Band 8.5 IELTS letter sample

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am writing this letter to express my desire to volunteer as an English teacher in any one of the developing countries. I hod Masters degree in English language and I have been working as a senior English teacher at a public school for eight years.

As you know, the summer vacations are drawing closer and I am planning to spend those two months in a developing nation teaching English to poor and destitute children. I have always wanted to volunteer but never got an opportunity.

After seeing your advertisement I searched online about your programmes and I have decided that I want to volunteer in an African country. Let me know if you have any openings there. If that is not possible, you can send me to any other country. I am available from the start of May until the end of June.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours Sincerely,


Manjusha Nambiar
