IELTS General Writing Task 1 with model answer
You should spend about 20 minutes on this task. Write about the following topic
You have a full-time job and are also doing a part-time evening course. You now find that you cannot continue the course.
Write a letter to the tutor. In your letter:
- describe the situation
- explain why you cannot continue at this time
- say what action you would like to take
Write at least 150 words.
I currently work as a Senior Software Engineer for Google, Inc. and I recently enrolled in the part-time evening MBA course at the Carlson School of Management. I am writing to request a change in my enrollment to the distance MBA program due to my conflicting work schedule.
I was recently assigned a project to a client in Australia. I am expected to work during the time that is convenient to the client; and as a result, my work timing has shifted to 2 pm - 1 am. In addition, the project is expected to last for eight months. Hence, I cannot pursue the evening course anymore.
I am sure that I am capable of finishing the assignments and examinations at my own pace. As far as I am concerned, both the programs cost the same. Hence, I believe that it would not cause any issues. If this is not possible, I prefer to drop from the course and claim for a refund of my tuition fees.
I look forward to your response.
