General writing task 1 model answers
Official model answers
(Cambridge IELTS books 1-10 have model answers at the back of the book. Books 11-14 don’t have any model answers).
Unofficial model answers
- IELTS Buddy
- IELTS Focus
- IELTS Advantage (Formal letter. Scroll down)
- IELTS Advantage (Informal letter. Scroll down.)
- IELTS Answers
- IELTS Liz (Scroll down to ‘IELTS General Training Letter’)
I’ve checked the model answers on all of these websites. Although they’re not officially approved by IELTS, they do seem to be reliable (the answers contain no obvious grammar errors and do what’s required in terms of Task Achievement).
