IELTS Cue Card Sample 162 - Describe a letter you wrote to someone

IELTS Speaking Part 2: IELTS Cue Card/ Candidate Task Card.

Describe a letter you wrote to someone.

You should say:

  • Who did you write?
  • What did you write?
  • Why did you write?

and explain why this letter was important to you.

Model Answer 1:
With the convenient of internet and email facility, we hardly write hand-written letters but I did not have the internet facility until I become 14 years old. I was admitted in a renowned school when I was a 10 years old and had to stay at the school boarding during my study there. I was sad to leave my parents and siblings but had no other choice other than staying at the boarding as the school did not accept stay-home students. After I left my home and start my life in the school boarding, I missed my family very much. I would like to describe a letter that I wrote to my mother while my staying at the boarding. 

I wrote the letter to my mother and I wrote to let her know that I was fine and not to worry about me. I also wrote how much I was missing them and how things were going on in my school life. I also asked how my father was doing, if he had mentioned me, what my brother and sister are doing these days and if they are missing me. I remember asking a lot of questions in my letter and told all the positive things about my new life so that my mother does not worry too much. 
 
I wrote about my teachers, new classmates and how welcoming they are. I mentioned that I like the foods they are serving and I am doing my study attentively. That was a letter written by a little boy (..mention girl if you are a girl…) to his (…her..) mother to let her know that he (..she…) was fine and asked if they were missing him (…her..) or not. 
To me, this was an important letter as this was the first time I wrote to my mother. I wrote to let her know that I love them very much and was missing them. I was bit lonely at that time and the letter was a form of conversation and to keep in touch with my dearest mother and other family members.
