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 Sir or Madam,
Hope this letter finds you in good health and spirit. I am really glad that you have decided to seek my advice before your parents’ future visit to my area.
The city, where I live, may not be that big, but it certainly has some interesting places to visit. Among them are a large open street market, an artificial but very beautiful looking lake, an old shrine, and a great university that is always full of life. Your parents can actually visit each of these places, one day at a time, and they will find that almost an entire day of theirs is over just to visit only one place!
By the way, apart from visiting these places, I can take them to an old part of the city where many century-old buildings are still standing tall to announce their past glory.
Fortunately, none of these places is really that far away from the old downtown area where one can find lots of hotels to choose from. And if you are lucky, you can even get a very lucrative deal on your stay, depending on what time of the year you are visiting!
I hope they will enjoy their visit to our hometown a lot.
