GT Writing Task 1 (Letter Writing) Sample # 72

You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.

Write a letter to your friend, who lives in another town, and invite him/her to a party you are going to organise.

In your letter, explain:

  • why are you holding the party
  • who are expected to be present at the party
  • invite your friend and give directions on how to get there

Write at least 150 words.

You do NOT need to write any addresses.

Begin your letter as follows:

Dear ………….,


Model Answer:

Dear Bob,

I haven’t heard from you in a long time and hope that all is well with you. Anyway, you will be glad to know that I have got a job offer from one of the leading telecommunication companies, and I will be starting the new job after a couple of weeks from now. You will also be happy to know that I am going to hold a party to celebrate this great occasion of getting a “new job” on the 18th of February next month. Please be present at the party and make it even more special.

My family members and some of our old-time university friends, like Peter, Jonson and Raul, are expected to be present at the party also. I have already invited 25 guests and most of them are friends and family.

I hope, you haven’t forgotten the direction to come to my place. But, in case if you don’t have the direction with you, here it is once again- first, take the M12 highway, drive about 2 hours until you hit the Jupiter Street. Turn right on Jupiter and pass a few signal lights until you reach the Victoria shopping mall, and my home is right behind the mall a couple of blocks away. Just call me if you have trouble finding my place.

I look forward to seeing you at the party.

Warm wishes,

Louis Ferguson

  1. Dear Farida,

    I hope you are doing great and your days have been good. As you already know, Tola will turn to 40 on the 30th of January and as her best friend and maid of honour, I will like to organize a surprise party for her. Alongside a couple of her colleagues and family members, I am also inviting all the ladies and their spouses.

    The venue for this event is the Satin Hall, Grand Hyatt Hotel, Boulevard Road and the dress code is ‘Old School Funky’. Being a surprise party, everyone is expected to arrive at the venue 20 minutes before the kick-off time which is 6 pm. Please note that this letter serves as your Save The Date. Folake will hand-deliver your invitation card on Saturday, at the salon.

    I am very excited at the thought of the night and also having you and Bob at the party. I have paid for a Karaoke Machine and some paraphernalia so we can act and sing like we did when we were in school.

    Please remember to arrive early so as not to ruin the surprise. See you soon.

    Warm regards,

    Jane Doe
