Model Answer:
My favourite food is fried rice with vegetable and chicken curry with salad. This is in
fact the most popular menu in our country. The rice is first boiled in water and then the
boiled rice is fried with some chicken and vegetables and oil. The chicken curry is
prepared separately using some spices and chicken and finally the salad is prepared using
different vegetables and fruits and then those are cup into pieces and mixed together with
mustard. Then these three items are served together.
I eat this menu approximately 3-4 times in a week. This menu is prepared at home mostly
and sometimes I eat it in a restaurant. There are some variations in the way this food is
prepared and the ingredients using which this food is made. Different restaurants have
their own specialty in preparing and serving this menu.
This is my favourite food for many reasons: firstly it is very delicious and healthy. This
menu meets the demand for different food values our body needs. It is available in most
of the part in our country. Thirdly, I like it as it offers the variations of tastes. Moreover, it
is not that much expensive to prepare and does not require o much effort to prepare. For
all these reasons it is my favourite food.

Dear Sir,
I am writing this letter to your newspaper to protest about the development of our local
airport where I live.
My home is situated in Bogra city near the Bogra International Airport even more than
two hundred people, including children and older people, are living here. There is a
beautiful park in front of my home, where most people pass their leisure time playing,
walking, and gossiping.
A huge noise is created especially at night when the air plane comes or departure in the
airport. If the number of flights is increased, the noise will also raise in the local area.
This could result immense embarrassment on the people in particular for the children
because they need quiet environment for their study purpose.
Moreover, the airport authority wants to expand the area; so, our lovely park, which is
essential for every person of this locality, will be diminished. For these reasons every
person of our locality is against this proposed development. If you agree with me, please
publish editorials to your newspaper to protest this unnecessary and detrimental
I am looking forward to hearing from you soon.
Yours faithfully,

Sample Answer:
Dear Sir/ Madam,
My name is Ravibabu and I am currently residing at Seven Hills. I use trains to commute
for my work and the recently changed train timetable causes problem to get to my work
on time.
I used to get the train at 7:40 am from Seven Hills and usually reached at my destination
around 8:50 am and it was about five minutes walk from the station to my workplace. It
was more convenient to reach my office on time.
The 7:40 AM train no longer stops at my station and I am forced to take either 7:15 AM
or 7:58 AM train. If I am taking the train at 7:58 AM and arrive at my workplace by only
9:05 which is late for my office. The 7:15 AM train is too early to get in. I also checked
with fellow passengers who are also struggling to get to the work on time.
I request you revisit revised train timings and reinstate 7:40 AM train to stop at our
station, which will enable me or fellow passengers to travel to work on time.
I am looking forward to hearing a positive reply.
Yours Sincerely,

Dear Sir/ Madam,
I am writing this letter to inform you that I had given the radio for repair and it is still not
ready even after one week.
I had bought the radio from your shop as it is one of the best available shops. But, it was
mere disappointment when the brand new radio wasnt working as it should be. I talked
to your representatives in the shop and they agreed to repair it within a couple of days.
Now, it has been a week and radio is not yet ready. Whenever I call on shop phone
number, one of your salesmen always promises to deliver the radio with in one day. But it
was never delivered and all I got is apology and regret.
Please repair the radio by day end today as it is already much delayed. If it is not
possible, kindly provide me with a new radio of same branch and model.
Thank You.
Yours faithfully,

Dear Prof. Jandriya,

I am writing to formally request to withdraw from two courses: Introduction to
Elementary Education (EDU602) and Teaching Methods (EDU 619)
The main reason for reducing my course load is that I am finding it extremely difficult to
manage six courses. In the beginning of the term, I was perhaps overly optimistic about
juggling both my full time studies and my part time job (20 hours/week). Because I really
must work part time, I have no other choice but to decrease my course load. I am
planning on taking the two courses during the summer semester, if they are available, so
that I will be able to complete all the courses for the degree program by the following
I would also like to request a tuition refund, and hope I am not too late to receive the full
reimbursement. I am sorry for any inconveniences I have caused by this change in plans.
This decision was not taken lightly, and I do appreciate the kind consideration you have
shown to me.
Thank you for your attention to these requests. If you have any questions, please feel free
to contact me at 277-9144. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
Sincerely yours,

Dear Sir,
I have been a part-time fitness instructor in your gym for four months. I was pleased to
be offered the job, not only because I need to earn some extra money to cover my living
expenses but also because I need some experiense in fitness training.
It has been obvious to me that people often need help in using the gym
equipment.However, it seems that the other trainers have not been encourage to offer
assistance to club members. I offer as much as I can, but this means that I am constantly
in demand and therefore, working harder than anyone else in the gym. This situation
seems rather unfair.
While I realise that members receive initial gym instruction, I feel that they also need
ongoing help with the equipment. Could I suggest that a letter is sent to trainers
promoting this? After all, personal attention of this kind makes people feel valued and
may result in increased membership.
Yours faithfully
Donald Green
