You recently stayed at your friend’s place, to look after the house while he/she is away. You accidentally damaged something in his/her house.
Write a letter to your friend. In your letter, you should:
  • Describe what the accident was
  • Explain when it happened
  • Suggest how the damage can be fixed
Dear David,
I want to apologise for the vase that I broke when I was housesitting for you last week. It was the white porcelain vase on the dinner table next to the dining set. From its appearance I can tell that it is an exquisite decorative item and I am terribly sorry for having broken it. 
I want to explain to you that the damage was not intentionally done. I was just trying to help you clean the dining table as I could spot some dirt on the side of it. Unfortunately, I carelessly flung my arm a bit too much and pushed the vase off the table. Luckily, the vase was not broken to pieces, but the brim of it was chipped and there was a crack along its left side.
I believe I could fix this vase if you let me try. I’ve kept all of the broken pieces from the item and I could use strong glue to put it all together. Alternatively, I can compensate for my action by giving you a new vase similar to the one I have damaged.
Please tell me which option you prefer and I’ll be  more than happy to follow through with it. Warm regards, ….

Your colleague recently gave you a book. You had presentation and this book helped you in presentation.
Write a letter to your colleague.
  • Your presentation was on
  • Why this presentation was important for you
  • How book helped you in presentation
Dear David,
I am writing this letter to send you the warmest thanks for your tremendous support! Last week I borrowed a book from you and it provided me with so much useful information for my presentation. 
The presentation I had to deliver was about different types of plants living in hot climates. It was an assignment I had to do for my Biology module to complete my Master’s. The presentation made up over 50% of my overall score so it was extremely important to me. 
I was so glad when you lent me that book about cacti as I couldn't find a copy in my local library. The book gave such detailed information about different types of cacti and without it I wouldn't have passed the module with flying colors! 
Thank you for helping me out and I would love to invite you out for a drink some time. Warm regards,

You visited a town last month and told your friend that you would like to meet. However, you could not make it. Write a letter to your friend.
In your letter, you should:
  • express your apology
  • why you could not meet
  • making arrangements to meet him
Dear David,
I am so sorry for standing you up last month when we planned to meet at the coffee shop. I know I let you wait for hours and I feel really bad about it.
Truth is, I was really excited to visit the town and to catch up with you but my brother called when I was about to leave the house. Apparently he got into a fight with the local and was arrested by the police for physical assault. I had to come straight to the police station to bail him out and the paperwork took hours to complete. Because I left in such a hurry, I forgot to take my cell phone and text you about it.  
If you are free next Saturday, may I invite you out for coffee at the same place? I’d love to see you and to say sorry to you in person. The drinks are on me, by the way.
I hope this letter has cleared things up for you and that there's no bad blood between us now.
Lots of love, ...

You are studying a short course in another country. Your accommodation was arranged by the course provider. There is a major problem with the accommodation.
Write a letter to the course provider. In your letter:
  • Say what the problem is.
  • Describe the accommodation you thought you were getting.
  • Ask the provider to solve the problem.
Dear Mr. Schellhammer,
I am writing this letter to you to complain about the flat that you have arranged for me. I only moved into this flat three weeks ago but the situation is already getting out of hand.
The flat is completely infected with insects, especially cockroaches. I can hear them crawling around when I am in bed, which is too terrifying for me to have a good sleep. This also raises concerns about the sanitary of the whole place since I can't even leave my food around the house without the fear of cockroaches being all over them.
When I asked for accommodation, I thought I was going to have a decent and clean place but this is definitely not what I have signed up for. I hope you can look into this problem now and call a pest control company to sort this situation out.
I am looking forward to hearing back from you.
Best regards,

There is a problem with the changing rooms in the sports centre that you visit. You have complained several times but with no success.
Write a letter to the manager of the sports centre. In your letter:
  • Describe what the problem with the changing rooms is
  • Say what happened the last times you complained
  • Explain what you want the manager to do
Dear Mrs. Aura, 
I am writing this letter to you to complain about the changing rooms in the gym. The door locks of the stalls have holes which are big enough for people from outside to peak in if they want to. This makes me extremely uncomfortable every time I get changed as I feel like my privacy can be invaded at any moment.
Prior to this letter I have sent out five more emails but received no response. I believe this is too serious of an issue to be ignored and I am left with no other option but to terminate my gym membership if this problem persists.
I sincerely hope you can see into this problem. A good solution would be to replace all the locks with more secure ones and make sure that the changing stalls are completely enclosed and private. 
I am looking forward to receiving your response.
Yours sincerely,

