Student: Francesca from Italy Word count: 156 Band Score: 6.5 - 7.0
The band score is between 6.5 and 7.0 because it will depend on whether the examiners think the student used a wide range of complex sentences or not.
I am writing to you as I want to organise a party at the office with all the staff members to celebrate my skilled visa approval.
As you know, I am so excited that my visa got approved after a very long wait that I would love to share this moment with all my colleagues.
I am planning to organise some refreshments after work, the party will be starting at 5:30 pm once everyone finishes their work and it will take place in the boardroom which is big enough to fit everybody.
I have organised a catering company that will bring some finger food such as sandwiches, arancini balls, and some pizzas. For drinks, they will bring some wine, champagne, and beers, and I will prepare a nice invitation card to invite all of them.
Please let me know what you think about my idea, so I can book with the company.

I hope you are doing well. The high tea last Friday was an amazing opportunity to discuss the new scope of work. Today, I am writing to you to ask if I can arrange a team get-together.
You are aware that our team works really hard to deliver excellent service all the time, so it is important to allow them to unwind after work in order to understand each other better.
I am of the opinion that we can arrange the work barbeque downstairs beside the warehouse on the 20th December at 4:00 pm. It would be lovely for everyone to finish an hour early since it will be the last day before the holidays.
There are a few things that we would have to arrange. We can organise a few types of marinated meat along with some packets of chips and dips. Also, some non-alcoholic beverages along with a case of beer and a few bottles of wine.
Lastly, it would be an incredible gesture if we could arrange a small gift as a token of appreciation.
I look forward to hearing from you.
