CELPIP Writing Test Sample 1

Mock CELPIP Writing Test

Email or Letter

Most of the time, CELPIP refers to task 1 as an email, but occasionally, it calls it a letter.

Regardless of whether CELPIP refers to Task 1 as a letter or as an email, the format and requirements are the same.

One-on-one Mock CELPIP Writing Test

If you would like to spend an hour with me doing a mock CELPIP Writing test for one task, I’d love to hear from you.

Typically, during a mock writing test, we write your response together. As we write, we discuss the important things that are critical to your score.

Many students record their mock test session so that they can review them after our session is finished.

During this hour, you also have time to ask any questions and pick my brain about any concerns you may have about the test.

Just text me at 613-614-6460 and we’ll set up a convenient time that works with your schedule.

The cost of a Mock test is $40.

“…I got my 9, and I’ve completed my PR application!… Thank you Angela …”

If you would like detailed feedback on your written responses without scheduled class, please submit them to my writing correction service.

CELPIP Mock Writing Test 1

The CELPIP Mock Writing Test 2 is intended to give you some free practice as you prepare for the CELPIP Writing test.

You’ll find the first CELPIP Writing Test Sample here

You’ll find the second CELPIP Writing Test Sample here.

I know how hard it can be to know what your examiner is looking for when you prepare your responses for writing tasks 1 and 2.

I’ve done my best to prepare a couple of Mock tests along with pages for each of the writing tasks so that you can get an idea of what your CELPIP examiner is expecting to see in each response.

There are a couple of pages for CELPIP Writing Task 1 providing you with step-by-step instructions for writing an email.

The CELPIP Email Request page shows you how to format an email when you need to ask someone for something. It’s usually some type of information, but it may also be a request for help. Typically, this email requires you to write in a formal style. Remember not to use contractions in a formal email!

The CELPIP Email Complaint page shows you how to write an email complaining about something. Typically, in this email you’re expressing your dissatisfaction with a service or a product. Most of the time, a complaint email is formal, so make sure you sign off with ‘Regards’ and your full name.

The CELPIP Email for sharing information also has a page. In this type of email, you’re sharing news about something that has happened to you with someone you know. This email is normally informal, so here you can use lots of contractions and sign off with your first name.

CELPIP Writing Task 2

I’ve also created a couple of pages with step-by-step instructions for CELPIP Writing Task 2. In this task, where you’re writing a survey response in response to a prompt, it’s important to follow a basic ‘Opinion Essay’ structure.

Examiners want to see that you can develop a complete introduction where you outline your main ideas, paraphrase the prompt, and state your opinion. In other words, your examiner wants an idea of what your going to be saying in your two paragraphs.

Your examiner also wants to see that you develop you main ideas fully and stick to the point. She doesn’t want to see lots of unrelated information, so make sure that everything you say supports your main idea. Often, in this situation, your best approach is to say more about less!

Obviously, in both tasks 1 and 2, your examiner wants to see good grammar and punctuation, abundant sentence variety and tenses, and lots of appropriate expressions and efficient language.

  1. You and your family visit the local shopping mall every week. However, it has become more and more difficult to find a parking spot recently. You would like to let the shopping mall manager know about this problem.

    Write an email to the mall manager in about 150-200 words. Your email should do the following things:

    Describe the problem you are having with the mall’s parking.
    Explain what you and your family have to do in order to visit the shopping mall now.
    Provide some suggestions for how the mall manager can solve this problem.

    Dear Manager,
    My name is Mindy. I am writing this email to complain about your facility of the mall. I have been a loyal customer at your Metropolis mall for the past 10years. I always satisfied about your every services, However, Recently I had never had this kind of bad experience.
    My family visited the mall to buy my son’s birthday gift but we could not come into the mall because of parking. So, we was driving near the mall more then an hours. Even, there were far from the parking lot therefore, we walked 20min. to arrive the mall.
    More and more there was difficult to find parking lot and always fully parked.
    I am very disappointed with the parking space and I feel you need to be aware of what has taken place.
    Considering what has happened, I think that you should extend the some space for parking
    I’ll be looking forward to your reply.
    Best regards,
    Mindy

  2. Task 2 (Survey): City Development Survey

    You live in a small town of 10,000 people. A large green area in the centre of town is undeveloped. The city has sent out an opinion survey to see what residents would like to have built in that area.
    Choose the option that you prefer. Why do you prefer your choice? Explain the reasons for your choice. Write about 150-200 words.

    Option A: Shopping Complex: This shopping mall would include restaurants, a large supermarket, and a movie theatre.
    Option B: Recreational Park: This park would include a sports complex, a large green area, and a small petting zoo.

