Band 7.5 IELTS letter sample

Dear Sir,

I am a regular visitor of your college cafeteria and I would like to recommend some changes that would make it a better place.

Firstly, I thank you for the quality of the food and service provided. The dishes are fresh and delicious especially the fish barbecue. I appreciate the hospitality of the staffs at the vending stalls and dining.

However, I would like to point out a few things which need improvement. First of all, the menu for the lunch is costly. For example, the chilly chicken costs $10 and most other dishes cost $5. Most of the students cannot afford such rates, I believe. Secondly, there is only one billing counter and this makes it extremely busy.

As mentioned earlier, I would like to propose a few suggestions to improve the overall quality of service. First of all, prices should be reduced so that all students can afford to have meals at the cafeteria. You should also consider adding more billing counters so that we will not be late for our classes.

Your prompt action in this regard will be highly appreciated.

Yours sincerely,

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am writing to express my dissatisfaction with the lack of facilities in our college cafeteria, and would also like to make some suggestions to improve the conditions. I am a final year student of Maitry College, and I always eat my lunch at the canteen.

As far as the quality of food is concerned, I would say that the canteen offers some of the best dishes, especially choley bhatoorey. Besides, it goes without saying that our canteen uses the freshest produce from the market. This could be the main reason that most of the dishes are extremely delicious and feels so fresh.

However, I feel that there is not enough area in the food court for people to eat. Most of the times, it is quite congested, causing suffocations and anxieties for the students. While I understand that there is not enough space to extend the cafeteria, I still feel that some changes need to be made to offer a favorable experience to customers.

Taking the above into account, I would request you to install an air-conditioner during the summer so that it would not be extremely hot. Eventually, it might not cause any suffocation in the room. 

I am highly hopeful that you will take my suggestions into consideration. Please do let me know if you have any questions regarding this. 

Yours faithfully,

Shweta Yadav

Dear Sir/Madam, 

I am writing to bring your attention the issue of unhygienic conditions in the college cafeteria. 

The cafeteria is one of my favorite places in our college premises and I really like spending time there. The quality and variety of food items served are truly impeccable. Moreover, they are reasonably priced. However, lately it has been observed that the overall cafeteria establishment is not as clean as it used to be. There are several issues. For example, the cutlery used is not properly washed, the floor is dusty and the table surface and table cloth have dirty stains causing unsanitary environment in the cafeteria. 

In order to restore the earlier hygiene standards I would like to suggest a few measures. Firstly, create awareness amongst the cafeteria staff about the importance of hygiene and how it affects health negatively if not well-maintained. Secondly, establish a cleanliness protocol that must be followed. Conduct weekly or monthly in-person inspection by experts to review adherence to cleanliness guidelines and take appropriate actions. 

I hope and believe that following these measures will solve the issues and make our college cafeteria spick and span. 

Yours faithfully, 

Supriya Menon
