Sample Essay

Dear Peter,

I hope you and your family are doing well. It is my sister’s 25th birthday next Sunday, and we are throwing a little party for her. You should definitely come!

The party is going be at the Moon Street Café, where we used to spend a lot of quality time together. I’m sure you know the way to the café very well, but in case you can’t remember the location, simply text me and I will send you directions. The program for the party is quite fun–we are going to eat, listen to music, and I’ll bring a big strawberry birthday cake with my sister’s name written in chocolate sauce!

You and I have been friends for so long, and you know how much my sister loves you. She will be thrilled if you can come. Also, we haven’t seen each other for a long time since you entered university. I hope you are doing well there and tell us about your interesting university life. 

I look forward to seeing you next week.

Yours,

Chris

範文分析:

在第一段,作者依舊是先向他的朋友彼得問好,然後才說出他為什麼組織這個派對。”It is my sister’s 25th birthday next Sunday, and we are throwing a little party for her”, 下個星期天是我妹妹的25歲生日,我們將為她舉行一個小型派對。

在第二段,作者描述了他將如何組織這個派對,比如派對地點的選擇,”The party is going be at the Moon Street Café, where we used to spend a lot of quality time together”, 派對將在我們曾經在那度過很多美好時光的月亮咖啡館舉行。再比如節目的安排,”we are going to eat, listen to music, and I’ll bring a big strawberry birthday cake with my sister’s name written in chocolate sauce!” 我們要吃飯,聽音樂,我要帶一個大草莓生日蛋糕,上面用巧克力醬寫著我姐姐的名字!

在第三段,作者闡述了彼得來參加這個派對的重要性,主要有兩個,第一,”you know how much my sister loves you, she will be thrilled if you can come”, 你知道我妹妹有多愛你,如果你能來她一定會很高興。第二,”we haven’t seen each other for a long time since you entered university”, 自從你上大學之後,我們已經很久沒有見過面了。

最後一段,作者則再次表示希望彼得來參加派對。”I look forward to seeing you next week”, 我期待著下周見到你。

在這封邀請信的範文當中,我們可以看出來文章的重點有兩個,一是你將如何組織這個派對;二是如何闡述被邀請人的重要性。對於如何組織派對,除了告訴被邀請人派對的時間、地點和節目之外,如果能在節目設計上有亮點就最好了,那樣被邀請人就會被吸引過來參加派對。說到要邀請人的重要性,我們則需要用真情實感去表達我們的期盼。切勿說一些不切實際和虛偽的話,那樣被邀請人就感受不到我們的真誠了。
