Write a letter to your team-mate. In your letter

  • say how you feel about the news
  • ask about the treatment in the hospital
  • suggest some ways of cheering him/her up

Write at least 150 words.

You do NOT need to write any addresses.

Begin your letter as follows:

Dear ............, 

Model Answer:

Dear Ahmed,

How are you now? I was shocked to hear that you fell off the stairs all of a sudden and have had an injury in your foot. I am feeling very sorry for your condition as it happened right before an important match on Sunday. I wish your quick recovery.

I heard from our coach that you are under observation by a team of doctors at Jinnah hospital. One of my relatives works there as a medical practitioner and I will request him to visit you sometime. Do not worry at all as the hospital has an exceptional reputation due to its well-trained staff and modern equipment. However, I would like to know your personal opinion about the way the hospital staff are treating you. Is there anything you want us to do for you?

I want to share some exciting news with you. You have been selected in the national football team as a lead striker. In addition to this, our university has announced a full-fee scholarship to acknowledge your efforts in sports. I wish you good health and will visit you soon.

Warm wishes,
