A Typical Request Email Question
The Request question asks you to write a formal or informal email asking someone for something. You may write to a friend, family member, co-worker, boss, or some other authority figure. Your request may be for time, company, money, or some other form of help.
For CELPIP, you need to complete your response within 27 minutes and write between 150 and 200 words.
For IELTS General, you need to complete your response within 20 minutes and write about 150 words.
A typical request email question looks like this:
