IELTS Cambridge Book 15 Test 4 GT – Letter

Question – 


You should spend 20 minutes on this task.

You have seen an advertisement from a couple, who live in Australia, for someone to teach their two children your language for a year.

Write a letter to the couple. In your letter:

  • explain why you think you would be suitable for the job
  • say what else you could do for the family
  • give your reasons for wanting the job

Write at least 150 words.

You do NOT need to write any addresses.

Begin your letter as follows:

Dear __________,

Answer – 

Dear Mr. and Mrs. Smith,

I am writing this letter with regard to the advertisement you posted for a Hindi language teacher for your two offspring for a year.

I believe I would be a good candidate for this position because, first of all, I am a native Hindi speaker, and I have a standard accent. Additionally, I have three years’ experience in teaching the language to children at a famous school in my city, so I have experience in handling juveniles, and I can provide good references from my previous job.

Apart from teaching your children the Hindi language, I can teach them drawing. I have attended an art school, and I can draw exceptionally well. Furthermore, I have been practicing yoga consistently for almost five years, so I can give your family some yoga classes as well, which will keep you fit and teach your offspring the importance of good health.

I am extremely interested in this position because I am moving to Australia soon on a work permit, and, as I do not know anyone in this country, it would be a good opportunity for me to fit into the culture. Additionally, working for an English-speaking family would help me to improve my fluency in English.

Kind regards,
Johnny Walker
