IELTS Letter Correction: Forgot A Wallet.

You have just spent a week with a friend on holiday. When you got home, you realized you have left your wallet there.

Write a letter to your friend. In your letter:-

  1. Thanking your friend for the holiday.
  2. Explain that you have left your wallet in their house.
  3. Give them instructions on how to send it back to you.


Dear Danny,

I hope this letter finds you in the radiant health and the best of the spirits (unnecessary use of article the.). I landed safely at Jalandhar yesterday and decided to write back to you (Unnecessary words that do not add any value.) to thank you for taking out your precious time to capture the beauty of Jaipur with me and making the trip memorable.

Alternate introduction: The last seven days we spent in exploring Jaipur was a wonderful (once-in-a-lifetime) experience. Being a history buff, I loved visiting the city’s innumerable forts and palaces. This would have been impossible without your support and guidance.

Unfortunately, I forget my wallet in your room. Probably, it should be (1) kept (omitting this word makes better sense.) on the sofa behind the dressing table. I think while rushing to get on the flight, I must have missed to pick it. Can you please check at that location? If (missing subject. The clause is incomplete.) not found, then (2) have a look in the drawers of the dressing table. (If you are unable to find it, please take a took in ……)

1. Another placement of probably is with the verb BE. It should probably be on the sofa behind the dressing table.

2. There is no need to write then in ‘If-Then’ clause. The correct construction is: “If X, Y”

When you find trace it, please send it to my place via speed post. The address of my house is 22, ABC Street, Jalandhar, and the postal code is 144008. If not possible, then (same issues as mentioned in the previous paragraph.) If you are not in a position to send it, please handover it over to Mike as he might travel to Jalandhar next week.

I am really sorry for the inconvenience.

Yours lovingly,

Himan Dhawan
