IELTS General Writing Task 1 with model answer
You should spend about 20 minutes on this task. Write about the following topic
Your neighbours have recently written to you to complain about the noise from your house / flat.
Write a letter to your neighbors. In your letter,
- explain the reasons for the noise
- describe what action you will take
Write at least 150 words.
I am writing to apologize for the inconvenience being caused to you owing to the disturbance coming from my house. My kitchen was in need of urgent repair, so I hired a local builder for it; however, he has turned out to be quite unprofessional. Although work could have been done in the day time, the builder needed my presence in evening in order to understand the plan.
Unfortunately, because of lack of knowledge, the builder is taking too much time to complete the work. I know you will be up in arms over the noise from my house, and I am really sorry for all the trouble and distress you are facing in the evening.
I completely understand that you need to relax after a hectic day. As the kitchen work is still unfinished, I have decided that I will hire a professional builder and get the work done in the day-time.
Once again I am extremely sorry for all the trouble.
