GT Writing Task 1 (Letter Writing) Sample # 33
You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.
You are going to another country to study. You would like to do a part-time job while you are studying, so you want to ask a friend who lives there for some help.
Write a letter to your friend. In your letter:
- give details of your study plans
- explain why you want to get a part-time job
- suggest how your friend could help you find a job
Write at least 150 words.
You do NOT need to write any addresses.
Begin your letter as follows:
Hope you are doing great. I have got enrolled in a diploma course at the Sydney Polytechnic Institute and it is a year-long course. My departure date is drawing near, and I am yet to finish so many things! The tuition fee and living cost are comparatively higher, and I am hoping that you can find me a part-time job.
I have decided to complete this diploma course before looking for a full-time job and you are one of those who supported me on that. I will always be indebted for that to you. My class will start on 3rd of June and I will arrive in Australia on 26th May. To assist in covering my tuition fee and living expenses, I intend to do a part-time job. So I would very much like to arrange some temporary employment before I arrive and I hardly know anyone in Sydney other than you.
I would really appreciate if you can look for a part-time job that I can do, preferably in a restaurant, library or a shop. I can also work as a nanny. I know you have a wide social network in Sydney and you wouldn’t mind looking for something suitable for me. I would be always grateful to you.
I look forward to hearing from you soon.
