GT Writing Task 1 (Letter Writing) Sample # 175
You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.
One of your pen pals will shortly be visiting your city. For some reason, you cannot manage to meet him/her at the airport on time.
Write a letter asking him/her to wait for you at the airport and tell him/her how to identify you.
Write at least 150 words.
You do NOT need to write any addresses.
Begin your letter as follows:
I hope that you are doing well. So, aren’t you excited about the fact that we finally will be able to meet each other in person after becoming pen pals a long time ago? As for me, you will be glad to know that I immediately made some plans to see you at the airport as soon as I learned about your visit, only to find out a little later that I won’t be able to meet you on time because of another equally important matter.
But, don’t you become upset because I won’t be able to see you on time at the airport. In fact, I will arrive there soon after! So, all you would need to do is to wait for another 30 minutes or so, after our pre-scheduled meeting time, so that I am able to pick up my little cousin from his school.
By the way, I will be wearing a navy blue t-shirt and a pair of black jeans, in case you have trouble identifying me. Besides, I will also be holding a placard, with your name on it, to help you find me at the arrival gate of your terminal.
