IELTS Letter to an injured friend who plays a team sports


Dear Frank,

I was so sorry to hear about your accident! I hope you’re feeling a lot better today and that it’s not too dull in the hospital.

Body Paragraph 1 on which team won

The match on Saturday was disappointing as we lost a game which we could have won easily with you on the team. 

Body Paragraph 2 about the conditions that day

I think the weather was to be blamed. It was a wet day, and the ground was very muddy. By the end of the game, you could hardly see the grass, and we were sliding around in the mud. Everyone was exhausted.

Body Paragraph 3 about how you felt the match

Until the last 10 minutes, the score was two all, probably because you weren’t there to score that extra goal! The awful thing was that at the last moment, they scored another goal. I was so shocked when I saw the ball hit the back of the net.

End Paragraph

Let me know when you’re going home, and we’ll arrange for someone to bring you to watch the next game. The rest of the team send their best wishes for your speedy recovery.

Warm regards,
