Depending on what the task instruction is, you then need to decide whether to write a letter of complain, request, apologize, invitation, suggestion or explanation.
|You and your family have just rented an apartment and one or two problems occurred.|
Write a letter to the landlord.
Describe the problems and tell him what you want him to do.
Yes you are right. This is a letter of complain and suggestion combined.
Examiners will be looking for the purpose of the letter in your first body paragraph. Let’s take this band 9 scored essay. Can you find the purpose of the letter?
|Dear Mr Smith,|
I am writing regarding the amount of noise coming from the new canteen which has just opened near my University residence. Although I am pleased that we have this facility, the restaurant remains open up to midnight each night, and as a result there is considerable talking, shouting and the sound of motorbikes continuing until about 12.30 each night.
