Band 8 IELTS letter sample

Dear Aman,

Hope you are hale and hearty. I was delighted / excited to hear the news of your visit to my place until I saw the dates of your stay. Sadly, I won’t be able to host you as I am going to Mumbai for one month holiday. Don’t worry. I have told my friend Kamala to pick you from the airport. He resides in my neighbourhood and will also hand over you the keys of my flat.

The main door has two keys which need to be inserted together at a time in order to unlock it. My room is on the left of entrance where you may rest; however, you might face trouble with its air conditioner as it is a bit noisy when temperature is changed. So, keep it constant at 23 degrees.

There are some exotic destinations to visit in Kashmir such as Nehru Garden which is known for its amazing variety of flowers. You can also visit Dal lake in the evening. It looks resplendent under the moonlit sky.

Do inform me about the time of your arrival.

Best wishes,

    Dear Sam,
    I got excited when I received the news that you are coming to stay with me. Unfortunately, I have already made a plan with my colleagues to Shimla to spend whole summer vacations and everything like air ticket and hotel is booked so that it is impossible for me to cancel the plan in the last minute.
    Don’t worry, you can stay at my flat as long as you want to. While leaving, I will give a spare key of the apartment in the security room of my building. Please collect it from there. As you enter the main door, please turn on the main switch in the left hand that will power on the electricity supply. There is a washing machine in the laundry room which has a user manual on the instrumental panel and read it carefully before a wash. In addition to this, the password for my personal computer is “sarv234”. Turn on the modem which is underneath the computer table in order to use the internet.
    I recommend you to visit the city park which is at walking distance from building at least once. I bet you will really love this.
    If you have any queries, please write me back.
    Best Regards
    Sarbjeet Singh
