Band 9 IELTS letter sample

Dear Tom,

I received your letter this morning. It looks like you are still facing some problems at your new school. Don’t worry. It is normal because it takes at least a couple of weeks to get adjusted to the new environment.

As for making friends, well, you have to go out and meet people. It is your responsibility to find people who share the same interests as you. Don’t wait for them to come to you. So, interact with all of your classmates. Be nice to everyone and offer help whenever you can. Remember, if you are good to other they will also be good to you.

You should also take part in extra-curricular activities. I know you are a good footballer. Why don’t you join the school football team? Also join the science, arts or literary clubs. You love reading, don’t you? Last but not least, don’t neglect your studies.  You are in high school now and grades do matter in life. Also take good care of your health.

Hope to hear from you soon.

Best wishes
