General Training Task 1 model answer 19 – Noisy neighbours


IELTS General Training Task 1 Writing model answer 20You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.

New neighbours have recently moved in, but they are making a lot of noise at night while you are preparing for your exams.

Write a letter to your neighbours. In your letter:

  • explain that they are preventing you from studying well
  • suggest what they can do to improve the situation
  • tell them when you will have completed your studies

You do NOT need to write any addresses.

Begin your letter as follows:


Write at least 150 words.

Dear neighbour,

First of all, let me welcome you to the neighbourhood. I am sure you will enjoy living here.

However, I do have a concern that I would like to address with you. I am currently in the final semester of a course I have been attending at the local college, and in the coming weeks I will be sitting the final examinations. In order to prepare, I find it essential that I have both a quiet place to study and am able to get a full night’s sleep, yet the volume of your music during the evening and night is causing some issues for me as I am unable to concentrate or sleep soundly.

I am not suggesting that you stop playing your music, but I would be grateful if you could lower the volume after about 10 p.m., and perhaps also shut your windows? My examinations will be over by the 18th, but until that time I would be appreciative of a little consideration.

Your neighbour,

Mark Smith
