IELTS General Training Writing Task 1: Letter Sample Answer #1


Write letter to your friend asking him for money

For what purpose do you require the money?

How much money do you require?

By what time would you return the money?


Hi Umar,

I am good. I hope you are fine too. It has been a while that I talked to you but you would be excited to know that I have recently moved to your town. I am finally going to go ahead with the business plan you recommended me.  If everything goes well I would be able to open my first book store. I recently bought a house so I am running out of funds so it would be much appreciated if you could provide some monetary favor.


I have rented a place near the intersection of Adelaide and Oxford Street and it is having a space of 15,000 square feet. I would say that I am very fortunate to have found this place for only $24,000 per annum, but I would be requiring an extra $30,000 for inventory. I want to keep a wide range of books so that people could have more books to choose from.


I have been trying to sell a shop which I got from my father and I would be able to pay you the money back as soon as it is sold. Even if it does not get sold, I have made some other arrangements to ensure that I get your money back to you within 6 months. I am hopeful for your positive response and if you decide to give me money please reply to me so that I could send you my bank account details.
