IELTS General Writing Task 1 with sample answer.
You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.
Write a letter to a friend expressing your interest to seek employment in a different country. Your letter should include:

- what type of work you will be looking for
- questions you have about working in a different country that your friend may be able to answer
You should write at least 150 words.
You do NOT need to write any address.
Begin your letter as follows:
Dear _ ,
I am extremely sorry that it took me so long to write you. I have terribly been busy with the TOEIC exam. You know how it goes. How are things with you? Hope everything is going on smoothly at your end by the grace of God.
Anyway, I want to follow your footstep that I’ve decided to work abroad. Thinking a lot, I have come to the decision that I could flourish my career easily if I work in a foreign country. As you know I have completed my graduation from development studies and I want to involve in projects that aren’t conducted in our country. This will both enhance my skill, and allow me greater exposure to experience for my professional development. I think working in a foreign country offers the opportunity to attain experience of other cultures and working pattern, which is very crucial in a global economy. Besides, gaining experience on global projects early in my career can give me a competitive edge, I believe. However, I’m still confused about which country would be suitable for me. As you have served several years in Asia, please suggest me which Asian country would be a proper place that could tailor my ambition and educational qualification.
I’m eagerly looking forward to hearing from you soon.
