GT Task 1: Letter to the agency to get information about accommodation

IELTS Letter Writing / GT Writing Task 1:

You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.

You will go to a foreign country to stay there for one year, and you need a place to live in. You have decided to write to an agency for accommodation.

Write a letter to the agency to get information about accommodation.

In your letter, say:

  • why you are going to this country
  • what kind of accommodation you want
  • when you will arrive

Write at least 150 words.

You do NOT need to write any addresses.

Begin your letter as follows:

Dear Sir or Madam,

Sample Answer 1:

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am writing to get some details about accommodation in Sydney that your agency can arrange for me.

I have been accepted at Macquarie University in a research-based Master’s degree programme, and I will start my classes next June. I will stay there for one year and my wife will accompany me during my stay there. Therefore, I need a separate accommodation, not the one the university has offered me in its residence hall.

I am looking for a studio apartment that will not cost me more than $1500 per month and is located within the walking distance of the university. It would be ideal if the apartment comes with a fully equipped kitchen and fully furnished rooms with windows that allow natural light and fresh air. It would be a bonus if we can access shopping malls, markets, a park and other public amenities without travelling a long distance.

I will fly to Sydney on 29th May and would highly appreciate it if you can send me details of several accommodations – the kind I am looking for, within the budget.

I am hoping to hear from you soon regarding this.

Yours faithfully,

Avinash Kumar
