Letter Writing # 169 - Write a letter to friend and say you left your wallet

IELTS Letter Writing / GT Writing Task 1:

You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.

You have just spent a week with a friend on holiday. When you got home, you realised you had left your wallet there.

Write a letter to your friend. In your letter:

     -  thank your friend for the holiday
     -  explain that you left your wallet in their house
     -  give them instructions on how to send it back to you

You should write at least 150 words.

You do NOT need to write any addresses.

Begin your letter as follows:

Dear ............,

Sample Answer:

Dear John,

Hope this letter finds you well. I have landed safely in Dubai. I really enjoyed the holiday I spent with you guys. This was one of the best holidays ever. I am writing to thank you and to request you for the wallet I left at your house.

I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for having me at your place and making the trip so special. Last week was hands-down the best time of my life as I have never witnessed such a beautiful place and a vibrant culture before. Also, the food you cooked for me was delicious and celestial. I already miss the flavour and taste!

When I reached Dubai, I realized I left my wallet at your house. I believe it was sitting atop your piano when I was packing my stuff and I forgot to pick it up in a hurry, luckily my passport was not in the wallet, so I was still able to travel.

Still, there are some important items in my wallet so I would request you to courier it to me as soon as possible. You can send it to my office address as I spend most of my time there.

Say hello to all.

Warm wishes,


[Written by - Sameed]

It will be "spend" not "spent". Kindly re-read the line (talking in present tense)
'spent' not 'spend'.
