IELTS Letter Writing / GT Writing Task 1:
You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.
Your child is going on a trip to another country for a week. The school authority is looking for some parents who can join the trip. You are interested in going with the children.
Write a letter to the head of the school. In your letter,
- say why you want to join the team
- mention what you can do to assist
- also ask questions related to the trip
Write at least 150 words.
You do NOT need to write any addresses.
Begin your letter as follows:
Dear Sir or Madam,
Dear Sir or Madam,
I am the father of one of your students called Terry Anderson, and I am writing this letter to explore the possibility of joining you on a trip to Italy that the school has arranged.
I want to accompany your team as it will allow me to visit Italy, which once upon a time used to be the centre of world civilization, and have many attractive places to visit and many exciting activities to participate in. I also want to join the team to have a great time, and that too with my son! Besides, this trip will allow me to see a long-time friend of mine with whom I studied together at a foreign university who is originally from Italy.
By the way, including me in your team would certainly be an advantage because I can speak Italy. I can also free the youngsters from their boredom by sharing some funny and interesting stories with them. Besides, I also know how to prepare some quick snacks in case they go hungry.
But, before I really join you, I have a couple of questions to ask. Will I be allowed to roam around in the city separately with my son? Will there be other staff members with us to help the children?
I am looking forward to hearing from you soon.
