In this IELTS Letter Writing lesson, I look at the different elements that make up a complete IELTS letter. I introduce what to write in each of the 7 parts and include a sample essay to demonstrate.
Dear Sir or Madam,
My name is John Smith. I live in your college accommodation and am writing in regards to some problems I have been having recently that have made it difficult for me to concentrate on my work. (36 words, 40 total)
I am in my second year now and currently share my room with a person who is in his fourth year. While I understand that sharing a room is required for all residents in this accommodation, my roommate has been making it very difficult for me to study. (48 words)
The problem is that he often invites people over for parties without telling me in advance. This was true even last week during the exam period. I have tried to reason with him but I doubt that things will change. (40 words)
I am hoping that you will be able to place me in a quieter room for the next semester. I apologize for the trouble, but I need to be able to study in my residence. (35 words)
Thank you very much for your help.
