Dear Mr. Yang,
With great pleasure I have received your invitation letter to have lunch on Saturday, June, 15.
I would be very happy to have the opportunity of discussing with you on the proposed visit to Beijing by your Minister of Education. I would be even happier if you could let me host the lunch for you at 12:00 on that day in Royal Hotel of Beijing. I am sure you will give me your consent since you are in Beijing and I should be the host.
I am looking forward to the pleasure of meeting you on Saturday at 12:00 in the lobby of Beijing Royal Hotel.
With my best regards,
Thank you for your invitation. It is kind of you. Having heard that Beijing food is good, I will be punctual for the appointments. I'm glad to take this opportunity to discuss with you about the education and cooperation between our two countries. I believe this is the academic cooperation and promote friendship between the two countries. This has far-reaching significance.
Firstly thank you for your gracious hospitality; I hope you can come to our luncheon. I have sent the invitation card to you. There are many educators there then. I think you are interested in making some friends. This also has important influence on the visit of the minister to Beijing. Looking forward to your attendance.
