Band 8 IELTS letter sample

Dear John,

I don’t think I can join you for the movie next weekend. I am really sorry about this. I really wanted to come because it has been a long time since we met.

Actually my son told me today that his school has organized a meeting for the parents of students and I really have to attend this meeting to understand his academic performance.

I know that you have already booked the tickets for the movie; therefore, I asked my younger brother and he confirmed that he could join you for the movie. My brother owns a car so he will be able to pick you up from your home.

Also, the last time we spoke, you had told me about starting an online business. My brother is an expert at it. He already owns some successful online ventures and I guess this will be a nice opportunity for you to learn the ropes from him. He is a friendly guy and I am sure you will have a nice time with him. Do let me know if he can join you for the movie.

Once again I’m really sorry for my unavailability.

Warm regards

    Dear John,
    I want to inform you that unfortunately, I willn’t be able to make it for the movie next Sunday. I know that you were looking forward very much to watch this movie along with me but something had come up. My sister in Dubai is visiting us on Saturday and she is insisting accompanying her to attend her friend’s marriage on Sunday.
    As the ticket is already booked and is not refundable, it would be wise to give my ticket to my friend Daniel who is a cinema lover. He is also my colleague and we stay together.
    I am sure you will enjoy his company as he socialize fast and well. Also, he likes to remain silent while watching the film the same as you.
    Once again my apologies and I promise that we will go to the cinema together next month.

    Your loving friend,

    Dear Ankush,
    I very regret to inform you that I would not be able to come with you to see a movie this weekend as I have to go to Jaipur to attend a business seminar. I know you would be very upset with all of the sudden change in the plan but I cannot do anything as my boss specifically instructed me to attend this seminar as it is very important for my business.
    However, I have asked my school friend Mithun to join you this weekend to watch a movie with you. Actually, Mithun recently moved to Delhi from his home town Shimla and he has no friends in Delhi apart from me. Moreover, he has no plan on this weekend, therefore, he can go with you to watch the movie together.
    I have already told you so many things about Mithun and he is an extrovert and fun-loving person and you will like his company. This would help you to get acquainted with each other.
    I hope you understand my situation.
