IELTS General Writing Task 1 with model answer
You should spend about 20 minutes on this task. Write about the following topic
A friend has offered you some work in his company. You are currently employed and not able to start for 3 months.
Write a reply to your friend. In your letter:
- give details of what you know about his company.
- explain your current situation
- give your answer to the offer and explain why
Write at least 150 words.
I am obliged to you for offering me the job opportunity in your software company ‘White Way Web’. I am very well aware that your company has grown in leaps and bounds; thus, I am on cloud nine since I received the offer letter.
However, I regret to inform you that at present I am working on three month long project in Infotech Solutions; as a result, I am unable to join White Way Web straightaway. Even I can’t leave the burden of the project on other team members too because I am the key person who knows the project from top to bottom.
I am very pleased with the offer because the salary package and other terms and conditions which you are offering me are far better than what my current employer is giving. If there is no urgency to fill the vacant post then I request you to please accept my application for the same post after three months.
I hope you will understand my situation. I am looking forward to hearing from you.
