Letter Writing # 272 - Advice regarding your friend's parents' visit to your area

IELTS Letter Writing / GT Writing Task 1:

You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.

Your friend has written a letter to you asking for advice regarding a visit that his/her parents will be making to your area in the near future.

Write a letter to your friend. In your letter,

  • recommend a place where they can stay
  • suggest the places they can visit
  • offer to do something with them

Write at least 150 words.

You do NOT need to write any addresses.

Begin your letter as follows:

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


Model Answer: 

Dear Jessica,

I'm so glad to hear from you after a long time.  I'm also very happy that your parents are planning to visit the area where I live.  So, any idea as to exactly what time of the year your parents are planning to visit?  But, if I were them, I'd visit it during the spring because that’s when it becomes alive and more enjoyable due to the formation of some “bird colony”. 

They can also visit the large shopping mall during the daytime while visiting the small restaurants near the river during the evening.  They can enjoy some affordable but fresh food, in addition to visiting a famous but old olive garden there.  But, if they are not into any of these things, I'd be more than happy to accompany them to some temples, the museum, and also perhaps meet some very generous local residents. 

By the way, once they visit here, they can stay at one of the hotels on north Rupel Street since they are not only affordable but also close to the downtown.

Hope to meet them soon.  Talk to you again!

Best wishes,
