The end of 2008 is fast coming to end and I want to have a Christmas party at my house with friends.

Would you like to accept our invitation to our party? The party is scheduled to start at around one o'clock and expected to end at around five, to be followed by a walk around the park close by. The park is about five minutes from my house on foot. I want to mention that this park has won praises for its serene winter beauty.

The walk around the park is optional and is for those who want to stay around a bit longer. Should you decide to accept our invitation, you are cordially asked to respond by December 20 (December 20th??) so we can arrange for the party.

I hope to see you there.

It sounds a bit formal for the occasion:

Please come to a party at our place from 1:00 to 5:00, followed by a walk through the park only about five minutes away from our place and known for its serene winter beauty. RSVP by December 20.
Thank you. What is the difference?

The end of 2008 is fast coming to end/to an end.
Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.
Say "It's coming to an end."
Don't say "the end of 2008 is coming to an end" -- say either "The end of 2008 is coming," or "The year 2008 is coming to an end."
Thank you. Would it be wrong to do without the article? I think we usually write "room 7" or "classroom 7".

Year 2008 is coming to an end.
Site Hint: Check out our list of pronunciation videos.
Say either "2008 is coming to an end" or "The year 2008 is coming to an end."

Don't say "Year 2008..."
