Write a letter to your cousin's friend. In your letter

  • introduce yourself
  • say why you are making this trip

Write at least 150 words.

You do NOT need to write any addresses.

Begin your letter as follows:

Dear ............,


Model Answer:

Dear Ethan,

Hope you are doing great. I am Pollard Jeremy, a maternal cousin of Gill from Canada and have heard a lot about you from him. I am writing to say hello and get some information about Melbourne, where I will visit next month with my wife and daughter.

Gill must have informed you that I might write to you and I truly appreciate your time as I know you are terribly busy. However, when I mentioned my trip to Gill, he enthusiastically recommended you. You might remember me from the wedding ceremony of Gill last year when he introduced you to me.

I am planning to spend some quality time in Melbourne where I solely intend to spend the summer holidays with my family. I have done some online search and learned a few things about Melbourne but this is my first trip to Australia and I thought you would be the best person to recommend me some hotels, tourists spots, child-friendly amusement parks and dining places. I intend to stay for around one month and would like to be on my budget. Are there any tips for daily commuting? What type of dresses should we bring to Melbourne during this time?
I know none there and your tips would be a great help to me.

No more today. Stay fine and write me back at your convenience.

Warm wishes,

Pollard

Letter Answer:

Dear Annie,

Hope you are doing well. I am Sita, a close friend and relative of Isabella, from Turkey. I assume she has already called you and you have heard my name from her.

I am Isabella's second maternal cousin, residing in Brooklands Wille area. I am doing my Masters degree in Social Work. I have planned to visit your city during my winter vacation, possibly in mid-November, and do some works for my charity project and I thought you would be the best help I can manage in a city unknown to me.

I haven't been to Italy, though I have always wanted to. I have booked my hotel and would love to meet you in the first week of my arrival to take your suggestion about the best places to be and things to do. I wish you would join me. This would be fun. I would love to learn Italian way of living firsthand and wishing you would guide me.

Also, I am longing to taste some Italian delicacies as they are my favourite. I heard the temperature would be quite low at that time. Any suggestion for me to pick appropriate dresses?

Awaiting your reply as soon as possible.

All the best
Sita
