GT Writing Task 1 (Letter Writing) Sample # 28

You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.

You play a team sport with some friends. Last week a member of the team had an accident and wasn’t able to play with you at the weekend. You decide to write to him in hospital, telling him about the match.

Write a letter to your friend. In your letter:

  • tell him which team won
  • describe the conditions on the day
  •  say how you felt about the match

Write at least 150 words.

You do NOT need to write any addresses.

Begin your letter as follows:

Dear ………,

Model Answer:

Dear Allen,

I’ve been down in the dumps since I heard about your accident and I am so sorry that you had to get admitted to a hospital. I wish your quick recovery and hope to have you among us in a couple of days.

Sunday’s match was an exciting one and we won by 3-2 scores, thanks to David who scored a goal just before the referee blew the whistle. This was quite shocking to our opponent and a sweet revenge for us. We missed you and at a time when we were struggling to send the ball to the opponent’s net, I realised your absence.

The weather was excellent and the match was not interrupted by rain, unlike the last year’s match. Everyone was exhilarated and our supporters cheered us up all the time.

The team members have asked me to send their regards and wish you a speedy recovery. I will come to visit you sometime in the evening tomorrow.

Best wishes,
