Sample letter to your pen-friend, who lives in England, introducing yourself to him

Dear Avinash,

Thanks for the letter. It gives me great pleasure to have correspondence with a pen-friend like you and is interested in continuing this in future. In fact, it is this correspondence which helps us to come closer and know more about ourselves.

In the very beginning I would like to give you a brief introduction of myself. As you know, I am Rajnish but fondly called Vinni. I am 17 years old. I am a student of class XII of Delhi Public School. My father is a Class I officer in education department. I am a science student. I have great interest in mathematics. I want to be an engineer.


I am very serious with my studies. I have been a high ranking student all along. I have a younger sister Nikki. She reads in Class VIII in Modern Public School. My mother is a housewife. Apart from studies, I have great interest in gardening, singing and photography. I enjoy playing the game of cricket. The city I live in is the capital of India. It is a historical city. It is situated on the bank of the river Yamuna.

I am eager to have an introduction of you in your next letter. I hope you will be enthusiastic to do so.

Yours sincerely, Rajnish
