IELTS Writing task 1 – letter
You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.
You have a full time job. You are also pursuing a part-time evening course which you can’t continue. Write a letter to your tutor. In your letter you have to
describe the situation
explain why you cannot continue at this time
say what action you would like to take
Write at least 150 words.
Dear Sir or Madam,
I am writing this letter to inform you that I can no longer continue the part-time computer course that I have been pursuing for three months.
I have a full-time job and a demanding boss. I have to be in the office from 9 am to 5 pm. Sometimes I have to work overtime to complete my pending tasks. I work in the city center but live in the suburb which means that I have to spend over two hours a day in commuting between office and home. Sometimes I reach home as late as 8 pm but my computer classes begin at 7 pm. As you probably remember, you have often reprimanded me for being late.
What’s more I am extremely tired when I get home back from work and have little energy or interest in studying in the evening. So at the moment, the only option I have is to discontinue the course.
I am looking for another job near my place of living. If I manage to find one, I will be able to continue this course. I am hoping that then I will be able to resume from where I stop now.
Thank you for your time and understanding.
