IELTS General Task 1 Correction: Visit A Foreign Country.

You are planning to visit a foreign country. Write a letter to your friends and say

– Where and when do you plan to go?
– What are the details of your plan?
– Why do you want them to go with you?

20 minutes, 150 words at least.


Dear ABC,

I hope this letter finds you in good health. I am writing this letter to invite you to join us on a trip along with your wife. Please allow me to elaborate on the plan situation(invite and plan are crucial to your letter. It is NOT a situation.) (You can choose a more friendly tone since this is an informal letter: It has been a long time since we went on a trip to East Asia in 2011. My wife and I are planning a similar trip to Europe and it will be exciting if your family joins us.) 

You see, I and my wife and I are planning to visit Paris and London in the last week of this month. We would be covering the major tourist spots and doing adventure sports activities such as bungee jumping and rock climbing etc. All the accommodations have been already booked and we have an additional space for two people (It seems as if they’re merely a means to fill two places. Please make the tone more exciting and friendly. I have made all the arrangements and took the liberty to book hotels and flights for your family.). Unfortunately, we both don’t do not know the French language and are less familiar with the area. I remember that you are affluent in French the language and have a good knowledge of the surrounding locations (Since you are the only person among my friends who knows the French language and have visited France in the past, I am sure you will make our trip more informative and interactive.). Also, you were planning for a similar trip when I meet you last week. (You’ve written this well. Scores well on all counts. You can just try to improve it by making the tone more friendly.)

I know I am not giving you much notice, but the whole trip was planned in such a short duration by my wife that even took me by a surprise. I would be so grateful to you if you both can join us on the trip. (This seems too formal. Though the notice is short and may disturb your regular schedule, I am sure you will love to venture on another trip to explore the world.)

Your friend always, (Your dearest friend,)
