Dear Mr / Ms, 


Sample Answer:

 Dear Ms Kelly,

I am your next door neighbour James and writing to inform you that I have recently graduated from the Bradford Union School. To celebrate this special event, I and my family have invited a few guests to a house party on Saturday night. I am afraid this will last till the late night and the noise might disturb you. My sincere apology for that in advance.

The graduation party will begin at around 8.00 pm on Saturday and we are expecting approximately 50 guests. We have arranged for an outdoor party, mainly a barbecue party and a music gala, and the guests are mainly my friends and relatives. We have arranged an outdoor stage where a few people would talk and two of my friends would sing. My friends would be cheering up and have loud conversations during the party and I am afraid the music might disrupt your sleep.

Please accept my sincere apology in advance for the commotion from the party and the gathering. I hope you would be kind enough to endure this disturbance considering how special this event is for me.

Please do visit us someday at your convenience over the dinner so that we can have a pleasant conversation. I really enjoyed our last discussion and would love to talk to you again.   

Yours sincerely,

James Grant

Dear Mr Andrews,

Good Evening! My name is Lucas and I am your next door neighbour. I am holding a graduation party next Saturday at 8 pm as I have recently graduated from the college. I have made all preparation and going to invite around 50 guests to participate on this occasion.

This is basically a barbecue feast that will continue until midnight. Most of the guests are my friends and classmates from the college. I would appreciate if you could allow me to organize this. I assume there would be music and loud chats and I humbly apologize in advance for this.

I wanted to invite you personally to my graduation party but since you have visitors coming I wanted to apologize for this inconvenience. I would like to make up to you by inviting you for a small get together this Wednesday when my family is coming to meet me. So kindly accept my invitation and join me this week.

I am anxiously looking forward to your reply.

Regards,
Lucas Varghese Thomas
