task response
Ensure that the letter addresses all aspects of the task prompt, including clear communication of your needs, preferences, and purpose for contacting the property agent.
coherence and cohesion
The logical structure is somewhat unclear. Organize your ideas into paragraphs with clear topic sentences and supporting details to improve coherence.
lexical resource
Expand your range of vocabulary to express your needs and preferences more precisely. Consider using more varied and sophisticated language to enhance the letter's overall quality.
grammatical range
Incorporate a wider variety of complex grammatical structures, such as conditional sentences, relative clauses, and passive voice, to demonstrate a more advanced command of grammar.

Word Count

IELTS says that you should write a minimum of 150 words in writing task 1. If you go under word count you will lose marks in task response.

A very long letter will not give you a higher band score.

Aim for between 160 to 190 words in writing task 1. This will ensure a concise letter and will be realistic in terms of time management. You have only 20 minutes to write the letter and you need around 5 minutes of planning time, so you will not be able to write a long letter in 15 minutes.
