Topic 1 (Formal)

You have a full-time job and are also doing a part-time evening course.

You now find that you cannot continue the course

Write an email to the course tutor in about 150-200 words

Describe the situation

Explain why you cannot continue at this time

Say what action you would like to take

Sample Answer

Dear Sir,

I am a student in your class, Soft Skills Training. I wish to inform you that due to unforeseen contingencies, I will not be able to pursue my course further. The apparent reason is that I do a full-time job in the daytime, and attend the class in the evening. Earlier my mother was there to take care of my kids in the evening: however, she is gone to our native village for some property dispute.

During the morning time, my children go to school, and they stay there till 6 pm. After that, they come back home and being immature, need someone to take care of them. My wife comes back around 10 pm from her job. Therefore, I have no other option but to leave this course.

However, I am deeply impressed with your coaching methodology and would like to enhance my communication skills under your aegis. Although I can’t continue with the offline study, I can pursue online classes from the course.

Waiting for your reply

Yours sincerely,

Rimple Sharma

Topic 2 (Informal)

One of your friends recently had a birthday celebration, but you missed it and you forgot to tell your friend that you could not attend. Write a letter to your friend. In your letter:

Apologize for missing the birthday celebration.

Explain why you missed it and why you didn’t tell your friend.

And say what you would like to do to show that you are sorry.

Sample Answer

Dear Andrew,

I am doing good, and I hope you are also in the pink of health. Kindly accept my sincere apologies for not attending your birthday bash. I know it might have upset you, but the situation was not in my control and despite knowing well that it could widen the gap between us, I didn’t call you.

That day, I had planned to reach the party at 6 pm, and I was about to leave my office at 5 pm. Suddenly I got a call from one of our overseas clients, who was in turmoil because of a bug in his website. I tried to help him by fixing the problem: however, it took me six hours to solve. And by the time I was free, the time was 11 pm. I wished to leave the work in between for your celebration, but I stopped because it could have tarnished my company’s reputation.

Anyhow being your bosom friend, I won’t let you feel down. As your wedding anniversary is coming on a weekend, I have planned to make it an enchanting evening by throwing a party at my home. All our college buddies will be a part of that bash. Come with your family, and we will have a gala time together. To pamper your appetite, I will cook your favourite mouth-watering delicacies.

Let’s meet this Saturday to have guffaws of laughter.

Best Regards,


Topic 3(Complaint )

Writing an E-mail – Complaint to Local Government
(27 minutes/150-200 words)

You live in a house near a park. Recently, a lot of teenagers have been meeting in the park at night. They are very noisy.

Write an email to the local government in about 150-200 words.

Your e-mail must include the following points:

Provide information about where you live.
Explain the problem and how it affects your life.
Suggest a way to solve the problem.

Sample Answer

Dear Sir,

I am Navneet Kaur, a resident of Sinderson Street, Vancouver. I am writing to complain regarding teenagers. At the late night, they group in the park daily.

We have to wake up early because we have to go to the office and the children must go to school. They create a lot of disturbance by speaking and laughing loudly. Not only is it impacted by enormous pressure on our minds, but also physically because of lack of sleep.

With the help of the park community, all the houses follow the stringent yardstick rules for timing. However we told them many times, but they did not understand anything. As a result, they are making colossal mistakes with health and mind.

All the residents should also follow the rules, and we must inform their parents to care for the children.

I look forward to seeing how my suggestions translate into prompt action from you. Your cooperation in this matter is greatly appreciated.

Yours sincerely
Navneet Kaur

Topic 4(Complaint )

You recently purchased a furniture from renowned furniture brand,

Write a letter to manager complaining about the poor quality of the furniture in about 150-200 words. Your email should do the following things:
Give details of the nature of the complaint,
Request for immediate repair or replacement as needed.

Sample Answer

Dear Manager,

I am writing to complain about the sofa I bought from your famous renowned furniture store on Sunday. According to my living area, It is a customized sofa with a square table. I have already informed your assistant manager regarding the length; it should be 9 feet with the brown couch color.

When I received the sofa at home, It was 1 foot smaller than the actual size, the color of the couch was black, and the quality of the product was not good. I am your regular customer because of impeccable service, but I was shocked when it did not fit in my living area, and it is unpleasant service for me.

Please replace or repair the sofa on priority with the care of my customization. Furthermore, it would be best to focus on better product quality because the company’s reputation thrives primarily on customer feedback.

I look forward to seeing how my suggestions translate into prompt action from you. Your cooperation in this matter is greatly appreciated.

Yours sincerely,
Vivek Goyal
