1 Sample answer
Hi Jack
Thanks for your email. It was very good to hear from you again after all this time.
I’ve been working really long hours recently revising for my exams, but on Saturday I’m planning to take a break and go to see ‘Murder Mystery’. It’s excellent – and it’s the last night.
Would you like to come along? I emailed Sue and Milo yesterday to see if they can come, and they say they can, so it should be a good evening. They suggested going for something to eat together after the show – I know you like Italian food so we could all go to Gino’s Pizzas. I’ve never been before, but everyone says it’s very good.
Let me know if you’re free and would like to come, then I’ll book the tickets.
Hope to see you on Saturday.
Best wishes
Pedro
