Band 8 IELTS letter sample

Dear Mr. Mathieu Couvert,

I am writing this letter to express my interest in speaking about my country on the international day event organized by our college.

My country has a very unique culture; therefore, I would like to share a lot of information related to the food, clothes, sports and our local language. Moreover, I will talk about the positive contributions to the world that people from my country have made in the last few decades.

In the last few years, my country was portrayed negatively in the western media. Most of the students at our college study international politics; therefore, I think it will be very interesting for them to know the positive aspects of my country. This information is often not available through television programs.

I will really appreciate it if I can get access to a projector because I’m planning to share a few pictures during my speech. Furthermore, a sound system will be required because I want to play a few audio recordings as well.

I hope you will accept my request. Thanking you in advance.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours faithfully,

(Full name)

    Regarding this letter it’s a formal letter,so it should be dear sir or madam instead of the name. Also they have mentioned it’s a local college, hence the writer can’t write “event organized by our college“.

    You have recently used a moving company to move your household items to a new place and they have been damaged in transfer. Write a letter to the company’s manager and say:
    When and where did it take place
    What is your complaint
    Suggest a reasonable solution

    Dear Sir,
    I recently used your company’s service for moving my household goods from Delhi to Pune on my transfer, but I am very disappointed to see the crack on my T.V.
    Last week, on 21st of July I got transferred from Delhi to Pune. I hired your company to shift my household goods and furniture to my new place of posting. Yesterday, on 25th of July, I received all my goods.
    While unpacking the goods, I realized that my 42’’ LED Sony Television’s screen was broken. I asked the movers about this and they said it might be broken on the way as the road was not good.
    I am not happy with your service and want the compensation for the same. I have already paid the insurance amount of all the goods to your company. Now as per the value of my television, you have to pay me Rs.40,000/- for the damage.
    I hope to see the positive reply from your side as soon as possible.
    Thanking you
    Yours faithfully

    You are currently talking a course at college but you will need to have a week off during this course.

    Dear madam,
    I am Hina a fourth-year student of the Special education department in your college. I am writing this letter to inform you that I need a week off because of my research work regarding my thesis. Generally in the fourth year, we have to research a specific topic. My thesis topic for this assignment checks the availability of multi-professional teams in Northern areas of Pakistan. our professor arranges a team of three students and one professor and I have to travel on 11 September and come back on 18 of September due to this reason I am incapable of stated regular classes.
    Although I have been researching my topic on the internet, therefore, it is important and effective to visit these places and continued research practically. Although I will be away from classes however regarding this issue I request to my subject teachers and friend they will email me all notes regularly.
    I will be grateful if you allow me to complete my research and grand me one week off. I hope you consider my request.
    your faithfully
