IELTS Letter Writing / GT Writing Task 1:

You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.

You want to learn a language. A teacher who teaches this language lives near the area where you live.

Write a letter to the teacher. In your letter,

  • say how you came to know about him/her
  • explain why you want to learn this language
  • ask what help he/she can offer

Write at least 150 words.

You do NOT need to write any addresses.

Begin your letter as follows:

Dear ………………..,

Sample Answer: 

Dear Mrs Ichika,

My name is Fiona Gilbert, and I am writing this letter to you with the hope that I will be able to receive some help from you with regard to learning the Japanese language.  Oh, in case you are wondering, one of my good friends, who helped you find a new place for you to live a few months ago, actually gave me the information about you. 

I want to learn this language mainly because I am planning to move to Japan after a year to do an internship in Industrial Engineering so that I can get some first-hand experience in the advanced engineering process and technologies.  In fact, doing this internship in Japan will offer me a definite edge over the others as far as getting a better job opportunity in the engineering sector is concerned, especially, in my country. 

Now, I am aware of the fact that you are probably too busy to help me with the Japanese language, but I would really appreciate some of your precious time per week to learn this language.  Also, please provide me with some specific instructions on how to best master this language easily.

I hope to hear a positive reply from you soon.

Yours sincerely,

Fiona Gilbert.
