IELTS General Writing Task 1 with model answer
You should spend about 20 minutes on this task. Write about the following topic
You have spent a week with a friend on holiday. When you got home, you realised you had left your wallet there.
Write a letter to your friend. In your letter:
- thank for holiday
- explain that you left your wallet
- give instructions of how to send it back
Write at least 150 words.
I hope this letter finds you well. I am back home after having spent the most enjoyable holiday with you. We had a wonderful time and I truly appreciate your hospitality. The children cannot stop talking about how much they enjoyed the company of your kids. In fact, they have already begun to plan their next holiday with you.
I have just realized that my wallet is missing and I am pretty certain that I left it in your house. If my memory serves me right, I had kept it on the top drawer of the white cabinet in the room that we had stayed in your house. Could you please check and let me know if you find it? My wallet has all my bank cards and my driving license; therefore it is imperative that I get it back as soon as possible.
My friend Tanya is travelling to Dubai tomorrow and will be back in four days. Would you kindly hand over my wallet to her? Her contact number is 989-243-549; I have relayed your number to her too. I would really appreciate it if you could coordinate with her and decide on a meeting place and time, as convenient to both of you.
Thanking you in advance for your help.
