IELTS GENERAL WRITING TASK 1

About General Writing Task 1

General Task 1 questions are made up of 3 different parts. The first is usually 1 sentence long and gives some background information on why the letter is being written. The second part instructs the student to write a letter and often indicates the nature and tone the student is expected to display. The third part of the question shares specific details that the student must elaborate upon. It is important that the student completely understands each section of the question to ensure their answer fulfills it properly.

Even though your question may be on any number of topics, you will most likely need to write one of the following six letter types:

1. A letter of request

2. A letter of condolence

3. A letter of appreciation

4. A letter of advice, feedback or suggestion

5. A letter of apology

6. A letter of complaint
