Dear Tom

I am writing this letter to convey my best wishes to you as you are leaving this company.

Warm regards,


IELTS examiner’s comments

The writer has followed almost all instructions well as well as maintained a semi-formal tone appropriate for the situation.

Most of the ideas are well-formed and connected with each other. The author uses linking words appropriately most of the time.

The grammatical structures are without many issues and convey precise meaning. However, most of the sentences have a similar style, and so the letter may become dull. 

The writer could use even more apt words. Still, the limited vocabulary is used in the best way possible without many repetitions.
