TASK 1: A LETTER OF COMPLAINT. 120-140 WORDS
Write a complaint email in 120-140 words, and at least 3 paragraphs, with details about what happened and ask for some action to be taken.

OPTION A: A COMPLAINT EMAIL ABOUT A TRIP. (CLM JUNE 2014)
Recently you used the webpage bookit.com to organize a trip to a European city. On arrival the hotel was full and you were relocated to another one miles away. There wasn't a family room so you and your children had to sleep in different rooms. Furthermore, the hotel reception and staff in general were not very helpful. To make things worse the buffet was also very limited.


OPTION B: A COMPLAINT EMAIL ABOUT A PRODUCT. (ASTURIAS 2011)
A few months ago you bought a number of items through the online shopping website printed below. Neither the items nor the service provided were what you had expected from the information on their website.
Write an e-mail to the manager of the company, explaining why you are unsatisfied with their service and products and demand whatever compensation or course of action you think appropriate.

TASK 2: AN EMAIL ABOUT RENTING YOUR FLAT (ASTURIAS JUNE 2015). 60-70 WORDS.
You have advertised your flat on a website to rent it while you are on holidays. You received the following email from somebody who is interested. Write back giving full details.
I am interested in the flat but would like to know about the area: places to visit, where to eat, kind of food, best dates to go …
As I would like to move around and make longer trips, would it be a good idea to take my bike or should I hire a car or use public transport?
