IELTS G.T Writing Task 1: Recently moved to a different house.

Shifted to new house

You’ve recently moved to a different house. Write a letter to your English speaking friend. In your letter:

  1. Explain why you’ve moved.
  2. Describe the new house.
  3. Invite your friend to come and visit.

Okay. This is a letter to your friend. So, you’ve got to make it a bit informal. Not in terms of language (you can’t use slangs), but in terms of style. For instance:

“Dear Suzan,

I’m happy to inform you that I’ve moved to a new house in London. As you know the previous house ……….. (explain why it was NOT good. Why you didn’t like it)”. Let me give you a few hints:

  • It was far from your college/ place of work. Consequently, you had to travel 2 hours every day.
  • It was too small for your family.

Now, explain why new house/ residence/ home is a better place to live.

“Unlike my old house, this one has spacious rooms ………”

Finally, it’s time to invite your friend to your new abode.

“Since you’re visiting London next week, let me invite you to my home. I’m sure you’ll love it and we’ll spend some quality time playing cards and watching your favorite movies.”

Something like that…..

That’s it. We’re done. Easy, isn’t it?

Well write your answer and share it with us. We’ll look forward to it.

    Dear Zinia,
    I’m so sorry that I couldn’t give a prompt reply to your wonderful letter. I was really busy for rearranging my furniture as my family has shifted to a new house. Due to ever increasing house rent at city center we as a family decided to move to newly developed suburb area.
    However, it’s a fabulous one-story detached house with a small but excellent garden. If you see this typical three bed room house, you will love it at first sight due to its modern interior. The best part of it is the spacious kitchen where the walls and the cabinets are painted with the same shade of white to give it a larger look. Moreover, the open airy layout of the house is also perfect for my migraine to heal.
    Why don’t you come on next week end? I have a great plan to enjoy the day with you.
    Warm wishes.

    Busy in (not ‘busy for’); in the city center (not ‘at’); My family (instead of ‘we as a family’); Suburb is an area (do not use both suburb and area); No need of ‘However’; It is a (instead of ‘If you see this typical’); with (instead of ‘you will love it at first sight due to its’); Moreover = Also (do not use both in the same sentence); visit (instead of ‘come on’).

    Here’s a version after making suitable changes. Please note all the ‘a, an and the’ added. You’ve missed their usage at numerous places. Some grammar and structure issues. Overall answer was nice. I can award you 7.0. Words = 150+

    Why don’t you visit my new residence next weekend? I have a great plan to enjoy the day with you.
