CELPIP Writing Sample Test Task 1: Writing an Email

Read the following information.

On a recent holiday, you lost a valuable item. Fortunately, you have travel insurance to cover the cost of anything lost

Write a letter to the manager of your insurance company in about 150-200 words. Your email should do the following things

  • describe the item you lost.
  • how you lost it.
  • what you would like the insurance company to do for you.

I am writing to discuss an item I have recently lost while I was on vacation with my family. I lost it when we were traveling to Mexico last week. It was an Apple Air Mac book, and it costs me around $1800 when I purchased it from an Apple store. Since it was a brand new and special edition Mac Book, I paid an additional $300 for it. I had my family pictures and essential work documents in it. However, fortunately, I had saved my data onto my apple Id before I lost it. When we were waiting for our flight from Cancun to Mexico City at the Cancun International Airport, I went to use the washroom and forgot my Mac book in the restroom. After a while, I l realized and went back to check if it was still there, but unfortunately could not find it. Since my travel insurance policy covers the cost of anything lost, I would like you to process my claim. If you could send me the required documents to fill out by this week, it would be appreciated. I look forward to hearing from you. Regards, Sam
