She always has friend visiting and has parties in the room. They make lots of noise and switch on the radio very loudly, for me this environment is very difficult to study and I need a quiet room. Even borrows my things without asking, it is very impolite.
I request you can give me a new room next term because I have been asked her has parties in other place many times they still have parties in the room. I really can not stay in the same room with her. I would be grateful if you could change me a single room. Length is a common problem in General Training scripts. Answers that are short lose marks because there is insufficient material in the answer for the examiner to give credit for accuracy and coherence.
Despite these problems, the introduction to the letter is appropriate and the purpose of the writer is clear. The points are not always linked together well and punctuation is sometimes faulty. The sentences are kept quite simple and mistakes occur as soon as more complex structures are attempted. My main problem is that I cannot study in my room because my roommate always has friends visiting. He also has parties which usually end early in the morning, several times a week.
Furthermore, he often borrows my things without asking me. I cannot accept this situation any longer. Especially because I have very important exams next term and I really must study hard. This is why I would be very grateful if I could have another room next term.
It would be most convenient for me not having to share my room with someone else. I am looking forward to hearing from you soon.

It started working but suddenly got stuck and we were unable to use it since. I was very surprised to discover that much problems in a quite expensive model.
Naturally, I returned the blender to you to be replaced with a new one. Your assistant said that I would have to wait only a week. After two weeks the food processor had still not arrived. Finally, four weeks later, I was contacted by your representative. Imagine my feelings when I learned from him that I cannot receive the same model of food processor as I bought.
As a solution he offered that I upgrade my model to a better one and this too will take two weeks. I am very disappointed with both the equipment and the service have I received.

First, I need the names and phone numbers of a few of the other people in my group. I also need to know the airline names, flight numbers, the departure and the arrival times. I was wondering if you could provide me with the list of local doctors I can contact in case of emergency and a contact number for your company representative in Africa.

It does not have many strict rules. I have a couple of suggestions that will make it easier. Start writing on a topic from paragraph 1. Once again, this paragraph must be the biggest one. If possible, try to write 2 paragraphs depending on the length of your ideas.
In your letter, describe how you have been and describe a few changes in your life during that time. Also invite him or her to join you soon. My work keeps me so busy, that I never have a minute to myself.
I am writing to invite you to my wedding. Since you have never met my future husband, you must have a million questions running through your mind right now. I hope I can tell you enough to put your mind at ease until we meet. Five months ago I decided to take a cruise to Bahamas, to get away for a little while. And on that cruise Faith arraigned for me to meet my future husband Alan.
He is the most wonderful, loving person you could ever imagine and we are very happy together. I told him all about you and our friendship. I am writing in regard to books I borrowed from the library on March 15, and never returned.
Explain in more details the purpose of your letter. Consider the idea that task instructions give you, write according to it. Make up interesting details in addition to the original idea. Say what kind of answer you expect or what suggestions do you have for the situation. It is also a good place to apologize, if applicable. Write a letter to the library official and in your letter describes what happened, express your sincere words of apology and offer what you can do to make it up.
I have found myself in this unpleasant situation for a reason. My close relative was very sick and I had to go visit him at the hospital. I intended to return the books immediately after I get back to the college, but unfortunately I left the books on a train on my way from the hospital to the library. I understand that other students may need those books and deeply apologize for the inconvenience. I will try to return the books as soon as possible. Faithfully yours, Adam Smith Mr.
Avoid these mistakes, and you are on the way to writing a good letter! Do it right! It works for absolutely any kind of letter. After writing a couple of letters you will realize, that writing down a words alone takes you 15 minutes, plus you have to think of a story to tell in your letter, to make it interesting. So this is how you do it: 1. Read the assignment and write down on the draft paper 3 first things that come to your mind.
Those ideas must refer to the topic directly. If there are a number of things you need to write about, refer to every one of them. Stop right there, no more thinking! Start writing. First paragraph requires no thinking — write sentences that explain the topic of your letter. Remember the 3 things you made up? Use them while you are writing paragraph two. Make it the largest paragraph because it is your only chance to get words in the letter.
When paragraph two is done, paragraph three and four if applicable are a piece of cake, because they generally are based on paragraph two. After you have finished writing, read the letter once again and check for your common spelling, grammatical and punctuation errors.
Use the following topics to practice in writing letters as much as you can. They will also help you understand better how to classify the letter tasks — to know what kind of letter you need to write. You are visiting another town next month for a short break.

First of all, what accommodation can you recommend?
I am travelling alone and do not have a car, so I'd like something central to the town, at a mid range price if possible. Somewhere near a bus route would be good, too. Also, are there any special events on between the dates I will be there? I have heard that there is a market on the 20th of the month, but I was wondering if there's anything else going on?
I am interested in most things, but would like to plan my trip as much as possible to get the most out of my stay. Thanks for your time.

