You invited your family to have a special celebrate dinner in a well-known restaurant, but you are unsatisfied with the meal. You are writing to make a complaint. In your letter, you have to say: What the situation is; What the problem is; What you want them to do.

Dear Sir,

On October 20th, I took my family members to your restaurant to celebrate my mother’s birthday. My friend recommended your restaurant as he is your regular customer. However, my experience has not been so good.

My first complaint is that your servings are too small and not at all value-for-money. We ordered your giant burgers thinking that one would be enough for each of us. But your giant burger turned out to be just the regular size that we get elsewhere. Then, when we asked for extra sauces, your waiters told us that we would have to pay extra. They were quite discourteous also.

I think that it would be a good idea to either change the amount of food you serve or reduce the cost of the meals because at the moment I think your prices are too high for the amount of food you serve. The extra sauces also should be free with the food ordered. It would also be a good idea to teach some basic manners to your waiters.

I would like to be your regular customer for the quality of food you offer. So, if you look into the other things it would be very nice of you.

Yours faithfully,
Kiran Makkar

Write a letter to the landlord and complain about the repair work. In your letter, you should include: The details of last repair What the problem is Give suggestions to landlord on how to repair it

Dear Mr. Smith,

I am your tenant from apartment number 11102, Bissonnet Street. I am writing to complain about the repair work you did on my kitchen cupboards. Most of the work you did was satisfactory but, unfortunately there are some problems that require immediate attention from you.

As you are well aware, you had to get the kitchen cupboards repaired and re-installed. Most of the cupboards have been well installed but the one just next to the cooking range is not well fitted. There is a problem with its doors. They are not closing properly. As a result they keep opening and can cause injury.

I request you to get the work properly finished. My parents are coming to stay with me for a month and I don’t want any injury to happen to them. I therefore urge you to get this problem fixed within this week. You may call me at 9888195776 to confirm the day.

I look forward for a prompt action from you regarding this matter.

Yours sincerely,
Kiran Makkar

Talk about a child

• There are many children in my family and neighbourhood. I like all of them because I love little children.
• The child I am going to talk about here is Jasleen.
• She is my niece – my sister’s daughter.
• She is only three years old but she is very talkative.
• She is very pretty and has curly jet black hair.
• She has a very cute dimple on her right cheek and when she smiles then the dimple becomes even more prominent.
• She is the apple of everyone’s eyes
• Whenever I go to their house, she clings to me and cries a lot when I leave her.
• I have a special bonding with her.
• I give her a chocolate every time I go and if I forget she gives me a hell of a time.
• I have to go to the market immediately to buy her one.
• She is very naughty.
• She knows how to twist everyone around her little fingers.
• She likes to wear frilly frocks and when my sister buys jeans for her she refuses to wear them.
• She doesn’t like to drink milk so she keeps spilling it when no one is watching her.
• She likes to play with Barbie dolls and she has a collection of more than 10 Barbie dolls.
• My sister keeps stitching clothes for her dolls.

A news story that made you happy

I daily read the news on paper and watch news channels like Aaj Tak and Star News.
Many news stories are very interesting and I feel happy after seeing them
Here I would like to talk about the news story of America’s President Obama’s visit to India.
He came with his wife Michelle in the first week of November 2010.
Both of them made a place in the hearts of many Indians.
What made me most happy was Michelle Obama’s mingling with the children of various social backgrounds.
She even danced with the little children.
I was very happy to see how she was picking up the steps of Indian folk dances very nicely.
She seemed to be enjoying herself thoroughly.
She also did a lot of shopping from Indian stores.
President Obama met various politicians.
He came to strengthen ties between USA and India
India’s economy too is coming up very fast and it really felt good to know that superpowers like America also need to shake hands with growing economies like India.
Barack Obama also answered many questions of college students.
His way of answering was very diplomatic.
The way he was dodging questions he did not want to answer was very hilarious.
Finally I would like to say that his visit was a win-win situation for both India and USA.
Deals worth 10 billion dollars were signed in those three days.
