A letter to your friend about the Annual Sports Day of your school

I have received your letter just now. I am highly glad at your eagerness to know about the recent Annual Sports Day of our school.

The ceremony was held on the 21st January instant in a befitting manner under a large panda l in the school campus. Our school building and surroundings were nicely decorated with flowers, colour-papers and balloons. Besides the students of the school quite a large number of guardians and other gentlemen came to see the sports. The function was presided over by the headmaster of our school. When the honourable Education Minister as the chief guest arrived, the scouts of our school gave him a guard of honour. He hoisted the national flag with the national anthem and declared the sports meet open by freeing the pigeon in the sky. Many students took part in various games like High Jump, Long Jump, Short Put, Javelin Throw, Running Races, Hurdles Race, Disk Throwing, Musical Chairs and Fancy Dress Competition. Some team events were also organized like Kabaddi, football, volley ball and tug of war. 

You will be glad to know that I won three prizes. I came in first in the 100 meters race, second in the 200 meters race and in the cycle race. I narrowly missed the individual championship cup. After the distribution of the prizes, the chief guest thanked the winners of the prizes for their brilliant success and encouraged them to do better in future. He also advised them to train themselves up in discipline and to build up their character to become good citizens of the country.

At the end, a cultural function was arranged by the students of the school to entertain the guests. It was a very interesting function. After the function was over, the visitors were treated to tea and refreshments and we, too, had a share in these.

With love and good wishes to you.

 

A letter to your friend informing about your aim in life

Some people aim to get wealth, to be famous or to serve mankind. Some wants to become an engineer, a lawyer, a doctor, a businessman or a political leader. Like other I too have an aim in my life. I want to become a teacher.

Wealth does not lure me. I don’t want to be glamorous life of a film star. But I want to serve the youth of my nation in a very humble capacity. In my country almost 40 percentage of the population is illiterate. I want to educate my country’s youth. I believe that I can serve my fellowmen in a best possible manner by becoming a teacher. Many people don’t want to choose this profession because teachers in our country are paid very low. But still I want to become a teacher because money is not my ultimate aim in life. By becoming a teacher I want to become a guide, philosopher and a real friend of the students. I want to turn the inner eye towards light with the powerful tool called education. I believe that in the present era our country is facing two major issues such as superstitious and illiteracy which needs to be dealt as soon as possible. I have the confidence to possess the zeal of a missionary to become a teacher and educate others. I would not only share the subject knowledge with my students but also theoretical knowledge to develop their personal character. I will instill spirit of patriotism and nationalism in the minds of my students so that they are aware about the rights and duties. I will show them the path towards truth to lead a virtuous and noble life.

Let me also know about your future plan. Convey my best regard to your parents and love to the youngers.

A letter to your younger brother giving him the information of opening a bank account

I have received your letter just now and I am very glad to know that you are well. In your letter you wanted to know the system of opening a bank account. Now I am giving the information about it.

First you have to choose a bank to open your account and go there. Then meet to the correspondence officer and express them about your desire.  Never forget to inform him that you are going to open a saving account. It means you can save any amount of money at any time and you can withdraw any amount from your account at any time. He will manage you a form. Then you should fill up the form giving all the data required.  After filling up the form, go to him with two passport size attested photographs of you and another copy of photograph of your beneficiary. Next, give the signature with which you want to deposit and withdraw your money. After that give the form to the bank officers and you will have to deposit a definite amount of money at the time of opening your account. Then, you will receive your account number from the officer; collect the receipt and a deposit book from the bank. Thus, finally you will have a bank account.

No more today. I hope now it will be very easy for you to open your bank account.

Yours ever

Sakib

 

A letter to your friend telling him about your favorite game

Dear Rohit,

Thanks for your letter that makes me familiar with your choice of game. In this respect, my preference is different from yours. I take interest in football, but not cricket.

