IELTS General Writing Task 1 (Letter Writing)

You are a student at a language school in New Zealand studying Business English. Part of the course is a summer work placement programme. Unfortunately, you have just learnt from the school that this programme has now been cancelled.

Write a letter to the School Principal. In your letter:

  • state your reason for writing
  • describe the problem and your concerns
  • explain what you would like the Principal to do.

Here's a sample answer

Dear Sir/Madam,
I am writing this letter to express my annoyance with the news which I received that our school has terminated the summer work placement programme which was a very important part of the course I am studying right now.

The main problem that I have now is that I will have to look for placements myself when the course is completed. This was not on my agenda earlier since the school was taking care of the placements, but now I will have to visit all the places and seek work on my own. This will consume a lot of precious time and I will also have to spare money to travel from one place to the other. This will be much more difficult for me since I am not from New Zealand and do not know a lot of places where I can get jobs.

I enrolled for this course and paid the fee for this service as well. But, now since this is not being provided, I request you to kindly refund the part of the fee I had paid at the time of admission. Also, it would be great if the school can provide a list of employers where I can go and ask for a job. Plus, in order to commute, please give us permission to use the school's transport so that we do not have to spend a lot of money and we do not get lost in this foreign country.

Eagerly awaiting your reply.

Yours faithfully,
Gurnirmaan Singh
