IELTS letter on Your Colleague Invited You

Your Colleague Found Another Job And Invited You To His/Her Farewell Party. Unfortunately, you are unable to attend it. Write a letter to him/her and say

  • Why can’t you attend the party?

  • Why did you enjoy working with him/her?

  • Offer him/her to meet some other time.

Band 8 IELTS letter sample:

Thank you for extending your farewell lunch invitation to me. Sadly, I have a training session to undergo that day, so I would not be able to attend it.

It was only yesterday that I received an email from our manager to attend this training on Big Data. As the project I am currently working on is moving to this new and powerful technology, it is compulsory for me to attend it.

I have really enjoyed working with you, and I am surely going to miss you. You are not only an amazing team player, but also an expert in your field. I learned a lot of new technical stuff from you when we worked on the same project last year.

Nevertheless, we can meet over a cup of coffee in the evening. My training will get over by 5 pm and after that, I need half an hour to check my emails. Therefore, I am available from 5.30 pm onwards until 7pm. Please let me know if you can make it at this time.

Wishing you all the best for your future endeavors. Stay in touch!

Yours sincerely,
