Please check this letter
I am writing to inform you that i got an opportunity in abroad so i have to resign from my current organisation.
Although, it has been tough to take such decision but finally i had taken this to improve my professional growth as well as personnel.
I had really enjoyed working here for almost 3 years with different departments and peoples.Everyone has supported me in my problems. I had learned a lot such as personnel skills,communication skills and different business strategies.
It would be really helpful if you provide me referral letter for my future employers.

Some people enjoy change, and they look forward to new experiences.
Others like their lives to stay the same, and they do not change their usual habits. Compare these two approaches to life. Which approach do you prefer? Explain why?
Hi, Simon. Can you help me because I am confused how to write this task.
A)Should I compare these two approaches in two mains paragraphes, and explain which I prefer in the conclusion?
B)I should compare two approaches in the first main paragraphe, and explain what I prefer in the second main paragraphe?
Please, can anybody help?
Simon, if you do not free time to answer me, just write A or B. I hope that you have enough time to write one word on the computer. :)
Thank you. :)

What I am amazing about your writing is your writing letter is far beyond your writing task2. It does seem you already used to write for on organization or something else. All your letter can be applied or considered as a real sample. Great letters that I'm trying to take advantage of all those tips and phrases.

I found how to write this type of tasks which you wrote - - - > - Numbers 3 and 4 can be called discussion + opinion questions. Discuss both sides and make your opinion clear too...
But, it is not clearly explained for me. Should I write my opinion in the conclusion or in the second main paragraphe?

Not only am I <--?
Is it right sentence?
Yes. This is a inverted sentence. More examples:
Never have I seen such a performance.
Nowhere will you find the answer to this question.
Not until the child fell asleep did the mother leave the room.

Thank you very much
I understand this sentence.

@Alex: Please tell me when we can use "inverted sentence". We may use this kind of sentence to emphasize, right? Thank you.

The lack of arguments and ideas about a particular thing or topic is the main hindrance in getting good approach towards writing task..... the same problem is scaring me :-P

Hi Ali, good luck for the test.
Joah, practice would help your listening skills. I have used Cambridge 4 to 7 for listening every morning for a month, 1 hour per day, and got 7.5 last time. I was really bad at it, so I believe you can improve if you do.
