IELTS General Writing Task 1 with model answer

You should spend about 20 minutes on this task. Write about the following topic

You are attending an evening course at a college. Write a letter to the administrator of the college. In your letter, say: 

  1. What do you like about the course? 
  2. What problems do you face in the course (eg. bad equipment)? 
  3. What is your suggestion to improve the course?

Write at least 150 words. 

You do NOT need to write any addresses. 

Begin your letter as follows: Dear Sir,

Model Answer:

Dear Sir, 

I am a student of your institution. I am writing to give you feedback on the evening Computer Basics class. 

Firstly, I adore the professionalism of the faculties which has undeniably facilitated me to step up my game in gaining knowledge about computer systems. Apart from that, I find the office hours on the weekend very useful and have used them multiple times to clear my doubts in the subject. 

However, there are a few complications that disturb my studies quite often. For instance, the wireless keyboard frequently becomes dysfunctional only to drop the pace of my typing which is pivotal to excel in the course. Besides, the monitor screen malfunctions every 15-20 minutes.  

Hence, I strongly recommend to supplant the obsolete electronic models with the latest ones. I sincerely hope that my urge will get your heed and that the necessary steps would be taken to improve the facilities. 

Yours faithfully, 

Sam Woods.
