Letter Writing # 301 - You want to organise a party in your office

IELTS Letter Writing / GT Writing Task 1:

You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.

You want to organise a party in your office to celebrate something.

Write a letter to your manager about the party at the office. In your letter,

  • say what the party is about
  • mention why it is necessary
  • explain what you expect from him/her to do

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 inform you about a party in our office that we are planning to organise next Friday afternoon, after office hours.

This party or celebration was long overdue, not only because our company has achieved the “excellence in customer service” reward this year, but also because all of us have worked tirelessly to make this company successful. In fact, some of us have worked so hard over the past few years that we did not even take a holiday for the whole year, barring some sick leaves. So, when they saw the fruits of their labour, they naturally wanted to celebrate their success, and hence the party.  

I believe, such a party or celebration is necessary once in a while because it would recognize the efforts and hard work of our dedicated employees which then, in turn, would motivate them to work even harder. 

Now, we would request you to attend the party for a few minutes and say a few words on how to take our company even father ahead of its competitors. Your presence would be highly appreciated.  

Yours faithfully,

Neil Foster
