Band 8 IELTS letter sample
Dear (first name),
I hope you doing well, I’m writing this letter to congratulate you on your engagement with Jason.
Two days ago, I saw a picture of your engagement on Jason’s profile. I must say you both were looking amazing in those beautiful traditional attires. I would have been happier if you had told me yourself since we have been friends for a long time.
I was over the moon to hear about this and I still remember our college days when you and Jason started dating each other. I always said you both make a very cute couple and I’m very happy that you’re hitched to the love of your life.
We should plan a meet up to celebrate your engagement and we’ve not met for a long time. I’ll invite Jason and some of our common college friends as well and we can go for dinner at our favorite restaurant the Reef. Please let me know if you are available next weekend.
See you soon,
