Para. 1My dear Michael,

It seems ages since we heard from you — and even longer since you went to work in China. But recently we happened to bump into Charlie Wright at a party, and from him we learnt that you and Lucia will be coming to England over the Christmas holidays. So I am writing straightaway — to make sure this reaches you well before you leave Shanghai — in the hope that it will be possible for you both to spend a few days with us during your stay in England.

Para. 2I am still teaching English Literature in a university and I am getting well along with my colleagues. I also have some Chinese students here, who are very friendly and intelligent.

Para. 3I imagine you will be spending Christmas with your parents, but surely you will have some time after that before your Christmas holidays end. We shall be having two other friends of ours staying with us over the New Year weekend, and it would be nice if you could come then, too. Mike and Rosa Griffiths are old friends and a

Para. 4There’s not a great deal to report from our end. Mary is well and still enjoying her school teaching (at least, I think so); the children are growing up at a terrifying rate; I am still working for Sanderson’s and liking it well enough — though occasionally pining for the footloose days of long ago. But let’s hope you will soon be here to see for yourselves — and help us see the New Year in!

Para. 1My dear Michael,

It seems ages since we heard from you — and even longer since you went to work in China. But recently we happened to bump into Charlie Wright at a party, and from him we learnt that you and Lucia will be coming to England over the Christmas holidays. So I am writing straightaway — to make sure this reaches you well before you leave Shanghai — in the hope that it will be possible for you both to spend a few days with us during your stay in England.

So I am writing straightaway — to make sure this reaches you well before you leave Shanghai — in the hope that it will be possible for you both to spend a few days with us during your stay in England.

Analysis:

1

To make sure… is an adverbial of purpose, and in the hope ,a prepositional phrase used also as an adverbial of purpose.

Translation:所以我马上写信,好让你在离开上海之前肯定收到这封信 —— 希望你们俩能在英格兰逗留期间和我们一起住几天。  

Example: I am sending this card to you today —to make sure you receive it before the Christmas Day.

Para. 2I am still teaching English Literature in a university and I am getting well along with my colleagues. I also have some Chinese students here, who are very friendly and intelligent.

Analysis:

Surely is used to express that someone is certain or almost certain about something.

Analysis:

Sanderson’s here refers to a company implying Sanderson’s

Company; though is introducing a participle clause pining for …

and serving as the adverbial of concession.

Translation:我还在桑德森公司工作,而且工作很称心 —— 虽然

偶尔我也渴望从前自由自在的日子。  

Para. 4There’s not a great deal to report from our end. Mary is well and still enjoying her school teaching (at least, I think so); the children are growing up at a terrifying rate; I am still working for Sanderson’s and liking it well enough — though occasionally pining for the footloose days of long ago. But let’s hope you will soon be here to see for yourselves — and help us see the New Year in!

sometimes pining for the footloose school days.

Passage ii an invitation letter

Format analysis

A letter of invitation to a formal occasion, say, a symposium, forum or conference is different from a personal letter. It is more like the announcement of an event, informing the recipient of the aim, topic(s) and sponsor(s) of the event, and the place and time it is to be held. Usually a registration form and a list of topics are attached to it. Dates for papers, social events, and an introduction of local sightseeing tours, etc., are also stated.
