IELTS Letter Writing / GT Writing Task 1:

The manager at the company you work for is going to retire next month. The manager’s assistant has invited some suggestions about what kind of event they should do to say goodbye to him.

Write a letter to your manager’s assistant. In your letter,

  • say what kind of event you have in your mind

  • what kind of present can be given to your manager

Write at least 150 words.

You do NOT need to write any addresses.

Begin your letter as follows:

Dear Mr / Mrs……………,

Sample Answer:

Dear Linda,

Thank you for taking me into confidence to request some suggestions from my end regarding how to send a befitting farewell and “goodbye” to our manager, Mr Oliver. Well, while I have rather limited experience in these kinds of things, I would surely like to offer some suggestions in order to throw a successful farewell party for our manager at a nice hotel- preferably at Grand Boutique Party Centre and Hotel. I think a buffet lunch would be deserving and suitable.

Our manager deserves this kind of party because he truly has been an inspirational leader throughout the years through his hard works and diligence. Besides, his contributions to our overall marketing strategy and the daily operation of the department have ensured phenomenal growth for our company. But, what I really like the most about him is that he has never given up on any of his subordinates and instead has always taken personal initiatives to help us do better at our jobs.

By the way, I have some great gift ideas for our favourite outgoing manager, including a nice looking, leather-made executive bag, a branded wristwatch and a metal desktop clock and finally, a pencil holder.

Anyway, that is all the suggestions I have for you now. Let me know what you think of them.

Yours sincerely,

Oscar Leo.
