Letter Writing # 190 - You would like a friend to accompany you on a holiday

IELTS Letter Writing / GT Writing Task 1:

You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.

You are planning a holiday in another country and would like a friend to accompany you.

Write a letter to the friend asking him/her to join you and explain:

      - Why are you taking a holiday?
      - What is your holiday plan?
      - Why would you like him/her to go with you?

You should write at least 150 words.

You do NOT need to write any address.

Begin your letter as follows:

Dear ......


Sample Answer:

Dear Flemming,

I would like to thank you for hosting an incredible party last month when I got the chance to meet your parents, who are, in my opinion, are exceptional individuals. I would love to meet them again. However, I am writing today to insist you to visit Denmark with me.

I had long been planning to visit Denmark, a remarkable country, and have finally decided to travel there on 20th May. I would rather have you with me than travelling alone. You are the best travel companion I can think of and our last vacation to Malaysia propels me to invite you to be my tour companion again.

Our semester final is over and we have two-weeks to do something before returning to our classes. I thought travelling to a Scandinavian country would be the best way to spend our holidays. My uncle resides in Copenhagen and he will be a great help there.

I plan to visit my uncle and meet his family first. Then we will visit Roskilde Cathedral, Viking Ship Museum, take a castle tour from Copenhagen and enjoy the countrysides.

I hope you will not turn me down and finalise your preparation to have a memorable tour to Denmark in March.

Warm wishes,

David.

Dear Sara,

It was great to get your postcard from London yesterday and I'm thrilled to hear that you've been promoted to the executive manager position in your company. It was also lovely to see your family when they visited us last summer. We miss you very much.

Last week, I won a prize in a quiz competition and you won't believe what the prize is! It is air-tickets for two to the USA. That was unusual but I have decided to take the advantage and have a trip to the USA. So, I would like you to take the trip with me and spend some quality time. I hope you would be able to manage a week's leave and accompany me during the holidays. You are my best buddy and I want to take you to make the holiday special.

I've already planned for this vacation and the places we should visit. I have primarily relied on TripAdvisor for the places-to-visit and things-to-do and I am sure you will love it. We will spend some time on Florida beaches and visit Statue of Liberty, Universal Studios Hollywood, Metropolitan Museum of Art and a trip to Las Vegas.

I think this is an overwhelming opportunity for both of us, isn't it?

Hope to hear from you very soon. Take care.

With lots of love,

Fadi
