    Crisis

    The first sentence of your email should not be a demonstration of your English skills (or lack of them). Instead, get to the point! Try:

    I won't be able to start my new job as scheduled because I was in a car accident, and I am in the hospital with two broken legs.

    Re: Task 1 IELTS writing

    I really appreciate your time and correction.
    below is the revised letter: *Please also let me know if it is possible to get bond 8 in IELTS writing task 1 with this letter or it is too far from it?*

    Dear Mr. Tom,

    I am writing this letter to inform you that I will not be able to start my new job as scheduled because I was in a car accident, and I am in the hospital with two broken legs.

    For your kind information, unfortunately, I had a terrible accident three days ago. I was admitted to hospital immediately after collision. I was unconscious until today morning. As soon as became awake started to write to inform you about the problem.

    Sadly, my legs both are broken very badly. They were broken in four places. In addition, my head hit the steering wheel and the windshield. Surgeon did four operation on both legs and head so far.

    I am extremely sorry for the situation. Based on the doctor's statements, I will not be able to walk or work in next four months. I this regard, I would like to make a request to postpone the commence day for four months.

    Your kind consideration would be highly appreciated.

    Your sincerely,

    Re: Task 1 IELTS writing

    Note that we don't address people as "Mr" and then their first name. You can use "Dear Tom" (although it's very informal) or "Dear Mr + surname".

    Please note that your last two posts have been deleted. Don't write a new post to say "Thank you". You already clicked on the "Thank" button. That's enough.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
