IELTS Letter Writing / GT Writing Task 1:
You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.
You are planning a holiday abroad and will be visiting a town where an old friend lives. You haven’t spoken to this friend in a few years.
Write a letter to your friend. In your letter,
- give a brief update of your life since you were last in touch
- explain why you will be travelling to his/her town
- say what you plan to do when you visit his/her town
Write at least 150 words.
You do NOT need to write any addresses.
Begin your letter as follows:
Not sure exactly when I heard from you the last time, but it must have been at least a few years since we spoke to each other. You’d be glad to know that I’ve switched to a different job as a Senior Accounting Manager which actually allows me to roam around different places instead of doing something just by sitting at a desk. Besides, I also run a small café now during the weekend, right across the market near the new stadium, which you saw being built last time you visited me.
Now about the reason why I am exactly writing to you. Actually, I will be visiting your town early next month to help my youngest uncle move with all of his stuff because he got a new job there. Oh, I hope that you can still remember my youngest uncle with some “limited mobility” issue.
However, when I visit your town, I’d also like to enjoy that famous horse race which takes place every year. Besides, I would also like for you to take me to the open street market while I’m there. So, hope to see you soon!
