General Writing Sample Task 1 #42
You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.
A friend of yours is going on holiday soon and has asked you to recommend a destination.
Write a letter to your friend and recommend a good place for a holiday that you have visited before. Say where you went, where you stayed, what you can do there and what the food was like.
You should write at least 150 words.
You do NOT need to write your own address. Begin your letter as follows:
Thanks for your letter. I‛m glad you and the family are well. So, you‛re thinking of going on holiday in the UK. Well I can certainly recommend one destination for you. I went one year to a place called Lochinver in the north west of Scotland. It‛s quite a long trip to get there as it‛s only about thirty miles from the north coast but it‛s worth it.
There are only a few places to stay. There are two hotels, the Kirkaig and the Assynt in the centre of town, and a campsite just outside town. We stayed at the Kirkaig Hotel but I know you and your family are keen campers so you might prefer the camping option.
There is a lot to do but it‛s a bit dependent on the weather. There‛s a beautiful beach, a golf course, the fishing is excellent and there are fantastic hills nearby for walking in amazing scenery. If it‛s wet there‛s a small cinema in town but that‛s about all. Take some board games!
The food is typical British in the hotels but some of the Scottish specialities are fantastic. If you‛re camping though, food will be up to you!
Anyway, I‛ve got to go out now and pick up the kids. Write again if you need any more information.
