IELTS Writing Task 1(Sample Answer)

  • You recently read an article in a newspaper about your childhood friend with whom you have lost contact for a long time.


  • Write a letter to the editor. In your letter:


  • Say which edition and when did the article appear

  • Explain why you lost contact with your friend

  • Say how you want them to help you to get back in touch

Dear Sir or Madam,
I am writing this letter to enquire about a friend, about whom I read an article in your newspaper.
The article titled “Masters of recycling”, was printed on page seven of the newspaper dated 2nd August 2020. It was written by Manish Bhuvi on the initiatives taken by different individuals in plastic recycling. It so happens that Shubham Sharma, one of your interviewees, used to be my old school friend.
Shubham and I were classmates till the tenth grade after which his parents shifted to another city. We were in contact till college but once he left the country to study in America, it got difficult to keep track of each other, till eventually, our communication stopped completely.
I had been searching for his contact details for the past few years and I would be obliged if you could help me get in touch with him. Would you have Shubham’s phone number or email address with you? I would appreciate it if you could share it with me. It would put an end to my search and help two lost friends get back together.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Yours faithfully,

Estimated Band Score-6.0
