IELTS General Writing Task 1 with model answer
You should spend about 20 minutes on this task. Write about the following topic
You want to sell your television. You think a friend of your might like to buy it from you.
Write a letter to your friend. In your letter:
- Why you are selling the television
- Describe the television
- suggest a date when your friend can come and see it.
Write at least 150 words.
I hope this letter finds you in good health. I am writing to inform you that I am selling my 60" Sony LED television set and I thought you might be interested in buying it from me.
I believe you are aware that I am moving into an apartment closes to the city to reduce my commute time to work. The apartment that I have selected i already furnished and has a television set, which is why I have no need for the one I own. I also have no extra space in the new house ; therefore, I have decided to sell my television. Although it is 3 years old it is well maintained and regularly serviced. it can be either well mounted or for you, placed in a shelf. Moreover, it will be a great purchase as you don't own television. You are more than welcome to come on Friday evening to watch the IPL match on it with me and assess the condition of the television set as well.
I am looking forward to seeing you soon.
