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

– when and where the party is

Sample Answer

Dear Gagan,

I believe you receive this letter in pink health and high spirit. I’m writing to invite you for a reunion party on next Sunday, 12th May, at Den’s Cafeteria in Defence Colony, Dehradun.
It’s been 6 years since we completed our graduation. Sadly, most of us haven’t met each-other for a long time. Everyone got busy with their careers and personal life after college, making it difficult to stay in touch with fellow students.
It’s quite understandable. Life is very demanding these days. Having a fine balance between work and personal life is almost impossible. I’ve been working as an assistant professor in Graphic Era University, Dehradun for the past 3 years. Final exams are just over and I thought of using this opportunity to organize a small reunion party for all our batchmates.
I have made all the arrangements which include a few games, followed by dance and dinner. We shall reach the venue by 6 pm and then enjoy together till late. I hope this time is convenient to you.
See you on the 12th of May!

Yours lovingly
Vishal

IELTS INFORMAL LETTER #APOLOGIZING TO A FRIEND

IELTS INFORMAL LETTER #APOLOGIZING TO A FRIEND

You were supposed to receive a friend at the airport. But, for some reasons you are unable to do so. Write a letter to your friend. In your letter
– explain why you can’t come,
– guide them regarding other options to get to your home,
– describe the plans/visits you made to show them around when your friend arrives.

Sample Answer

Dear Sushmita,

I believe your preparations to come to India are in full swing. I am eagerly waiting to see you on Thursday evening. As discussed earlier, I had promised to collect you from the airport but unfortunately I would not be able to keep my words due to an unplanned official meeting.

Just yesterday my boss informed me about an urgent meeting of foreign delegates that will take place on the coming Thursday, the day of your arrival. I have been asked to give a presentation too. In this case, it won’t possible for me to reach the airport as we had planned earlier. Don’t worry. The airport has an excellent taxi service. My suggestion for you would be to take a cab from the airport to reach my home. You can book a cab online or hire one from outside the airport.

I just can’t wait to see you and I have planned many things for your stay. I have reserved seats for a get-together with our college friends in the ‘Memories Café on Friday evening. On Saturday, we would go shopping and enjoy the street food of Delhi. We will plan the rest of days as per your preferences.

I Look forward to seeing you soon! (207 Words)

Yours lovingly,
Kritika

  • tell them what you enjoyed the most about the holiday
  • explain you are sending photos of the holiday with the letter

Dear Avinash,

The memories of the time spent together with you last month still makes me and everyone with whom I share jovial. Your company made the escapade have a life time imprint on me and there is no way as big to thank you for being an amazing host.

The mundane routine of my work life called for the holiday to Darjeeling and so I packed my bag and informed you so hastily. I had planned only a day visit to your house and the rest to be a lone discovery. However, on reaching your place, the warm welcome that I received from you and your wife, filled me with joy. Moreover, Darjeeling is one of the best places I have ever been to and you surely live in heaven. The amazing sun rise at Tiger Hill, the bonfire at your place and toy train ride that we had together was remarkable.

I am sending you with this letter the photographs of the beautiful time that we spent together. Hoping to have many more holidays with you all.

Love
