Band 7 IELTS letter sample

Dear Ram,

Hope you are doing well! I am writing this letter to apologize for my inability to come and watch the new blockbuster movie Pathan with you day after tomorrow. I was really excited about watching this movie but due to some unforeseen circumstances, I need to change my plan.

You already know that my grandmother is suffering from asthma. She had a severe asthma attack today in the morning. She has been hospitalized and will be under supervision for about two more days. So, I have to stay with her in the hospital

My friend Ramesh was also planning to watch this movie. He was waiting for this movie to be released after the day he watched the trailer. He asked me several times about my plans for the movie. He texted me in the morning today that he was thinking of booking the tickets for the same show we planned to watch. I have not replied to him yet but if you agree to have him as companion, I can give him all the details of the show. Our money for the tickets will not be ruined.

I think you will enjoy his company while watching the movie. He is an SRK fan like you. Moreover, he is into action movies. He has a cheerful personality so you will not get bored of his company.

Waiting to hear from you

Warm regards
