    Please correct if needed. Thank you.

    The task is:
    Write a letter to your friend. In your letter,

    • tell him which team won
    • describe the conditions on the day
    • say how you felt about the match


    My letter:

    Dear John,
    I felt sorry to hear about your accident. Hope you will recover soon.
    I would like to tell you about the match you missed on weekend. First 20 minutes we were attacked by opposite team very hard. Their pressing was very intensive but we were able to handle it for 20 minutes and they scored. We were losing till 15 minutes of the second half and then we made a counter-attack and scored. This goal relieved our team then 5 minutes later we scored another one and won the match.
    Well, weather conditions were pretty crazy that day. It was sunny first 30 minutes after it became cloudy. On the beginning of the second half it was raining a little and it gradually led to showers.
    I was so happy that we could motivate ourselves and won the match. But I was injured a little at the end of the match and exhausted after the match.

    Sincerely yours,
    Josh

    Welcome to the forum.

    Who gave you this task? When are you going to submit it for marking/grading?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Dear emsr2d2 ,

    This is just example task from IELTS Test. I'm trying to practice writing but I need feedback on my text to understand my mistakes and improve.

    Thank you!
