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

Sample Answer

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am Parag Dutta. I had applied for the Master’s in Social Work (MSW) course in your college. Yesterday, I received a letter of acceptance for the same. I am writing to apologize for not being able to start this course immediately and to discuss its future availability.

I am very keen to pursue a Master’s program in Social Work. It would greatly boost my career growth. But, work commitments have interrupted my plan of studies. I have been working with a Non-governmental Organization for the past 3 years.  Recently, we have started an overseas project. I am a member of the team and I have to go to Sri Lanka for at least 6 months.

Since this course starts in July and I am supposed to leave for Sri Lanka in the first week of August, it is not feasible for me to start it right now. Anyway, please let me know if I could join it after February, 2018 as I will be back by then.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours faithfully
Parag Dutta

Dear Sir,

My name is Rosy Ali. I have recently completed a one year diploma in Mass Communication from your academy. I am writing to share my experience of this course with you.

In total, there were 6 subjects in the course. All of them were quite interesting. But, the print media was my favorite major as it developed my writing skills significantly. It was very informative to learn about different types of write-ups such as news stories, articles, press release and blogs etc. Video Editing was another enjoyable subject. The way faculties introduced us to the practical aspects of editing tools and methodologies is really appreciable.

The classes at your academy were attractive and stimulating. They have transformed my amateur talent of writing into a professional ability.  This is a considerable achievement for me. In fact, I am planning to embark on a career in the print media.

Overall, my experience of the course has been great. Still, I would suggest you to introduce evening batches or weekend classes for working professionals or students who are unable to attend the full-time course.

Yours sincerely,
Jasleen Kaur

Dear Radhika Ma’am,

It has been almost two months since I joined the Public speaking course and have been benefiting from it in leaps and bounds. Not only does the course helps me in giving good speeches, it also helps me to communicate better with people. It was with the help of this course that I have got selected in an MNC and would be moving for the job next week.

It will, therefore, be not possible for me to continue with the course. However, it has been a learning experience and I have learned not only English speaking but so many other facets of the language from you. You helped me become more confident on stage and I can now give a 15-minute talk easily on stage. The books and the material that you provided is a lifelong treasure.

Hope to be in touch online.
