Band 7.5 IELTS letter sample

Dear Chris and Steffi,

I just received the photographs of our last vacation which I had spent with you in your home country France. It is one of my favourite countries and I have always dreamed of travelling to this beautiful place.

I would like to thank you for organizing such a wonderful trip and allowing me to stay at your home, and sending me the beautiful photographs. All the photos are amazing, and we all look absolutely stunning in those photos.

I am sorry I could not write to you earlier as after coming from holidays, I was swamped with my work-related emails which I needed to respond to and finish pending tasks.

There are a few bank holidays next month and I will definitely have enough time for myself. I would like you to come over to my home and stay with me. It would be a lovely get together and we all will have a great fun.

I hope to hear from you soon.

Best wishes
