GT Writing Task 1 (Letter Writing) Sample # 69
You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.
You have just moved into a new house 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 to the party
Write at least 150 words.
You do NOT need to write any addresses.
Begin your letter as follows:
Dear Mr Peter,
My name is Kevin Lewis, and I am your new neighbour. In fact, I just moved into my new house, next to yours, a couple of days ago. I am planning to hold a party next weekend which will be attended by at least 20-25 people. I also thought that perhaps you and your family members would like to join us as well.
The “housewarming” party is set to start at around 5:00 pm. At first, the guests will be served with soft drinks and snacks of different varieties to keep them full until at least 9:00 pm. After the welcome drinks and snacks, we will have a guitar playing competition in which several of my friends will entertain us with their guitar skills. Finally, we will have dinner before ending the party at around 11:00 pm at the latest.
There will naturally be some talks and laughs at the party, but please rest assured that we will try our best to keep it quiet as much as possible. But, if there are any noise to trouble you, I would like to apologize to you in advance. Thank you.
