Sample Answer

Dear Mrs Thompson,
Hope you are well and healthy. I have been thinking of writing for a long time but could not due to a hectic schedule.
I have recently applied for the job of an English teacher in Thailand. As you may be aware I am very fond of teaching and I always considered it my passion. Having completed my graduation, I came across this opportunity and applied for it at that very moment.
I had a Skype interview as it was not possible for me to travel all the way to Thailand just for an interview. However, it went very well and I was offered the position. Will you be kind enough to write me a reference letter for this job? Please can you include information in relation to my character, behavior and trustworthiness.
Teaching is something that I always wanted to do and I always look up to you as a role model and I’ll like to teach in the same manner as you. It is a once in a lifetime opportunity. It will not only give me a chance to pave my way in the world of teaching but also enable me to learn about new cultures and tradition. Lastly, can you please mail me the letter within 10 days as I need to post it to Bangkok.

Thanking you in advance and looking forward to hear from you.

Yours sincerely
Shashi tharoor

Sample Answer

Dear Kanye,
Finally after waiting for ages for my visa, I received it in the mail day before yesterday. I am glad to let you know that I’ll be leaving for Canada on 3rd November and it’d be pretty helpful if you can get your old pal of the airport. The feedback you gave me on maritime engineering and the career prospects seemed too irresistible so, after extensive research I decided on the same course. As you must be well aware I have enrolled in the same university as yours however, I’ll be studying at a different campus.
I had a few things in mind that can be taken care of before I arrive there. I’d really appreciate it if you can help a brother land a part time job. It’s pretty expensive in Toronto and I’d like to be more self dependent so I think it’s high time I start working and managing my finances. Also the dormitory will be available from the 6th so would you be able to accommodate me for a couple of days?
You can ask your employer or maybe some friends of yours can recommend me at their workplace. From what I’ve read on the net, the format of C.V is quite different too so I’ll mail you my resume and can you please help me edit it accordingly? The local newspapers dish out recruitment ads too. Maybe you can have a look there and let me know if something worthy comes up.
I look forward to seeing you soon and hopefully we’ll create some more rap music like the good old days. (267 Words)
Take care

IELTS GT Task 1: Letter to the campsite manager

You want to go camping for a week with a group of friends.

• ask them to send you some information about the campsite

You do NOT need to write any addresses.
Begin your letter as follows:
Dear Sir or Madam,

Sample Answer:

Dear Sir or Madam,
I have recently found out about your ‘Summer Peak’ Adventure camp through a leaflet in the Local Newspaper.

My friends and I are curious to know more about the facilities provided along with a little elaboration on what the included specials such as ‘River Rafting’, ‘Mountain trekking’, ‘Wood exploration’ and ‘Natural Craft’ include. We also have some other basic inquiries on the campsite, for instance: how large the campsite is, if the meals provided are inclusive to the package and how far away this campsite is from the nearest airport.

Another question is regarding the cost of our stay. The deals mentioned were only for smaller groups, but we are be a group of 7 people staying for a week and we are guessing we would require two ‘family tents’. Since we are students, could you also include the student discount offer mentioned? We will come in our summer holidays, preferably during the first week of June.

My friends and I look forward to hearing from you as well as coming to stay at your summer camp.
Yours sincerely,
Amit N.

Dear Manish,

In the near future, I will be taking five days sick leave for a dental restoration. My leaves start from 28 September till 4 October. It has now become the need of the hour as I am facing trouble while speaking and the pain has become quite unbearable.

Even after the leaves, the doctor has suggested me to speak less for at least a month and so I won’t be able to do the customer calling section of my job. However, I can still continue with the backend work and handle the social media along with the other nitty-gritty aspects of my job.

It would be a great help if you if you could hire someone from contractual account to help in interacting with the new customers for a month. Otherwise, I would have to take a No Pay leave.
