Band 8 IELTS letter sample

Dear George,

I hope this letter finds you in good health. I am writing this letter to enquire if you would be interested in buying my cycle.

As you are aware, I recently got promoted and my responsibilities at my workplace are now more demanding and challenging and require much more of my time. Also, I have joined the gym at the office, and I try to get my regular exercise there. Therefore, I usually don’t have time to ride the bicycle.

Let me explain the features of my bicycle. It is a speed racing model, so it is light weight and fast. In addition, it is silver color with black lines. I am positive you will like it. Also, I can let you have it at a special price. Let me know if you are interested, and we will discuss the price.

I hope to hear from you soon. Convey my regards to your parents.

Best wishes
