    IELTS GT Writing - How to write a letter of complaint

    IELTS GT Writing - How to write a letter of complaint

    Today's podcast focuses on using Reported Speech and Reporting verbs in Letters of Complaint to tell the reader what you've been told (e.g. by a shop assistant or landlord) so that you can complain about something that hasn't been done. e.g. if the landlord says 'I'll fix it!' you might need to report what he said. There are lots of rules about this: here are the 3 main ones.

    1. You said you would fix it.

    2. You promised to fix it.

    3. You promised me that you would fix it.

    I did today's podcast live on YouTube, so you can watch it there for more information.

    I'm going to go live on YouTube all through January 2020, so make sure you subscribe!

    We need to talk about your writing ✍🏽

    We need to talk about your writing ✍🏽

    I spend half my life telling students to write more formally, and half my life telling students the opposite. There is a huge gulf between the two styles, and it’s probably affecting your score and costing you money. But there are simple solutions. This podcast looks at a few of them. I hope it will help the 77% of my followers who don’t know that they have a problem. Sorry to sound harsh but I’m honestly trying to help.
