Band 8 IELTS letter sample

Dear Jack,

I am writing to share the great news that I finally purchased the villa, which I always dreamed of.  I am both happy and sad in equal measure as I have to say goodbye to you, my lovely neighbours.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your lovely wife for always being there for me. You were the first people I came to know when I moved to Dubai. You not only helped me to become familiar with the city, but also offered support while I was homesick and going through a depression.

What I will miss the most is our get-togethers in my flat and our game nights. As for the amenities in the villa, there are three pools in the new community, but nothing compared to the infinity swimming pool in our building. Also, this home was so close to my office, and it was really convenient. However, now I have to drive for forty minutes daily to reach my workplace.

I would like to invite Jane and you to my new house. I hope you are free next Thursday. I am expecting to see you there at seven, so we will have enough time to have a house tour before dinner is served.

Looking forward to hearing from you soon.
