SAMPLE ANSWER: Word Count: 185 Student: Fernanda from Brazil Band Score: 6.5
How have you been? I’m very excited that you are coming to visit me.
I am writing to help you with extra information which normally the travel agency don’t offer to their customers, especially about Australia, because the traditional destination for Brazilians is Europe.
I have to say, the best time of the year is December, I know how much you love summer and New Years Eve parties. You should come at this time to fully enjoy this opportunity. Also, you should go to Tasmania in the first week of December, they have a regional festival in the mountains, which I’m sure you will by gobsmacked, this event is really colourful and the music is amazing.
In Sydney, you should visit Bondi Beach, there is a famous tattoo studio there, where you can make your traditional ritual to have a new tattoo on every trip, you can’t forget to enjoy the beaches around Sydney before this like Tamarama and Cronulla.
I am really excited for you to visit me at my place. Let me know if you need something.
Lots of love,

In this sample Answer, I tried to only make a few changes to turn it into a 7.0
How have you been? I’m so excited that you are coming to visit me.
The best time of the year to visit Australia is December because it is warm and I can take a month off to join you on your trip. I know how much you love nature and New Years Eve celebrations so I have a plan where we can enjoy some of outback Australia, some great local music at a festival in Tasmania and come back to Sydney in time for the great fireworks you saw on TV last year.
In Sydney, you should visit Bondi Beach, Tamarama and my favourite beach Coogee where they have an amazing Pavilion restaurant bar with Salsa dancing every night. Before you fly home we can visit a famous tattoo studio at Coogee beach where you can make your traditional ritual to have a new tattoo on every trip.
I am excited about your visit. Let me know if I’ve forgotten anything.
Lots of love,
