Band 7 IELTS letter sample

Dear Mrs. Barrett,

My name is Tina and I recently saw your advert in the weekly newspaper. I would like to be considered for the part time job which you published. I am a student studying hotel management at Delhi University.

I think I am the best candidate for your requirement because as a hotel management student, I have a knack for cooking. I am an expert on Indian and Italian cuisine. Also, I am a stickler for perfection and keep things tidy and clean so I will be helpful in the kitchen and make your home tidier and more attractive.

What’s more, I have a green thumb so you can rest assured that I will take good care of your garden. Actually, I have been learning English and Spanish, and you are a native speaker of both languages, so it would be really helpful to me to become fluent and develop soft skills. Also, I really like to help people and it gives me a sense of satisfaction. Undoubtedly, small earnings help me keep going during summer breaks.

My summer vacation begins on May 1st and I will be able to start working for you immediately after. I can work in the afternoon between 2pm and 5pm on every day except Sunday.

I am looking forward to hearing from you.

Thanking you,

Yours sincerely,

Tina Arora
