General Training Model Answer – IELTS (Task 1)

Last month you had a holiday overseas where you stayed with some friends. They have just sent you some photos of your holiday.

Write a letter to your friend. In your letter
Thank them for the photos and for the holiday
Explain why you didn’t write earlier
Invite them to come and stay with you

Dear Sarah and Craig,

I have just received the envelope with our holiday photos. I really enjoyed looking at them and in particular the ones of us in central London. I couldn’t have wished for a better break. Thank you for your hospitality and taking the time to show me around the main attractions of the city.

I realize that I should have been in contact with you earlier but I was so busy on my return. I went straight into work from the airport to deal with a crisis there. Unfortunately the fact that I was also moving house the same week didn’t help. Things have finally settled down so I decided to drop you a line.

I can’t wait for you to visit me in Beijing. You’ll be amazed by all our wonderful sights and culture. My new house is located in the old part of the city and I’d love to welcome you there. I have a spare bedroom with antique furniture which I’m sure you’ll appreciate.

Please let me know when you can come and I’ll make all the arrangements.
