Write a Letter to Your Friend Sharing an Incident You Recall

By | October 10, 2021

In the journey of our life, many incidents happen to all of us. Some of them are very casual and we often forget them. But some are so significant that those eventually become memories. From that storage of our numerous memories, we keep recalling many incidents throughout our life and share them with our family and friends mostly with whom we created those memories.

Many educational institutions use this context to frame a topic to test their students’ English comprehension skills and verbal expressing ability. In this session, you will learn how to write letters to your friend sharing the incident you recall. So, without further delay, let’s get started.

Dear Tristan,

Yesterday, I suddenly recalled the day when I first came to our school. I am writing this letter to you to share my experience regarding that.

Nobody ever forgets the day when they first come to their school. I also didn’t. But yesterday, I suddenly recalled that I first met you at the school and all the activities we did on our very first day. Remember, you were my first friend in the unknown building. I was afraid and not talking with anybody. You came and introduced yourself, and I told you that I am afraid of making new friends. That’s how our friendship began. That day, we first shared our tiffin and that tradition is still continuing after years. I even recalled that we drew a picture on the bench that day, and made fun of other students. 

It’s such an amazing experience you know! It’s like I am witnessing that day again in front of me like a movie. It is fantastic. Do you still remember that day? Let me know in your next letter.

Dear Kamal,

I have just finished the last letter you wrote to me. There you wanted to know about one of my travel experiences to a hill station. While reading your letter, I recalled my trip to the Queen of hills, Darjeeling, two years back. Here, I am writing to you about that amazing trip.

I have been to many hill stations before Darjeeling. But believe me, Darjeeling was an amazing experience. I still remember that day when we started our journey from NJP to Darjeeling. When our car was entering the hilly terrain of the Darjeeling district, I was so excited. I can still feel that excitement inside. Darjeeling city was so beautiful. All the hills were full of greenery. We went to visit a few tea estates. And for the first time, I experienced riding a ropeway and toy train. But my favourite one in Darjeeling was the sunrise from Tiger hill. It was simply amazing. 

What about your experience of travelling to hill stations? Let me know in your next letter. 

Your loving friend

Dear Amal,

Yesterday while going to school, I suddenly recalled the fight that we had 3 years back. I am writing this letter to you today to share my feelings regarding that fight. 

Basically, I was passing by the same place where we fought over just a book. Do you remember the incident? We used to be good friends before the fight. But after that day, we didn’t talk to each other for months. But, I do admit that I made a mistake. I hit you first. No matter how bitter the experience was, I really enjoyed recalling the incident. After a few months of that fight, we came back together as best friends again and our friendship continued. 

Yesterday, when I was recalling the incident, it seemed so funny that we fought over such a silly issue. But then I started admiring our friendship that despite the bitter fight, we remained best friends till now. Let me know your thoughts on that incident. Take care.

Your best friend,

Dear Taniya,

It’s been a long time I haven’t heard from you. This year’s puja vacation is going to come soon. How are you doing? I was just recalling our last year’s puja vacation that we spent together.

Last year was so much fun. You came to my house along with your family. We went for dinner together, visited puja pandals, and spent the Dashera together. Do you remember the firecracker show we attended? Aah, I can forget that experience. Thousands of firecrackers were lighting the entire dark sky. It was amazing. Everyday afternoon we used to play badminton together. After yesterday, I’m literally missing last year’s vacation.
