CELPIP Task 2 Survey Response Sample

RE: Paternity Leave Survey

Dear Mr. Johns,

I am writing this letter to you regarding our company’s paternity leave policy survey. Support for this policy,  from both my co-workers and me, would be very strong since the transition to parenthood can be very stressful, and most of us feel that having a little more time would relieve much of the anguish.

The first two months for new parents are usually the hardest. Hospital visits and checkup appointments consume a great deal of time and emotional energy and often conflict with office hours. That conflict dramatically increases the anxiety level of working fathers and negatively impacts their performance both at home and at work.

The potential for the new policy to be disruptive in the short term is high, particularly for managers and team leaders; however, much of that disruption could be assuaged by allowing new fathers to work from home and delegating some of their duties during their leave.

In the long term, I believe the new policy would add some flexibility to the rules of employment that would result in increased employee loyalty.

    Dear Sara,

    Belated happy birthday to you!

    Hopefully, you are in great spirits! Please accept my apologies for not being part of your birthday celebration, but I’m making up for it via this email; at least I hope so!

    On that day, when I was about to leave for your birthday event, I got a call from my neighbor saying that her son got injured while playing in the garden and she want me to take them to the hospital. I couldn’t deny it and did what was required in that situation. In such an emergency, I could not even ring you to tell you that I’m not coming.

    I’m hoping you will understand the matter and forgive me, However, In order to compensate for this, I have arranged a dance party at my place this Saturday at 8:00 pm. I have invited all our college friends to the party. Can’t wait to see you soon!

    Please accept my apologies once more!

    Best Regards,

  2. Hi, please could you help evaluate below task 1 and 2 Celpip.

    Task 1
    Dear Manager,

    I am writing this letter in regarding with the order that I did yesterday in you restaurant. I am a old customer in your restaurant.

    As I say, I ordered yesterday a pizza with specific ingredients. I am allergic to pepper and when I did the order a choose some ingredients to build my own pizza, but unfortunately things not happen the way I ask. My pizza came with pepper, and I would not be able to eat. I was starver and I had a bad surprise with that. I tried but if I had eaten bad things could been happen me because of my allergy. I tried to speak with your waitress, but the services were very bad.

    I believe your restaurant should be take more attention the way that waitress attend customer. However, I considered that your restaurant must have to do something for me, as I mention I am your customer for long time ago. I suggest you give me a coupon or a gift card with no limit date to spend in your restaurant, for example.

    I hope looking from you an answer about my situation.

    Task 2

    Cities with shopping complex are very attractive for communities and visitors as well.

    I considered that is important small towns have shopping mall because is more affordable for their community spend time there and turn things easier, for example, people do not need drive or take public transport to go to a mall. Unfortunately, in my city we need to drive or take the bus to go a mall or movie theatre. Is a small town and we do not have this attractive things near to us.

    On the other hand, restaurants and large supermarket give us more options when we are looking for different things or something specific and most of the time are concentrate in shopping mall as well. For example, for big brands is better have stores in these places because the impact will be large in different segments.

    In short, I believe when a town is coming out with large areas, is important take attention to create attractive places such as malls for communities.

  3. Hello Angela could you please review and comment on my CELPIP task 1 and task 2 and overall how much would be my score than you.

    Dear Manager,
    I am writing this email in regarding to the product which I have purchased at your department store few days back. I purchased a set of china tea cups but when I reached home and unpacked it unfortunately few tea cups were broken.

    I immediately took the receipt and rushed to the store, inorder to exchange the damaged goods with a new one but to my notice I was so shocked with the reckless behavior of your department staff and the way they responded to my situation, they totally refused to take back the tea cups and replace me with a new one even though I had the receipt for the purchased product. I am sorry to say this but, your staff lacks proper customer service and zero knowledge of how to handle such critical situations.

    Inorder to resolve this issue I would like you to compensate me with a new set of tea cups or a refund of whole amount immediately when I visit the store.

    Looking forward for a positive resolution to this problem. Thank you.


    TASK 2:
    According to my opinion I would prefer that the available area can be used for library purpose rather than a conference hall. Libraries can be useful to gain much more information as well as spending quality personnel time for brainstorming new ideas for all age groups and for retired officers too.
    Having a library in the officers club can be beneficial for the club members as well as other individuals too. It can help teenagers access to books for their educational purposes and also be a great help for developing writers to spend their time focusing on writing in a silent and calm environment which is available at library. However they can even refer to books which can help the writers to come out with great ideas and publish books which can be sold at our library.
    Apart from this, club members can conduct book fairs through which they can attract book lovers to attend and raise profits for the wellness of the club.
    In conclusion I would say that in this modern world full of technology many lost their insight about libraries benefits inorder to manifest it back this area in the club should be utilized for a library.

    Please evaluate below task 2 for celpip.

    I like to opine in favor of option A, printing more local and worldwide news would much prominent to readers rather than offering huge discounts, I will share my viewpoint in this survey.

    Firstly, nowadays news is an essential part of our life which gives us better knowledge of what sort of things are happening around us. In our city your newspaper has marvelous testimonials, people have been believed only your paper has accurate news from top to bottom around us and internationally. I strongly recommend you to introduce a weekend special edition more news about debates which occurring on climate change this will help people to educate how the scientist is keeping their efforts on their commitments.

    On the other hand, having more discounts for subscribing to newspapers doesn’t make any sense without having proper content or matter on news. Offers can increase your revenue but not faith in your newspaper.

    To sum up, I have stated above my viewpoint to print a lot of news instead of focusing on discounts. By reading the news people can gain better general knowledge and how to move in this era. I appreciate the chance to provide to me to voice my opinion.
