IELTS General Writing Task 1 (Letter Writing)
You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.
There is a public event coming up in your town. Write a letter to your friend who you think would be interested to take part in it.
In your letter, you should:
- describe the event
- explain why you think he/she would be interested in it
- suggest an arrangement to meet there with him/her.
Here's a sample answer
How are you? I am glad to hear about you graduating with first division from high school. I am sure you will succeed in life as always.
I am sure you must have heard about the music festival being organized by our local council at our community centre on 20th August 2021. It is for a 4day event and a lot of renowned artists will be performing. On the first day, the local bands will be performing from 7.00pm to 10.30pm in front of at least 500 audiences. Day two will have bands with international experience showcasing their talent. The third day is kept for some traditional artists playing their community music in particular. On the last day, there would be an award ceremony that will recognize the best talents in the music festival.
I still remember your keen interest in country music. It would be great to see you performing at the festival and stand a chance to win the best new band in town award this year. Firstly, participating in the festival will not only give you exposure but will also sharpen your vocal skills. Also, this event aims to highlight some best performances by local bands which will help you to further take music as a career option. Moreover, Your favorite bands are also participating, so if you want to see Beatles, One Republic and Green Day perform live, you should definitely come over.
It is a great opportunity for us to meet there as we have not seen each other for 2months. This festival will be an exciting occasion to re-live our school days and cherish our memories of attending music concerts together. I have already bought the tickets for North Pavilion second row so that we can enjoy the show to the fullest.
Looking forward to meeting you there.
