IELTS Letter, topic: a migrant writes a letter to a friend

You migrated to another country. Write a letter to your friend to describe your present life and tell him/her why you chose this country.

Dear Linda,

I’m sorry I haven’t been writing to you for such a long time. I am that I have migrated to Perth, Australia. My family and I arrived in Perth on the and we have finally settled down.

We migrated to Perth because my sisters and their families have also migrated there three years ago. We have planed to join them in Perth and also did this for the children’s education and their future as well.

We have just settled in our new house and the kids are enjoying the pool almost every day. They have been attending a public school and have made quite a lot of friends. The people here are very friendly and helpful. John has also found a job near the city. The working environment here according to John is very different from Malaysia. As for me, I am a full time housewife, enjoying the morning coffee with the newspaper.

Do let me know when you plan to visit Perth and you are always welcome to stay at my new house.

With love,
Sharon.
