Band 8 IELTS letter sample

Dear Ali,

I am writing to thank you for visiting our office on last Monday. We had been looking forward to this for a while. I personally enjoyed spending some quality time with you and learned a lot of things about business in general and ours in particular.

I would also like to inform you that I found a coat in my office after you left which I believe was left by one of you. As far as I can recall, no one else came into my office on that day so I assume that it belongs to one of you. It is a dark, zip up coat and it looks new.

If that is indeed yours, I can send it to your office by courier as it is faster and safer. If you have any other suggestions about how to send it, please let me know.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours Sincerely
