Band 7.5 IELTS letter sample
Hope you and your family are doing good. I heard that you returned to your hometown, Rajamundry, last month and I just realised that the Physics book which I borrowed from you last semester is still with me. I’m so sorry that I was unable to return it to you on the agreed date.
I remember you telling me how important this book is to crack an entrance exam related to computer science. You said that this subject is the toughest and need at least one month’s preparation to achieve the minimum score. I hope your test preparation has not been affected.
I’ll be very happy to send it through speed courier if you need it urgently; otherwise, I’ll send it with our friend Rohit who will be visiting your city next month. Let me know your decision at the earliest so that I can send it accordingly.
I’ll be waiting for your reply.
