You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.

Write a letter to your friend. In your letter
- Explain the important event
- Apologise for the situation
- Suggest a new arrangement
You should write at least 150 words.
You do NOT need to write your own address.
Begin your letter as follows:
Hope you are doing fine. I have been very eagerly waiting to meet you and spend some pleasant time in England. However, my younger sister has given birth to a baby boy and would be staying at our home for around 3 weeks. I am afraid I will have to reschedule my visit to England in early June instead of early May.
I have almost finished my preparation to visit you and applied for the visa. If things go as expected, I will get the visa in a week. Despite my anticipation to meet you on 3rd March in England, my current situation forces me to delay the tour for a month. My sister has had her first baby last Monday and she is staying with us. We are so happy to have a new angel in our family and my presence is quite important for the baby and the mother. I am the only male member of the family and cannot desert my family while I travel to England.
I am so sorry that I cannot visit you as programmed and it must be hard for you to reschedule everything. I wish I have had an alternative!
Wishing to meet you on 4th June if everything goes smoothly.
Take care and have excellent time ahead.
