IELTS informal letter sample : Your sibling has sent you a letter asking for an update on your life. Write a letter to your sibling. In your letter: – Describe what you did for your last birthday – Ask for photos of your sibling’s last holiday – Talk about something you are looking forward to

Dear Sis, Thanks for your
letter; it gave me a giggle on a boring Wednesday. As for me, I was out for my birthday
week; seven of us went to see a play at the Royal Exchange Theatre, and we stayed out late at a cocktail bar. The play was good, the drinks were many, and I had to take the next day off work with the world’s biggest hangover. I swear they get worse every year. I’ll be going to Spain for a couple of weeks next month, though, that’ll be good. That reminds me, send me those photos from your
holiday, that one to Croatia, when you went to all those music festivals - that sounded like the best time when you told me about it. I’m looking forward to going to a festival or two, myself, and I want to get a good idea of what the different ones are like. If you want to go with me next year, give me a shout ASAP. Love love love, Em
