General Training Model Answer – IELTS (Task 1)

You are unhappy about a plan to make your local airport bigger and increase the number of flights. You live near the airport.





Write a letter to your local newspaper. In your letter

Explain where you live

Describe the problem

Give reasons why you do not want this development




Dear Sir or Madam,



I read about the future plans of the local government to extend the airport in Queens to allow a greater number of flights. As I live less than 1km away from the airport, I was not happy when I found this out.



I have already experienced numerous problems in the past even when the airport was a smaller size. The airport was built after I had settled in the area so I had to double glaze all my windows to prevent the noise from coming through. This of course was expensive. Local residents suffer from breathing problems due to the pollution and we are unable to hang our clothes outside to dry as they become dirty. Our children are also unable to enjoy playing outside in the garden when the planes are flying low. All these problems will increase when the airport becomes bigger.



We have become accustomed to living in the area but I believe any further developments at the airport will have a negative impact on the way we live and therefore do not support it.



Yours faithfully,



Maria Gomez