Cricket does not suit my interest. It is too slow. To enjoy the game of cricket, one needs to spend the whole long day. Among the games I have a great fascination for football. It is a popular game all over the world. It is full of thrill for both the players and the audience. It is an excellent form of exercise that makes the players strong and hardy. It needs lots of stamina and strength to play football. The game of football teaches its players to be disciplined and to be obedient to the rules. It fosters the spirit of love and co-operation among the players. It develops team spirit and sportsman like spirit in the players. It makes the body strong and healthy. Above all, it does not take too much time as it takes in cricket. They are really very interesting, require a quick decision and a killing spirit. Whenever the football matches are on, I just sit before the TV and watch the match from beginning to end. I am a staunch admirer of the Argentina team, a team with unmatched killing spirit. Messi is my favorite player.

Probably your taste must have turned bitter for me, but I don’t mind. We are best friend despite all differences in preferences, choice and opinions. Rest is fine here. Convey my regards to your parents.

Yours very sincerely,

My dear ’X’

Peace be on you through the mercy of Almighty. At the very outset take my cordial love and best wishes. I am extremely sorry not to write to you for a long time. It is a matter of great pleasure for me that I could receive your letter day before yesterday with the information that you have been interested to know the picnic I attended.  

It was the month of December. My examination was over. I along with my friends decided to go on a picnic. It was a thrilling idea. We all were excited. We decided to go to a tea-garden in Sylhet. The garden was the home land of a friend. It was a short journey. We gathered at our school premises. We started our journey in the morning and reached the garden at about 10.00 a.m. We selected an open space which was shaded by trees. Then we proceeded to make arrangements for cooking our food. We brought all the equipments with us. Rima was in charge of cooking. We all assisted her. It took only two hours to prepare the delicious dishes. After taking our food and making a lot of enjoyments, we decided to return. We talked and danced gaily, we sang merrily, we laughed. In fact, we enjoyed the picnic very much. Before evening we got ready to start back. We also enjoyed on our way back home.

No more today. Convey my best regards and heartily complements to your parents. May all my cordial greetings be on your brother. Please pray for me and write to me how you are.

Yours sincerely

A letter about the importance of reading newspaper

11th September, 2013

25, Mugda, Dhaka

Dear Mahir,

I hope you are well and I am also well by the grace of almighty Allah. I became very shocked when I have heard from mother that you are not interested in reading newspaper regularly.

I think it’s really very bad for me because through daily newspaper you can keep yourself in close contact of everyday world which will help you to grow up as smart and intelligent boy. Similarly, you should bear in mind that newspaper is the store house of knowledge. It is a mirror of the current world. By reading newspaper we can enrich our knowledge on various fields. So, the importance of reading newspaper beggars description. Again, the paper is not only for news but also for entertainment. It can provide you education, literature, arts and culture cartoons, puzzles, rhymes, poems, short-stories, paintings, agriculture, jokes and many other entertainments. Moreover it will help you to be thoughtful. Besides this, to be a civilized person, you must be conscious of the social, political and economical conditions of the present time. It is only newspaper, which can save the purpose appropriately. By reading it you could know modern science too. Every student and every educated person should read newspaper. From now, I hope you will read the daily newspaper regularly.

No more today, convey my Salam to father and mother and love to the youngers.  

Your loving brother,

Murad

 

 

Write a letter to a friend thanking him for his hospitality.

I received your affectionate letter a few days ago. I am sorry for not being able to write you earlier because of some uncongenial circumstances. However, now here is everything in order.

Thank you very much for the warmth and hospitality you showed me on my visit to your home last month. You were a great hostess and took so many pains to make me comfortable. Your father was so nice and so was Aunty. I shall never forget the taste of good food she specially cooked for me. Not for a moment, I felt uneasy or an unwanted guest. It was beyond my expectations. I’ve never seen like a family like yours. All the members of your family treated me as you. I found no difference between you and me there. It is said a fish and a guest begin to smell after three days. But I stayed for two weeks and not a single number of protests from any of you. I thank you for helping me in visiting all the places. I also thank you for taking me to the theatre that night. It was a nice movie full of fun, laughter and comic situations. I enjoyed it besides the ice-creams and soft-drinks we had in the interval.

