Band 7 IELTS letter sample

Hi Ahmed,

I’m writing this letter to congratulate you for your new home. I was planning to visit your house next weekend but I won’t be able to come because I will be traveling to Oman for work.

However, I’ve sent a camel decoration piece made of green marble for the television lounge. I think it will match with the room color scheme and look good on the middle table.

This is the same piece which we saw during our last year trip in Istanbul. I remember that you liked it very much but didn’t buy due to its heavy weight. A couple of weeks ago, I requested them to deliver it at my office address and thankfully they agreed with some extra charges.

I have received it at my workplace and also arranged a driver to drop it at your home on this weekend. As it is a very delicate thing, I don’t want to take the risk of sending it through courier. Furthermore, let me know if you have any plan to travel during the weekend.

Hopefully, you will like this small addition to your house.

Best wishes,