    Ans:

    In my humble opinion, a recreational park would be a better option and will be far more beneficial than a shopping complex.

    In a recent article that I read in a local newspaper, I found out that about 40% citizens of our town are younger than 18 years. Therefore, a recreational park in the heart of the town will be extremely helpful for their physical and mental growth. Also, the sport complex may play a vital role in preparing the new generation for national and global sporting events.

    Moreover, as the retirement homes are just a stone’s throw away from the area in question, the senior citizens will be able to take benefit of the green area for their personal well-being.

    Furthermore, the petting zoo could be great tourist attraction and have the potential to contribute to the town’s revenue.

    These are the few points due to which I believe a recreational park is a better pick. I am very thankful for taking my input into consideration and hope I was able to assist in determining what is a better fit.

  3. Your city is planning to ban public smoking. The city has sent out an opinion survey to see what residents think about it.

    Option A: Smoking should be banned in public places.
    Option B: Smoking should not be banned in public places.

    I strongly believe that city should ban smoking in public places because smoking is injuries to health. Now-a-days, smoking is increasing rapidly, mostly youngsters are getting addicted to it.

    Firstly, people who are smoking in public places are not only affecting their health but also others who are around them like seniors, infants and teenagers. Moreover, smoking causes lung cancer, heart diseases as well as it also effects respiratory system which leads to asthama problem.

    Secondly, instead of inhaling fresh air they are breathing polluted air due to smoking which is hazardous to our health. Even though after imposing strict rules like high fines and no smoking sign in public places still city government is unable to control this issue.

    Finally, if smoking is banned in public areas, it will promote a healthier lifestyle for everyone. People will see it as a government endorsement for a healthier lifestyle of everybody.

    Considering the above reasons, smoking should be prohibited completing in public places where everyone can lead healthier life.

  4. You have bought a new mobile phone and in a few days after purchase it has stopped working. You spoken to the company representative a week ago but the phone has still not been repaired.

    Write and email to the company in about 150-200 words. Your email should include the following things.

    Introduce yourself.
    Explain the situation.
    Say what action you would like to company to take.

    Dear Sir/Madam,

    My name is Oliva Smith and I reside in Toronto. I am writing this to express my concern regarding new mobile phone which is not yet been repaired. Last week, I have purchased Iphone 11 worth $5500 from apple store. I was delirious that I have finally bought my dream phone with my first salary.

    Unfortunately, from one week my mobile is not working. Even though after connecting to adaptor for more than one hour I am unable to switch on the phone. Moreover, I have contacted your customer care representative on 25th of October and explained clearly about the issue. He said to bring it to the store, so that they will upgrade the version and change the battery. However, I did not receive any resolution and waiting hours were more than expected.

    Therefore, I request you to kindly look into this issue as early as possible. Either provide new phone instead of this or repair current mobile if it is not a damaged one. I have warranty card for the period of one year, so I expect free service from your end.

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Yours faithfully,
    Oliva Smith.

  5. Your university has organized a tour to Toronto city. Your friend lives in Toronto.

    Write a letter to your friend about an educational tour organized by your institution.

    Ask your friend about the tourist place in around the city.
    Request your friend to arrange a weekend party for your classmates accompanying you.

    Dear Wilson,

    I hope you are in good health. I am writing this to inform you that I will be visiting to Toronto in mid of next month for an educational trip organized by my university. I am contended that I am going to meet you after six years.

    Since you are living in Toronto from six years, I hope you have a pretty good idea about renowned tourist places in and around the city. So, if you could share with me the list of few places then my friends and I can visit those places during our educational tour.

    Moreover, we are staying here for only one week, so I thought if you could arrange a party on weekend, we can spend some time together and revive some nostalgic memories. Even my friends want to join us as they want to meet you. I am pretty sure that they will enjoy your company.

    Let me know your thoughts. I hope to see you soon.

    Best regards,
    Oliva Smith.

  6. Park Use Survey

    Your community centre is surveying your opinion on a new event happening every Saturday in the park near your home. There are two events being considered. One suggestion is a vegetable and fruit market. The other suggestion is a second-hand furniture and appliance market.

    Option A: I would like to have a vegetable and fruit market every Saturday in the park.

    Option B: I would like to have a second-hand furniture and appliance market every Saturday in the park.

    I strongly believe that, having a food market on Saturday near the park will not only beneficial for our community but also generates good income to the greengrocer.

