Band 7 IELTS letter sample

Dear Sir/ Madam,

I am writing this letter to give my opinion on the article which is published in your newspaper.

There are two main points in the article I agree with. Firstly, many town centres have the same shape. In general, they are all square in the middle with a round outer boundary. This gives them a unique look. Secondly, all town centers have a fountain at the entrance and an equal number of parking spots.

However, there are also some town centres with unique designs. My town centre, for instance, is different from its adjacent town centres in many aspects as it does not have the same shape and organization. It has few shops and more residential places. Also, my town centre has more recreational facilities including an Amphitheatre.

I would be happy to show my town center to the writer Mr. Josh so that he can see the differences between it and other town centers. Moreover, he can alter the information written by him in the article and this helps the reader to get a clear picture of the town centres in the country.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Yours faithfully,

Bhawna Thapar
