She has had innumerous student interactions and has produced a couple of research papers on English language teaching. She soon found that non-native speakers struggled to meet the English language requirements set by foreign universities. It was when she decided to jump ship into IELTS training. From then on, she has been mentoring IELTS aspirants. She joined IELTSMaterial about a year ago, and her contributions have been exceptional. Her essay ideas and vocabulary have taken many students to a band 9.

I just received your letter yesterday evening night when i reached home. And trust me i was so happy to hear you coming to meet me on 22’nd of December on friday night.
It’s been 7 years we haven’t seen each other. I still remember the last time when we said goodbye to eachother buddy and all the fun we had on our teenage days. I would love to host you again in my home. But unfortunately on that day when you coming to meet me i need to go to my friends daughter marriage. And i really need to be there because he will be there all alone. So is ot possible if we can catchup on 23’rd of December. At that time i will be back and trust me will have a blast party together.
I hope you will understand my situation and come to see me on the date i have told you. I have also small suprise for you my friend.
Best wishes

Dear Jack,

Hope things are good at your end. I am delighted to know about your plans to visit my place on 1st December 2023. However, I regret to inform you about my unavailability during your planned date. I am extremely busy during the 1st week of December and would unfortunately miss the opportunity to host you during your scheduled visit. Please accept my apologies for the same.

You visit date clashes with my thesis submission date for my doctorate in chemistry. On 1st of December, I am supposed to present the same to the panel of professors. This will be followed by viva and evaluation in upcoming days.

It may sound inconvenient to you but I request you to postpone your plans to last week of December. By then, vacations will fall and it would be a pleasure hosting you that time. Also Christmas and New year celebrations would be cherry on the cake during your visit.
Looking forward to have a good time with you.

Your truly
Amit Sapaiya

Dear Joy,

I know your exited to come here to visit and spend time with me, but Iám terrible sorry I will not be availabe upon your arrival here in my town on Teusday, 6 in the evening. Iám afraid I cannot accompany you to stay here with me in my flat. I will be working for 12hrs shift on that day and the next morning.

However I realy love you to spend time with you since we haven’t socialize for quite some time now, for that reason are you fine to move the date on Thursday 8 in the morning, so we can have more time together if that is okay to you just let me know so I could prepare to clean my room and provide you bed to sleep for you to have comfortable sleep after your long hour of travel. I’m really can’t wait to see you.

You friend,

Dear Sophie,
How lovely it’s to hear from you! I can’t believe that you are finally coming to my town after all these years. Although it’s going to sound like a joke, unfortunately I am not going to be able to receive you during January. I am so sorry about it.
My mum and my sister are coming to visit me from overseas and they already bought the flight tickets. We have plans and bookings to spend the month in the capital that is like 500 km away from my place. Can you believe we are swimming with dolphins and flying in helicopter?
What about if you come in February? I’ll be on holidays until March so we could go to the beach everyday (I know how much you love it). Also, we could celebrate my birthday together and I’d introduce my friends to you. I am sure they’re going to love you.
Let me know what you think about it, and I’ll start organizing it.

Dear Anna,
I hope this letter finds you in good health. It was really joyful to see that you are planning to explore India and to spent quality time with me. I feel really sadden to let you know that I am on tight schedules during the month of July due to an upcoming workshop conducted by the Child’s Right Organization, for which I act as a volunteer.
The workshop runs from 5th of June until the end of the month and it mainly focuses on the mental growth developments in a child. As part of the program, I will be showcasing a presentation on the topic “Different techniques to keep kids engaged” on the last day of the event for which I need a detailed research and preparation.
I would be more than glad to welcome you anytime during August and we will have a great time together.
Eagerly looking forward to hear from you.
Best Regards,

Dear John,

I hope you and everyone at home are doing well. Last week, I received your mail and was so happy to know that you are planning to visit me in America on the 4th of next month. I am so excited to meet you in person after so long.

I am really sorry but unfortunately, I will be travelling to another city on the 4th for my business meetings. I would have postponed the meeting had it not been with a strategic investor looking forward to invest considerably in my business. I hope you would understand that this meeting is a great opportunity for expansion of my business and I cannot afford to lose it given that my business is still at a very nascent stage.

I was glad to know from your mail that you will be around in the city for three to four days. So, why don’t we catch up on 5th morning instead of the 4th ? It would be fun to spend the entire day with you after so long. I am sure you would be excited for a game of chess at night since it’s been a while we have settled scores.

I couldn’t be more excited to meet you. See you soon !

Warm Regards,
Nikhil Punjabi