    Firstly, during the week end most of the residents go to supermarket by travelling miles away from the home to get the groceries, instead, if the idea of setting up the mart near the garden it can save the time and also we can have the fresh organic fruits which were directly taken from the farms.

    Secondly, when compared to the supermarkets vegetables and fruits are affordable in this retail, in addition, it is not only tax free but also sold as per our requirement.

    To sum up, having a grocery market on week end would save the time consumption also it helps the store keeper to set up wide variety of fruits and vegetables, which enables to attract the customers, thus it leads to have a profit making business.

    1. Score 8. You’re right to think of the gerund as singular, but the ‘will’ has to be followed by an infinitive without ‘to’ (having a food market… will…generate…)

  7. You and your family visit the local shopping mall every week. However, it has become more and more difficult to find a parking spot recently. You would like to let the shopping mall manager know about this problem.

    • Describe the problem you are having with the mall’s parking.
    • Explain what you and your family have to do in order to visit the shopping mall now.
    • Provide some suggestions for how the mall manager can solve this problem.

    Dear Sir/Madam,

    I am writing this to bring to your attention about the difficulties we are facing in the parking spot during a visit to your shopping mall. Every week, my family and I visit to your galleria to spend some time with each other.

    However, there is a problem in parking space. Due to petite space, most of the car holders are facing issues while taking out the car. In addition, there are no proper arrangements in the parking area for two wheelers and four wheelers.

    Despite of having parking spot in your mall, we are parking our car in a nearby lane behind recreation center which is one kilometer away from your commercial center. This is not only causing problem to my entire family but also to public who are visiting your shopping complex.

    Therefore, I would like to suggest a solution. Kindly arrange another parking space behind the shopping mall, so that four wheelers will park separately, and two wheelers will park in the cellar which will reduce contentious issues between public.

    I am optimistic that you would take this into consideration and arrange other alternatives to avoid obstacles in future.

    Yours faithfully,
    Oliva Smith.

  8. You recently returned to Toronto from sanfrancisco. But your luggage got misplaced.

    • Write an email to the manager of the airport. Your email should include the following things.

    • Provider details about your flight
    • Claim compensation for the lost luggage.

    Dear Sir/Madam,

    I am writing this to express my concern about the lost luggage in your airport. My name is Oliva, recently, I have visited to San Francisco for a conference meeting as well as site seeing. Yesterday, I have returned to Toronto in an evening flight in emirates and exactly I was landed in your airport at 6:00 PM.

    Soon after that, I went to collect my bag near baggage belt. Since, one hour I was waiting for my luggage unfortunately I could not find my bag. Moreover, I have complained in “Lost and find department” about my luggage. It was red in color with black strips on it and a keychain which contains my name on it and it is engraved with a pencil.

    Furthermore, my baggage contains essentials documents, books, clothes and cash. So, if my suitcase is found anywhere, please contact me to this number 9002345678.

    As I bought this bag for $300 dollars which is expensive, so if my luggage is not found, I urge you to claim compensation for the lost luggage upto 80 percent on the total amount.

    I am looking forward to hearing from you.

    Yours Faithfully,
    Oliva Smith.

  9. Printer Survey

    Your boss thinks paper is unnecessary because everyone has a computer and access to the internet. Your boss wants to take away all the printers so that people use much less paper. Other people think that this will be very inconvenient. Your boss asked you to respond to an opinion survey about whether to keep the printers.

    Option A: I think we should keep the printers in the office.

    Option B: I think we should have a paperless office with no printers.

    Now-a-days, more than half of the population are using soft copies instead of using paper manually. I strongly believe that we should use less paper in office without printers. By reducing usage of papers saves cutting down trees, other pollution and saves time and energy.

    Firstly, everyone has access to internet, so we can save all our documents in our mail as well as in our documents folder. Therefore, it is the most secured place where no one access it. Even though, if any document is misplaced in our system, we can find it with in a second. Were as this is not possible if we use physical papers because once it is stolen or lost it cannot be retrieved.

    Secondly, less usage of printers not only saves electricity but also money. In addition, we can also use that space for other purpose. For instance, we can use that space for lockers which is used to store mobiles and bags.

    Finally, less usage of papers will reduce additional burden for workers where they can contribute that time in another work.

    Considering the above reasons, paperless documents are more convenient when compared to physical documents.

  10. Your apartment manager is surveying your opinion about the swimming pool in your building. Currently, your building has a swimming pool, but it is really old and needs to be renovated. Some tenants prefer to have a small gym instead of a pool. The apartment manager has asked you to complete an opinion survey.

    Option A: I would like to keep the swimming pool.

    Option B: I would like to have a gym.

