IELTS Letter Writing / GT Writing Task 1:

You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.

One of your colleagues was in charge of organising an annual executive conference, and he/she has been successful in doing it. You want to congratulate your colleague on that.

Write a letter to this colleague. In your letter,

  • congratulate your colleague for successfully organising the event
  • mention what you liked about it the most
  • say how much you would like him/her to organise other events as well

Write at least 150 words.

You do NOT need to write any addresses.

Begin your letter as follows:

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


Model Answer:

Dear Jeremy,

Hope you are doing excellent. I am writing this letter to congratulate you on organizing this year's annual executive conference quite successfully. But, you deserve this compliment even more because you have managed to organize this conference successfully on rather short notice as we were not sure until the last hour whether or not our CEO would be able to attend the conference.

I think it was an outstanding conference this year as everybody loved it. What I liked the most about the conference is its theme selection where the theme “Stronger as a team” inspired all the attendees to have some serious, honest and stimulating conversations among themselves. Even our company CEO, who doesn’t normally take that much interest in our annual conference, was pleased with your theme selection. Besides, your venue selection for the conference was also very wise because everybody was able to arrive there easily in public transportation instead of using some expensive taxi ride.

So, it looks like you have the natural ability and talent to organize events. Therefore, I would be really glad if you start organizing other events like annual inter-departmental sports and annual corporate picnics from now on.

Yours sincerely,

Andy Moore
