Band 8 IELTS letter sample

This letter is in regard to your advertisement published in the newspaper and I would like to extend my name for the same.

I have keen interest in cooking and gardening, along with general management of interior setup. I am hopeful that my skill set will help you in keeping your home and life on track after the surgery. I assure you that in my presence you will be able to give yourself complete rest.

The purpose of my sign up for the job is that it will help me in utilising my vacations in a meaningful way, in addition to providing me basic exposure to management and cooking. I am a first year student of Hotel management and wish to pursue culinary as a major subject in the programme; hence, the opportunity is perfect for me to begin implementing my classroom education in the real world but on a small scale appropriate for a beginner.

However, I will be available only during late afternoon and evening hours as in the morning, I would like to visit University for the workshop that will be organised by House of Adams for learning varios chopping techniques.

I hope to hear from you soon.

Yours sincerely

Mehak Mehta
