Writing a letter of advice to a friend

Sample

Your friend wrote to you asking for advice on

  • how to manage his/her time efficiently while preparing for exams
  • how to cope with both study and doing household chores at home
  • what to do to relieve the anxiety before exams

Hi. How are you? I’m like you very busy preparing for my examinations at school. I’m sorry to hear that you’re feeling anxious and unhappy. But I am grateful that you have shared your problems and fears with me. I guess I can give you some advice.

To begin with, you told me you didn’t have enough time to prepare for so many tests. If I were in your shoes I would try to talk to your teachers who I am sure will understand you very well and may really help you . Also, I reckon you should make up a schedule to spend your time more efficiently. I am pretty sure it will work. So don’t worry! You’ll be fine.

Then, you told me you needed to help your mother do all the house chores because she was very tired after work and you also had to take some tutorial classes after-school every week. I know it is tiresome. Why don’t you ask your mother to find a housemate to help her? This way, you would devote more time to study. And another thing, why not reduce your time for tutorial classes and study hard at home on your own. I am sure you can do it.

And then, I know you are worried about your examinations and you are very tired. No matter how hard you have to work I would advise you to relax sometime. For example, you can listen to quiet music or do some exercise, walk or play some board games. These are likely to relieve your anxiety.

Besides, I’m sad to know that your parents think you are lazy and irresponsible. Talk to them. You should let your parents know about your problems and then they will understand you very well and support you.

So, don’t worry! There should always be a way out!

I hope this advice will be useful. Please write to me again to tell how things are going on or if you need any more help.

Regards, Jacky