    In these sedentary lives, everyone is neglecting their health due to workload or other issues. So, I strongly believe that we should have a gym in our apartment instead of restoring swimming pool.

    Firstly, most of neigh bours in our apartment prefers going to gym which is 5 kilometers away form our residence. In spite, of travelling to that place if a gym is arranged in our flat it will not only save our time but also money.

    Secondly, going to gym have many benefits. It increases fitness, improves sleep, gives stress relief, and increases socialization with others. Moreover, it prevents from many contagious diseases as well as we can have fun will doing exercises.

    Finally, swimming pool can be used only for swimming and relaxing. Although, most of them knows swimming, no one uses it due to water quality, weather changes, no time or health issues.

    Considering the aforementioned reasons, having a gym would be much better instead of renovating swimming pool.

  11. You recently made reservations for dinner at a very famous and expensive restaurant in town. However, the meal and the service were terrible. The restaurant manager was not available to solve the problem, so you left without a resolution.

    State what problems you had with the food you ordered. Complain about the service. Describe how you want the restaurant to resolve the problem to your satisfaction.

    Dear Manager,

    I am writing this to bring to your notice about the dissatisfaction I faced when I visited your restaurant. Your restaurant is famous for its ambiance also it is meant for dainty food.
    However, when I order chicken soup with bread crust, I had to wait about forty minutes to get the order to my table, when my order is about to be served, the waiters were so reluctant, that he just passed the soup with three fingers in the bowl, little drops of soup were spilled over the table, I felt embarrassed at that moment, in a hungry I just had one spoon of the soup, it was one of the worst experiences I have ever faced, it was taste less and not hot as I expected also the fried bread pieces were not served timely, later when I was about to complain to you, I learned about the unavailability during that time.
    Hence, in order to avoid all these things, do contact with your staff and teach them to be respectful towards the customers and pay attention towards while serving the food.
    Considering the above mentioned reasons, kindly make the necessary changes.

    Yours faithfully,
    David

  12. City Development Survey

    You live in a small town of 10,000 people. A large green area in the centre of town is undeveloped. The city has sent out an opinion survey to see what residents would like to have built in that area.

    Option A: Shopping Complex: This shopping mall would include restaurants, a large supermarket, and a movie theatre.

    Option B: Recreational Park: This park would include a sports complex, a large green area, and a small petting zoo.

    I strongly believe that by building a multiplex centre in backward area, it will not help the city to be developed, but also creates an employment opportunity to the people in the city and suburbs.

    To start with, now a days most of the people are going out to spend the day in different places, such as once they done watching movie, they will go out to have lunch, there after if they want to buy some use full items again they have to go to super market to buy the things they want.

    As a result, it leads to too much of time consuming in travelling also by the end of the day most of the people would be exhausted, by keeping these things in mind if multiplex is build many of the people would be benefited by getting the things done at one place only.

    In contrast, a recreational park would only allow to visit the petite zoo and watch the sports events, I believe it will not create much impact on the mass audience.

    Hence, building a shopping mall would generate revenue to the government, rather than building the recreational park in the city centre.

  13. You recently graduated from university. You have just been interviewed for a new job. The interviewers liked you and they are interested in hiring you. First, however, you need a letter of reference from a teacher at your university that explains your strengths.
    • remind the teacher about who you are
    • provide information about your interview
    • ask for a reference
    Dear Sir/Madam,
    I am writing this mail to seek reference letter from you. My name is Lazar from Master of Business Administration group of class B section, I have recently graduated from our college and I was the second topper of the batch secured with ninety seven percentage, I hope with this information finds you remember me.
    Firstly, when I attended the interview on last week, I was skeptical about the last round of interview, however when I saw the confirmation mail, I was glad to see that I have been selected as the Quality Analyst position in Amazon company with a good package of thirty seven thousand per annum.
    Although, I cleared the final call, there was a catch that I need to provide them a statement about my abilities and my strengths from a teacher to show as proof, so i request you to provide detailed description about me, so that I can show this reference letter to the employer.
    I look forward to hearing from you

    Yours faithfully,
    Lazar

  14. Field Trip Transportation
    Your children’s grade 5 class teacher likes to take the children on field trips to museums or parks. Sometimes the teacher takes the children on public buses. Some parents are unhappy. They say the school should always use school buses even though it is more expensive. You have been asked to respond to an opinion survey.
    Option A: Public Transit: I think it’s okay for children to travel on public transit.

    Option B: School Buses: I would prefer children only travel on school buses.

