SAMPLE ANSWER

Dear Pooja,

I hope you are in your best of health. Happiness was all over my face when your letter came last week where you mentioned about your prospective visit to Delhi. I already had made few plans for us together but recently I was informed of a 15 days corporate training program organized by my employer. Sadly enough, the dates clash with your visiting dates.

But, my house is open for you. I live in the same place as earlier and although I won’t be there, my friend can host you.  You can stay in my room and feel free to use the kitchen, bathroom, and other amenities. My friend has agreed to go shopping with you on Saturday and there will be no issues with the food.

It has been a long time since we met and it would have been amazing if things turned out our way. But, I would be coming to Bombay next month. Hope to meet you soon.

Yours lovingly,
Anuradha

Sample Answer

Dear Megha,

I got the wonderful news of your baby girl’s birth. So, our lovely princess is finally with us. I saw her pictures on Instagram. She is really adorable.

I extend my heartiest congratulations to you, your husband and the entire family. I’m sure that her arrival will bring a lot of happiness and fortune in the family. I just can’t wait to see her. I have already bought a gift for her. I checked out several items and then finally selected a carrycot as I found it quite useful for the little one. You can carry the baby in it while going out or even at home to soothe her with the toys hanging in the cot.

Finally, I’m planning to visit you next Friday, the 5th of October, at around 4 pm. So, please let me know if it is convenient to you. In case, you have any other plan for Friday, I can come later as well.

Yours lovingly,
Sakshi

Sample Answer

Dear Gagan,

I believe you receive this letter in pink health and high spirit. I’m writing to invite you for a reunion party on next Sunday, 12th May, at Den’s Cafeteria in Defence Colony, Dehradun.
It’s been 6 years since we completed our graduation. Sadly, most of us haven’t met each-other for a long time. Everyone got busy with their careers and personal life after college, making it difficult to stay in touch with fellow students.
It’s quite understandable. Life is very demanding these days. Having a fine balance between work and personal life is almost impossible. I’ve been working as an assistant professor in Graphic Era University, Dehradun for the past 3 years. Final exams are just over and I thought of using this opportunity to organize a small reunion party for all our batchmates.
I have made all the arrangements which include a few games, followed by dance and dinner. We shall reach the venue by 6 pm and then enjoy together till late. I hope this time is convenient to you.
See you on the 12th of May!

Yours lovingly
Vishal

IELTS INFORMAL LETTER #APOLOGIZING TO A FRIEND

IELTS INFORMAL LETTER #APOLOGIZING TO A FRIEND

You were supposed to receive a friend at the airport. But, for some reasons you are unable to do so. Write a letter to your friend. In your letter
– explain why you can’t come,
– guide them regarding other options to get to your home,
– describe the plans/visits you made to show them around when your friend arrives.

Sample Answer

Dear Sushmita,

I believe your preparations to come to India are in full swing. I am eagerly waiting to see you on Thursday evening. As discussed earlier, I had promised to collect you from the airport but unfortunately I would not be able to keep my words due to an unplanned official meeting.

Just yesterday my boss informed me about an urgent meeting of foreign delegates that will take place on the coming Thursday, the day of your arrival. I have been asked to give a presentation too. In this case, it won’t possible for me to reach the airport as we had planned earlier. Don’t worry. The airport has an excellent taxi service. My suggestion for you would be to take a cab from the airport to reach my home. You can book a cab online or hire one from outside the airport.

I just can’t wait to see you and I have planned many things for your stay. I have reserved seats for a get-together with our college friends in the ‘Memories Café on Friday evening. On Saturday, we would go shopping and enjoy the street food of Delhi. We will plan the rest of days as per your preferences.

I Look forward to seeing you soon! (207 Words)

Yours lovingly,
Kritika
