Band 8 IELTS letter sample

Dear Mrs Stephanie,

I am writing to enquire about joining your French language classes. My name is Rajesh Kumar and I have always been keen to learn French. Actually, it was my career counselor, Vishal, who advised me to contact you.

My company has offered me a one-year rotation to Paris. I am really excited about this opportunity to experience new cultures and meet new people. Personally, these two reasons are sufficient inspiration for me to learn French.

I would appreciate it if you could offer me a crash course for a month. Basically, my requirement is to communicate with the locals there as most of them do not speak English..

I want to start classes at your earliest convenience. I am ready to start from next week in the evening anytime from 6-10 pm on weekends. Once we finalize on the starting date we can also discuss your fees. Please feel free to get in touch with me through my email Id [email protected].

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours faithfully
