Band 8 IELTS letter sample

Dear Sir,

I am writing to inform you about an error in an article that you published in the April edition of your magazine. An article in the Lifestyle section of your magazine has erroneously mentioned that sports centre and facilities are not available in Kuala Lumpur city centre. 

Kuala Lumpur is a modern city and it is equipped with all major facilities such as shopping malls, restaurants, banks, schools and good schools and colleges.

I know everything about this city because I was born here and lived all my life in the city. In fact, my parents, my siblings and I access the sports facilities almost every weekend. Such incorrect information may deter some tourists from visiting the place. Hence, I request you to republish the article with the correct information in your upcoming edition. If that is not possible, you should at least make an announcement through social media to alert the public about the mistakes.

Please let me know if you require any additional information and feel free to contact me through my email [email protected].

Yours sincerely,

Abdul Jaffar
