General Training Writing Task 1: a letter to a pen friend

You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.
You have a pen friend living in another country and he/she is curious to know about the major news items in your country.
Briefly describe ONE news story that has been on TV, on the radio or in the newspapers in your country and explain why people are interested in it.
Write at least 150 words.
You do NOT need to write your own address.

Begin your letter as follows:
Dear ………..

Sample Answer

Dear Asha,

I hope you are doing well. It has been ages since I wrote to you. I was very busy with my board examinations. It is a big step towards my future. It seems to me as if the whole world is gearing up for a new beginning with unexpectedly surprising measures.

As for India, we are all demonetizing our ₹500 and ₹1,000 notes to battle black money. The expected amount to be ‘found’ is around £200 Billion GBP. Just take a moment to soak that all in. This is a gigantic move for India as sadly there is a lot of bribery and black money handling. Heck, every single person in India could be a mini millionaire if all of its wealth were to be distributed equally among its citizens.

Honestly, from my point of view the situation is pretty hilarious. As just yesterday people were trying to rake in as much money as possible, the bigger notes the better. And just in a matter of hours people went from gazing lovingly to simply hostilely glaring at bundles of money. Don’t you think all this is very humorous too?

But enough about my country, what about you? How do you feel about Donald Trump being elected? What new and unexpected things do you think will happen next?

Your buddy,
Diksha Ramola

IELTS Writing: Letter to the railway company to report a lost item. Describe the item. Explain where and when you left it.

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 WRITING LETTER : The Local council

IELTS General Training Task 1: a business letter
You should spend 20 minutes on this task.

The Local Council in your city has no funds for repairs and maintenance of old buildings. It has decided to demolish an old historical building to build a software company. Write a letter to the head of the Council. In your letter

· explain why the building is important

· suggest how the building can be used to benefit the local community

· suggest a solution to finance the repairs. 

Write at least 150 words.

You do NOT need to write any addresses.

Begin your letter as follows:

Dear Sir/Madam,

IELTS WRITING LETTER : The Local council in your city. It has decided to demolish an old historical building to build a software company.

Sample Answer:

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am writing to express my dissatisfaction with the Local Council’s decision to pull down the old Heritage Centre of Mussoorie.

This building has been a historic landmark of our area for over 150 years. It has a huge collection of paintings and artefacts. Most of them were handcrafted by skilled craftsmen who worked tirelessly for the development of our town. The centre used to be a popular tourist attraction, but because of the negligence of the Local Council it has lost its popularity.

I understand that the building is in a dilapidated state. Certainly, the proposed software company will generate more employment opportunities for people living in this region. Nevertheless, this progress will be at the expense of losing one of the oldest historic landmarks of Mussoorie. Somehow, it seems unacceptable to me.

I believe that the Heritage Centre can be restored and put to good use for the local community. The Council can use it as a community centre or traditional skills learning centre for the locals. As far as the fundraising is concerned, I hope that volunteers would gladly come forward to devote some time for this noble cause. In addition, the Council can contact local companies to donate small funds for preserving this historic building.

I hope that the Local Council of Mussoorie reconsiders its decision of destroying the Heritage Centre and finds a different site for building the software company.

Yours faithfully,

Savan Sharma

Dear ………………..

IELTS Writing Letter Describe the problem with a neighbour say how long it has been a problem what action you would like the neighbour to take

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)

Regards,

Lovely Singh
