I haven't been here for a while, because I was learning english and I have progress. Now, I learing how to writing and I wrote example letter to friend and I have question how to write more like native speaker? Can you check mistakes and rebuilt this letter for me?


Hi John,

How are you?We haven't seen each other a while. I have got your letter, which you sent to me and I hae to say I am proud of you. I always knew you will get married first and I hae to admit you chose great girl.

I accept your initation and I will be glad to show on your wedding reception. I would never forgive myself, if I miss that special day, which will be ery important for you. I'm looking forward to see you and your fiancee.

So, if you need any help with a wedding, such as help with decorating a wedding hall or need money, don't hesitate to tell me. I will be happy to help you. At the end I want to congratulate you and wish the best moments in your life.

Your best firend, XYZ

Hi John,

How are you? We haven't seen each other for a while. I've got the letter that you sent to me and I have to say I'm proud of you. I always knew you will get married first and I have to admit you chose a great girl.

I accept your invitation and I'd be glad to be in your wedding reception. I'll never forgive myself, if I miss that special day, which is very important to you. I'm looking forward to see you and your fiancee.

By the way, if you need any help with the wedding, such as help with decorating the wedding hall or money, don't hesitate to tell me. I'll be happy to help you.

At the end, I want to congratulate you and wish you the best moments in your life.

Your best friend,

XYZ


Here are some tips:

  • Use "the" for something that you and your friend recognize : if you need any help with the wedding...the wedding hall... (you both know what you're talking about) there are some exceptions but it's often true.
  • In informal English we usually use contracted forms: I am (I'm), I will (I'll)
  • For expressing our desire we can use "would": I would be glad to be in your ceremony or I'd be glad to ...
  • Instead of the last sentence you can just say "Best wishes!"

Thank you for your help.


I'm confuse when I hae to use which and that. That = persons Which = nouns, things


"I've got the letter that you sent to me " = correct

"I've got the letter which you sent to me " = incorrect

Site Hint: Check out our list of pronunciation videos.

Actually, both of them are correct. I just like the first one more. Don't be upset of that.
