LETTER-WRITING is an important channel of communication between people who are geographically distant from one another. In earlier times when the telephone and e-mail were not available, the only means of communication between people was through letters.
So, here I am going to show how you can write a letter. In this article, we will provide you with detailed information regarding the formal letter format about inviting a friend to your home for the summer vacation. Read on to know everything about formal letter format. Below I have given the full format of a letter, by following which you can write the letter and can apply for.

My dear Kakku,
My summer vacation commences on the 13th instant and I leave for home at Maldah that very night. Perhaps your school also closes about that time. Where do you propose to spend the vacation? If you
are not already booked, I earnestly request you to come with me to
my family at Maldah. No doubt, you will miss there some of the amenities you are used to in Calcutta. Still I do not think you will feel altogether dull and bored. Maldah has many attractions of its own. The ruins of Gour and Pandu are very close to the present town. I shall also take you to Ramkeli, sacred to the memory of Lord Srichaitanya and the devout brothers, Rupa and Sanatan. They will take you back to the glorious days of Bengal’s past. Lastly, there is the famous Maldah fazli. I have also some friends there. So there is no fear about your feeling lonely in your new surroundings.
In the family too you will not feel ill at ease. I have a brother and a sister, both mere children. They are very fond of me and like my company. Of my parents I need not write anything.
Let me tell you that I shall be greatly disappointed if you decline. Please accept my best wishes and convey regards to your parents.
