Dear ChiyoI'm writing to thank you for your invitation to come stay with you in Japan. Sadly, I will have to turn you down as I will be very busy during that time, moving house. Let me tell you a little bit more about my situation. We have been renting a house in Durban for a year. Recently, our landlord has become very difficult. So we've decided to move to improve our living conditions. Unfortunately, the days we need to move fall on the time you want me to visit. Would you be able to have me over in August… Read more »

Hi , some people write salutation and answer to point 1 in two separate paragraphs. Which is more appropriate one paragraph or two?
How are you guys doing? I hope you all are doing great in your studies! Exams are coming right?

Firstly I'd like to thank you for your invitation. It's very kind of you and I would be extremely happy to join but unfortunately I wont be able to make it due to my very hectic work schedule.

Dear Joy,I am writing to thank you for your invitation to visit your country That was very kind of you. Unfortunately, I won't be able to come,due to my hectic schedule at my new job. Let me explain my situation in detail. I got a new job as a medical officer at a private hospital, and it requires me to work long shifts throughout the week, leaving me with little or no time for myself. I enjoy my job however, because I get the privilege to save lives; which you know has been my dream from childhood. I'd request for… Read more »

Is it mandatory to use contraction in all possible places for informal letters?

If it's recommended , then how would one make a difference between " I would " and " I had" as both are written as I'd .

Will it reduce my score as the examiner might get confused ?

Is it okay to use contraction only at places where there is zero probability of getting confused and write full words at critical places?

Lucky that I found E2 IELTS on the way preparing myself for the test. Few days ago I took the academic test and I can say with pride I will get at least band 7.5 overall with probably L8 R8 W7 S7.
Within next week I'm taking the general training test as well to serve my application requirements for work, fingers crossed that I'd keep up the good work

In your other video, you said, " I'm writing to…." This is a formal form of starting a sentence but I can see you used it here. So my question is which one should I follow?

I recently got promoted at work to a sales manager which has been my dream for the past 3 years, as you well know. Unfortunately, this new position comes with more work hours and deadlines especially during the summer time, which is our peak… Read more »
