Band 8 IELTS letter sample

Dear Clara,

Hope you are doing well. It’s been a long time since we last met. Luckily, there is an opportunity now. I am excited to invite you to my father’s sixtieth birthday party that I am going to hold on July 31st.

My parents and I’d be very happy if you could make it without fail. We’ve arranged a special pooja on that day at a hill temple in the early morning hours. You know it’s our tradition. After that, a light lunch will be served at my house followed by a grand dinner party. My plan is to give a surprise gift to my father when he cuts the cake. By the way, keep it secret!

I will book a taxi to bring you from the airport to my home. As for the accommodation, I will rent a fully furnished apartment close to my house for guests. You can stay either there or at my home.

Can’t wait to see you!

Best wishes,

    Dear Anne,

    I am fine here and hope you are also sailing in the same boat. I am penning down this letter to invite you on my brother’s marriage on August 11th and I want you will be there with me on this special occassion. We will meet after a long time that is why I am so excited.

    We will organise seperate functions on different days. Day before marriage we arrange lady sangeet where we will enjoy dance on our favourite music and on the next day, we attend a marriage in Mansa marriage palace. Day after we organise a reception party and I plan to give a surprise gift to newly married couple which is surprise for them so, keep it secret.

    I send a car on airport to receive you. We arrange my uncle’s house for our guests but you will stay with me in my room, because I want to spend my plenty of time with you.

    I am eagrly waiting to see you soon.

    Yours truly
