IELTS Letter - Noise Complaints

by Mthakar

You are living in a University residence, and you have a problem with the high levels of noise from a new campus restaurant which is open until midnight.

Write a letter to the governor of the University. In your letter,

• complain about the situation
• say why this is a problem
• and propose ways to reduce the noise


Dear Sir or Madam,

I am writing this to express my annoyance with noise that comes from the new campus restaurant which stays open until midnight. I live right next to the restaurant and at times, it becomes troublesome because the restaurant is always crowded with students and the music they play is always loud, thus it gets very much noisy.

I am a medical student, and my exams are around the corner. I really need to focus on my studies, or I am afraid I would not be able to achieve desired grades this semester. Also, I am not a local resident, therefore I don’t have any other place to go for studies. I and some of my classmates who often study together are really having a hard time dealing with this situation.

I would like to request you to take an appropriate action to help us overcome this problem. I would recommend putting restriction on number of students that can visit at a same time, also ask restaurant to keep the music system’s volume down.

Hoping to hear from you soon on this.

Yours faithfully,
May Brown