I have been invited to attend my best friend's wedding which unfortunately coincides with the date we had already established. I realise that this is not the most impressive start to my application to work with your company, but I have been asked to speak at the wedding and feel obliged to attend. I am of course very interested in the position and feel that I can offer my skills and experience to the role, so I would be very grateful if we could set a new date that fits your schedule.

Ideally, I am looking for something with easy access to the motorways as I will be spending a great deal of time travelling to nearby cities. I am not particularly concerned with the particulars of the house itself as I will only need a bedroom and bathroom, and don't anticipate spending much time in the kitchen.
I will, however, need internet access as I will be working at home on my computer and will need to be in touch with my head office throughout my stay. I will also need to be within a reasonable distance from a shopping area, although it will only be for the essentials like bread and milk. If you have anything you feel may be suitable, then I would be very interested to hear from you. You would like to rent a car for a holiday. Write to the car rental agency.

Thanks for asking me to come to the cinema, but I'm going to have to pass I'm afraid - I have already arranged to catch up with a few people from the place I used to work.
My old boss is retiring, so it'd be good to catch up with him before he leaves. How long will you have? We can arrange another night or why don't you come along to the part I'm going to? I'm sure you'll have a good time, and I think you've already met a few of the people at that Christmas party a few years ago.

In addition, there were scratches on one of the disks that suggest that it had been used before and returned to your store. I have since found the same offer on another website and will be returning the package to your offices.
I have read the refund policy on your site, and as I am dissatisfied with the product, I would like to request a return of all fees paid, as well as the post and packaging costs. Should you have any questions, you can contact me on johnf abc. I look forward to a swift resolution to this matter.
You have just returned from holiday and were not satisfied with your trip. Write to the travel agency. Sample Answer: Dear Manager, I am writing to express our dissatisfaction with a holiday we have recently had that was organised by your company. We booked the 7 day 'Explorer' package and departed on the 22nd of last month.
Our main grievance is that we were informed by the staff member with whom we made the booking that all excursions were included in the cost, yet on our arrival we were informed that additional fees were required to join any of these trips. In addition, we had expected a far higher standard of accommodation, and were disappointed to find it was only a two star establishment despite your brochure stating that it would be at least three stars.
Given that we have had to make considerable additional expenses whilst on our holiday, we are requesting a complete refund of the fees we have been charged by your company. Hoping for a swift response to our concerns. A friend has invited you to a party but you will not be able to attend.

Well, he's getting married and the wedding is in London, so I'll be away for three days. Perhaps we could catch up when I get back?
We could go to that new restaurant that's just opened on Queen St. It's about time we caught up — it must be at least 6 months since I saw you and I have some exciting news to tell you about my job! Anyway, hope you have a good party - I'm sure you will as your parties are always good fun! I remember the New Years Eve party at your house three years ago — it was one of the best parties I've been to! You recently ordered an item that was advertised as having a discount from the normal price, but you have found that when you paid, you did not get the discount.
In your letter x Explain that you did not get the discount x Tell them where you saw the discount advertised x Tell them what you would like them to do about the situation You do NOT need to write any addresses. It was a new digital camera from the Nokia range, model number SL The item was ordered using your telephone ordering system and I read my credit card number to the sales person on the other end of the line.
I saw the reduced price offer in our local newspaper, in which your company had taken a full page advertisement with all items on the page discounted. If this is not possible, then I would regretfully send the item back as I can obtain it for a cheaper price in other stores. You have received a letter from your local video shop claiming that a DVD you rented is now overdue.
However, you have already returned the DVD. Write to the video shop. In your letter x Tell them which film the letter is about x Explain when you returned it x Tell them what you would like them to do about the situation You do NOT need to write any addresses.
As it was only a one night rental, I returned the disc the following day.

