We have already looked at how to write a letter giving suggestions and making a complaint. In this free lesson we are going to study how to approach a letter in which you have to make a request.
Here is an IELTS General Training Writing Task 1 prompt (instruction):
You stayed at your friend’s house when you participated in a conference in a different city. You left a file with important documents in your friend’s house. Write a letter to your friend. In your letter:
Begin your letter as follows: ‘Dear…...,’
Before you write anything you need to break the question down and plan your response. In the test this should take you around 5 minutes. The more time you spend planning the better you will write.
