Model Answer 1:

Dear Sir / Madam,

My name is Rona Lyn Olivar. I am currently working as an ICU Nurse (Intensive Care Unit) at a tertiary level and this private hospital is called the Urdaneta City Sacred Heart Hospital which is situated in the province of Pangasinan here in the Philippines. I have learned from our ICU Department that your expert team will be conducted an EKG (Electrocardiogram) thorough training in Singapore. I am writing to you today because I would also like to attend and ask about specific information regarding the seminar schedules, about the program, accommodation and the cost.

Firstly, with regards to dates and time, I would like to ask when will be the seminar held. How many days will it take and how many hours in a day will we have to engage. What time would the training be started and ended?

Secondly, I would also want to know what would be the topic outline of the program, the things we are required to bring something in and what would be the benefits for us Registered nurses who will be attending the seminar.

And finally, I would also like to know about the accommodation and the cost. Since I am living here in the Philippines and Singapore is about 3 1/2 hours from my country and I have no any relatives or friends in that country. Will you be helping us to settle our staying place or do we need to have a booking in a hotel? And also because it is my first time to travel abroad, I do not know how much will I be needing to spend with it.

I am looking forward to hearing from you soon regarding my concerns.

Yours faithfully,
R. Olivar

Write a letter to the person in charge of the seminar and ask for detailed information regarding the dates, program, accommodation and cost.

Answer:
Dear Sir/Madam,

My name is Haris and I am a general practitioner in on of the busiest hospitals in Dubai. It came to my knowledge through one of my friends that your organisation is offering 'Continuous medical education workshops and lectures' related to day to day cases and emergencies management. I am interested in the 'Pain management workshop' which a friend of mine attended last year and he highly recommended this to me. I tried to find details about this from your website and learned that it will be in June but exact dates and location are not mentioned there. As I will be travelling from Dubai to attend the course and need off from the work in advance, I would like to hear the dates and venue so that I can book my schedule accordingly. Secondly, I am also interested in the program outline, topics to be covered, accommodation & travelling arrangement and other related information. This workshop would be more interactive and beneficial to me if I do my homework.

As I will be coming from Dubai, I will highly appreciate if you could recommend any good accommodation (if this is not covered by your organisation), which is nearby or walking distance to the course venue.

Your response is much appreciated and looking forward to an exciting workshop.

Yours sincerely,

Answer:
Dear Sir / Madam,

My name is Aguinaldo Silva and I have been working as a Business Analyst in the sector of Agriculture for the last five years. I am writing to you because this morning I saw an announcement about the seminar you are in charge of about "How the Technology can help to improve the production of Sugar Cane" and I want to get receive further information about.

Firstly, I need to know what I need to do to enrol in the seminar, as also how much it would cost. Another point is that on the announcement there was no specific information about the dates - when it is going to start or about the program (lectures, workshops, networking), I need to have further information about the schedule. Secondly, it is essential to know about the accommodation. As it will be performed at the Grand Hotel in São Paulo, I believe there will be a discount for those who choose to host in the hotel.

I am looking forward to hearing from you about my questions.

Thirdly, whether the accommodation will be included or exclusive? If included, what kind of accommodation it is, how far it will be from the seminar hall and what about the transportation facilities.

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am writing you this letter regarding the advertisement you posted online last week about a profession seminar that you are going to organise and welcomed the mechanical engineers to participate. I work as a mechanical engineer and the seminar's topic and discussion would be very useful for me. However, there are some details that you need to explain to me as the seminar will be held in another country. So, it would be highly appreciated if you answered my inquiries.

Firstly, the seminar is announced to be held in the next month. So, kindly specify the date and schedule in details. Secondly, this is a single day seminar. So it is apparently to be a long stuffed day and a lot of topics will be covered. Should I be worried about that? Is there any preparation required for attending the seminar.? Thirdly and the most importantly, would you arrange the accommodation, food and transportation or those should be arranged individually?

