Band 8 letter sample

Dear Stephanie,

I am happy to have found time to write to you after such a long time. I hope you and your family are doing great.

Last month I moved into a new house. Our previous house was a long way from my workplace, and everyday commute was killing me. Since I’m living with my folks, they expect me to spend some time with them every day. Now that I have moved to this new house, which is closer to my office, I am able to find more time for them.

Anyway, the good thing is that new house is much bigger than the previous one. It has a beautiful garden, and I can view the see from the balcony.  I love it here. We now have two spare rooms so I have converted one into a guest room, and the other one into a study.

I would like to invite you to visit us. Christmas is around the corner. See if you can plan a holiday. Mom would love to see you too.

Lots of love,
