IELTS General Training - Task 1

You have just completed an evening course at your local college.

Write a letter to the college. In your letter:

  • describe the course you took
  • explain what you liked and disliked about it
  • suggest how it could be improved


Dear Mrs Westhall,

I recently completed a six month Secretarial evening course at Ferns College which included modules on typing, office practice, software, and public relations. I am writing to provide you with some feedback regarding this course.

I was very pleased with your teaching staff and the latest technology the college has. The teachers were very knowledgeable, friendly and willing to answer all our questions. I was also excited to learn how all relevant equipment works in a modern office.

Unfortunately, the class times were very late. As the start time was 9 pm most of the students were too exhausted to pay attention. In addition, going home after 10 pm was not the safest option for us.

I would therefore like to suggest that classes start earlier in the evening so that students can focus better on what is being taught and they are not worried about their safety when going home after class.

I hope you take the above recommendations into consideration.


Yours Sincerely,

Clarissa Ryan
