Band 7 IELTS letter sample

Dear Mannat

How are you? I hope this letter finds you in high spirits. I am glad to hard that you have finally registered yourself for a summer holiday camp. I am sure this is going to be the best camping trip of your life although there are a few disadvantages as well.

As you are aware the camps will be organised near River Ganga in Rishikesh. It will be the ultimate opportunity to explore the bio diversity of the region. Also, a wildlife lover like you can hone your bird watching skills on the trip. You will be away from the bustle-bustle of the city so, simply spend the time relaxing in the lap of Mother Nature. It will refresh you both mentally and physically. 

However, if you are ill-prepared the trip may pose some disadvantages. Firstly, there will be lots of poisonous snakes so wear properly covered clothes. In addition, the trek to the camp site is about 10 km; hence, start regular walking and carry sports shoes to ensure pain-free walking / climbing.

I would like to accompany you on the camping adventure but I am stuck with my course work this year. I am yet to compensate for the community service hours that I missed due to sickness so, I will be working for the whole summer break.

Best of luck for the trip and share your experience as soon as possible.

Yours Sincerely
