Dear Sir/ Madam,
I am Rita, a senior executive at TCS and I am writing to inform you that I have recently stayed at your hotel and left my bag in the room I stayed in.
My family had recently been to Bangalore to attend a wedding ceremony held at your hotel (The Leela) on 10th March. We stayed in room no. 2100 for two days. After reaching back to my home in Delhi, I noticed that I missed my bag in your hotel room. The bag was probably kept near the bed. It is a red color, medium size bag. Since, it contains some precious jewelry and few dresses of mine, so I need to receive it on urgent basis.
I spoke to the hotel receptionist and she asked me to report the matter to you. I would really appreciate if you could courier it to my home address as soon as possible.
Looking forward to getting a positive response. (158 words)
Describe a good news that you have heard recently about your relatives
What the news was
When you heard it
How you heard this news
And explain how you felt about this news
I am very close to some of my relatives, especially my aunt and her son. I share a strong bond with both of them. Today, I’m going to talk about a happy news which I received about my cousin brother.
I live in Dehradun and my aunt lives in New Delhi. Last Sunday I went to New Delhi for some official work. Despite having a tight work schedule, I managed to go to my aunt’s house for some time in the evening. She had prepared a delicious dinner for me. During dinner she told me about my cousin brother’s selection as a senior manager in a Five Star Hotel in London. Currently, he works as a manger in Hotel Hyatt, a luxury hotel, in New Delhi.
I felt ambivalent when I heard this news. On one hand, I was very happy about his achievement. He has worked hard to reach that level. This job offer was a reward of his hard work and perseverance. On the other hand, I was sad because he is the only child my aunt has. She would be alone if he went to London. How would she live without him? All these questions were coming to my mind. To be honest, I didn’t discuss these concerns with her. It was their personal decision to accept or reject the offer. I had nothing to do with that. I wholeheartedly congratulated her and came to Dehradun the next day.
Describe an outdoor activity that you did for the first time.
You should say:
What you did.
Where and when you did it.
How you felt about it later.
and say if you would recommend this activity to your friends.
Being a lethargic person, I usually end up procrastinating and not taking part in outdoor activities. It was recently that I went on a trek with a few of my friends when they persuaded me to accompany them. As it was my first trek, I enjoyed it greatly and it helped me challenge my physical strength.
I live in Dehradun, which is a valley in Uttrakhand it is surrounded by hills, therefore, we do not have to travel long distances for activities like trekking and camping. Two weeks ago, I went hiking in Mussorie which is nearly one hour away from my city.
Trekking is a fun activity that mainly involves exploring nature on foot. Though it needed a fair amount of physical exertion, the view it witnessed after reaching our final destination was genuinely worth it. Going for hiking for the first time was not only a recreational outdoor activity, but I also got the taste of living in the wild though just for a few hours. As we just carried some of the essentials, for the first time I experienced cooking in the wild with limited resources which was extraordinary.
I’m glad that I went for trekking as it helped me overcome my fear of heights. I’d highly recommend this activity of everyone because though one gets exhausted, it’s refreshing and an easy escape from the mundane boredom of professional and personal lifestyle. The best part is that you develop a close relation with your friends while helping each other through difficult paths and finding ways as well.
The students who appear for IELTS speaking tests are expected to use good grammar structure. In order to achieve higher band score, the candidates should avoid minor grammatical errors. Third conditional being one of it.
FORMAT: if + past perfect, …would + have + past participle
USE: when one has to talk about some event in past that did not take place. This is often used to express regret or assume the result of something that did not occur hence also known as ‘unreal conditions’.
If she had taken her medicines on time, she wouldn’t have felt sick. (But she did not take her medicines, so she fell sick).
He would have caught the train if he had left the house on time.
The sentences with the third conditions seems a bit negative than the first and second condition. It is a common error for candidates to put ‘if’ and ‘would’ together.
If you had left on time, you wouldn’t have missed the train.
