Band 7 IELTS letter sample

Dear Sir or Madam,

My name is Claudia Tucunduva Ton and I am living at Rua Alvaro Andrade 358, opposite Herrero College. I am writing to inform you that our street is in really poor conditions after the last summer. It is probably the effect of the high temperature we have and the increased traffic by the College. I have attached some pictures to show how it looks today.

This is the access road to our locality and it is used by all of us. Unfortunately, due to its bad condition, driving and even walking on this road has become quite difficult. We also have lots of apartments with families in the quarter and they have to bear with the constant noise of cars and buses. Additionally, we may have more car accidents because many drivers try to avoid the damaged area using inappropriate strategies.

I request you to repair our road immediately and build more access roads to the college to limit the traffic on our street.

Yours faithfully,

Claudia Ton
