IELTS 3 test A task 1

Dear Mr Arnold,

I am very much looking forward to starting working with you and the team at Toys R Us.

However, it is with great regret that I write to inform you that I won’t be able to start as planned on Monday next week due to extenuating circumstances.

I have had a terrible accident while playing hockey yesterday. One of my teammates took a backswing with his hockey stick while I was standing too close behind and struck me in the face – across the bridge of my nose and top teeth. It broke my nose, chipped one my top front teeth and gave me a black eye.

I am booked in to have corrective nose surgery on Monday, followed by a dentist’s appointment on Tuesday to restore the tooth with a filling.

The earliest I will be available to start would be Wednesday next week assuming you don’t mind me coming to work with a black eye and possible a nose guard to protect the bone while it heals.

I am truly sorry for any inconvenience this may cause you or the team.

Please feel free to contact me for any reason on 9123 8765.

Sincerely,

Tim Brown
