Band 7.5 IELTS letter sample
Hope you are doing well. It has been a while since I wrote to you but that is because I was busy with my studies. Actually now I am writing to request a favour of you.
I just graduated from university. Now I am planning to join the MBA programme at your university and I need your help in finding suitable accommodation. My classes will start in August. University agents were present at the latest education fest at our town, but the accommodation options they gave were limited.
Since one of the main objectives of overseas studies is to develop the English language skills I would like you to find accommodation options that will enable me to mingle with native English students. I don’t mind being a paying guest or sharing the room with another student. It would be great if the meals were included in the package and my monthly budget is 600$. I saw some online web portals and real estate agent ads in Columbia helping foreign students to find accommodation. You could perhaps contact them to see if they have accommodation available for me.
Many thanks in advance.
