Letter Writing # 177 - Write to a friend in the hospital telling him about the match

IELTS Letter Writing / GT Writing Task 1:

You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.

You play a team sport with some friends. Last week a member of the team had an accident and wasn't able to play with you at the weekend. You decide to write to him in the hospital, telling him about the match.

Write a letter to your friend. In your letter,

  •  tell him which team won
  •  say how you felt about the match
  •  ask how he is doing

You should write at least 150 words.

You do NOT need to write any addresses.

Begin your letter as follows:


Sample Answer:

Dear Joseph,

I was quite horrified by the news that you broke your leg during the practice session and got admitted to a hospital. I am writing to wish you a quick recovery and to let you know that we have won the match.

Without your presence, the team was discouraged and we missed you. However, we wanted to win the match and bring the trophy to our college this year. Muller and Gordon both scored and we won by 1 goal and the final score was 3-2. The final match was nerve-racking and we were lucky to have our usual composure. Everyone talked about you before the game and I felt your absence too.

I have not been able to meet you in the hospital and I am planning to do it the first thing on Monday. How are you doing? I hope the broken bones are not much severe. Take rest and stay relaxed. You are in our prayers.

I am hoping to talk to you in person soon.

Warm regards,
