General Training Writing Task 1 Sample 93 - Room in office that can be used as a relaxation room

IELTS Letter Writing / GT Writing Task 1:

You noticed a room at your company office that can be used as a relaxation room. Write a letter to your manager and ask to use it for this purpose.

In your letter,

  • Explain why you suggest this.
  • Which room is it?
  • What changes will need to be done there?

You should write at least 150 words.

You do NOT need to write your own address.

Model Answer:

Dear Sir,

I am Rohan, a junior executive in your organisation, would like to request you to arrange some recreational facilities for us and convert an unused room for this purpose.

The idea popped into my head when I attended a meeting at the H&G group's head office. They have a large room for recreation and relaxation and their HR mentioned that it actually increased their employee satisfaction and overall performance. I would like to have a relaxation room in our office as well. As a matter of fact, I have talked to some of my colleagues and all of them welcomed the idea.

The meeting room on the third floor in our office is no longer used and could be an ideal room for our staffs to rest, socialise and enjoy their time and unlax their pressure.

This room already has a large table and a few chairs. It needs a large TV, a table tennis, a few more chairs, a sofa set and a couple of exercise machines.

I hope you would consider converting the room to a relaxation room and allow us to have an even better work environment.

Yours Sincerely,

Dear Mr John,

I have noticed an unused room in our office which I think would be a great place for our employees to relax and revive for a better performance. I would like you to permit to transform this empty office room into a recreation room.

In fact, we had a relaxation room in the past but after we moved to a new workplace, the management did not dedicate a room for this purpose. In addition, our previous recreation room had some exercise equipment and many colleagues used those after the office hours. This was quite beneficial as most of us spend too much time in front of a computer and do little physical exertion.

I have seen a vacant room next to the cafeteria which is left unused for quite a long. I would appreciate it if you could look at this room and convert it to a useful place for us. It would be a good idea to keep a sofa set and a large HD television with international news and sports channels. If you manage to fix some of the exercise machines, that would be excellent.

I appreciate your kind consideration and look forward to hearing your positive response.

Yours sincerely,

Janaka Senevirathne
