Dear Sir or Madam , I would like to enquire about a lost item. I went to Goulburn
weekend with my girlfriend for the holidays and we stayed in your hotel for 3 days, the date is from 24th March to 27th March and the room number is 314A. I think I left my watch in the room is a green colour face, the strap is metal and made in Korea.
In addition
, it is very important to me for the reason that I got it from my grandfather when I got married. I think I left my watch in the restroom because I remember I took off it on the toilet sink when I was washing my hands before leaving the room.
, I think that my watch might be in the toilet. I would like grateful if you could check it for me.
, if you could find it, could you return it to me by post? My address is 123 abc st Sydney NSW and my contact number is 123 111 1234. 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.
