You bought a TV a week ago but when you got home you discovered it did not work properly. You called customer service to report the problem but you have not yet received any help.

Write a letter to the company and in your letter

  • introduce yourself
  • explain the problem
  • and state what action you would like from the company

Write at least 150 words.

You do NOT need to write any addresses.

Begin your letter as follows:

Dear Sir or Madam,

Answer:

Dear sir or madam,

My name is Amit Shah and I am one of your frequent customers. I am writing this letter to report the faulty TV that I purchased from your company on Tuesday last week.

On Tuesday, 12 June, I visited your store following a recommendation from friends to buy a Samsung LED TV which has the code 40L657B40. On purchasing this TV, I was assured that this was the latest model and the best buy. However, after installation of the TV in home, I discovered that not only the remote control is unreliable but also the quality of the picture is quite blurry. I immediately called your customer Service Department which assured me of the replacement with a new TV within 2 days. I am disappointed to state that neither replacement nor repair has been undertaken by your people. Worst! the communication since then from our side is not even being properly responded.

I am exceedingly displeased with both the quality of the product I purchased from your company as well as the poor service I have received since. I hope this problem will be resolved promptly. I expect to receive a replacement TV or have my current TV repair but only if it could be fixed within a day.

I look forward to hearing back from you immediately. Thanking you for your attention.

Yours faithfully,

Amit Shah

You recently read an article in newspaper about someone you know personally. You found some information is wrong.

Write a letter to the editor to inform him about it. Use following points:

  • What is the article about?
  • What is the error?
  • What you expect an editor to do?

Dear Sir,

I am John Wright from London. I am writing to you regarding the recent article you published about Sir David Markham last week, April 2nd, in The Times newspaper.

The article recounts a brief biography of Sir David’s life and then continues to focus on his work and the impact it has had on modern politics. The biography starts with his birth in Edinburgh and his later move in 1962 to the Durham University. From there, it focuses on his work with the UNESCO.

I would like to bring an error in your article to your kind attention. Documentation shows that Sir David did not attend the University of the Durham, in 1961. In fact, he took a gap year in Europe working with a volunteer program and then joined the university in 1962. I know this as I worked with him in the same camp and became friends with him. His year abroad, which is absent from your article, forged a foundation of his philosophy of life and his work in later years.

I hope you will publish this rectification in the newspaper. Sir David’s work is still of immense importance and people should know the significance of that year’s gap in his life.

Looking forward to a positive reply.

Yours faithfully,

John Wright

Dear……..,

Dear Mr. Sinha,

I am writing to you to request that you to allow me to pay my rent late this month.

I’ve been a tenant with you for many years now, and, as you know, I have always been punctual in paying rent. However, currently, I am having a few financial problems.

Last month, I was forced to search for a new assignment as the company I work for is closing down. Also, I spent all my savings on my younger brother’s tuition for engineering. To make matters worse, since the company is shutting down, I have not received a redundancy payment, therefore leaving me short of money this month.

I can assure you that I will be able to pay the rent on the 15th of next month. I have now found another job, and they have kindly agreed to give me an advance on my wages, but they are unable to arrange this until next week.

I hope this will be acceptable to you, but please contact me if it is a problem.

Kind regards,

Sumit Gupta

Last month you had an overseas holiday with some friends where you stayed at their house. They have just sent you some holiday photos.

Write a letter to your friends.

In your letter:

  • Thank them for the holiday and the photos
  • Explain why you didn’t write earlier
  • Invite them to come and stay with you

Hi John,

How are you? I hope this letter finds you well. It has been a while since we interacted. I was planning to write to you for long but could not manage.

Firstly, thank you so much not only for such a memorable holiday in Sydney but also for the lovely photos that you dispatched of the holiday. I was eagerly waiting for them to show to family friends here. I must say all the photos are quite wonderful as they brought all memories back to me so vividly.

Sorry, it has taken me so long to write back and say thank you, however, as soon as I landed back in India, I had a much-awaited job interview. Hence, I was busy with preparation for the same and the real interview. I have finally landed a job for myself in my dream company Zenta Motors as a Design Engineer. Unfortunately, I am shifting to Bangalore as the company’s headquarters are there. So, with all the shifting and new job, I could not write earlier.

Next month, I am planning to have a reunion with all our college friends who are now staying at my new place in Bangalore. You must come without any excuse and of course, you must stay with me as my new accommodation has plenty of room. I will pick you up at the airport.

Take care and write back soon.

Warm regards,

Sagar

You are about to go on a vacation. A friend from another town shall come and stay in your apartment.

Write a letter to this friend. In your letter

  • Explain where your friend can get the key to the apartment
  • Give your friend some instructions about using your apartment
  • Recommend some place to go

Answer:

Dear Sanjay

I hope this letter finds you in pink of your health. Thanks for agreeing to stay in my house for a month while I am on a trek in the Alps.

When you will reach Pune next month, you will find the apartment key with my neighbour Mr. Mane who is a war veteran. The old age may have hampered his movement and do call him in advance.

Once you enter the apartment, reconnect the LPG burner as I will have it disengaged for safety. The milkman delivers milk early in the morning and the housemaid follows to cook the breakfast. I have updated both about your stay and I am sure they shall follow your specific instructions. You may use the washing machine and other electronic equipment as you please.

In case you are bored, you may visit Old Pune where you shall see the past glory of the Maratha Empire. Especially, the Kelkar Museum and the Shaniwarwada are a treat for the history lovers who, I know, you are. You may also choose to explore the nearby markets which have foods exclusive to Pune. Being a foodie, I am sure you will cherish those.

