IELTS General Writing Task 1 with model answer
You should spend about 20 minutes on this task. Write about the following topic
An English-speaking friend wants to spend a two-week holiday in your region and has written asking for information and advice.
Write a letter to your friend. In your letter:
- offer to find somewhere to stay
- give advice about what to do
- give information about what clothes to bring
Write at least 150 words.
I hope you are doing great. I am very excited that you are going to spend your holiday here in Minneapolis.
Firstly, you need to make sure that you have a place to stay while you are here. Hotels are quite expensive here. The best place would be The Towers apartments since they have very affordable temporary stay houses, and I can help you out with finding the place. I will reserve a house under your name.
There are a number of places that you can visit here. My favourite place is The Grandma's, a water world. Also, don't forget to see The Mall of America, as it is the largest mall in the country. Apart from these, you can also visit Lake Calhoun, which is the largest freshwater lake. Don't miss the fireworks in the 2nd Street, Downtown, held every Second Saturday!
Please do not forget to bring a snow jacket as it snows heavily during the month you would be here. In addition to the jacket, you would also need snowshoes, mufflers, and a scarf.
Hope to hear from you soon. Don't hesitate to contact me if you need help.
