Band 8 IELTS letter sample

Dear Tom,

It was a great pleasure to spend the weekend with you. I absolutely loved the meals your wife cooked.  It was the best chicken curry I ever had in my life. Also I had a lot of fun playing the football game on your Play Station unit.

By the way, I have to confess that by mistake I took your sun glass with me back home assuming it was mine. But it was not exactly my mistake. Both models have the same color and are of the same make/brand. Actually there is no difference noticeable to the naked eye. Or maybe I was a little drunk at that time.

Anyway, I am going to London next Saturday and on the way back I will return it to you. I hope you would not need it before that and I am extremely sorry for my mistake. If you need it urgently, please do let me know so that I can send it via express delivery service.

See you next Saturday.

Best regards,
