Sample Answer 1:

Dear Mr and Mrs Simpson,

I am your next-door neighbour and we have recently moved into this house. I regret that I did not get the opportunity to be acquainted with you. In fact, we are a family of three - me, my wife and our 8 years old son. We are planning to hold a party next Monday and would like to invite you.

My son’s birthday will be on next Monday. Hence, my spouse and I have decided to celebrate this special occasion and invite some friends and relatives. The party will commence at 7:00 pm and continue till midnight. It will consist of some music and dancing in which a local music band will perform. The dinner will be served at around 08:00 pm in the garden and the concert will be held afterwards. Although the participants are comparatively limited, we are afraid the noises from the music performance might disturb you. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience created by this.

I initially intended to invite you and your family to the party over the phone, but I hesitated whether it could be a good idea or not. My wife suggested that it would be more appropriate if I write a letter to do so.

We will be genuinely pleased if you kindly accept our invitation to our beloved son's birthday ceremony. This way, we will not only find the chance to become familiar but enjoy the occasion together.

Best Regards,

Ali Kazemian

Sample Answer 2:

Dear Ms Meena,

I am Priya and I have recently moved with my family into the house next to yours. I am a doctor and I live with my daughter, and husband, who is a lawyer. I have planned to throw a party and invite some guests on the 10th of June and I would really appreciate your presence at that party.

Since this is the first time our family is moving into a house that we own, we have planned to throw a party and invite some friends, colleagues, relatives and neighbours. We have arranged a dinner party and want to share this special moment with the people we care about and love. I have also planned to arrange a music show which would make the event more enjoyable. I hope you would not mind the concert! I would feel very delighted if you could join the party.

My apology for any inconvenience it might cause to you, but I assure you that I have already made arrangements to make it less noisy by a plan to conduct games for children and keep them engaged. We will also place soundproof coverage at the entrance of my house.

Hope you will accept my invitation and join the party.

Yours sincerely,

Priya Roy

Dear Mr. Martin,

I hope you receive this letter in good health and spirit. I am Samia, your next-door tenant. We have moved to your neighbourhood last week. I regret that I did not get the opportunity to be acquainted with you. Yesterday, we received the good news of our daughter's graduation. And to celebrate this event, my family is planning to throw a party on the coming Saturday.

In this regard, I wanted to bring this to your knowledge that the party may cause some commotion and the music uproar may be abominable for your family. My younger son loves rock music and he has invited over his cousins to play for my daughter to make the day splendid and unforgettable. The party will commence at 8:00 pm and last till midnight. Considering this situation, I want to apologize in advance because the party boom may be annoying for a couple of hours.

However, we would like to invite you to this auspicious event in honour of my daughter. Kindly, come over and add glory to the celebration. I consider it a good chance to become familiar and enjoy the occasion together. We will be genuinely pleased if you accept this invitation and join us this Saturday night.

Yours sincerely,

Samia Shah