    I strongly believe that school buses are the safest mode of transport for the students to travel.
    To start with, some of the school teachers wanted to use the mass transit to take the children on field trips, however, using the public transport may not be good and safe as the school buses. Because busline system only operates on particular stops and routes if we missed to board on the buses we need to wait until the next bus arrival, while school buses are operated by the staff assigned to drive, with the clear instructions to the bus driver they will drive safely and stops the vehicle when ever and where it requires.
    Although, the cost involvement is more due to the maintenance of the yellow buses it is necessary to take precautions for the children and make sure their safety first.

    To sum up, in order to ensure the safety, it is better to use the transport facility provided by the school instead of using the public transport.

  15. You were searching on the internet for a used car, and found one that looks like it is in good condition. The seller has posted a photo of the car, but has not provided any other details.

    Tell the seller how you found out about the car.
    Ask about some specific details about the car.
    Explain how much you are willing to pay for the car.
    Request that the seller meet you so that you can test drive the car.
    Dear Sir/Madam,

    I am writing this email regarding the online ad which you have posted on Sellyourcars.com site.

    While I was scrolling through all posts on the site, I found your car as the best one among other cars.

    Firstly, I would like to know about the history of this vehicle such as when this car was bought and since how many months it is been used moreover, I would like to see the registration certificate in order to ensure that it is registered under our province.

    As per the current market trend the average price of this used car is ranging between twelve hundred dollars to fourteen hundred dollars, here I would like to pay you thirteen hundred dollars, since it is trending in the market.

    Furthermore, I would like to meet you in person so that I can have a look at this car and have a test ride to ensure about the working condition of this car.

    I Look forward to hearing from you.

    Yours faithfully,

    Simon

  16. Childcare Survey

    You work in a very big office. There is a popular and cheap restaurant in the building. The boss is thinking of removing the restaurant and replacing it with a childcare facility for the working parents in the office. You have been asked to respond to an opinion survey.

    Option A: I think we should keep the restaurant.

    Option B: I think we should replace the restaurant with a childcare facility.

    The idea of removing the restaurant and replacing it with a childcare facility would be the better option, I strongly believe that having creche would make the working parents lives easier, because it will not only make them focus on the regular works but also be free from strife.

    Although, restaurants is a popular one in our the workplace, in-fact it is cheap one where as many of the employees are not preferring to go to that restaurant and we need to understand that there are almost 30 percent of the staff who have become parents recently, in these sedentary lives taking care of childrens and having a separate baby sitters at home would be costlier when compared to join them in a day care Centre.

    By setting up the facility centre in the office, our company reputation will be increased and makes the workers to boost up the work, which will result in good quality and production of the work.

    Considering the aforementioned reasons, building childcare facility is the best option instead of keeping the restaurant open.

  17. Your son has been experiencing some difficulties at his elementary school. He has been unhappy for several weeks. You want to talk to his teacher.

    Describe the problems your son is having.
    Suggest some solutions to the problems.
    Make an appointment with the teacher to discuss the problems and your solutions.

    Dear Sir/Madam,

    I am writing this email to bring to your notice that my son is been facing some challenges in the school, the reason is because he is a dwarf, due to genetic disorder his height is just 2 feet 3 inches. Being Short stature, my son is being bullied every day and gets humiliated every time. Thus, causing him to be depressed all the time.

    Since, it is becoming a tough job to face these challenges regularly, I would like to suggest you a solution. Firstly, make him to sit in-front of teachers, so that other class friends will not disturb him during the classes. Secondly, as he is clever student make him to clear the doubts of dreary students, so that it will not only make him feel positive but also lose fear of mortifying.

    As, I will be available for next two days, I would like to meet in person and discuss about the difficulties and best possible alternatives to make my son get rid of these obstacles.

    I Look forward to hearing from you.

    Yours faithfully,

    Simon

  19. You recently made an online purchase and the product was not the same as the description on the website.

    Write an email to the website department in about 150-200 words. Your email should do the following things.

    What you purchased and when.
    Exactly how it is different from the website description.
    How would you like the company to fix the problem.

    Dear Sir/Madam,

    I am writing this to register a complaint regarding the incorrect information that your company is providing on your website. Last week on September 01, 2022, I have purchased iPhone 11 worth 5,500 dollars from your online website. Moreover, I was delirious when I received the order early.

    However, I was dismayed when I opened the order. It was not exactly same as shown in the picture. Indeed, I was wondering that I might have choosen another color instead of White color. In addition, it was also mentioned that it has 40 mega pixel camera as well as 5gb RAM. But when I checked my mobile, it was entirely different from the description shown in your website.

