IELTS Task 1 Letter to Accommodation Officer

by Jha

Please can you rate my GT Writing Task 1:

You live in a room in college which you share with another student. However, there are many problems with this arrangement and you find it very difficult to work.

Write a letter to the accommodation officer at the college.

In the letter,

•Describe the situation
•Explain your problems and why is it difficult to work
•Say what kind of accommodation you would prefer.

Dear Accommodation Officer,

I am writing this letter to bring to your notice about the various problems I am facing with the room I am living in. I am sharing this accommodation with another personm which I found difficult to live with and all this is hampering my work too.

The major problem with shared accommodation is no two persons are alike and their thoughts do not match. We have have very different styles of living. i work in morning shift ( 9 AM till 6 PM) and my roommate works in day shift (1PM – 10 PM). Whne he gets back to home he watches Television and carries on with his stuff but all these activities of him disturb me a lot. He sleep late and I have to wake up early, therefor, I am unable to sleep properly. All this is affecting my efficiency at work.

I would therefor, request you to please provide me a single room accommodation to help me survive better.

Yours faithfully,

My try on Letter to Accommodation Officer
by: Anonymous

Dear Sir,

I am writing this letter to express my dissatisfaction and discomfort that I have been going through with my current room. I would like to request for the new arrangement.

I am final year student, and I have my finals next month. However, I am unable to concentrate on my studies due to my roommate. Even though my roommate is a nice guy, but his certain behaviors, like noisy phone calls, loud music, and late night coming are having negative effects on my studies. Furthermore, he frequently brings his friends to our room and party with them till late night. I have tried several times to explain my situation to him, but everything is same. I need to score good marks for my future employment, and I hope you will consider my request seriously.

If possible, I would like a single room. However, in case if it is not possible, I would like a roommate someone who is serious with his studies, preferably someone from the final year. Moreover, I would like a noise-free room, probably on the top floor without shared terrace or balcony.

I hope you will take the appropriate actions as early to your convenience.

I am looking forward to hearing from you soon.

Yours faithfully,
