You live in a room in a college where you share with another student - GT Writing Task 1: Sample 40

IELTS Letter Writing / GT Writing Task 1:

You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.

You live in a room in a college where you share it with another student. You find it very difficult to study and work there because your roommate always has friends visiting. He/she has parties in the room and sometimes borrows your things without asking you.

Write a letter to the Accommodation Officer at the college and ask for a new room next term. You would prefer a single room and explain your reasons.

Write at least 150 words.

You do NOT need to write any addresses.

Begin your letter as follows:

Dear Sir or Madam,

Model Answer 1:

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am writing to inform you that I wish to move into a new accommodation next term, preferably in a single room, as I find my current sharing arrangement quite inconvenient. My roommate has made it harder for me to concentrate on my studies and I am hoping you would help me sort it out.

Due to my roommate’s inconsiderate behaviour, I find it troublesome to live in my room, let alone study properly. For one thing, he has friends visiting him every single day, for another, he regularly holds parties and listens to music loudly. In addition, he often borrows my belongings without my permission. A few days ago he took a book from my desk and lost it which I borrowed from the college library. Due to his irrational behaviours, I find it challenging to concentrate on my studies and live peacefully.

I am expecting your help to move into a room of my own, where I will be free from such distractions. I would be grateful if you could find a single room for me near the college campus from the beginning of next term. I will be always indebted to you.

Yours faithfully,

Richard Heer

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am writing to request you to allow me to move into another room, preferably to a single room, from next term as I find my current accommodation arrangement quite inconvenient.

I enrolled in the B. Tech course in your college last January and currently sharing my room, 308, with a fellow mate who is also pursuing the same course. My roommate brings his friends almost every day and holds frequent parties. It not only hinders my studies but also breaches my privacy. He often borrows my things without asking and he even lost a valuable item last month. His activities are not friendly and I find it hard to concentrate on my studies due to his irrational behaviours.

My father, despite his financial crunch, did arrange for my higher studies in this reputed college. It is my moral responsibility not to lose the sight of the dreams which have been conceived in the eyes of my parents. The latest incident wherein he borrowed my laptop without my permission forced me to bring these issues to your attention.

In view of all these undesirable and uncomfortable situations, I once again humbly request you to allow me a new room next term, preferably a single room.

Yours faithfully,

Kim Neeraj

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am writing to express my dissatisfaction and dilemmas with the current accommodation arrangement I have at my college. My roommate's absurd activities are negatively affecting my studies and I would like to move into a single room next term which completely depends on your kind permission.

Although my current room is nice to live in with proper amenities, I am not satisfied with the irrational attitude and carelessness of my housemate. He has an antipathy towards cleaning the room. Moreover, he has a big social circle and invites friends to the room on a regular basis. They listen to loud music, sometimes hold parties and play computer games which create a commotion that disturbs me and interrupts my studies. Furthermore, he has a tendency to use my personal belongings without my permission. In the last few months, I have lost some of my valuables from the room and I am not sure who should I blame!

I would like to live in a single room so that I can have freedom of work and study. My final exam is approaching and I want to prepare for it without any interference. I hope you would be kind enough to understand my issues related to my roommate and would arrange a new room next semester.

I hope to hear a positive response from you soon.

Yours faithfully,

Fahad Sultan

Model Answer 4:

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am writing to express my utter dissatisfaction with my current college accommodation, mainly due to my housemate's absurd routine that severely disrupts my studies. I am hoping you would kindly allow me to move into a single room next term so that I can study properly and live harmoniously.

As you know, I stay in room 625 with a roommate in our college's science block. The room is nice and spacious. However, my roommate has a wide social circle and he invites visitors almost daily, which makes the room overcrowded. Besides, he holds parties now and then, which often last till midnight or early morning. This makes impossible for me to focus on my studies. To make the situation worse, he uses my belonging even without asking and often damages them.

I hope this matter will receive your immediate attention as it is seriously hampering my studies. I would appreciate if you could arrange a single room for me from the next semester as I have a habit of studying in a silent atmosphere.

Thanking you in advance for your kind cooperation. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Yours faithfully,

Mansoor Afzal

Dear sir or madam,I am writing you to express my discontent and difficulties about my roommate and wish to shift to another accommodation in the next term.The main reason for this request is that I need to have some space for studying. My roommate has too many friends who visit her every day and she often throws parties. They speak and listen to music loudly and have conversations for a long. I have tried to explain my problems to my roommate and hoped that she would change, but it never happened and in fact, things are becoming worse day by day. I have only 2 months left for my final exam and I mostly go to the library to study, but this is not enough.I understand that the college has limited room availability, but I do sincerely hope that you could consider my request. I have no issue in sharing room with anyone, as long as she is reasonable and have a good attitude.I hope to hear from you soon and sorry for any inconvenient caused.Yours faithfully,Grac e.
