IELTS General Training Task 1: a business letter

SAMPLE ANSWER

Dear ………………..

Sample Answer:

Dear Mr Johnson,

I wish to take up your job proposal which you so generously offered to me during our flight to London from Italy on the 12th of March this year. You offered me your business card after hearing my plight for work after my employer fired me due to shortage of money.

I wish to apply to your renowned restaurant chain “Seasonal Secret” as a Sous (second in command) or Senior (lower in command chain) chef.

Formally I have worked for “Pasta Palace” in Italy, Rome as a tournant (general station manager) and saucier (in charge of side dish and main sauces) chef. My previous employment not only granted me work experience but also an insight into the culinary world, its expectations and ethics.

Currently I have expertise in over 53 gourmet dishes, of which most are included on the special menu in your chain. My forte lies in consommé, vegan and meat charcuteries, pappardelle, Italian risotto and a host of other delicacies including beef wellington and turducken. In deserts my pièce de résistance would be baumkuchen, a German delicacy which I am sure you are familiar with. Baked Alaska and pâté feuilletée are also some of my talents. Naturally most of these dishes cannot be prepared on a whim and do require a good amount of preparation time.

I believe I have all the qualities required to become a Sous chef, including the team management and crisis handling abilities which are often overlooked parts of this career path. My educational qualifications include a degree in ‘Culinary Arts’ from St Albus College, Ravenna. For further information regarding my academic background my CV is attached.

I do look forward to hearing from you.

Yours sincerely,

Mark Doupain

Writing Task 1: Letter to the manager regarding parking facility problem

Sample Answer

Dear Sir,

I am Liza and I am writing to report the lack of parking facility in our office premises.

I have been working here as a front office executive for almost 3 years. This company is indeed an employee friendly organisation but parking is still a major concern for everyone. Majority of employees prefer private vehicles to commute to work. But, due to no parking space, employees have to use public transport. This is awfully unsafe for the female workers, especially at night.

Moreover, searching for a parking space nearby is a time consuming task for both business clients and employees. As our business is expanding, the number of visitor is also increasing. Hence, the problem of parking is becoming worse day by day

Having no parking zone is a serious problem and this cannot be neglected. Therefore, I would like to suggest some remedial measures to resolve this issue. Firstly, we can provide parking facility on the ground floor of the building by shifting the marketing department to the fifth floor. Alternatively, we can request the municipal corporation to allocate some reserved space for the parking in the nearby area.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours Sincerely

Liza

IELTS Writing: Letter to a Friend Best IELTS Band 7 Coaching in Dehradun

Sample Answer

Dear Steffi,
I was glad to see your letter after a long time. I am sorry I couldn’t reply earlier as I went to Japan to spend holidays with my aunt. We returned last week. I am happy to know that you consider me a person whose advice can help you to adjust in a new environment.

I believe, in order to feel comfortable at a new place, you should start exploring all interesting places nearby. Be humble to the people you encounter with. Try to initiate dialogue with them, instead of waiting for them to be friendly. Then, share your contact number so that you can invite them to spend some quality time together. You can also join some clubs or hobby classes, where you can find people having the similar interests like you. In school, try to participate in some group activities for understanding your classmates. While doing such activities, you can also share your thoughts with them.

I hope you get some help from this letter to deal with the situation. I really miss the wonderful time we spent together in school. Keep writing so that we can carry forward this special bond of friendship for lifetime. (198 words)
Best Wishes,
Maria

Dear Sir/Madam,

IELTS GT Letter: Problems with the Apartment, IELTS BAND7 DEHRADUN

Sample Answer

Dear Sir,
I am writing to bring to your notice the problems we are facing in our newly rented apartment. I am Anna White. My family moved to your flat number 131, Pacific Avenue, last month.

Overall, we are pleased with the facilities provided. But, for the last few days, the water supply has become very irregular. Water comes only in the evening from 6 pm to 7 pm. Apart from this, the water heater is not functioning. It is making a lot of noise and only cold water comes from the faucet.

As you know that my wife and I work in overseas firms. Our office timings are from 11:00 am to 8:00 pm. So, no one is at home to store water in the evening. Scarcity of water and non-functioning heater, both problems are causing a lot of inconvenience for us.

I had a word with the utility manager of the apartment. He assured us to resolve the issue. Unfortunately, it has been more than a week since then and no action has been taken to solve the problem. After waiting for many days, I decided to inform you. Please look into this matter as soon as possible.
I look forward to receiving a prompt response.
Yours Sincerely
Anna White
