Letter

You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.

A restaurant near your home is making a lot of noise. You called the manager but no action was taken.

Write a letter to the manager. In your letter

  • introduce yourself
  • describe the problems you are facing because of this
  • suggest solutions

Write at least 150 words.

You do NOT need to write any addresses.

Begin your letter as follows:

Dear Sir/Madam,


Dear Sir/Madam,

I am a resident at the MG Road, and the president of the residential association for the people living in and around the MG Road. My house is right next to your restaurant.

I am writing to bring it into your notice that we hear a lot of noise coming out from your restaurant. Loud music being played in the pub and people getting rowdy and creating ruckus after drinking is a common site these days at your restaurant. And it gets really loud, when it’s expected to be quieter.

To be honest, I am a bit disappointed. Before writing to you, twice I had a word with the manager of your restaurant. He told me that he will look into it for me but nothing happened. He turned a deaf ear, and I feel that was a bit rude of him to do so.

I would like to request you here to curb the sound post 2300 hours and maybe install sound proof glasses wherever necessary. As you know it’s against the law to play loud music between 22:00 and 07:00.

As well, would really appreciate if you could ask your clients to keep their voices to themselves, as they tend to get too loud after downing few pints and hire a few bouncers to keep the brawlers at bay. If everyone liked the same sounds, noise would not be a problem. What’s music to your ears, your neighbors might dislike.

Looking forward to a positive response and a speedy resolution of my concern. Thanking you, in anticipation.

Warm Regards

IELTS Letter Sample Question # Lost Bag

You should spend 20 minutes on this task.

You have just spent a weekend staying at The Taj hotel in Mumbai. When you get home you find out that you have left a bag at the hotel.

  • the details of your room and the bag.
  • how can one identify the bag?

You should write at least 150 words.

SAMPLE ANSWER

Dear Mr. Joshi,

I visited your hotel on 23rd March and stayed in room 342 until 25 March. We had a business meeting and even booked your hall for the meeting. It was surely a great visit, however, on reaching home I discovered that I had left one of my bags at the hotel.

The bag is a red color VIP bag with a green color ribbon tied to one of the chains. Although the bag is locked, the front chain has got a photo of mine along with a photostat of your hotel’s menu. Even more, there is a calculator and a parker. Although, inside the bag, there are only clothes of mine, but they do are important especially because I bought them after a lot of cultural analysis.

I would appreciate if you could check with your lost and found department and inform me if there is a bag. The clothes are important as I need to wear them for the presentations starting next week. I would be grateful if you could send them to the airport tomorrow where I could pick them, services will be payed.

Regards,

Avantika

IELTS Letter Sample Question # Issues in Museum

ISSUES IN MUSEUM

You went to a museum with an elderly friend of yours last week and found some issues in museum. However, she/he found it difficult to walk around in the museum and figure out things. Write a letter to the manager and say whom

  • did you visit the museum with?
  • what problems or inconvenience did she or he face?
  • suggest a solution that will enhance the museum experience for the elderly people.
SAMPLE ANSWER
Dear Sir/Madam,
We have had an immense pleasure in visiting your museum over the last few years. It was because of this reputation that I invited my grandfather and his friends to visit the museum.It was very obvious to me that they will love it.
However, it is quite disheartening for me to tell you that there were a couple of issues they faced.Firstly, there is no order or story to the things displayed in the museum. This made it very difficult for them to grasp the basic concept of a particular thing displayed.
Secondly, there is very little help available. My grandfather wanted to go to the toilet but could not find it and when we tried seeking out help, all we got were some confusing answers.
I believe it will be better if the items displayed in the museum have a story to tell making it easier to understand the significance of the things displayed. Even more, since the space in the museum is too large, having people to help the elderly in finding things will surely increase the visitors.
Regards,
Avantika
SAMPLE ANSWER 2
Dear Sir/Madam,
Last week I was visited by my grandparents and their friends. To make their stay comfortable, I planned an evening with them in your museum. Initially, the thought of the museum did excite them, adding to which was the reputation that your museum holds.
However, with quite a dissatisfaction, I need to tell you that the services in your museum have detoriated over the years. Firstly, there are not many things to offer in the canteen. For an elderly person, there are only two options available, tea and coffee. Things like juice or fruits or for that matter, simple things like dosa ain’t there. This makes exploring the museum very difficult for the elders.
Secondly, there are not many bits of help available. We roamed for around 20 minutes before we could actually locate the toilet in the museum.
I believe these are not major concerns for the young people. However, when looking at the perspective of the elderly, these do become big issues. Hope that you will work on them.
Regards,
Avantika
