IELTS Letter 2 to Insurance Manager about an item lost recently

Introduction

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am Amol Chavan, and I am writing this letter to apprise you about an item I lost during my recent holiday in Singapore. 

Body Paragraph 1 on the item lost

During my vacation, I lost my iPad mini-tablet. It was a black model with a 7-inch display. It had a leather cover on it and weighed around 100 grams. It had cost me INR 15,000/- when I purchased it a couple of years ago.

Body Paragraph 2 on how I lost it

On the 7th of January, around 7.30 pm. I was enjoying a novel at the poolside in my hotel. I got a call from my parents in India, and I had to keep my iPad on the sitting chair to move away for better signal strength. However, I returned after 15 minutes, and I couldn’t find my tablet. I immediately reported this to the concierge, but they were unable to help. Prima facie, I suspect it was stolen, but the staff vehemently denied this possibility stating their premises are secured. 

Body Paragraph 3 about what can the manager do

As per the terms of my insurance cover, I am entitled to be reimbursed for any lost item during the vacation. I am enclosing the claim form with this letter. Please reimburse the amount to the account number stated in the form. 

End paragraph

I would appreciate a quick response as I am dependent on my iPad for all my reading during my excursions. Thanks!

Yours Sincerely,

Amol Chavan     

Review of IELTS Letter 2 to Insurance Manager about an item lost recently

  • Just like the previous letter, this letter also has a good division of paragraphs. 
  • However, a few phrases could be better used. Instead of writing, ‘during my vacation’, the author could write ‘on my vacation’.
  • Otherwise, the lexical resource utilised in the letter is apt. 
  • Also, some details make the letter monotonous. For example, the description of the stolen item in the body paragraph is too lengthy. Even the event when the writer lost the ipad is too long. When one compares these two paragraphs with the first letter, one can find the futility of writing many points.
  • The author uses almost all types of sentence structures without significant mistakes.