    Therefore, I would like to suggest a solution. Before posting any information about the product, ensure that you are providing precise and accurate information to the customers. It is not only beneficial to your company but also to the customers.

    I am optimistic that you would take this into consideration in order to avoid consequences in future.

    Yours faithfully,

    Oliva smith.

    By setting up the facility centre in the office, our company reputation will be increased and makes the workers to boost up the work, which will result in good quality and production of the work.
    Considering the aforementioned reasons, building childcare facility is the best option instead of keeping the restaurant open.

  22. Online vs. Print News Survey
    Your local newspaper is experiencing low sales of its newspapers since many readers are now choosing the online version. Its current number of online subscribers is now three times the number of print subscribers. The newspaper has sent a survey to all of its print and online subscribers to see whether there is enough demand to keep the print version.

    Option A: Stop producing the print version of the newspaper.

    Option B: Keep producing both the print and online versions.

    I would recommend using local news papers to produce both the print and online versions. As there are many people who does not know how to use the internet, they would prefer reading the news on hardcopies only.
    Although, the number of users who prefers reading the online versions are increasing rapidly, but most of the people from country side are still using the hardcopies of news papers because it not only reaches to every store but also create an employment opportunity to the local people who are looking for jobs.
    In addition, as the technology is increasing day by day, most of the people are using online applications to read the latest updates and share it among the people, which not only saves time and money but also saves environment.
    To sum up, i strongly believe that using both the print versions would be better for the people read the articles.

  24. You are a college student. Your school is offering $2,000 to one student: this money will be used to pay college fees. The school is inviting all students to explain why they should get this award.

    Write an email of about 150–200 words to the college. Your email must include the following points:

    • a description of what you are studying at college
    • why you are interested in your studies
    • a statement of how well you are doing at college
    • your future plans

    Dear Sir/Madam,

    My name is Oliva. I am pursuing Master’s in Business Administration course in your college. I am writing this to request you to offer this award of two thousand dollars to me, so that I can use it to pay for college fees.

    Since childhood I have shown keen interest in my studies to gain knowledge and become competent because my goal is to become a businesswoman. In addition, I enjoy reading books and also, I can focus on my unique strengths.

    Moreover, I have secured highest marks in first semester, and I have finished each task assigned to me in given time. In addition, every lecturer in our college appreciates me for the hard work and dedication shown in studies.

    Therefore, I have decided to start a small business of food truck after postgraduation in our province. Now-a-days, food truck has become more popular. It can commence with less investment and can earn more profits. Eventually, it is beneficial to the owner.

    I am looking forward to hearing from you.

    Yours faithfully,
    Oliva Smith.

  25. Scent-Free Workplace Survey

    Your manager is surveying your opinion about a scent-free workplace where perfumes and strong smells are not allowed. Many other workplaces in the city already have this policy.

    Option A: The workplace should have a scent-free policy.

    Option B: The workplace should allow people to wear scents.

    I strongly believe that workplace should have a scent-free policy. Because it saves people who are allergic to scents and fragrances. Moreover, it is implemented to promote environment without fragrances.

    Firstly, there are various groups of people who are suffering with migraine and headache due to the strong smell of perfumes. For instance, one of my friends, Oliva, she never applies perfume because it will affect her health.

    Secondly, others who are suffering with asthma will also get affected due to strong odors. It will not only affect their respiratory system but also makes them difficult to breath. Therefore, it is better to avoid fragrances in workplace to save them from serious health issues.

    Lastly, workplace is meant for everyone. So, keeping in mind about peers, everyone should follow scent-free policy which will protect them who are sensitive to such smells.

    Considering the above reasons, workplace should have fragrance-free policy instead of allowing employees to wear scents.

  26. In the mail, you received an advertisement about the opening of a new department store. The advertisement said that they have many items at special low prices. However, when you went to the store, you could not find the items.

    Write an email to the department store manager in about 150–200 words. Your email should do the following things:

    • Explain why you went to the opening. Received email
    • Complain about the store not having the items they advertised.
    • Describe how you would like the store to fix the problem. Correct and accurate

    Dear Sir/Madam,

    I am writing this to register a complaint regarding the false advertisement of having many items in your new store. I was really delighted when I received a mail from your store about inauguration of your new branch. So, I visited your store with my entire family, and we were excited to purchase all the items available in your store.

    However, my family and I was dismayed because the items which were mentioned in the advertisement were not available. Moreover, it was also mentioned that these items would be sold at discounted prices, but everything was totally different when I saw the menu. I was wondering that I might have visited to another store instead of visiting yours.

    I would like to suggest a solution. If you are advertising about your store, ensure that you publish precise and accurate information instead of erroneous details.

