Write a letter to this friend. In your letter

  • Explain where your friend can get the key to the apartment
  • Give your friend some instructions about using your apartment
  • Recommend someplace to go

Write at least 150 words. You need not write any addresses.

Begin your letter as follows,

Dear ________ ,


Dear Sanjay

I hope this letter finds you in pink of your health. Thanks for agreeing to stay at my house for a month while I am on a trek in the Alps.

When you will reach Pune next month, you will find the apartment key with my neighbour Mr Mane who is a war veteran. The old age may have hampered his movement and do call him in advance.

Once you enter the apartment, reconnect the LPG burner as I will have it disengaged for safety. The milkman delivers milk early in the morning and the housemaid follows to cook the breakfast. I have updated both about your stay and I am sure they shall follow your specific instructions. You may use the washing machine and other electronic equipment as you please.

In case you are bored, you may visit Old Pune where you shall see the past glory of the Maratha Empire. Especially, the Kelkar Museum and the Shaniwarwada are a treat for the history lovers who, I know, you are. You may also choose to explore the nearby markets which have foods exclusive to Pune. Being a foodie, I am sure you will cherish those.

In case needed do give me a call. Thanks in advance for looking after my house.




This letter deserves about 8 bands in the actual IELTS exam. It very well establishes the tone. It also follows all the instructions. The ideas are well connected and the linking devices are used appropriately. The words are used precisely and the sentences formed are appropriately complex.
