GT Writing Task 1 Band 9 Sample

Dear Mr. Jack,

How have you been? I wish you had a good time with your family during Easter vacation. Today I am writing to express my dissatisfaction about that noise that comes my next-door neighbour.

My name is Jessica, I am your tenant at the lavender villa apartment. Over the last five years, I have been living in apartment 518 of building A, which is located at 48 5th avenue, New York, 10052.


Currently, I have been going through a serious noise problem, coming from the nearby resident. In fact, this is so disturbing that pushes me stay sleepless almost every night, which is impacting on every sphere of my life, such as, my thought process is slowing down, and I am unable to pay full attention at my daily work. Let me be more specific on the issue; the neighbour watches Korean dramas with high volume and makes a call to someone for chatting till midnight. The horrible part is that he has started to invite people for holding a party during the weekends. Overall, he is inconsiderate of others who need a good rest in their leisure with a calm and quite environment.


I would like you to talk to the neighbour about this severe issue, this is because I need him to stop making noise. I would suggest that he can turn down the volume or wear a headset to watch drama. Furthermore, he can contact the management office to arrange a party on the 1st floor near the swimming pool instead of his apartment.


I hope this matter will be resolved as soon as possible.

Best Regards,


Jessica Jones
