Letter Sample #103 – You have moved into a home and are planning a party

GT Writing Task 1 (Letter Writing) Sample # 103

You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.

You have just moved into a new home and are planning to hold a party. You are worried that the noise may disturb your neighbour.

Write a letter to your neighbour.

In your letter,

  • introduce yourself
  • describe your plans for the party
  • invite your neighbour to come

Write at least 150 words.

You do NOT need to write any addresses.

Begin your letter as follows:

Dear ……………,


Model Answer:

Dear Mr Gilbert,

Hope this letter finds you in good health and spirit. Please allow me to introduce myself first before describing the purpose of this letter. My name is Peter James. I am your new neighbour, and I have just moved into the house next to you. Anyway, the reason for which I am writing this letter to you is that I am planning to hold a party next weekend which will be attended by some of my friends and relatives.

While I certainly hope to conclude the party quickly, there are chances that there might be some noises since some of my friends would have some fun playing the guitar and some music. Besides, I am also planning to have a barbeque party on my front lawn which just might generate some unwanted noises to cause some disturbances for you.

So, I am apologizing to you in advance if the noise, created by the guests at my party, causes you some discomfort and inconvenience in the coming weekend. By the way, why don’t you join us at our weekend party and allow me the pleasure to meet you personally? I hope that would be great.

I am hoping to meet you at the party.

Yours sincerely,

Peter James
