 say when you will be home and suggest what you could do together that evening

Golden Tips for Letter Writing

  1. You must use an appropriate and clear tone (i.e. formal or informal).
  2. Your letter must reflect a clear objective/purpose.
  3. Stick to your topic, do not deviate from it.
  4. You must cover all of the points mentioned in the statement.
  5. The letter must be well-organised, with logically connected ideas.
  6. Use some good words and phrases.
  7. Do not commit too many grammatical errors.

Dear Ravi,
I am glad you are coming to visit me. Unfortunately, I will be busy till the evening on the day you arrive. But don’t worry, I will leave the keys to my house under the door mat so that you can get in and make yourself at home until I get there.
 explain arrangements you have made for them to have keys and get into the house

When you get out of the airport exit, go directly to the bus station and wait for the number 45 route bus that will take you to my house. It is a 30 minute bus trip that makes a nice tour through town. When the bus reaches the old Hanuman temple at Shakti Puram, get off the bus and walk one block down to get to my house. The complete address is House No. 3445, Lane 3 Shakti Puram.

 tell your relative how to get from the airport to your house

I will be arriving around 7:00 p.m. which is a perfect time for us to have dinner at a nice restaurant downtown.
 say when you will be home and suggest what you could do together that evening

See you soon, take care

Proofread for the possible errors

Important Suggestion

  1. Unless you write the same letter and deliberately try to use the new CVG you have learnt, there is no use of attending these lectures.
  2. It is important for you to get it assessed by an expert to recognize your weak areas.
  3. Comparing your composition with the writing of the expert will also improve your writing skills.
  4. One lecture and one writing from your side are not enough. Target at least 50 input lectures and 50 writings by you for each task type.
