Letter Writing # 198 - You would like to move into another room

IELTS Letter Writing / GT Writing Task 1:

You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.

You live in a room in the college hostel which has severe problems. You would like to move into another room and need your hostel super's permission for that.

Write a letter to the hostel super. In your letter,

  • introduce yourself
  • describe the problems
  • explain what type of room you would prefer

Write at least 150 words.

You do NOT need to write any addresses.

Begin your letter as follows:

Dear Sir or Madam, 


Model Answer:

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am writing to request you to change my current accommodation arrangement in our college hostel and let me move into another room which is favourable for studies and pleasant to live in.

I am Erica Garcia, a science major student in your college and I am residing in the college hostel. My room number is F-412 but I find it very challenging to live and study in this room. First of all, the room is very small to accommodate two students. Two beds and other necessary furniture in this room leaves no open space even and we hardly get space to walk or move in this room and because of that, we were hurt several times by the sharp corner of the iron beds. The lack of proper ventilation facility and the scarcity of the natural sunlight and fresh air is another big issue with this room. We are bound to use the light 24 hours a day. It’s quite suffocating and because of this, I am not able to concentrate on my study.

 Therefore, I humbly request you to allow me any other room where at least proper ventilation facility is present. I am hoping that you would let me move into another room, preferably to a large one, before my semester final in October.

Looking forward to your positive response.

Yours faithfully,

Erica Garcia
