You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.

Your local hospital has advertised for people to do unpaid work helping at the hospital. You would like to do some work at the hospital in your free time.

Write a letter to the hospital. In your letter:

  1. Explain why you would like to do the unpaid work at the hospital.

  2. Say what type of unpaid work you would be able to do.

  3. Give details when you would be available for this work.

Write at least 150 words.

You do NOT need to write any addresses.

Begin your letter as follows:

Dear Sir or Madam,


ANSWER: 169 words

This is an answer was written by one of my students during in class practice.

I used her country of origin rather than her family name.

Her real IELTS exam score for writing was 7.0

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am writing in regards to the volunteer work at the hospital and I would like to use my free time to help others.

The main reason that I would like to do this unpaid work is because I am studying to be a nurse and I believe this experience will help me to understand how to deal with patients and their families.

Apart from all my knowledge in nursing, I can help with some extra activities such as singing and playing guitar. I have been doing these activities over the last two years as a volunteer as well and it is a wonderful way to encourage and give hope to all those who are at the hospital for some reason.

Moreover, I am on holidays at the moment, so I am available every day from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm. When my classes return, I will be available to work on Saturdays.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Yours faithfully,

Tayla Brazil.
