General Training Writing Task 1 Sample 91 - You need to take some time off work and want to ask your manager

IELTS Letter Writing / GT Writing Task 1:

You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.

You are working for a company. You need to take some time off work and want to ask your manager about this.

Write a letter to your manager. In your letter:

  • explain why you want to take time off work
  • give details of the amount of time you need
  • suggest how your work could be covered while you are away.

Write at least 150 words.

Sample Answer 1:

Dear Mr Maclarins,

I am writing to ask for a week off from my work. As you know that I am still preparing for my PhD in Surveying beside my work in the evening.

The main aim of taking one week off is to prepare and set for my final exams. Thus after considering this issue and after organizing the tasks that I am in charge of, I would like to inform you that I rely on Jack for this responsibility. He will be covering my duties during my absence from April 15 to April 22.

I would appreciate if you could be helpful and understanding. Since I am satisfied with my job for your company, I look forward to accomplishing great improvements in my work for the future of our company.

Moreover, as I believe on Jack’s abilities to accomplish the work effectively, I hope that you don’t mind providing me with unpaid leave till I hand over my exams papers.

Thank you in advance for considering my situation.

Yours Sincerely,

Naji Lichaa

"I look forward to" is the correct one.

I think the complex preposition 'in charge of' written by mistake ' in charge off' in the above sample.

Hi Anirarsalan,
It was indeed a mistake. However, this has been amended now.
