Band 8 IELTS letter sample

Dear Sir,

I am writing this letter to draw your attention towards a mistake in the article named “Having Fun” published in the latest edition of your magazine.

 In the article you have mentioned that city sports complex of Delhi remains open / is open throughout the year. However, it only opens for two months during summer season in the months of June and July. The complex organizes sports competitions during this time and offers different sports activities for youngsters as well as children.

I am a resident of Delhi and have been an active member of this sports complex for the last five years / since 2017. I also participate in different sports competitions organized by this complex. This is the most famous sports facility of this area and people of adjoining areas come here to enjoy the events organized here.

Your magazine is read by people / is popular among people of all walks of life and everyone believes that the information provided by your magazine is correct. Hence, it is essential to replace this incorrect message with the correct one. I suggest that you should republish this information in your upcoming edition.

I hope you will consider my request.

Yours faithfully

Neha Sharma
