Dear Sir/Madam,

IELTS WRITING LETTER : The Local council in your city. It has decided to demolish an old historical building to build a software company.

Sample Answer:

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am writing to express my dissatisfaction with the Local Council’s decision to pull down the old Heritage Centre of Mussoorie.

This building has been a historic landmark of our area for over 150 years. It has a huge collection of paintings and artefacts. Most of them were handcrafted by skilled craftsmen who worked tirelessly for the development of our town. The centre used to be a popular tourist attraction, but because of the negligence of the Local Council it has lost its popularity.

I understand that the building is in a dilapidated state. Certainly, the proposed software company will generate more employment opportunities for people living in this region. Nevertheless, this progress will be at the expense of losing one of the oldest historic landmarks of Mussoorie. Somehow, it seems unacceptable to me.

I believe that the Heritage Centre can be restored and put to good use for the local community. The Council can use it as a community centre or traditional skills learning centre for the locals. As far as the fundraising is concerned, I hope that volunteers would gladly come forward to devote some time for this noble cause. In addition, the Council can contact local companies to donate small funds for preserving this historic building.

I hope that the Local Council of Mussoorie reconsiders its decision of destroying the Heritage Centre and finds a different site for building the software company.

Yours faithfully,

Savan Sharma

Dear Sir or Madam,


IELTS Writing: Letter to the railway company to report a lost item. Describe the item. Explain where and when you left it.

Sample Answer

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am writing to report the loss of a valuable personal item on one of your trains.

The item is a navy blue laptop bag with the brand name ‘American Express’ embossed on the front. It has two zipped compartments. In one of the compartments I had kept my 15-inch Dell laptop. My passport, adaptor, mobile charger and some official documents were also inside.

Last Saturday, 15th March, I boarded the 2:30 pm train from Shimla to New Delhi. If I recall correctly, I was in the fourth carriage sitting near the front. I had kept the laptop bag in the overhead space. The long journey left me exhausted and while getting down, I forgot to take the bag with me.

Could you please let me know if a laptop bag of this description has been found? My phone number is 0091 7889898999. If you have it, please keep it in a safe place and I will make arrangements to collect it at your earliest convenience.

Thank you for your time.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours faithfully,

Sally Rana

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.

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
