Moving House

Moving House

You have recently moved to a different house. Write a letter to an English speaking friend to tell them about it.

In your letter:

- Explain why you have moved
- Describe the new apartment
- Invite him to pay a visit


Dear Dav,

You are aware that I have moved out of my formal house. I decided to move out of the house because of the poor attitude of my landlord in maintaining the house. He does not respond when the house need general repairs. For instance, I took him four weeks to fix a broken boiler in the house during last winter.

My new house is a spacious three bedrooms flat and located near major bus routes with many shops within three to four minutes walking distance. It also has a park within seven minutes’ walk away from my house which my kids are very excited about. The landlord is also very friendly and understanding.

I will like to invite you for a visit. My wife and kids are looking forward to having you. We are preparing to cook one of your favourite food. If you don’t mind, you can come along with a friend.

Kind regards,
Abdullahi

Moving to a New House

You have recently moved to a different house. Write a letter to an English speaking Friend. In your letter:

- Explain why you have moved
- Describe the new apartment
- Invite him to pay a visit.



Dear Kola,

Trust you are good, hope you have settled down at work.

I am writing you to inform you that I have finally moved from my old house. As mentioned to you in my last letter to you, My Landlady wanted to renovate the house hence she gave her tenants six months notice to move out of the house.

I was lucky, I got an apartment not to far from my son's school and my place of work. The apartment cost less and it is way bigger than my previous apartment.

I particularly like this apartment because its has a big kitchen with an in-built dish washer and a lovely terrace where my son can play with his friends.

I am confident that you will love my new home. I hope you and your daughter, Dara will come to visit us soon.

Looking forward to seeing you.

Mojisola

Sounds to formal
by: Alex

The usage of "Hence", which is a high-end and old-fashioned is absolutely inappropriate in informal letters.

The overall feel of this letter is like semi-formal one written to a friend.

Not a perfect sample to use as a guidance unfortunately...

Moving House

by Shamim Raihan
(Dhaka, Bangladesh)

You have recently moved to a different house. Write a letter to an English speaking Friend. In your letter:

- Explain why you have moved
- Describe the new apartment
- Invite him to pay a visit.


Dear John,

Hope this letter finds you well. I am writing to let you know that we moved to a new place last month.

There are a range of reasons behind moving to a new address. First of all, you know I have changed my job recently so the new job location was very far from my old address. It is now very convenient from my new home. Secondly, my parents come from Australia and will be living with us from now on. So, It became very difficult to accommodate 4 people in our old place. That’s why we needed to shift.

You will be happy to see our new apartment.It is on the sixth floor of a ten story building. We have 2 master bedrooms and a small bedroom. In addition to that, It has 2 washrooms, a kitchen and a huge living room where we watch TV.I must not forget to say, my bedroom has a beautiful view of a park outside. Most importantly this apartment has a lot of open space that we love most.

Last but not least, please pay as a visit anytime soon. We will love to see you here. I bet you will not regret the visit.

Please let me know when you are coming. I will look forward to hearing from you.

Yours,
Sam

Moving to a Different House

by Anthony Junior
(Lagos Nigeria)

You have recently moved to a different house. Write a letter to an English speaking Friend. In your letter:

- Explain why you have moved
- Describe the new apartment
- Invite him to pay a visit


Dear Anthony,

It is with great pleasure that I'm writing to you today since it's almost two months since we last saw each other, I really miss all the quality time we spent together during summer last year.I am writing this letter to inform you that I have recently moved out of my old apartment to a new one.

The major reason why I had to move out of my old apartment is because of the security problems in the area.As you can really the panic mode we both experienced because of the constant gunshot sound we heard everyday during late night on your last visit and also the lack of basic amenities like electricity, constant water and good road channel also played it's part on why I had to move out of my old apartment into a new one.

And also I believe you're going to love my new apartment as it is a new fully furnished four bedroom detached duplex along Ajah road with a massive kitchen downstairs and a very large living room.It also have carpark,a beautiful dark green painting and also a fancy gate and a large compund for children's playground.

I will be very happy if you and the children can come for a visit this coming Christmas,I have missed them alot and here is my new address Num.7 John street,along Ajah road incase you decide to show up with your children.

All the best,
John

Moving House

You have recently moved to a different house. Write a letter to an English speaking Friend. In your letter:

- Explain why you have moved
- Describe the new apartment
- Invite him to pay a visit.


Dear Baljeet,

With all my excitement, I would like to tell you that I have shifted to a new accommodation in Saket.

I moved here last weekend during auspicious time of Navratra. The reason for change was the long travelling hours from my last accommodation to my office.

As you already know that I recently changed my work location to Delhi and the long travelling hours would leave me tired for whole day. With this new change I am saving almost 2 hours daily.

My new paradise is a 2 bedroom apartment facing park. Its well-connected by metro and has a Select city walk mall just 2 km away. The place is well furnished and has really good ventilation , something I always look out for.

I would like you to plan a visit someday to my new place. We can also plan a pajama party to revisit our old good memories.

Hope to see you soon. Waiting eagerly for your visit.

Bhawna Sharma

Moving to a Different House

by Rubab
(UAE)

You have recently moved to a different house. Write a letter to an English speaking Friend.

In your letter:

- Explain why you have moved
- Describe the new apartment
- Invite him to pay a visit


Dear John,

It's been such a long time since we've written to each other. I hope you and your family are doing well. Today I'm writing to you for two reasons, first that we've moved to a new house and second to invite you to visit us.

As you know, my son started to go to school, and the school was at one hour drive from our previous residence. So my husband and I decided to change our accommodation and moved to a new place yesterday.

Our new apartment is on the sixth floor of ten story building situated on the main street in uptown. It has two bedrooms, and both are twice the size of our last one. Also, it has a huge hall which we turned into our living area, and yet it has enough space for my son to play, the kitchen has an inbuilt dishwasher, and that's not all the main attraction is the terrace which faced towards the beach and gives the apartment a spacious look.

I can't wait to show you our new house, please come over this weekend for dinner and be our first guest, also bring your family with you so that we can all spend some quality time together.
No excuses will be accepted, so see you soon.

Best wishes,
Rubab

House Move

- Explain why you have moved

Dear Iz,

its been quite while. How is mum and dad? How about your catty?

I have missed you all since we moved out to our new home. It was inevitable to move as my grannies were coming to leave with us permanently. The old house, as you know, was quite small.

Guess what? The new house is fabulous. It has a large balcony overlooking a very nice well-trimmed golf field. Its a 4-room house with lots of inside and outside space. I now have a room to myself and my kid sister. We have enough space to play without anybody constantly yelling at us to be careful. When you come around, which am very sure you will soon, am sure you will enjoy the space. In other words, am inviting you to come spend the last weekend of summer with us. We will certainly have a lot of fun. I hope you'll come.

Special greeting from Casey. She's staring at me even as i write this.

Always and ever,
Vickky