Write a letter to your local council that the road in front of your house is damaged.
In your letter, you should:
  • tell him your name and where you are living
  • describe the problem
  • suggest what you want him to do for it
Dear Sir/Madam,
My name is Sarah and I am living at 45B Abbey Road. I am writing this letter to inform you about the terrible condition of the road in front of my apartment. 
Just a few years ago when I first moved into this place, the road was smooth and nicely surfaced. Over time, due to bad weather conditions and heavy traffic on the street, the road is now full of potholes of various sizes. Many accidents have happened on this road, partly because the drivers lost control when driving through these holes. 
I sincerely hope you can repair these potholes as soon as possible, so people around the area, including me, can feel safer when driving. Please do not forget to seal the cracks on the pavements as well since I believe these can also make the road worse over time. 
I am looking forward to receiving your reply,
Yours faithfully,

A friend has agreed to stay in your flat (apartment) and look after it while you are away. You want to give your friend some information about the flat.
Write a letter to this freind. In your letter:
  • Give information about the flat
  • Provide any important instruction
  • Say what he/she should do if there are any problems
Dear Jane,
How have you been doing lately? I hope that you are doing fine. I am writing this letter to give you some information about my apartment so you can feel comfortable while looking after it.
The apartment is located at 45B Abbey Road. It is a well-secured apartment so you need to use the key card I gave you to enter it. You don't need to turn on the lights when you get in since the light system is automatic and it can easily sensor your movement. However, you should remember to close the windows if you use the air conditioner or else the electricity bills will go through the roof. Besides, I have two dogs that need to be fed at around 8:00 am everyday. Dog food is on the top shelf of the cupboard. 
If there are any problems, please contact me as soon as possible or press 1 on the telephone to connect to the security guards. In case of fire, the emergency exits are located just down the hall, to the left of the apartment. 
Best wishes,
….

Write a letter to the manager of the conference centre. In your letter:
  • Give details about the course

Dear Sir/ Madam,
I am from SHG Company specialising in organising PR events. We are holding a training course for our staff at the end of this month and I want to inquire if your center has the right facilities for the course. 
The main focus of the course is to provide information about different marketing strategies and how to incorporate them effectively. The participants are required to work in groups and to plan a PR campaign before presenting it to the whole company. For this course, we need about 150 seats for the participants, a good lighting and sound system, as well as a high-quality projector for the presentation. 
I also wonder if your center provides catering service? We will have a lunch break during the event and we need to prepare a small buffet for 150 attendants. In addition, I want to make sure there is enough space in the parking lot to accommodate about 100 cars. 
Thank you and I am looking forward to hearing back from you.

A local college is having an International day. You want to speak about your country to students from different cultures. Write a letter to your college head.
  • Talk about the topic you are going to talk about.
  • Explain why would they be of interest to students
  • Ask about any arrangements you need to work to give the talk
Dear Mr. House,
My name is Thao. I am currently a student undertaking my Bachelor's Degree in the International Communication Department. I have been informed about the international day that will take place next month and I am interested in giving a speech about my country, Vietnam.
In particular, I would like to introduce my local cuisine and how our history has shaped our eating habits to international students. I believe a lot of students would take interest in these topics because Vietnam is famous for its rich and flavoursome cuisine. Many students are also aware of the infamous wars that Vietnamese people had to go through in the past and I am sure they would be keen on knowing the impact of such monumental and important historical events.
Regarding the preparation, I want to inquire if there are any arrangements that I should be aware of? Do I need to send you the script a week before the event? Is it compulsory to have a powerpoint presentation or can I just deliver my speech without any visual aids?
I am looking forward to receiving your response.

You are going to another country to study. You would like to do a part-time job while you are studying, so you want to ask a friend who lives there for some help. Write a letter to this friend. In your letter:
  • give details of your study plans
  • explain why you want to get a part-time job
  • suggest how your friend could help you find a job
Dear David,
How are you doing lately? I hope everything's going well for you. As I told you in the previous letter, I am going to Japan to study next month! I am enrolled in a course in Engineering which will last for about 2 years. It is a part-time course so I should have plenty of time free!
Since my course only focuses on theoretical knowledge, I want to look for some real-life experience when I live in Japan. That's the main reason why I want to find a part-time job, aside from my financial concerns. I know you are working as an engineer at the moment so I wonder if there is any internship position available at your company? I think your reference can tremendously help me in finding a suitable job.
Thank you so much for your help and I look forward to meeting you in person soon!

