IELTS General Writing Task #6

Join my IELTS telegram channel

Tip: use referencing words (it/they/one/etc) to avoid repeating the same words.

Write at least 150 words.

You do NOT need to write any addresses.

Begin your letter as follows:

Dear …,

You recently attended a meeting at a hotel. When you returned home, you found you had left some important papers at the hotel.

Write a letter to the manager of the hotel. In your letter

  • say where you think you left the papers
  • explain why they are so important
  • tell the manager what you want him/her to do

    Dear Sir/Madam,

    On the 15th of February I attended a meeting with several business associates in your hotel restaurant. At the end of my meeting I believe I left some documents behind. The documents included two copies of a contract, which I believe I left on the table, or possibly on one of the seats.

    These documents are of a commercially sensitive nature. It is not so much a case of needing them back as we can easily print duplicates, but we do need to ensure that copies do not fall into the hands of our competitors or other interested parties. I’m sure you can appreciate our position here.

    I would therefore request that you ask your waiting staff who worked on that day whether they saw these documents. If they have, I would be satisfied to know that they have been shredded. I am extremely grateful for your assistance in this embarrassing matter.

    Yours faithfully,
