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

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

Sample Answer

Dear Sir,

First of all, I would like to congratulate you for successfully completing two years as a publication house. You keep adding interesting columns in your newspaper. Readers like me appreciate your articles. I am writing in regard to the feature your newspaper is planning to introduce for which readers are welcomed to provide their suggestions.

You can consider ‘Mind, Body and Spirit’ as a subject of interest for readers. Due to the modern lifestyle, people are overloaded with responsibilities. In order to fulfill these responsibilities, they often overlook their health. As a result, they suffer from depression, anxiety and other health issues. In this column you can provide information about how a healthy mind is important for a healthy body. You can further discuss in detail about how to get the same with the help of spiritualism, yoga and regular exercise etc.

This topic is indeed of great importance because healthy people are happy people or vice-versa. Readers will definitely show their keen interest in this column and would love to learn new tips for leading a balanced life.

I hope you will take my suggestion into consideration.

Sample Answer

Dear Sir,

I am writing to apply for the position of Soft skill trainer, published in the Hindustan Times on 22/10/2019. I have been working with your company since last two years as a part-time content writer.

Before joining this company, I was working as a soft skill trainer with XYZ Company. Since I am currently working on a part-time basis, I would like to continue as a full-time employee in your organisation.

Recruiting internally is always less time-consuming and cost-effective for any company. I not only know the company and its culture well, but I am also familiar with the staff and the management. Therefore, I will not require any induction training. Moreover, I also have a proven performance record. I believe, having a combined experience of training and content writing, I feel that I would be the best fit for this position.

I appreciate your time and consideration.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Yours Faithfully

Kevin
