Sample Answer:

Dear Mr Singh,

I am writing to you to see what can be done about the loud noise coming from your flat. It seems that you are renovating your kitchen.

In the evenings we hear a lot of banging, hammering and drilling. Thinking that the problem will be for one or two days only, I kept on ignoring the noise. But, more than 10 days have passed and the amount of noise is increasing day by day. The deafening sounds of hammers and drilling machines are spoiling our evenings. It has become almost impossible for me and my family to do anything in the evening. Kids have their exams in two weeks. Therefore, something must be done to solve this issue.

I understand that your full-time work does not permit you to call the workers during the daytime. I would suggest that you contact a professional builder and take some days off from work. Certainly, an experienced person will be more efficient. Both I and my wife are working and our children are in their schools, so any noise between 8:00 am and 4:00 pm will not affect us.

If you need any assistance in finding a professional builder, I can help you. Please feel free to call me on 0091 788989898.

Hoping that you will take this suggestion into consideration. (221 Words)

Sample Answer

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am writing to report the loss of a valuable personal item on one of your trains.

The item is a navy blue laptop bag with the brand name ‘American Express’ embossed on the front. It has two zipped compartments. In one of the compartments I had kept my 15-inch Dell laptop. My passport, adaptor, mobile charger and some official documents were also inside.

Last Saturday, 15th March, I boarded the 2:30 pm train from Shimla to New Delhi. If I recall correctly, I was in the fourth carriage sitting near the front. I had kept the laptop bag in the overhead space. The long journey left me exhausted and while getting down, I forgot to take the bag with me.

Could you please let me know if a laptop bag of this description has been found? My phone number is 0091 7889898999. If you have it, please keep it in a safe place and I will make arrangements to collect it at your earliest convenience.

Thank you for your time.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours faithfully,

Sally Rana

IELTS Letter Sample Answer # Apology For Unavailability

Friends are the most important part of our lives. They are the ones that make our life more beautiful, making the tough times great and easy times simpler. But, as we grow, often the professional commitments come in our way of the personal commitments. The social circle widens and having time for everyone often gets difficult. Amidst the clashes, few friends stay and others leave. This time we are looking at a general letter writing sample answer asking an apology for unavailability to a friend.

Your friend is visiting you for a week. However, you are not available on the dates.

Write a letter to your friend apologizing for unavailability during her trip. You should –

  •  apologize for your absence
  • explain why you cannot be present
  • suggest an alternative plan

Write at least 150 words.


Dear Pooja,

I hope you are in your best of health. Happiness was all over my face when your letter came last week where you mentioned about your prospective visit to Delhi. I already had made few plans for us together but recently I was informed of a 15 days corporate training program organized by my employer. Sadly enough, the dates clash with your visiting dates.

But, my house is open for you. I live in the same place as earlier and although I won’t be there, my friend can host you.  You can stay in my room and feel free to use the kitchen, bathroom, and other amenities. My friend has agreed to go shopping with you on Saturday and there will be no issues with the food.

It has been a long time since we met and it would have been amazing if things turned out our way. But, I would be coming to Bombay next month. Hope to meet you soon.

Yours lovingly,


IELTS Letter: Request for a new room/dorm

IELTS Letter: Request for a new room/dorm
You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.
You live in a room which you share with another student. You have some problems with your roommate.

Write a letter to the accommodation officer of the college to change your room. In your letter

  • mention the problems you are facing
  • say how these problems are affecting you
  • request for a new room.

You do NOT need to write your own address.

Begin your letter as follows.

Dear Sir/Madam,

You should write at least 150 words.

Sample Answer

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am writing you to request for a new room in the halls of residence as I am facing problems with my current roommate.

The biggest problem is that I am unable to study or even sleep in my room because my roommate has a lot of friends who visit him every day in the evening. They are quite noisy and bothersome. They listen to loud music and play cards till late night. The room has just become a place of entertainment for him and his friends. Furthermore, he often borrows my personal belongings like backpacks, electronic devices and clothes without asking me. I find it very annoying.

His irresponsible behavior has seriously affected my studies. I used to be a bright student in my school but I got average grades in the first semester. Because of these results, I have lost my confidence. I fear if this situation were to extend for much longer, I would have no option but to change my college altogether. For you see I am a student and cannot afford to live outside college or even have a drastic decline in my studies for that matter.

I have tried to talk with him about this issue, to no avail. And thus I find myself having to report the severity of this predicament and to bring it to your notice. I hope by doing so I might be relocated to a more considerable roommate’s presence or if possible not have a roommate at all. As you are probably aware, next term are the semester examinations. If I am found to be lacking in those, I might be asked to leave this college, which as I mentioned previously would be a harsh circumstance.

I hope to hear from you soon.
Yours faithfully,
Sagar Victor
