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

Some people think that having old people in society is a problem as they are completely dependent on their children while others believe that having senior citizen around adds value to the family.

Discuss both these views and give you opinion.

Benefits: Guidance, culture

Problems: dependency

Need to be compassionate about them as they were for you as a child

Owing to the advances in medical fields, average age of humans has transcended prior limits and so we see many elders around. While some may say that it is better to have elder generation around, others feel that they are just a burden. I feel that, having elders around is always a boon.

Elders have immense experience through their share of success and failures which help younger generation through their insights and in fact, can clinch higher peaks of success. While starting my new venture in Information Technology (IT), I consulted my grandfather who used to run a manufacturing company. Although he knew nothing about IT, he provided valuable insights into employee management which came in handy. Moreover, elders are the torchbearers of the culture and share their insights well in major events of life such as marriages.

However, some criticise the role of elders in modern homes. They advocate that seniors meddle into the daily lives of their children and grandchildren. As seniors grow old, they develop this habit of preaching their family and in fact taking their moral down. I would urge such people to look into this problem in some other ways. Probably senile instruct the generation X out of love and their willingness to help. Rather than isolating them, it is the duty of our youth to ensure that seniors are familiar with the technology and are a relevant part of a family.

Looking back it is very clear that elders help their children by through their life experiences and knowledge of cultures and traditions. Although sometimes their instructions may seem like intrusion, we can make them feel part of modern lives. Hence, I can say for sure advantages of having elders around are always more than disadvantages.

Vocabulary

Transcend: surpass, go beyond something

Boon: benefit

Clinch higher peaks of success: achieve higher success

Housing and accommodation has become a major problem in many countries around the world.

What are some of the main factors that have contributed to this problem?

What can be done to help reduce the number of homeless people?

Brainstorming:

Causes: Migration to cities – better education and job – population explosion – higher demand for houses – higher costs – limited lands – Accommodation problems

Solutions: Decentralisation of opportunities

While travelling in my city Mumbai, it is hard to miss the cramped housing and ever-increasing slums. These issues creep in the cities because of multiple reasons and lead to a lack of basic facilities.  The onus to provide accommodation and basic amenities lies with the government to a great extent.

Even after hundred years of industrialization, people from villages migrate to cities in search of better prospects of education and jobs. This rapid migration surges the demand of housing and property rates. Higher demand for housing leads to a deficiency of the land while higher property rates push people to congested vicinities and hence the problems of housing. To illustrate, Pune, a city in India witnesses people migrating people all over the country as the city has developed to be a manufacturing, IT and educational hub, giving ways to unstructured growth and accommodation woes.

To overcome these obstacles, the government must take some instant steps. Firstly, the government must work on affordable housing schemes for the citizen who have already found the means in the city. Let’s take the case of Japan where the government is promoting ‘cubic feet living’, a concept which utilizes the vertical space. Secondly, it should promote the education as well as entrepreneurship in rural parts thereby reducing the current trend of migration and ultimately controlling the expanding cities.

Looking back, centralization of the industrial area as well as means of education and career are major reasons for migration and thus accommodation despairs in cities. These difficulties can be addressed primarily by decentralization of industry as well career opportunities.

Vocabulary

Cramped: uncomfortably small or restricted

Onus: responsibility

Surge: rapid increase

Vicinity: neighborhood

Woes: problems

Despair: Problems

IELTS Essay 14

Child labour is a problem in many developing countries.

What are results of working at such an early age?

What can be done to avoid these problems?

Various forms of issues related to children are rising all over the world these days. One of those crucial issues is children labour. Children are made to work in all sorts of industries like shops, mining, factories, hotels etc. There are multiple reasons for child labour to exist in our modern society as well and hence it is high time we take some actions to uproot it.

Ideally, Children must have education, play and have fun; not work at some workplace against will. Their future is damaged if they earn money but do not have appropriate education as the white-collar job opportunities are shut forever without formal pedagogy. Moreover, these oppressed children lose their self-worth, resulting in aimless lives. Consequently, they may turn drug or alcohol addicts and many of them even may turn out to be lawbreakers and ruin their lives.

To overcome the curse of child labour the governments must ensure free education till 18 so that no parents or caretakers can force children into the quagmires of child labour on the pretext of lack of education fund. Agreed, there can be very few exceptions, where having youngsters is a must – films or dramas for children – we must make children as well as their caretakers aware of their rights so that no kid is harassed even as an exception.

In the end, I would like to emphasize that children should not be compelled to work as the compulsion may lead them towards darks of self-loathe and addictions. They should rather be promoted to pursue their education and awareness of their rights.

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
