Band 8 IELTS essay sample
My name is Amanpreet and I am a student from India. Thank you so much for allowing me to stay with your family while I complete my English and Homestay program in the England. My program starts in the second week of April and I will be in England for a few months.
I am writing this letter because I have a few queries. First of all, I would like to know about the current climate in the UK so that I can carry appropriate clothing. Is it still cold now or has summer started? I would also like to know about the transport facilities available to me. Is it convenient to take public transport near the house or should I take a rental car for this purpose?
I am leaving India now on the night of 2nd April. I should be able to reach your place by 9 pm on the 3rd. I have booked a taxi in advance to travel from airport to home.
I look forward to meeting you all in person.
