General Training Model Answer – IELTS (Task 1)

You recently bought a large expensive item but when it was delivered to your home you found some problems with it.

Write a letter to the manager of the shop. In your letter
Give details of what you bought
Describe the problems with your item
Say what you want the shop to do

Dear Sir or Madam,

Last week I purchased a washing machine from your High Street branch which was delivered to my home and subsequently installed. The washing machine (model BS-251) has attractive features – low energy consumption, 15 kilo load, includes dryer function, special introductory price etc – which is why I chose it.

When I used the machine for the first time, it did not perform the rinse cycle. As a result when I opened the door to remove the clothes they were soaking wet. I also had to remove the excess water in the machine manually. In addition, even though I had a colour load one of my pink sweaters became purple.

I would like to keep the washing machine as I believe it will be useful once it functions well. Therefore, I would like you send one of your technicians to my home to fix the problem which I believe is technical.

Yours sincerely,

Carla Stanford

      I mean, you can literally check off every box on his “perfect woman” list...

      But if you mess up this one thing, he’ll drop you the second another option comes along?

      My friend James Bauer discovered this missing “secret ingredient” all men are constantly searching for in a woman.

      And most women have no clue it exists because guys aren’t even aware of it.

      We just KNOW when it’s missing.

      ===> The “Secret Ingredient” to obsessive love <=====

      The really cool thing is, when you know how to give a man this “secret ingredient”...

      It will send a shockwave of desire for you straight to his brain and he will HAVE to have you.

      In fact, when you do this... watch his face light up, almost as if he’s just been zapped.

      It’s that moment when he says to himself “Where have you BEEN all my life?”

      Every woman should know this. Check it out here: ====> Why men leave “perfect” women... <=====
