В первой части IELTS General бывает несколько видов писем. Официальное письмо-жалоба уже есть на сайте — алгоритм, пример и сами задания. Ниже вы увидите задания для работы над письмом близкому человеку, чаще другу. В таких письмах, как правило, нужно:

  • попросить/ дать совет,
  • извиниться,
  • описать событие (в своей жизни).
