Writing Task 1 – You should spend about 20 minutes on this task || (minimum words limit 150)

You play a team sport with some friends. Last week a member of the team had an accident and wasn't able to play with you at the weekend. You decide to write to him in hospital, telling him about the match.

Write a letter to your friend. In your letter,

  • Tell him which team won
  • Describe the conditions on the day
  • Say how you felt about the match

Response 1:

Dear Winston,

I am writing to you with regard to the football match we played two days ago- on Tuesday. The match, I might add, that we lost.

I was joking. We actually won the match. That day, however, was like a bad omen in itself. It had been cloudy the entire day, giving everything a sombre sort of quality. On top of that, your absence had the team feeling out of sorts, sorry sods that they are.

Our team won by scraping it but won, nonetheless. The score was three to four. Admittedly, the opposing team played quite well. We scored the fourth and final goal in the last three minutes of the match. I think that if you'd been there, we would have performed much better, considering you are the best defender on the team and the other team members would have played with higher spirits. We are always stronger as a unit.

I hope you recover soon.

Kind regards,
