Band 7 IELTS letter sample
Thank you so much for inviting me to spend a few days with you. I’m just writing to ask what things I should pack for my trip to your country, Canada, next month. I would also like to bring something for you and your son. Tell me what sorts of toys your son likes to play with. Also tell me the size of the shirt you wear. I would like to bring a nice Indian outfit for you. I am sure you will love it. Would you like a red shirt?
I also want to know about the type of clothes that I have to bring as it will be the peak winter season when I reach Canada. I would also like to know which activities I can engage in during this time. Is it possible to go for snowboarding, ice-skating or shopping in the malls? I don’t mind spending some extra dollars.
As you know, I am a foodie and love trying international cuisines. I have heard about the Canadian sweet Parfrey, which tastes delicious and I would like to try it. I would also like to try some other Canadian dishes.
I hope to receive your reply at the earliest.
See you soon!
