IELTS Writing – Model Answer for a letter (from a recent exam in Israel)

The topic below was seen in a General Training IELTS exam in Israel, November 2011.

General Training Writing Task 1 IELTS model letter

You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.

Write a letter to a manufacturer to ask them to arrange production of a new item for you. Please say

– What item do you need?
– Why do you need it?

You should write at least 150 words.

Model Answer

To the engineering team at Quanta Manufacturing,

I am writing to you to request the production of a new bicycle chain that fits our Go Cycle model. Allow me to go into a bit of detail regarding the situation on our side.

Basically, we here at Sports World have received numerous customer complaints that the chains on our Go Cycles snap too quickly. As you can imagine, this has done little to support our brand positioning as a supplier of quality mountaineering goods.

After testing the chains, we realized that their defectiveness is due to their being made of subpar steel. Thus from this day forward, we would like you to manufacture Go Cycle chains using the highest grade of steel available to you. We realize this will affect the price and accept any new quotation you provide within reason. Thank you for your understanding.

Your professional partner,

Ryan
Head of Purchasing
Sports World

IELTS Writing – Model Answer for a letter (from a recent exam in the USA)

The topic below was seen in a General Training IELTS exam in the USA, September 2011.

General Training Writing Task 1

You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.

You are preparing an event in the countryside. Write a letter to your friend and ask for help with the arrangements. In your letter include:

– what the event is
– why the event is being held
– what arrangements have already been made
– how your friend can help

You should write at least 150 words.

Model Answer

Dear Patrick,

I hope you and your wife have been enjoying your summer holiday. My wife and I have started pulling together plans for this year’s company barbecue. I am writing to share some details regarding the event and ask whether you would be able to help with a few of the remaining tasks.

As you know, the barbecue has become a highly anticipated annual tradition for everyone at our company. This year, the meet up is going to be held in Paxton Park, behind the church on Gladsdale Avenue and Riverside Street. My wife has reserved a rented canopy in case of rain and we are planning on getting the Texan restaurant Bubba’s to cater food and drinks. However, we feel a little strapped for time considering we still have a handful of errands to finish before the big day.

Thus, I was hoping you could find time to complete and distribute the invitations. I think any basic invitation template on your computer should suit. I can email you the guest list this evening. Please let me know as soon as you can whether this would be possible or not.

Many thanks,
Ryan
