A very kind IELTS test taker from Canada (thanks, CM!) remembered the following questions from his recent exam:

Writing test

Writing task 1 (a letter)

You and a friend recently went on a holiday together. There is a problem with the photos you have taken during the holiday. Write a letter to your friend to ask for a particular photo. In your letter,

– Tell him/her about the problem with your photos
– Say which photo you would like him/her to send you
– Explain why you need this photo.

Writing task 2 (an essay)
