IELTS Informal Letter Example 10
A foreign friend of yours plans to visit your place and stay with you, but you do not have
time on that date. Give your friend another alternate date to come.
In your letter, you should:
- apologize for it
- explain why you will busy on that date
- suggest to him/her an alternate time to come.
Hope you’re doing well. I know you would have made great preparations to come and stay with
me on August 20, 2020, but I regret to inform you that I will not be available on that date. I do
understand that we made plans for this, six months ago and I’m deeply sorry for spoiling it.
I think you know of my neighbour who is an older woman in her eighties. She was living alone.
Her daughter was in France. One night, she had developed convulsions and did not wake up the next day. She used to give me flowers from her garden daily. Since she did not bring flowers on the next day, I suspected something went wrong, and I was right. She lay unconscious on her floor. I informed the Police, opened the door and took her to the hospital where she was treated. Then, I told her daughter. She requested me to bring the older woman to France precisely on the same day that you planned to arrive. But I’m planning to come back immediately after entrusting the old lady into her daughter’s hands. So, I will be available from August 25, 2020. Please let me know if you can make arrangements on the new date.
