IELTS Cambridge Book 17 Test 3 GT – Letter

Question – 


You should spend 20 minutes on this task.

You recently booked a part-time course at a college. You now need to cancel your booking.

Write a letter to the college administrator. In your letter:

  • say which part-time course you booked
  • explain why you need to cancel your booking
  • ask about booking a different course

You should 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 this letter to cancel my recent enrollment in a part-time course under the name, Damien Priest.

The course which I opted for is, “Basics of Marketing”. This course is 3 months long and classes are scheduled in the evenings from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on the weekends, Saturdays and Sundays. This course will begin next week, and I paid the full fee with my credit card last week. I can send you a copy of the receipt if you want.

I am cancelling my booking because I have gotten a job in my preferred field, as an electrical engineer at Amazon. Therefore, this particular course about marketing will be futile, and I do not want to spend my time and energy on something that is not going to help me build my future.

However, I am not asking for a refund, as I would like to enrol myself in your other course called “How to Manage Time Effectively”. I believe this course would be ideal for me because I am a bit unorganised when it comes to managing my time, so if I learnt this skill, I would be able to complete my tasks on time and be more organized and productive. These skills could help me to push my career to new heights, and achieve my goals and dreams.

Thank you for your consideration.

Yours faithfully,
Damien Priest
