During the entire school year I have really enjoyed your company and all the time we’ve spend studying and relaxing together. I have talked to my parents about you a great deal and they would really enjoy making your acquaintance. They have asked me to invite you to stay at our home over the summer vacation. I think this would be a great opportunity for us to spend more time together and get to know each other even better. I really hope that you will be able to join me in my hometown for the vacation.
Looking forward to our meeting.

Dear Mr. Black:
I am terribly sorry to inform you that I am unable to go to school today owing to a severe headache. I enclose a certificate from the doctor who is attending on me, as she fears it will be two days before I shall be able to resume my study. Could you kindly excuse my absence on Monday and Tuesday? Thanks。

Fred is now with us. He is going to New York tomorrow morning to pursue his graduate study and we will not be able to see him for a long time. We are having a dinner party at 7 p.m. this evening at my home. It would be nice if you could come over and see him。

A friend of yours, Zhang Peng, made a long distance call from Shanghai this morning while you went out. He asked you to book an air ticket for Hebei at 2: 30 a.m., February 8, and make a reservation for hotel room tonight. I am sorry that I can’t pass on the message to you in your presence, because I was ordered to do something urgent。
