We haven’t looked at Writing Task 1 question for a while, so let us start with a new series of IELTS Writing task 1 topics. One of our trainers has published her letter as an answer to one of the Letter-Writing questions that appeared in the IELTS Writing task 1 section.
You eat at your college cafeteria at lunchtime every day. However, you think it needs some improvements. Write a letter to the college management. In your letter:
• explain what you like about the cafeteria
• say what is wrong with it
• suggest how it could be improved
You should be spending about 20 minutes on this task. The specific word limit for the letter writing is usually 150 words. A sample letter for the given IELTS Writing task 1 question is given below.
I would like to introduce myself as Simlee (Final Year MBA). I am writing this letter to you as one of those students who patronize the cafeteria. This is because it serves food through the day and it is quite spacious and airy and has an old world charm to it.
However, I would like to suggest a few pointers for its betterment. Firstly, the menu could be changed on a rotational basis; I’ve noticed that it hasn’t changed in the last 6 years. Newer food items can be introduced. Secondly, more counters to pick up the food could be opened during the peak hours. Postgraduate students like us tend to come in late as we are stuck with our research work and by the time we jostle and reach the counter, it takes a while. In addition, please also ensure that the waiters and cleaners are wearing hygienic clothing items like gloves, aprons etc., This gives a sense of total cleanliness too.
I now sincerely hope that these suggestions are considered by you and implemented as soon as possible so that it would benefit all of us.
