You have seen an advertisement in the local newspaper for swimming lessons at your community sports centre. You want to find out more about these lessons. Write a letter to the manager of the sports centre. In the letter ● describe how well you can swim at the moment ● explain why you want to learn to swim better ● enquire about the time and cost of the swimming lessons

Dear Sir or Madam , I would like to enquire about swimming lessons. I have seen an advertisement in the newspaper for swimming lessons, so I would like to apply for it. When I was young, I learned how to swim, and I went to the swimming pool
, I could not swim well as I thought.
, I think I need to learn how to swim again. Actually, I like water sports.
For instance
, surfing, scuba diving and kayaking.
, when I was doing that there were not many problems. But, I just wanted to swim
which was a bit matter to me. Because I could not breathe well and move well.
As a result
, I decided to learn to swim for a safe life and enjoy water sports as well.
In addition
, could I ask about the courses' time and cost? I prefer
due to
the fact that I usually work from Monday to Friday.
, if I could I would like to participate in
lessons. I look forward to your answer. Yours faithfully , Yoo

Structure your letter

A letter needs to be written using a proper format, including the following:

  • A greeting (Dear sir/madam, Dear John, Dear Mr. Smith)
  • The main body (consisting of paragraphs for each part of the letter)
  • A closing (Yours sincerely, Yours faithfully, Best wishes, Kind regards, Love)

When writing a letter as part of the IELTS General Training Writing Task 1, it is important to include the bullet points presented to you in the question.

All three bullet points need to be presented. And remember that some bullet points contain more than one element. So, make sure to watch for ‘and’ and plurals.
