Band 7 Sample answers

Dear John,

I write to you to tell you how happy I am, for attending my birthday, but also for this wonderful gift that you've gifted me. A smartphone phone is too much of a gift, my dear friend, and you know that you shouldn't have bothered as much. Anyway, I thank you immensely for it and promise you that I'll be texting you more often now.

Since my old cellular phone had broken, this one came just in time and is quite handy, I must add. This mobile has a better configuration than my previous one, it's the camera has 32 megapixels whereas the one had only 5 megapixels. Another is memory also 128 Gigabytes double than the old phone. It is really helpful for me, now I can take tons of photos and videos for our next holiday.

I'm planning to invite you out for a drink, or dinner (it's up to you to choose), to chat a bit. I can't express enough my appreciation for your kindness, and warn you that I might get used to it! To your surprise, I've written this email using my the phone you gifted me!

Can't wait to meet, see you soon.

Best regards,

Jack
