Band 7 IELTS letter sample

Hey John,

How are you doing? Have you started packing for the trip? I can’t believe next month this time you’ll be here in my town. I am so excited! Anyway, I thought I would drop a line about the questions you asked in your last mail.

Well, as you’re a solo traveller, you can stay at the Glam Hostel. I’ve heard that their rooms are wonderful, and they offer economical packages for long stay. Also, there is another 4 star motel just 15 minutes’ walk from the beach. Their ocean-facing rooms are worth dying for.

As you are coming next month, it will be peak summers. So, I suggest that you pack loose cotton clothes and carry a big bottle of sunscreen with you.
Also, bring your sports shoes for trekking and flip flops for the beach.

You’re visiting my city at a wonderful time, as next month there is a summer carnival on the main street, which is a must watch. Also, do you like surfing? There are free classes hosted by Surf Club on the beach, and you won’t regret attending them.

Anyway, let me know if you need more details. I can’t wait to see you.

Warm regards