    I am optimistic that you would take this into consideration and take appropriate precaution to avoid inconvenience in future.

    Thank you for your time.

    Yours faithfully,
    Oliva Smith.

  27. Last weekend you attended the Canada Day community picnic. The event was a potluck, so everyone brought a dish of food to share. Some people, including you, have allergies or can’t eat some types of food, such as nuts and seafood, so you included a list of ingredients with your dish. No one else did this.
    Write an email to the community picnic organizer in about 150-200 words. Your email should do the following things:
    • Express your overall enjoyment of last week’s event.

    Dear Community picnic organizer,

    I would like to thank you for organizing such great event last week, it was a great pleasure to be a part of the get to-gather also not to forget about the palatable dishes, which everyone bought and shared among the group.

    Most importantly, i have noticed that there are many people who did not specify the list of ingredients used in their dishes and i am the only person who has given a brief description of the additives used, as some people are having health issues such as allergies they do not eat seafood and nuts, as a result they might fall into serious illness.

    Finally, by taking into consideration for few people, we need to have a separate stalls installed for vegetarians and non-vegetarians and In-front of each item they need to have a display board containing what the spices and elements have been used in the dishes, so that everyone can have a look on the items and enjoy the dainty food.
    By looking into the aforementioned reason(s), kindly make a note for the next year biggest event

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Yours faithfully,
    Smith

  28. You and your co-worker often have lunch in a nearby park. However, there have been too many birds in the park lately, especially the pigeons who want your food. The situation is spoiling your lunch break.
    Write an email to the local newspaper in about 150-200 words. Your email should do the following things:

    • Describe the importance of the park to you and your colleagues.

    • Suggest what the newspaper’s readers, or city officials and park managers, can do to improve the situation.
    Dear Sir/Madam,

    I am writing this email to let you know about the difficulties i am facing while having the lunch.

    Firstly, as we do not have enough space in the cafeteria and crowded with all other staff we are finding it difficult to sit and have our lunch over there, so the best option we opted is that we can have our lunch in the park with peaceful surroundings, which will not only help us to eat the meals without any disturbance but also we can enjoy the nature.

    Most importantly, during the lunch hours the pigeons and other birds are not allowing us to eat quietly with their chirping noise also it is snatching away the food from our hands, as a result, we are not able to eat the food properly moreover, our break time is extending for a while, which is causing our daily work life.

    Lastly, we can avoid this problem causing by the feather creatures by building a garden shed in the corner of the lawn, so that we can have our food without any disruptions.

    I would appreciate if you take this into consideration to avoid inconvenience.
    Yours faithfully,
    Smith

    Dear Sir/Madam,

    I am writing this to bring to your notice about the inconvenience caused by your company representative. Since, four years I have been using your internet service due to the seamless data and time management.

    Recently, I have relocated to Ontario with my family for my Masters, so I need to set up Wi-Fi at my home. Therefore, I have already made an appointment for today evening at 6:00 pm. However, no one has arrived at the scheduled time instead of raising many tickets.

    I would like to suggest a solution. Kindly, re-schedule the date and time to fix this issue as soon as possible. I am optimistic that your company will provide prompt response.

    I am looking forward to hearing from you.

    Yours faithfully,

  30. You were searching on the internet for a used car, and found one that looks like it is in good condition. The seller has posted a photo of the car, but has not provided any other details.

    Write an email to the seller in about 150-200 words. Your email should do the following things:

    • Tell the seller how you found out about the car.
    • Ask about some specific details about the car.
    • Explain how much you are willing to pay for the car.
    • Request that the seller meet you so that you can test drive the car.

    Dear Sir/Madam,

    I am writing this email to ask you about the details of the car which you have posted on the internet. Since few weeks, I was searching for a used car in many websites. Certainly, I have found a Picture of your car in AutoTrader.ca website which is eye catching. In addition, it is one of my favorite cars which I wanted to purchase.

    Therefore, I would like to ask you few details about the car. Firstly, what is the condition of the car? Secondly, do you have insurance for the car? Furthermore, when did you purchase the car and what is the model of your vehicle?

    Though it is a used car, I would like to pay Three Thousand dollars. Because as per the current market rate your car value ranges between Three Thousand dollars to Three Thousand Five Hundred dollars.

    I would like to meet you in person to finalize the amount as well as I can go for a trail to ensure that the car is in good condition. Please let me know your availability.

  31. You are taking an English writing class at a local college, and your instructor is surveying your opinion about the final exam. Currently, half of the course grade is based on a three-hour final exam written in class. However, your instructor is considering allowing students to submit a five-page report instead, which they would write at home.

