IELTS Letter Writing / GT Writing Task 1:
You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.
You have seen an advertisement from a couple, who live in Australia, for someone to teach their two children your language for a year.
Write a letter to the couple. In your letter
- explain why you think you would be suitable for the job
- say what else you could do for the family
- give your reasons for wanting the job
Write at least 150 words.
You do NOT need to write any addresses.
Begin your letter as follows:
Dear Mr and Mrs Henry,
Recently, I came across an advertisement, in which you have asked for someone from Spain to teach the Spanish language to your two children. I have decided to apply for it because the opportunity would help me meet the cost of running an orphanage in a remote village of the war-torn country in Latin America while also exploring the beautiful continent of Australia at the same time.
In my defence of availing this opportunity, I would like to say that I have a bubbly and easy-going personality which makes it rather easy for me to relate to the children. Besides, I have also done babysitting jobs to help a few relatives of mine to take care of their children and received some formal training on first-hand experience in childcare. I have also finished a diploma in teaching young children because I am passionate about teaching them.
In addition to taking care of your children, I could also prepare some delicious Spanish food and delicacies on some special occasions to surprise your friends and families.
I am hoping that you would offer me the job. Thank you in advance.
