Band 7 IELTS letter sample

Dear Mr Clay,

I am writing to express my gratitude to you for providing me immediate care after my accident. My name is Aditya Jaitley and I had an accident on Monday. I was hit by a car while crossing the road to reach the bus stop and you were the person who rushed me to hospital. I realized this only later because I was unconscious at that time. Without your help I wouldn’t have been able to survive as I had lost a lot of blood. If you hadn’t taken me to hospital, I would have lain there bleeding for quite some time. I will be indebted to you for this kind act for the rest of my life.

As a token of gratitude, I would like to invite you and your family to my home. My parents are also quite keen to have you over for dinner. It would be great if you could pay us a visit on Sunday for a barbeque. If that does not appeal to you, we can have dinner at a restaurant of your choice. If Sunday is not possible, please suggest any other day convenient to you.

Thank you once again for saving my life.

I hope you will accept my invite.

Best regards

Aditya Jaitley
