Dear …………………,

Sample Answer:

Dear Susan,

I hope you are doing well.

I’m writing to let you know how excited I am after learning that you will be visiting Toronto next month. It’s a pleasure to meet you, and I’m looking forward to making some long-lasting memories with you. Additionally, I’ll be on summer break from college for the next two months, so we can explore the city and enjoy our local food and drinks together, especially your favourite ice cream rolls.

I would be delighted to have you stay at my home, which is quite spacious, and I don’t think you will have any trouble adapting to our lifestyle. This way, we’ll be able to spend more time together, and you’ll not have to worry about incurring additional expenses for the outside accommodations.

Apart from that, I would suggest that you carry only light clothing on your visit during this summer. Moreover, I would advise you to bring any required medications along with your prescription because getting medicine in Canada without a prescription is very difficult and expensive unless you have your own private health insurance.

I eagerly await your arrival in my city. Have a wonderful journey.

With love,
Fifty Geeks
