Band 8 IELTS letter sample

Dear Shanti,

How are you? Hope Ramesh and Kirti are doing great. Ever since we planned our holiday I have been eagerly looking forward to it. As it’s been two years since our families met, my keenness to see you enhanced the excitement.

Unfortunately, I have to make some changes to the plan. I have been asked to attend a work related conference on the 7th & 8th of January and hence I cannot make it on the first day of our holiday. I’m sorry about this but I am sure you will understand my predicament.

However, this should not impact our holiday plan considering that we have a four day window. You can stick to your travel plan and arrive in Chennai on the night of January 7. You can spend the 8th in a beach resort in Mamallapuram which is very near to Chennai and join us for the rest of the holiday from the night of 8th. I will make arrangement for your resort stay and cab transfers. This resort (Blue Beach Resort) is a great place to soak up the sun, the sand and the sea and your family will surely relish the experience.

Again, I’m sorry about this change of plan but I’m sure you will not only understand my position but also enjoy this alternate plan. I look forward to having a great holiday with you.
