GT Task 1: Write to a friend in the hospital telling him about the match

IELTS Letter Writing / GT Writing Task 1:

You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.

You play a team sport with some friends. Last week a member of the team had an accident and wasn’t able to play with you at the weekend. You decide to write to him/her in the hospital, telling him/her about the match.

Write a letter to your friend. In your letter,

  • tell him/her which team won
  • say how you felt about the match
  • ask how he/she is doing

You should write at least 150 words.

You do NOT need to write any addresses.

Begin your letter as follows:

Dear ……………….,

Sample Answer 1:

Dear Joseph,

I was quite horrified by the news that you broke your leg during the practice session and got admitted to a hospital. I am writing to wish you a quick recovery and to let you know that we have won the match.

Without your presence, the team was discouraged and we missed you. However, we wanted to win the match and bring the trophy to our college this year. Muller and Gordon both scored and we won by 1 goal and the final score was 3-2. The final match was nerve-racking and we were lucky to have our usual composure. Everyone talked about you before the game and I felt your absence too.

I have not been able to meet you in the hospital and I am planning to do it first thing on Monday. How are you doing? I hope the broken bones are not much severe. Take rest, and stay relaxed. You are in our prayers.

I am hoping to talk to you in person soon.

Warm regards,


Sample Answer 2:

Dear Conor,

I really pray and hope that you are trying to remain positive and high-spirited after your accident. And, please also know that you have always been in the thoughts and prayers of our whole team since we heard about your shocking accident.

Anyway, I think that this particular news is going to elate you and your spirit in a big way – our team has won against the “Brother’s Union” club in the last match which took place a couple of days ago. Our whole team surely missed you in the match, since you were one of our most experienced and valued players, but the win against tough opposition like the Brother’s Union Club felt really sweet to all of our team members. Besides, I felt that it was a complete win for our team since we played properly in all departments, including ball passing and saving many corner kicks.

So, how long more do you need to stay at the hospital? We are still not sure about the extent of damage or injury to your left leg. So, have you got the final X-ray report of your fracture? Wishing to have you among us soon.

Warm regards,
