Band 7.5 IELTS letter sample

Dear Ricardo,

Hope you are doing well in life. It has been 5 years since we last met. A lot happened to me during the last five years. Actually, I resigned from my previous job and joined XXXX as a project lead. I also had to move from Florida to Boston for this job change. Things are going well at my new work place and I have traveled to many cities for business purposes.

I am planning to travel to London by the end of November for a business trip. I am still working on finalizing the dates. I will be staying in London for about 3 weeks and I will be working from Monday thru Friday. I am planning to roam around the city on weekends and travel to a couple of nearby cities. I would love to meet you and your family on one of the weekends.

Please reply with your current address and the dates that would work best for you.

Best Regards,


Manjusha Nambiar