This morning, however, I have received a letter from your office claiming that the title has not been returned, and that I now have fines to pay.
Nonetheless, I have been a member of your store for over 6 years, and I am sure your records will verify that I have always returned items on time. Could I ask that you check your inventory once again, and perhaps also check the postal slot where I returned the film, in case it has landed in an obscure position?
You have an advertisement for a part time job welcoming visitors to your town. Write to the recruiters. In your letter x Explain why you want the job x Describe why you would be a good person for the role x Describe any relevant experience you may have You do NOT need to write any addresses. As a local resident of some 25 years, I am very familiar with the location, and have actually spent some time in researching the history of the town.
As you may know, the house I live in is one of the oldest buildings in the area and dates back over years, so I feel I am perhaps in a unique position to give visitors an interesting and informative perspective of where we live. I have a background in lecturing, so I feel that I would be able to address groups of people clearly and confidently, and my experience with students from overseas would certainly help, given the multinational nature of visitors that we have here.
Your local museum has asked for feedback on your recent visit. Write to the museum. In your letter x Tell them what you liked and what you didn't like x Make some suggestions for improvement x Describe some other exhibits you would like to see You do NOT need to write any addresses. Johnson, I have been asked by your office to write to you regarding your museum with some points of view about my recent visit.
I would like to say first of all that I think you have done an excellent job modernizing the place, and I have recommend it as a day trip to a number of friends. The layout of the building is bright and inviting, and the items you have on display are well laid out.
However, I do feel that some of the exhibits could have been more clearly labeled, with some additional details about where they were discovered and what they would have been used for. Some of the displays my son and I were looking at were a little confusing. I would also be very interested to see artifacts that may be available from other cultures. I am particularly interested in Egyptian history, for example, and would certainly come again if there were any displays like that.
Thanks for your interest in my feedback. You recently went to a restaurant but think you could have left your credit card behind. Write to the restaurant. In your letter x Tell them when you went there x Describe where you think you may have left the credit card x Explain what you would like the restaurant to do You do NOT need to write any addresses. Sample Answer: Dear owner, Three nights ago, on the 22nd of February, my wife and I came to your restaurant for an evening meal. Our booking was for 7.
However, I believe that I may have left my credit card on the table once we had paid the bill, as I cannot locate it now. I do not remember the exact table number, but it was a table for two near the back wall. I think it may have fallen on the floor as I remember checking the table surface for any items we may have left behind, but I don't recall seeing it there. If you have found the card, I would be very grateful if you could dispose of it. I have asked my bank to cancel it already, but for security sake I would be happier knowing it was destroyed.
I believe the recommended manner of doing this is to cut the card into 4 pieces. By the way, the meal was excellent! With thanks, S.

In your letter x Explain what has happened x Request a refund x Ask whether you will be able to return at a later date You do NOT need to write any addresses. A situation has arisen and I find that I have no option but to return home for the foreseeable future.
A member of my family has become unwell and will require long term support. I believe that the school has a 7 day refund policy for circumstances such as this, and as I only paid for my course three days ago, I would like to take advantage of this and request my fees be returned to my account. Nonetheless, I am still determined to improve my English in the future, and I have been very impressive with your training facilities and teachers in the short time I have spent with you, so I would like to enquire as to whether it would be possible for me to return at some point in the future?
Thanks for your understanding, H. You are applying for membership at a local sports club. Write to the club. Sample Answer: Dear Sir or Madam, I am writing with regards enrolling in your sports facilities, as I am keen to improve my level of fitness and have always enjoyed football and swimming, two of the options you have available.
A friend of mine joined about 6 weeks back, and he has been very positive in his feedback of your club and has recommend it to myself and a number of friends. I understand that there are amateur football competitions that run in the evenings, and I would be very keen to join a team as it has been one of my passions for many years. As I mentioned, I enjoy swimming, but am also interested in finding out more about your indoor climbing wall. As far as I understand, this is the highest of its kind in the area, and I would be very keen to try it even though I have never done anything like that before.
I would be grateful if you could let me know about membership options or arrange a time for me to come and see you. You have been invited to speak at your old high school. In your letter x Make a suggestion about what you could speak about x Find out how long you will need to speak for x Ask how many people will be there You do NOT need to write any addresses. Sample Answer: Dear Principal Simpson, First of all, I'd like to say thank you very much for the offer to come and address the students at my former school.
It would be a privilege for me to give a talk and to see the old place again. The invitation was quite open regarding the topic of the speech, so I was wondering whether you think it appropriate to talk about my career. As you may know, I have spent a considerable amount of time over the last 12 years travelling as part of my job, and I have had the opportunity to see some amazing places that I think would interest the students.
It would help me to plan my presentation if you could let me know the approximate time that I should expect to be speaking for. If you could also let me know the estimated students numbers, as I will be able to bring a data projector to show some photographs if a large turnout is expected. I am looking forward to seeing you again and hope my visit will be a success. You have been studying overseas and staying as a guest with a family for the last 6 months and have recently returned home.
Write to the family. In your letter x Thank them for having you x Say what you enjoyed about living with them x Tell them what your current plans are You do NOT need to write any addresses. Sample Answer: Dear Kath, Dave and Jamie, Well, I'm back home now, and I just wanted to write to you to say thanks once again for a lovely time and your wonderful hospitality — I had such a great experience and it was really kind of you to open your home to me.
Since I left, there have been a lot of things I have missed, but the main thing is Kath's cooking!
