IELTS General Writing Task 1 with model answer
You should spend about 20 minutes on this task. Write about the following topic
You have seen an advertisement in an English newspaper for a job working in the City Museum shop during the holidays. You decide to apply for the job.
Write a letter to the director of the museum. In your letter,
- introduce yourself
- explain what experience and special skills you have
- explain why you are interested in the job
Write at least 150 words.
I am writing to apply for the holiday job which you advertised recently in the “Times Of India” newspaper. I am a twenty-one-year-old English speaking student and at present, I am in my second year studying History at Lincoln College; plus I am very keen to have a holiday job this summer.
My current session will finish by the end of May and I am free until the end of August. Last year, I worked as a tourist guide and enjoyed it very much. I would like to have the opportunity to meet people and practice my English speaking skills again.
I enjoy going to museums and I am particularly keen on history. Last summer I went to a historical exhibition of Ancient Greek objects which was held in London. I have often been in your museum and I am familiar with the items you have. I will be a great asset to your museum shop.
I do hope you will be interested in my application. I look forward to hearing from you.