I have brought back rich and everlasting memories. I will never forget those happy and joyful days while I had been with you at your village home. Besides it, please convey my thanks to your all members of the family for their kind treatment and love.

Dear Sami,

Would you not be tempted to see the attractions of Bangladesh? I am sure you will be happy if you come to our country. You are cordially invited to make a tour here in the next dry season.

Bangladesh, one of the world’s finest attractions for tourists, has many bewitching places with uncommon scenic beauty. Among these attractions, Cox’s Bazar, Rangamati, Kaptai, Syllhet, and Sundarbans are most famous. I shall take you there to make your tour worth remembering.

At the sea beach of Cox’s Bazar, the pleasure seekers paradise, you will have a lot of fun and pleasure in bathing and swimming in the water. Running on the sand under the pleasant sun is also pleasing. At Kaptai you will see beautiful Kaptai Lake with its placid transparent water encircled with evergreen forests. There you may enjoy rowing, fishing etc.

In Sylhet, the land of saints and ‘’pirs’’ you will be fascinated to see the local women picking tea leaves with bamboo baskets on their backs. The Sundarbans with its flora and fauna is world famous. Last but not least, Dhaka, the capital has its own attractions.

Write a letter to your friend congratulating him on his success in the examination.

I received your letter just a few hours ago. I can`t but make a unbound joy and pleasure when I have known your result. To secure GPA 5 in the J.S.C. examination is not a matter of joke. You have been intelligent and diligent in your school days. You have made a great result that I have desired. All of your friends and relatives must be proud for your brilliant result. Please accept my heartiest congratulation on your brilliant success. I conveyed this happy news to my father who was sitting beside me. He too was overjoyed.

All of my family members are especially happy that you performed so well even though you had fallen in ill just before the examination. I am sure, this result will encourage you to do better in your higher studies. Keep it up! You will be of great asset to your family and more over to this nation. Please guide your sister also to overcome her JSC examinations which are due in October.

It will create unique pleasure for us if you come to our house. Please convey my respectful compliments to your parents. Again, congratulations to you!

Yours sincerely,

 

A letter to your younger brother advising him to be attentive of his study.

I was disappointed to see your progress report that I received yesterday. You have fared badly in your half-yearly examination. Your performance is dismal in science and mathematics in which you could not even score pass marks. It is shocking indeed.

The poor performance indicates that you are not sincere to your studies. A few of your friends have also complained against you. You devote much time in practising cricket, on mobile phone, laptop, watching TV. There is no denying the fact that sports have their own importance, but nothing should be done at the cost of studies. Primary task of the students is to study.

You know, this is the most important phase in a man’s life. This is the formative period. Your performance during this neriod has a bearing on the whole of your life. This performance lays the foundation of a good career. One who is insincere to one’s studies during this time is bound to repent for the whole of his life. So, wake up before it is too late.

Make a time table and start studying. This is my sincere advice to you to be very sincere to your studies. Never neglect your studies and work hard otherwise you will fail in your final examination. I am confident that you will pay attention to my advice and act upon it.

 

 

 

A letter to your friend about my preparation for the coming examination.

I am glad to receive your letter. In the letter you have wanted to know about my preparation for the coming examination. I am now writing about it. 

You will be very glad to know that I have made a fair progress in my preparation. So, nowadays I am a bit more confident because I have totally a clear understanding of the nature of the question papers in the exam. Besides, I have read the text books thoroughly and explored every nook and corner of them. Moreover, the complex questions are already memorized. Mathematics, English, General Science and Arabic are in my daily practice routine. I believe I can do well with any sorts of question. Now I am checking my weak –point. You know I am weak in Math. But matter of hope is that my elder brother is helping me in Math nowadays. If I can practice in this way, I can hope to overcome problems of Math. Science is also a great factor for me. Symbol, formula and equation seem very difficult.How do you capture Science? I seek your suggestion and advice in this case.

I hope I can overcome it successfully. Pray for me so that I can achieve an expected outcome.
