You are going away to travel for the summer. A friend will be looking after your house while you are away. Write a letter to your friend. In your letter:
– say where you are going
– describe your house
– explain some of the things your friend must do to look after your house.
Band 8 letter sample
Thank you for accepting my last-minute request to take care of my home while I’m away on an official trip. As we discussed, I’m leaving for Jaipur on the 26th of August to attend a week-long conference. I will drop my house keys at your place that day in the morning.
Just in case you don’t remember, I have recently moved to a new apartment within the same building complex. The apartment no. is 1101 and Block is F. It is a penthouse with a huge balcony. There are two bedrooms with attached toilets and a well-equipped modular kitchen. I’m sure you will have a comfortable stay.
Here are a few more things to keep in mind. Before going to bed, please make sure that the balcony window is properly locked. If you forget this, a stray cat that roams around the building may enter the house and create trouble for you. Also make sure that the incoming water supply is always turned on so that there will be no water shortage.
I hope you will have a wonderful stay in my home.
Hope to catch you soon
