Band 7.5 IELTS letter sample

Dear James,

I’m writing to invite you to be my guest on the biggest festival of India, Diwali, this year. Diwali is a special day for Indians. On the day of Diwali, people decorate their houses with glittering bulbs, do traditional paintings on the floor in their backyard with special colours and visit their friends and relatives to wish a prosperous new year, as according to the Indian culture, this day is the last day of the Indian calendar year.

It’s the most incredibly popular and important festival in my country, as there’s a folklore that Lord Rama returned to his palace on this day after 14 years in exile. People, therefore, have a tradition of celebrating this day with great joy and love.

I know you are a lover of art and culture. Why don’t you come this November end and enjoy the festivities with us? I am sure you’ll be blown away by witnessing the celebration!

I hope you can make it this time and be part of our celebrations.
Warm regards
