Question – 


You should spend 20 minutes on this task.

You have seen an advertisement in an Australian magazine for someone to live with a family for six months and look after their six-year-old child.

Write a letter to the parents. In your letter

  • explain why you would like the job
  • give details of why you would be a suitable person to employ
  • say how you would spend your free time while you are in Australia

Write at least 150 words.

You do NOT need to write any addresses.

Begin your letter as follows:

Dear Sir or Madam,

Answer – 

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am writing in response to the advert that you placed in one of the Australian magazines “The Lookout”, and I would like to apply for the nanny job.

The main reason I would love to do this job is that it would give me the all-important international experience that could help me go further in my career/open doors to a bright future for me. I can also earn some money to cover my expenses while I am in Australia.

I believe I would be the best candidate for this job because I have a 1-year diploma in Nanny Care and Nutrition. Therefore, I am well equipped to take care of your child and can teach your offspring crucial social skills and hygiene. I can also cook nutritious food for your whole family and do housekeeping and laundry, too.

In my free time, I would like to explore the beaches of Australia, as I have heard a lot about how beautiful the beaches are and how relaxing sunbathing is. Since my home town is surrounded by land, I have never had a chance to see a beach. Furthermore, I would like to see Australian wildlife because I am a nature lover; therefore, I would like to explore different kinds of flora and fauna that are native to Australia.

Thank you for your consideration/I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours faithfully,
Chris Pratt
