Band 8 IELTS letter sample

Dear John,

Im writing this letter to congratulate you on your engagement. Two days ago I met your mother in the supermarket of our neighbourhood and she told me that you got engaged last week. She also told me that she had visited my house to hand in the invite but I was not there.

I’m really glad to know that you have got engaged to the love of your life. I remember a few weeks ago you had told me that you were planning to ask for her hand in marriage. It is really  good news that she accepted your proposal.

I always wanted to be part of your big day and I’m really sorry that I could not attend the event. I propose that we plan a meet up to celebrate your engagement. If you are available next week, I would like to invite you for the dinner at the Thai restaurant of our neigbourhood.

I am looking forward to receiving your confirmation so that I can reserve a table at the restaurant.

Hope to see you soon,

(First name)

    Dear Sam,

    Hope you are doing well. I couldn’t hold my nerve when I got to know that you proposed to Jane and she said yes. I am extremely happy for both of you.

    I must say, that you tried your best to keep it a secret, but Facebook revealed the news. I got a notification when Jane had put up a picture of your engagement on her wall. Needless to say, both of you are looking amazing together.

    Now that your little secret is out, all the groupmates deserve a treat from you. As planned earlier, we are going to meet next month for our reunion. This time, I will take the responsibility of finalizing the venue, and you will cover the bill. I am sure people will be delighted to hear the news.

    Do let me know if you want me to make any special arrangements.

    Can’t wait to meet you.
    Nikhil
