General Training Writing Task 1 Sample 79 - You have just moved into a new home and are planning to hold a party

IELTS Letter Writing / GT Writing Task 1:

You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.

You have just moved into a new home and are planning to hold a party. You are worried that noise may disturb your neighbour.

Write a letter to your neighbour. In your letter

  • introduce yourself
  • describe your plans for the party
  • invite your neighbour to come

You should write at least 150 words.

You do NOT need to write any address.


Sample Answer 1:

Dear Mr. Simpson,

I am your next door neighbour. As you may have already noticed, we have recently settled in this flat. Therefore, I have not the opportunity to be acquainted with you yet. In fact, we are a family of three: me, my wife and our 8 years old child.

The following Sunday is going to be my son’s birthday; hence, my spouse and I have decided to celebrate with family and friends on that special night in our apartment. The party will commence on 7:00 pm and terminate around midnight. It will consist of some music and dancing indoors in which a small music band will also be attending; however, dinner will be served about 10:00 o’clock in the garden. Although the participants are comparatively limited, we are afraid to bother you by late night noises.

On the other hand, I had initially intended to invite you and your family to our ceremony by phone, but I hesitated whether it could be a good idea or not. After consulting with my wife, she suggested it would be more appropriate if I write a letter to do so.

We will be deeply pleased in case you kindly accept my invitation to our beloved one’s celebration. In this way, not only find we the chance to become familiar with you, but the gathering might also perturb you less.

Best Regards,
Ali Kazemian

Sample Answer 2:

Dear Ms. Meena,

I am Priya and I have recently moved to the house with my family which is opposite to yours. This letter is regarding the party which I have planned to throw on the 10th of June and to invite you to be present at that party.

Since this is the first time our family is moving to a house that we own, we have planned to throw a party for friends, colleges, relatives and neighbours. We have arranged a party to celebrate our happiness, and want to share this special moment with the people we care and love.  I have also planned to arrange a music band which would make the event more enjoyable. I hope you do not hate music! I would feel delighted if you could also appear to this and make it a very special party.

Sorry for any inconvenience it would likely to cause you, but I assure you that I have already made arrangements to make it quite less noisy; by a plan to conduct games for children and keep them engaged and placing a soundproof coverage at the entrance of my house.

Hope you will accept my invitation and enjoy the party!

With Best Wishes,


[  Written by - Priya

Dear Mr & Mrs Smith,

I am writing you to introduce myself with lots of joy from the deep of my heart. I am Shadia, your new neighbour, shifted to your next door apartment last week with my daughter.

As a new member of this apartment, I am planning to arrange a get-together party with some of my friends and relatives next Sunday.

I am afraid I would need some preparation for the party and unexpected noise may reach your apartment while decorating my apartment. My sincere apology in advance for that and I assure you I will take every precaution not to make it too annoying.

I am planning to have a dinner party and indoor game for the entertainment of our kids. Therefore, I invite you and your children to this party with great hope of your presence. It will be a great fun for sure as my friends and relatives are very open-minded as well as sociable.
I would like to request you to join us to make this party more enjoyable and pleasant.

Hope to see you soon.
Wishing you a very nice day.
Thank you.

Your sincerely
Shadia Rahman.
