GT Task 1: You have decided to sell your car

IELTS Letter Writing / GT Writing Task 1:

You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.

You have a friend who has always liked the car you currently drive. Now you have decided to sell the car. You think your friend might be interested in buying it.

Write a letter to this friend. In your letter,

  • say why you want to sell your car
  • describe the condition of the car
  • invite the friend to come and see the car himself/herself someday

Write at least 150 words.

You do NOT need to write any addresses.

Begin your letter as follows:

Dear ………………,

Sample Answer:

Dear Mike,

I haven’t heard from you in a while. So, how are you?  By the way, do you still like my car? Well, I’m asking because I’m actually planning to sell my current car, which you’ve always liked, and I thought that I’d rather sell it to you instead of some strangers.

I’ve decided to purchase an SUV car as I need to frequently travel to my grandmother’s house where the roads are a bit bumpy. So I would sell my current sedan car and go for an SUV.

With regard to the car I want to sell, it’s still in good condition, even though I’ve driven it for almost 2 years. In fact, its engine is still very smooth, with almost no sound when it starts, while its air conditioning system is also very much intact. Besides, you’ll hardly find any scratch on its shiny exterior. And as for its interior, I have recently changed all the seat covers of my car, so it essentially looks like new.

I guess that you’ve already got some sort of ideas about the condition of my car from my description, but if you’re really interested to buy this car, please better drop by my house sometime next week and see the car yourself.

Warm wishes
