General Training Task 1 model answer 10 – Moving to a new city for work


You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.

You are temporarily moving to a new city for your job. You will be there for three months, and you would like to rent some accommodation for your stay.

Write to an accommodation rental office. In your letter

  • Tell them how long you are staying
  • Describe the type of accommodation you would like
  • Explain what facilities you will need nearby

You do NOT need to write any addresses.

Begin your letter as follows:


Write at least 150 words.

Dear Sir or Madam,

I will be moving to Carrick for three months with a short term placement for my job, and am looking for a suitable place to rent for the period.

Ideally, I am looking for something with easy access to the motorways as I will be spending a great deal of time travelling to nearby cities. I am not particularly concerned with the particulars of the house itself as I will only need a bedroom and bathroom, and don’t anticipate spending much time in the kitchen.

I will, however, need internet access as I will be working at home on my computer and will need to be in touch with my head office throughout my stay.

I will also need to be within a reasonable distance from a shopping area, although it will only be for the essentials like bread and milk.

If you have anything you feel may be suitable, then I would be very interested to hear from you.

With regards,

P Smith
