General Training Model Answer – IELTS (Task 1)

Your neighbours have recently written to you to complain about the noise from your house/flat.

Write a letter to your neighbours. In your letter

Explain the reasons for the noise


Describe what actions you will take

Dear neighbours,

I have received your collective letter of complaint about the noise coming from my flat and I would like to provide you with an explanation for this temporary upset.

As you are aware my father-in-law is staying with us for a few days. He has a severe problem with snoring and due to his old age he sleeps many hours throughout the day. As the walls in our block are not sound proof, Mr. Russel in Flat 101 is subjected to this irritating noise coming from the bedroom where my father-in-law is staying. I am truly sorry for this disturbance.

My father-in-law is being admitted to hospital in two days time for an operation to stop the snoring. Following the operation, he will return to his own home. I can assure you that the silence will return to our peaceful block soon.

Your kind consideration in this matter will be appreciated.