    Choose the option that you prefer. Why do you prefer your choice? Explain the reasons for your choice. Write about 150-200 words.

    Option A: I would prefer to write a three-hour final exam in class.

    Option B: I would prefer to write a five-page report at home.

    I strongly believe that three-hour final exam in the class would be the best option. Because it will make students to work hard to score good results for their bright future. Moreover, It will give them complete understanding about what they have learned in English language writing class.

    Firstly, if final exam is conducted in class, then students will not counterfeit from others. As professors will have eye on every student. Furthermore, it will not only improve memory power, but also helps them to overcome failures.

    Secondly, in the final exam students will use their own ideas to answer the questions given in the questions paper. It will improve time management as well as self-confidence which plays a significant role during exams.

    Lastly, where as in five-page report at home it does not have particular time period, and instead of using their creative ideas students will search information in websites, articles, newspapers or they might take help from others which makes them to be dependent.

    Considering the aforementioned reasons, Three-hour final exam in class would be much better when compared to Five-page report at home.

    • Describe why you enjoy going to the coffee shop.
    • Explain the problems with the coffee shop.
    • Suggest how the problems could be solved.

    Dear Sir/Madam,

    I am writing this to bring to your attention about the contaminated tables and seats in your coffee shop which I have been observing past few weeks.

    Basically, I love coffee especially during evenings. Every day, after office hours I visit your coffee shop to meet my friends where I can spend hours together with them which is not possible anywhere else. In addition, I prefer to read books in your coffee shop instead of my home because of the pleasant environment and beautiful ambience. It will not only refresh my mind, but also makes me feel relaxed from any disruptions.

    Apart from this, there are few issues with the coffee shop. Firstly, tables and seats are quite dirty, so sometimes I used to clean them up to avoid flies in the surroundings. Secondly, waiting hours are quite longer than expected.

    Therefore, I would like to suggest a solution for this problem. Either you should appoint additional staff to reduce waiting hours or train your existing staff for better service in order to avoid inconvenience in future.

    Thank you for your time and consideration.

    Dear Mr. Smith,

    I am writing to inform you that I cannot be able to support the receptionist work temporarily until she is back form lunch. In addition, I do not have experience in answering calls and helping clients. Therefore, I sincerely apologize for not helping you here, as I have another work to complete it in the meantime.

    Unfortunately, I must wind up the project work which is supposed to present it in the upcoming meeting which will be held in our conference hall tomorrow at 6:00 pm. So, I have to finish the work and deliver to our management by the end of the day without any delay. Moreover, our senior management will not tolerate if the work is not finished within the given time.

    However, I would like to suggest a solution. One of my friend’s, Gaurav, who is working in the sales department, has experience in customer service as well. If you agree with it, I can ask him to help you and also I can ensure you that, he will not dismay you.

    I am optimistic that you will take this into consideration. Please let me know your thoughts.

    Yours sincerely,
    Peter Parker.

  35. Dear Sir/Madam,

    I would like to register a complaint. I currently live in Whistler, a small 3 bedroom house overlooking the village green. We moved here in the fall of 2013, however since then some of the kids have started meeting up in the park at night and causing a lot of noise.

    While I feel this would be fine in the early evening, it becomes a problem when it carries on until midnight. Sometimes even later than that!

    My job requires me to work early mornings, I need to be alert and friendly throughout the day. Being woken up several times throughout the night is definitely having a negative impact on my work performance.

    While I have tried to ask them to keep the noise down on numerous occasions it has been to no avail. I feel I have no recourse but to contact you now in the hopes that you could enforce some form of curfew on the park. I would suggest no loud noises after maybe 9pm or 10pm. The local residents and myself would much appreciate your consideration on this matter.

    Yours sincerely,
    Gwen Smith.

  36. Dear Sir/Madam,

    My name is Peter, father of Jayson Smith. My son is studying in the fifth grade in your school. I am writing this to inform you about the difficulties he is facing from few weeks.

    I have noticed that from last week Jayson seems to be depressed, so when asked he shared that he has been bullying by few boys in the classroom. Due to this, he is afraid to go to school. Moreover, he is not even showing interest in his studies.

    I would like to suggest some solutions in order to stop bullying in future. Firstly, you can arrange meeting with their parents who were troubling my son to resolve the issue. Secondly, I can talk to those boys, and make them realize about their behavior.

    I would like to meet you in person to discuss the ongoing problem with suggested solutions. Please let me know your availability.

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Yours faithfully,
    Peter Smith.