Finally thank you very much for the invitation and I look forward to hearing your reply.

Yours sincerely,
Mohammed.

Dear Sir/ Madam,

I am very happy to learn about your upcoming seminar on "Risk of rural culture in an aggression by urbanisation" and would like to enrol in it. As I was informed, the seminar would be moderated by you and arranged by the UNDP. However, the venue and date are yet to be fixed as it coincided with the UN chief's Dhaka tour.

I am Khalilur Rahman, currently living in Khulna division, a southern part of Bangladesh. I am involved in the part-time teaching profession in a local college in Khulna. To participate in the seminar, it is important for me to know some basic information about it, such as- the seminar date, duration, accommodation arrangement, transportation, type of preparation and tools a participant needs to bring and finally the cost.

In compare to my city, Dhaka is much expensive, I assume. Therefore, I would like to request you to send me the standard cost including accommodation and transportation for the course. Looking forward to hearing from you.

Your faithfully,

Khalilur Rahman.

Dear Madam/Sir,

I am writing this mail to seek information regarding the seminar to be held on HR (Human Resource) by your company in London. I am currently pursuing my career as a Recruiting Officer in one of the well-known company in India.

It would be great, if you could provide me with certain information for my following queries, as I am interested in attending the seminar.

1. When is this seminar going to be held and for how many days?
2. What would be the program covering, how long would be the session and how beneficial would it be for my career?
3. Is there any accommodation provided with the package or each individual needs to arrange it on his own?
4. What will be the overall cost for this seminar (including travel, accommodation etc..)?

It would be a great help for me if you could provide me with the above information, as it's my first ever travel abroad.

Thanking You,

Your's Truly

Dear Sir / Ma'am,

I am Ms Carla de Mesa, a registered nurse assigned to the Operating Room Department in ABC hospital. I heard from a fellow staff that a foreign seminar is going to commence next month. I happened to confirm the news as it was posted on our company website. There was a limited information posted. So I decided to mail you to ask for additional information.

First, where and when it will be held? My schedule is full for the coming month but because I am really interested in attending the event, I need to cancel any of my appointment and inform my partner ahead of the time.

Second, kindly send me a list of the important things needed during the entire program. Do I need to bring my laptop on my own? I attended a local training before and they asked the participants to bring those.

Third, since this is my first time to a foreign country, could you also inform me about all the expenses I will have to bear?

I am hoping to hear from you soon. You can email me at or call at 0325667.

Respectfully,
Carla.

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am writing to inform you that I would like to participate in the work-related seminar which is going to be commenced in Australia. I am currently working as a 'Logistic Executive' in a reputed company and hope this seminar would be advantageous for my future career.

Initially, I would like to get some more information from you before I can confirm my participation. I would like to know the schedule and the program structure of the seminar. I also need to know whether it will be commenced as multiple sessions or a single long session. As I am a Sri Lankan and have never been to that kind of seminars before, I need to know whether you provide the accommodation close to the seminar hall or not. In addition, I should know the cost of the seminar and other expenses which should be incurred by me.

I would be grateful if you can clarify the above particulars as early as possible. I look forward to hearing from you at your earliest.

Yours faithfully,
Dulanjana.

Dear Sir/ Madam,

Since, I am working as a Quality Inspector at Qatar, Doha, and the seminar would be held in another country, I need more details to book my seat. Firstly I and my friends would like to know when and where exactly this symposium is going to be held? Would you please also let me know the hotel, food, transportation and other relevant expenses over there so that I can plan my expenses accordingly. Secondly, as I am working at Qatar, Doha, I would like to know the schedule which would make my journey easier and to arrange leave from my present company. Finally, I would like to get more details about the lecturers, body of language and the contents of the topic.

I think you would be kind enough to let me know those details and a simple email would suffice.

IELTS Letter Question: You would like to participate in a work-related seminar in another country.

