Band 8 IELTS letter sample

Dear Ramya,

As you know, I am moving next week and I am going to really miss you all. I am writing this letter to thank you all for the help you offered during my stay. I stayed for nearly 2 months in your village for my project.

When I moved in, my first concern was food because there is no restaurant in your area. But you solved that worry by serving me a variety of delicious food every day.  You did not let me miss even one meal. The way you cared for me made me feel special and at home. I am going to miss not only you but also the place where I lived.

Early morning visit to the farm and fishing in the river were a pleasant experience. I will cherish these moments for a long time.

As you know, I am going to my hometown and I would like to invite you and your family to my home. Let me know when is a convenient time for you to visit.

Once again, thank you so much for all the help.

Hoping to hear from you soon

Best regards
