GT Task 1: Teach their two children your language for a year

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 ……………,

Sample Answer:

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.

Yours sincerely,

Maria Lucy
