Band 8 IELTS letter sample

Dear Madhu,

It has been a long time since we met. I hope you are doing well. I’m happy to tell you that I started a new computer training institute in my hometown last week. It was inaugurated last week by guitarist Stephen Devassi. We offer a wide range of training programs / courses for university students as well as school graduates, which include programming courses like Java, Python and Matlab. There is also a plan to commence programs in multimedia, animation and electronic circuit design next month.

When I thought about starting a website for my business, the first name that came to my mind was obviously yours. I know that you are an expert in website development and offer freelance services for clients. I am basically looking for someone who can design a website, which has an intuitive interface. It should list sufficient information regarding all of our courses and allow people to buy them and perform online checkout. Do you think you would be able to help me?

I know that you are busy with numerous things. Of course, I will pay your fees. I believe you are coming to my hometown to attend the marriage ceremony of our common friend, Mr Manoj. We could meet there and discuss more on this.

Best Regards
