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

  • 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

IELTS General Writing # Complaint Letter to Sports Centre Manager

IELTS General Writing # Complaint Letter to Sports Centre Manager

You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.

You are not satisfied with the changing rooms in a sports centre that you visit. Write a letter to the manager:
– What the problem is
– How you feel about the problem
– What steps you want the manager to take
Write at least 150 words.
You do NOT need to write any addresses.
Begin your letter as follows:

Sample Answer

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am writing to express my dissatisfaction with the facilities provided by your sports center located at the MG Road. It has been two years since I and my husband joined this center. We both attend the aerobics classes in the morning and do swimming in the evening.

I want to bring into your notice that the changing rooms in the pool section are not being maintained properly. Firstly, the towels are soiled and even damp sometimes. Secondly, there is a foul smell in the rooms most of the time. It seems as if the area is not cleaned thoroughly and no room freshener is used. We talked with the facilitator before writing to you but the issue was ignored rather than being resolved. Such a response has disappointed us as it is a basic hygiene issue which should have been taken care of immediately after the first complaint.
I would like you to ensure that clean towels are supplied after every swimming session and rooms are cleaned regularly. If the problem of foul smell can also be tackled by installing ventilators, we would be grateful to you.

I look forward to receiving a prompt response.

Yours faithfully
Anju Rawat

General Writing Letter # Traditional Celebration

IELTS General Writing Letter Task 1. You should spend 20 minutes on this task.

There will be a traditional celebration in your country and you want to invite your friend from an English-speaking country. Write him/her a letter and
– invite your friend,
– explain what happens at the party
– describe the tradition and why it’s important in your country
– say why it is important for your friend to be there

Sample Answer:

Dear Anna,

I believe you are doing great. It’s a great pleasure to invite you for the Lohri celebration in my hometown Chandigarh next month on 13th January.

I remember you were eager to see this traditional festival when I shared the photographs of last year’s function with you. As a custom, this festival is celebrated with lots of gusto in Punjab and other North Indian regions on 13th of January every year. The occasion is associated with crop harvesting. It also marks the beginning of financial year for the Punjabi farmers.

The celebration becomes more joyful if there is a new bride or a newborn baby in the family. Since my brother got blessed with a baby boy two months back, the party is going to be really special for us.
Anna, you will love dancing with us on folk beats while putting groundnuts and popcorn into the bonfire. I’ll also get a classical dress designed for you in your favorite Royal Blue color.

Please book the air tickets right away and reach India at least two days prior to the occasion. I just can’t wait to see you!

With love
Harpreet
