Dear Mr John,
I have a problem that my brother is getting married on the coming August 25. As the oldest child, I have a
charge of helping my family to celebrate the wedding. I must return home on the occasion so that I could
arrange everything well before the day.
However, I was allotted a mid-term project for the Linguistics class. The time to hand in my project is by
November 1st. I am trying to do it as best as possible to catch up the deadline. But I cant finish the project by
the time allocated because of his wedding as I present above.
I would like to ask you for an extension of the due date until the following week after November 1st.
Im sorry for any unconvinient this may cause. I shall be grateful for your consideration.
I am looking forward to hearing from you.
Yours faithfully,

Dear Sir/ Madam,

I am writing to require about the information for booking a holiday apartment in Singapore.

I will go on a holiday with my family for two weeks. We consist of four people in total. We will depart at 8.30
am on 26th October and reach Singapore airport at about 12.00 am that day. However, It is said that the flight
may arrive in the airport at about half an hour later than its schedual because of heavy rain.

Therefore, We would like to book a well- furnitured apartment there. It would be better if the apartment
locates in a peaceful and romantic place so that we can enjoy fresh air and go boating. We also want to see
the overview of Singapore. Could you please recommend us some apartments and give us the information
about the price.

I am looking forward to seeing your reply, soon.

Your faithfully,

Topic: The benefits of building a sport centre in a city
I support the construction of a sport centre in our city because It will create an interesting playground for
city dwellers and help them stay healthy.
Firstly, a sport centre will be a usefull playground for many people. For example, many sport competitions
can be organised for both adults and children such as badminton, volleyball, football, or swimming. This is a
good chance for young people to spend their time actually. So this may reduce the risk of their involvements
in bad habity. Moreover, playing sports helps people develop their teamwork skill when playing sports people
will know how to co-ordinate with others to get the best result .
Secondly,a sport centre will be a usefull playground for lots of people. In fact, people will gather in the
sport centre to do exercise in the morning or in the afternoon. It will make them avoid some health problems,
such as heart sickness or hypertension. Beside that, doing exercise regularly makes peoples muscle
become stronger so they can undertake their work better.
In short, it is more advantages in building a sport centre in our city because it will be a good playground
for citizens and helps them stay fit and healthy.

Topic: Teenagers should be given time to get involved in outside school activities.
Some parents believe that outside - school activities are bad for their children and they try to restrict their
children from talking part in these activities. I strongly believe that teenagers should be given time to get
involved in outside school activities.
First of all, the students who have to work in the school during the weekdays should relax by having
leisure activities, such as playing sports, or get together with their friends. They can do something outdoor to
enjoy fresh air and nature after hard working at school.
Moreover, many teenagers spend too much time, playing video games, watching TV. This is bad for
children. They must take part in activities with each other to develop social skill.
Furthermore, scientists say that a student who only works at school is a bit less successful than others
who have time to get involve in outside school activities.He doesnt have any social experience, which is
very necessary for his studying now and his job and life in the future.
To sum up, I think that the children should be given time to take part in outside school activities. I am sure
that it helps them develop not only their life but also get without stress.

Dear Mary,
Thanks for your letter. Very happy to see you in my city next year.

You asked me about the accommodation. Instead of staying in the hostel of the university campus, youll be
able to find somewhere else to live. There are many quite cheap rooms for rent in the centre of the city and it
is very easy for you to find one that suits you. Dont be worry about thatAnyway, Ill help you whenever you
come.

Concerning your part-time job that you asked me about a job in a restaurant or in a shop. I think working in a
restaurant is too busy but you dont have time in the evening then. I believe itll be more fun if you work in a
souvenir shop. There, youll get more chance to talk to many local people and its a good way for you to
practice . Whats more ? Ive already told my friend about this as she has promised to give you a job
whenever you come here.

I hope Ive answered all your questions and please let me know when you come, so I can pick you up at the
airport.
Im looking forward to seeing you.

ic 4. You have recently been to stay with an old friend for a few days. You hadnt seen each other for
a long time. Write a letter to the friend. In the letter:
. Say how you felt about the visit
. Refer to some thing enjoyable that you did while staying with him / her
. invite your friend to visit you.

Dear Lee,

Long time no see !How are you ? Ive been so busy that I have no time to write you soon. Ive been thinking
of the visit while I was staying with you inNew York. It was great. I had never been there before, so
everything was very interesting, and the visit was more exciting than I had expected.

All I have to tell you is that the time I was with you was really enjoyable. I liked the feeling that we had a
coffee at the corner and talked to each other about the crowd of the city. Besides, walking along the Wall
Street, seeing the Statue of Liberty and shopping at some famous department stores were also fine. I think
surfing was thrilling because it was the first time I had ever experienced such an exciting sport. It relaxed me
a lot.

So far, I havent seen you. Would you like to come toVietnamand stay with me for a few days ? There many
things you can do when you stay here . Moreover, you can also enjoy Mid-Fall festival inVietnam. I am
convinced that we will have fun together.

Im looking forward to hearing from you soon.
