Band 8 IELTS letter sample

Dear John,

I hope you and your family are in good health. Today, I am writing to thank you for the wonderful stay I had at your place. Your hospitality filled my heart with joy. I felt as if I was at my own house.

Unfortunately, I left my watch at your home. The watch has a round digital dial with black embossed leather straps. On the back of the watch, “Happy Birthday Seema” is engraved. It was a gift from my mother and it is very precious to me.

If I remember it correctly, I left the watch near the swimming pool. When I got out of the changing room, I removed my watch and placed it on the table near the barbeque station. If you find it, kindly keep it safely with you. I will be coming to your city for a meeting on 14th November. Then I shall pick it up from you.

Again thank you for everything and I will see you very soon.

With lots of love,
