Dear Linda,

I’m sorry I haven’t been writing to you for such a long time. I am {tooltip}writing to inform you{end-link}Use less formal language (writing to let you know){end-tooltip} that I have migrated to Perth, Australia. My family and I arrived in Perth on the {tooltip}03/04{end-link}Use words, not figures (the third of April){end-tooltip} 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,

This is a good letter. It has the correct structure, the task is covered, the sentences are nicely built and it leaves a good impression because of the fluency of the language. See comments underlined in blue for minor corrections. Overall, this looks like a band 7 letter.
