IELTS General Writing Task 1 Practice Test 18
A foreign friend of yours plans to visit your place and stay with you, but you are not available on that date. Give your friend another alternate date for the visit. In your letter, you should:
- apologise for it
- explain what you are doing on that date
- suggest to him/her an alternate time to come
I got your message that stated your visit to my city. Let me tell you, I am more than excited and elated to receive you. However, I’d like to apologize beforehand for what I am going to say next. The date that you mentioned – 25th February, unfortunately, I am not available on this date.
I have my last exam; thus, I would have to go out of the city for the entire day. If it was not that important, I wouldn’t be asking you not to come. In fact, for months, I was waiting eagerly to meet you.
Why don’t you change the date if possible? I am free anytime after 25th February. You will be more than welcome to stay with me for as many days as you want. We are definitely going to have a fun-filled time together.
Once again, I am sorry for this inconvenience. Looking forward to meeting you soon.

This is going to come as a surprise buddy, but your India visit plans need a change.
I am feeling a bit down and want to express from bottom of my heart how sorry I am for causing you to alter your travel dates. I should have planned it out better to avoid this chaos.
I don’t like excuses, but I will not be able to make it during Feb 1st week because my manager asked me to attend a meeting the same week. I will fly on the same day you were to arrive. I am to present a seminar, about the new product our company’s launching in the upcoming month. Unfortunately, the conference is for seven days in Banglore.
Let’s plan your visit during the summer holidays in March.
. We could also plan a road trip to Kerala, striking a place from your must-visit list.
Anyways, let me know if you think otherwise about the dates. Whenever it is, I promise you we will have a wonderful time together and make some lifetime memories.
