IELTS General Writing Task 1 with model answer
You should spend about 20 minutes on this task. Write about the following topic
You live in a room in college which you share with another student. You find it very difficult to work there because he or she always has friends visiting. They have parties in the rooms sometimes borrow your things without asking you.
Write a letter to accommodation officer at the college and ask for a new room next term. You would prefer a single room and explain your reasons.
Write at least 150 words.
I am a postgraduate student, and I currently live in the university dorm. I am writing to request a new room, preferably a single room, from the next term because of the inconvenience that I am facing with my current roommate.
I have been sharing my room with an undergraduate student. Unfortunately, she is party-kind. She has lots of friends visiting her every day. They organise parties in the room and since it is a single bedroom house, I am struggling and cannot concentrate on my work. Moreover, I sometimes sleep in the library because I am worried that I cannot work in my room. Although I tried to request her to stop organising parties, she has never shown any concern towards me.
This is the reason why I decided to shift to a new room from the next term. I would prefer someone who is quiet and work-minded as my roommate. Furthermore, I decided not to share with undergraduate students. If you cannot find someone with my preference, I am good to take a single room for myself.
I hope you understand my situation, and I look forward to a positive response.