In case needed do give me a call. Thanks in advance for looking after my house.

Love,

Sonali

One of your friends has asked you to be a partner in his new business.

Write a letter to reply to your friend’s offer.  In your letter

  • Give your opinion about friend’s business ideas
  • Tell him whether you have decided to accept his offer
  • And explain your reasons for the decision

Dear Harshad,

It was nice catching up with you on Shrikant’s housewarming party the other night. Also, it was very generous of you to discuss your future entrepreneurial venture and to invite me to join in.

After understanding your model of business, I did my research and I happen to agree with a majority of the ideas. Specifically, I approve that, the void of IT applications in Human Resources is a huge opportunity in future.

Honestly, I was a pleasantly surprised when you offered me to come on board as a partner and more than happy to accept it.

Our friendship goes long back in time and I am sure with our coordination, we can hit the market well. Moreover, our backgrounds offer us skills that are mutually exhaustive and thus complement us to kickstart the operations as soon as possible.

Hope to catch up soon tomorrow to discuss further. Thanks a lot for kind gesture of joint business endeavour.

Warm regards,

Niraj

You recently went on a trip with your friend and you both took some photographs.

Write a letter to your friend. In your letter

  • Ask your friend to send you one of the photographs
  • Explain why you need that particular photograph
  • And tell your friend what happened to your copy of it

Dear Sameer,

I hope you find this letter in good health. I still remember the last trip we had, last May to the jungles of Gir with our families.

En route we clicked numerous photographs of wild, but one of them which was the highlight of the endeavor was that of 10 lions together in the wee hours of the morning. Lions in India are rarefied and so, the photograph you clicked is a rare gem. I would be very happy to receive a raw copy of it.

I think this click will suit my son, Rohan’s latest science project on wildlife for the tenth standard.  Firstly, the photograph captures the beast in its full glory and secondly, the original work rather than just plagiarism work will elevate the quality of his project.

I still have a copy of it on my WhatssApp however, it is far from impressive to print it in the project. Moreover, the hardcopy shared with Rohan was misplaced in his school-bus. Even after multiple searches in school, the bus and at home we could not recover it.

I hope you find some time from your busy schedule to dispatch the raw copy as already mentioned. Call me if needed. See you on Suresh’s housewarming party in next week.

Thank you in advance.

Warm regards,

Ashish

There is a problem on a road outside your home.

Write a letter to your local councillor. In your letter

  • Introduce yourself
  • Explain what the problem is
  • tell the councillor what you would like to be done

Answer:

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am Dipankar Banerjee from Ward No. 57 residing in Lane No. 5, Prabhat Road. I am writing this letter to draw your kind attention to the inconveniences caused by potholes on the road in our locality.

Since last election season, nobody has bothered to maintain the road and as result, the tar road, which is busy day and night and has sustained heavy monsoons, has worn off to give way to big potholes. These potholes on busy road results in a traffic jam. School children find it difficult to cross the road while office-goers need to leave homes early lest they miss office. Senior citizens cannot walk on the footpath as impatient bikers hop onto it in evenings.

As a concerned citizen, I urge you to tackle this problem on war-footing and repair the road as early as possible. I am sure my neighbours won’t mind a closed road for a week than suffer a perpetual problem.

In the context, may I request you to consider the matter out of your busy schedule? I am eagerly waiting for your response. Thanks for your attention to the letter.

Yours faithfully,

Dipankar Banerjee

You and some friends ate a meal at a restaurant to celebrate a special occasion, and you were very pleased with the food and service.

Write a letter to the restaurant manager. In your letter

  • Give details of your visit to the restaurant
  • Explain the reason for the celebration
  • Say what was good about the food and the service

Answer:

Dear Sir,

I am Ankit Singh, who visited your restaurant last weekend. I am writing this letter to extend my gratitude for being a generous host on Saturday evening.

We were a party of 6 classmates who had not met for last 10 years but somehow bumped into each other that afternoon. Since we could not book a table at the last moment, I thought of visiting your place, a decision I am proud of.

As you might have guessed, we were revelling a pleasantly surprising reunion of the friends after a long time.

For such a gathering, we found your place to be perfect. When we entered the restaurant, the helping staff greeted us with a welcome-drink and after listening to our story offered a poolside table. Mr. Singh was a perfect host who could suggest a perfect menu for each of us based on preferences. I must also appreciate the efforts your band puts in creating a tranquil yet positive mood.

We all thank you for the evening.  Looking forward to an excuse to visit the restaurant again.

Yours faithfully,

Ankit Singh

Dear Sir or Madam,

Answer:

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am Saurbah Tiwari, an IT professional from Pune, India. I am writing this letter to enquire for rented accommodation in the city of Sydney for my family of 5 members.

My wife works for an IT firm, and will continue to work for the same company in Sydney as well. We have a daughter who is six years old and looking forward to join primary school over there. Also, my parents also live with me who are retired, but fit enough.

Looking at our family, a three bedroom apartment is preferable. I expect a well-equipped kitchen as my wife is an excellent chef and likes to give a try to variety of cuisines on weekends. Additionally, at least one reserved car park is essential as my company is offering me a car.

As far as transportation of other family members is concerned, we will be very happy nearby metro station and market as my wife can travel without hassle. Keeping my young one and parents in mind an accommodation in quiet suburban area nearby a primary school will be a great idea, as we need not worry about their safety.

In the context, may I request you to search for suitable accommodation? I would appreciate an early response.

Yours sincerely,

Saurabh Tiwari
