The card does not carry a very friendly tone.This is supposed to be an informal note to a friend so go for a lighter sense of writing. Make it informal and casual. Don't be so curt and direct in your card. Try to soften the blow of the delay a little. Let me show you my version of how I would have written this letter. You can use it as a sample for the next card you have to write :-)

Dear Jo,
I've got a project at work for presentation next week. Would you mind if we reschedule your visit for the week after instead? I'll be on leave from work then so I can give your visit the full attention it deserves.

I'm sorry,


You do don't have to include the actual apology in the body of the letter. This written work is meant to be an exercise in creative writing. You need to learn how to play with the words in order to get the message across with the least possible words. Think of it as a Twitter message with a longer word count instead of limited characters when you develop your next note :-)

Cao, here are my suggestions on your letter;

- first of all, write from the heart and this goes with all your future writing material
- mind the prompt and think about the idea you want to write, make sure that it corresponds what the prompt is asking you
-it's good to be straight forward or direct to the point, however, it's two things when the letter doesn't feel any soul to it at all

and a letter with conviction and feelings
- a letter should have an introduction, say hi, hello perhaps
- the body of the letter is where you explain or write the purpose of the letter in detail
- and of course, your final message
- lastly, salutation and all that is necessary to be added in the end such as date if you want to

All this guidelines above should help you come up with a stronger revised essay.
When you're done, post it here on EF so we can assist you further.

QUESTION 7
This is part of a letter you receive from an English friend.
I'm starting a new school next term and I'm worried because I won't know anyone there. What do you think are the best ways to make new friends? Please write back soon.

SCRIPT
Hi my dear friend,
I am feel unhappy/sorry to know this news. Nevertheless, I am happy for you to learn at that famous school.
In my opinion, the most important thing is BEING nice to everybody then you could join in a sport club if you can.
Secondly, you should take part in organized activities because that is great way to meet people and try to remember people's all names.
Thirdly, If you see anyone going alone, go over and talk to them. they may have no friends and you could be an answer to their prayers. In addition, look for other people who are new to the school and be kind to them.

Finally, meet up with your new friends outside of school once you get to know them.
In general, you don't worry a lot about that.
Your best friend,
Tu

Tu, when you write the notes, always keep it informal and friendly. You are not writing a note to the principal of your school. So just keep it casual and light.

Hey Daryl,
I've got tickets to watch the American film "Self/less" at the Megaplex tonight. It stars your fellow Canadian Ryan Reynolds. Make it a date at 5 p.m.? Meet you at the cinema door. Send a text if you can come.

Tu

Hi Tim,
Making friends is only hard at first. I discovered that as long as i was nice to people, they became my friends. There will always be extra curricular activities and clubs that you can join at the school. I found that by joining the clubs that were of interest to me, I was able to make more friends because of the commonalities between us. So don't forget to sign up for those activities during the first week of school. It will definitely pay off for you in terms of making friends and becoming more sociable.

Your friend,
Tu
