Band 7 IELTS letter sample

Dear Sir/Madam,

My name is Yasir Shaikh and I live in the B block of the university hostel. I am writing this letter to express my disappointment with the arrangements made by the authority.

First, as we have to share the room with two other people, none of us get enough space to do our work. I really want to know if it is possible for me to move to a single room. Also, there are various other problems which distract us and affect our studies. Even though the water supply is clean, it is not provided 24 hours. Since the electric lines were repaired last week, the power supply goes out twice a day.

Being a student of a top level institute I expect the basic needs to be functional and up to date. I request you to please address this issue as soon as possible so that we can study and prepare for the exam in peace.

Yours Faithfully,

Yasir Shaikh
