IELTS GT Task 1: Letter to the campsite manager

IELTS General Training Task 1: an information letter

You should spend 20 minutes on this task.
You want to go camping for a week with a group of friends.

Write a letter to the campsite manager. In your letter
• ask them to send you some information about the campsite
• find out about the cost
• give information about your likely arrival time

Write at least 150 words.
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.
