Band 7.5 IELTS essay sample

Dear Tom,

Firstly, I would like to thank you for the amazing arrangements you made for my trip to your hometown. I thoroughly enjoyed the whole vacation especially the home made food which was delicious.

Unfortunately, I left my wallet in the red cupboard of your living room. I realized this only after reaching home. I need the wallet at the earliest since my driving licence is in my wallet and I cannot drive my car without my driving license. As you know I drive to work.

Could you please place the item inside a polymer cover and send the package through courier to my residential address. Please check with the courier service to ensure that delivery is available in my neighbourhood. Also, please be sure to obtain the consignment tracking number to track the parcel. I will pay the courier charges.

I sincerely apologize for my carelessness.

Hope to hear from you soon.

Warm regards

    Dear Swathi,

    Hope you and your family are doing great. I’d like to thank you for inviting me as I had wonderful moments in Bangalore. I am still craving for your mother’s delicious food ‘Chicken Biryani’.

    However, upon arrival at my home. I realized that I had left my wallet in your house. The wallet is red in color and a small barbie doll sticker is on its left-hand side. While we were playing carrom board in your living room, I had used my wallet and kept it in on your dressing table. My wallet consists of all my important cards and my driving license that is highly essential for my office visit.

    Hence, I would request you to search for my wallet. Also, let me know if you could send me through a fast courier at the earliest or one of my friends is traveling to your city tomorrow. Based on your response, I will request him to visit your home and do the needful.

    I’m extremely sorry for the inconvenience it caused to you and looking forward to your swift response.