You have missed some important papers accidentally in a taxi. Write a letter to the manager of the Taxi company. In your letter:
  • Give the details of your journey
  • Explain why those papers are important for you
  • Suggest what can the manager do
Dear Sir/Madam,
My name is Sam. I am writing this letter to you to ask for your help in finding my missing documents. 
I called a taxi from your company yesterday at about 9 am to go from my house on the 5th Avenue to Hindus Cooperation on the 9th Avenue. We took the shortcuts which passed through the North Tunnel and arrived at the destination at about 10.30 am. 
When I got to my company, I realised my documents had gone missing. They are extremely important to me because they are the proposals for a huge project my team is working on. I reckon I must have accidentally left the papers in the taxi.
Can you kindly contact the driver I had yesterday and asked if he had seen any of my documents in his car? They should all be in a red folder with my name on them.
Thank you and please keep me updated if you have any information about my documents.
Best regards,

Thank you and I am looking forward to your reply.

Your child is going away on a school trip for three days to another country. The head teacher wants some parents to join the trip and you would like to go.
Write a letter to the head teacher. In your letter:
  • Say why you would like to go
  • Suggest what you could do to help during the trip
  • Ask some more questions about the trip
Dear Mr. Johanson,
I am Jenny Morris's mom. I heard that the children are going to the Netherlands as a part of their school trip and that you want to have some parents to accompany them on the way.
I would like to go on this trip with my daughter. The main reason is because I am quite worried about her being on the plane for the first time and would like to be there with her in case she feels nervous. In addition, I have been to the Netherlands quite a few times myself so I could be a great tour guide for the children on the trip. I can also prepare some snacks for the children to nibble on the road.
I have some concerns, however, about the accommodation for the children. As far as I know, the place we plan to stay in is not really hygienic and may be infested with bugs in the summer. It may be a good idea to reconsider our accommodation options.
Thank you for your consideration and I am looking forward to hearing back from you.
Yours sincerely,

Your office building doesn't have parking available.
Write a letter to the manager. In your letter:
  • Explain the problem
  • Suggest a solution
  • Say why parking will benefit all employees
Dear Sir/Madam,
I am currently working for SHB Company located on the 25th floor of our building. I am writing this letter to inform you of the inconvenience that our employees have due to the lack of parking facilities in the building.
Most workers in my company drive cars to work and because there are no parking spaces available within the territory of the building, the nearest place they can park is at the supermarket 600m away from the office. This means that an average worker has to work an average 1.2km daily to get to and from their car. 
I suggest that we should use the barren land at the back of the office as a temporary car park while thinking of a more long-term solution. I believe having parking next to the office would save a lot of time and energy for the employees and allow them to work more effectively. 
Thank you for your consideration and I am looking forward to hearing back from you.

A friend has written to you asking for advice about a problem at work. You have had a similar problem in the past.
Write a reply to your friend. In your letter:
  • Tell your friend you understand the problem
  • Explain what happened to you in the past
  • Suggest possible solutions to the problem
Dear Samantha,
I heard that you are having some problems communicating with other team members at the company. I am writing to tell you that I completely understand what you are going through and I hope I can help you with my advice. 
I was in the exact position last year when I first started working at the company. My communication styles were not compatible with my coworkers and most of the things I said either got misunderstood or ignored. It was such an uncomfortable experience to me and I even considered quitting the job.
However, I soon realised that the communication improved tremendously when I started giving more specific examples while explaining my ideas and opinions. I also started using concept-check questions to make sure that my message was successfully conveyed. I think this method can also do wonders to you and I highly recommend that you give it a try.
I hope this helps and please keep me updated on the issue.

Recently you saw an article in a newspaper/journal about a city/town you know and some of the information in the article was incorrect. Write a letter to the editor regarding this.
In your letter, you should tell:
  • how you know about this city/town
  • what information was incorrect
  • what the editor should do about this
Dear Sir/Madam,
I am an avid reader of The Guardian and I happened to read your article about Hoi An City, which was published on the 24th issue. There is some incorrect information in your article and I would like to suggest corrections for it. 
In your article, you wrote that Hoi An City does not have a distinctive cuisine and that most of its food supply comes from other areas. I have to say that this information is indeed incorrect. We have a variety of specialty dishes in our hometown that cannot be found anywhere else in Vietnam. I have been living in Hoi An City for over 24 years so I know about this city like the back of my hand.
I think it is imperative that you correct this information as soon as possible as it may confuse readers and lead to a lopsided view about Hoi An, which can affect tourism in my hometown. 
I am looking forward to hearing back from you.
