GT Writing Task 1 (Letter Writing) Sample # 66

Write a letter to your colleague. In your letter, explain:

  • describe your accommodation
  • why it is suitable for him/her

Write at least 150 words.

You do NOT need to write any addresses.

Begin your letter as follows:

Dear ……………,

Model Answer:

Dear James,

I hope this letter finds you in good health and spirit. I am so glad to know that you have finally decided to take a job in my city, which I believe is a great idea. But, it looks like I will have to leave out of my town for a few days. So, it would mean that I won’t get to meet you as soon as you arrive. However, I am eagerly waiting to meet you once I get back.

By the way, I am assuming that you have already arranged a suitable accommodation for your stay here. But, in case if you haven’t done so already, I would like to suggest that you can move into my flat which I will vacate next month. I have recently purchased a ready-flat in the Northshire area and will move there at the beginning of next month.

I have been living in this apartment for the last three years and it was one of the best accommodations I have ever lived in. It is a nice two-bedroom flat with two attached toilets and a large kitchen. The apartment is on the fourth floor and I love the view from my window.

Besides, it will take only 10 minutes to reach your office on a local bus. On top of that, the rent is really reasonable for a two-bedroom flat, which is conveniently sitting at a prime city location. So, just let me know what you think about my suggestion.

Warm wishes,
