Band 8 IELTS letter sample

Dear Tejasvi,

I am thrilled / excited to tell you about my new house. This apartment is in Bandra. It is not only aesthetically attractive but also quite spacious. On top of that, it has a garden facing balcony along with a bright yellow coloured swing.

My new neighbours are warm hearted and fun loving. It is a win-win situation for me as the building also provides a membership pass for utilising their cool amenities such as gym, pool, games, and theatre. You must be bouncing off the walls, just like me after reading about these.

It will be my greatest pleasure, if you could come over to my new home so that we can have some coffee over a chit-chat. Let’s catch up on all the pending gossips this weekend if you are available. If not, do inform me the time and date of your awaited arrival.

Eagerly waiting for your reply.

Best Regards,