Write a letter to the person in charge of the seminar and ask for detailed information regarding the dates, program, accommodation and cost.

Write at least 150 words.
You do NOT need to write any address.

Sample Letter Response:
Dear Sir/ Madam,

I am Vincent Carr, a Civil Engineer, from the Philippines. When I read a local newspaper, I noticed an advertisement about the seminar titled "STAAD Software Design - The Future of Designing". I am very keen in joining this seminar but the advertisement did not state the details of the seminar.

Firstly, what is the schedule of the seminar? How many days will the seminar last? As I am presently working, I need to apply for leaves in advance. Secondly, what are components of the programmes? Is this a Basic STAAD Design seminar or an Advance course for Designers? As I already have some basic knowledge about the software, I would like to attend the advanced course only. Thirdly, it did not mention the course fee! So what other things are included in the package? Lastly, I noticed that the seminar will hold in Singapore. So, is the course fee includes the accommodation or do we need to find our own accommodation.

Hoping for your quick response.

Sincerely Yours,

Vincent Carr.

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am writing to ask about the details on how to join the event you are going to organise and administer. I am willing to participate in the seminar regarding ‘Nurse Anesthetist’ that you will be held in Singapore.

A friend of mine told me about the event, but he does not know the details of this event. I would like to know when the program will be conducted and what will be covered in the event. I wonder if my 5-years hospital experience in 'operating room' will be enough or not.

I would also like to know about the total approximate cost including accommodation and travel cost. Also, please let me know if there is any arrangement of accommodation once I get there or should I manage it independently. Finally, let me know the schedule and duration of the event and the weather condition there during the event period.

Thank you and I am really excited to join this rare event. I am looking forward to your response.

Yours faithfully,
Gasgas Abelgas.

Write a letter to the person in charge of the seminar and ask for detailed information regarding the dates, program, accommodation and cost.

Answer:
Dear Sir/Madam,

I recently received an invitation from your institute about the upcoming world Automobile Seminar which is going to help in Adelaide next month. I have gone through the letter and I have got few questions which I request you to clarify before I can take a decision to travel so far. Firstly, I would like to know about the type of visa assistance and support your institute will provide to the participants like me who will be foreigners to Australia. Secondly, I would like to know about the accommodation facility and if that would be available during the five-day seminar at your arrangement. Thirdly, I need the list of expenses which I need to bear other than the flight fare to Australia.

You can also advise me about prerequisite to attend this the seminar, if there is any. Do I need to bring my personal laptop, books etc if required? The answers for the above queries will help me to better plan my foreign travel in advance.

Expecting a quick reply from your end.

Thanking you
Abhi.

All the samples seems to be okay but not perfect. Did you mean that all the pieces of writing task listed above are able to score a good score? If so what will be the likely score for each of the tasks? In addition, are there any inaccuracies that we have to figure out ourselves or we can follow it blindly??

I would like to know the following details about the seminar, viz: exact timing, venue, participation cost, accommodation arrangements and meals etc.

Dear Mr Jones,

I am writing to inquire about the three days seminar on "Customer Satisfaction" your company will be hosting next month. I came to know about the same through the internet. Through the curriculum of the programme is detailed on the website, it seems like they have dropped the balls at places, making it difficult for me to understand.

Since you are the person in charge for the seminar, I would like to hear from you, when exactly the seminar is expected to start ? As you might know I will be travelling to your country for the first time, where I can find the visa details and requirements?

It would be great if you could explain how this programme will benefit me, I work as front office executive and is bound to deal with new customers on a daily basis. Is this programme intended for just beginners or is it tuned for experienced hands too?

Lastly please acknowledge about the accommodation facilities arranged from your side for the participants, does that involve extra cost? Though my company is sponsoring the seminar for me, I need to give them an estimated total cost involved by next week.

I am quite excited about the programme and really appreciate if you could facilitate things from your side by replying to my above-mentioned concerns at the earliest.

Sincerely,
Dan
