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

Writing Task 1: Letter to the manager regarding parking facility problem

parking-facility Best IELTS Band 7 Coaching in Dehradun

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

IELTS Writing: Letter to a Friend Best IELTS Band 7 Coaching in Dehradun

Sample Answer

Dear Steffi,
I was glad to see your letter after a long time. I am sorry I couldn’t reply earlier as I went to Japan to spend holidays with my aunt. We returned last week. I am happy to know that you consider me a person whose advice can help you to adjust in a new environment.

I believe, in order to feel comfortable at a new place, you should start exploring all interesting places nearby. Be humble to the people you encounter with. Try to initiate dialogue with them, instead of waiting for them to be friendly. Then, share your contact number so that you can invite them to spend some quality time together. You can also join some clubs or hobby classes, where you can find people having the similar interests like you. In school, try to participate in some group activities for understanding your classmates. While doing such activities, you can also share your thoughts with them.

I hope you get some help from this letter to deal with the situation. I really miss the wonderful time we spent together in school. Keep writing so that we can carry forward this special bond of friendship for lifetime. (198 words)
Best Wishes,
Maria

IELTS Cue Card # Describe your favorite way to relax.

IELTS Speaking Task Cue Card

Describe your favorite way to relax.

  • what it is
  • how effective it is for you
  • when and how you relax

and explain why you like this way of relaxation  

SAMPLE ANSWER-

Today, in this mechanized world, workload can make us feel a little relentless. For this reason taking leisure time for oneself is extremely crucial. Due to different interests of most of the people, they prefer to indulge themselves in various sort of hobbies. Here, I would want to talk about gardening, which is the most effective way to relax for me.    

 Time spent gardening helps calm my mind, soothes ragged emotions and boost my ability to focus on the positive aspects of life. The sound of creatures present in the garden helps me detach from everyday agony and contemplate on the present moment for the time being. Though it is said to be an orthodox mode of relaxing, it’s can be really soothing if it interests you. Gardening is considered as the best way for therapy in several western countries as well.    

I was lucky enough to live in a place with a garden of our own. Since my childhood, interrupting my parents while they were gardening fascinated me. Soon this habit developed into a hobby. Whenever I don’t feel like myself, I visit a nursery to get plants to renovate my garden. The fragrance of the freshly watered plants eliminates my tension.  

The reason why I like this way of relaxation is that I can leave life related issues outside the garden. Gardening also helps reduce cortisol in my body as we are in peaceful company of nature. The sound of butterflies and birdsong, the color of leaves, and the aroma of flowers are captivating for me and it refreshes my mind greatly.
