Band 8 letter sample

Dear sir/Madam:

My name is Sancia Brown and I am a native of Germany. I have completed my graduation and want to pursue my post graduation in the UK. I am writing regarding my visit to your country next month.

I am coming to attend the English and homestay programme in London. I would like to tell you that this is my very first visit to UK. Therefore I am quite nervous. It would be a great help if you could share some important information about the country. First of all I want to know about the weather there in the month of December as I heard it is quite chilly at that time. Please tell me about the clothes that I must carry with me to bear the cold. Secondly, let me know about the accessibility of public transportation from your place because I have to commute a lot during my visit.

I am arriving on the 20th of December at 10 o’clock in the morning. Would it be possible for you to receive me at the airport? I will be staying in the UK for one month.

I look forwarding to hearing from you.

Your Sincerely

Sancia Brown
