IELTS Letter Writing / GT Writing Task 1:
You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.
You recently saw an advertisement about a business conference that can be helpful for your work. Write a letter to your manager asking permission to attend the conference.
In your letter, say:
- What is the conference about?
- How did you know about the conference?
- Explain to him/her why it is important that you attend this conference.
You should write at least 150 words.
You do NOT need to write any address.
Begin your letter as follows:
Dear Mr Billison,
I am Charles Pattison, a junior project coordinator at your organisation. I am writing to seek your permission to attend a really helpful business conference organised by Business Flyer, a prominent human resource development company from the UK.
The conference, as advertised in the Daily Business Insider, will bring together like-minded young business professionals and would focus on steps to make a powerful digital footprint. The newspaper mentioned that it would be a three-day long discussion and aim to develop leadership skills of the participants so that they can bring innovation and success in digital marketing.
Right after I saw the advertisement for the conference, I called the coordinator and they advised to reserve a seat if I am interested. It will continue from 21st to 23rd February, from 8.00 am to 3.00 pm.
Our company has recently started taking the digital marketing seriously and I believe I can contribute more to it if I gather insights from the conference. The discussion topics are quite up-to-date and I believe those are actionable contents based on a sound curriculum.
I would request you to allow me to participate the conference and oblige thereby.
