說明原因: 1). I am chosen to represent our school to take part in the English debate competition with an America high school, which, you know, is of great importance to me, for I have always been dreaming to have a chance like this to improve my spoken English. As a result, I have no choice but to say sorry to you.
2).The reason is that my younger brother broke his leg the other day and my parents are on a business trip now. As a result, I have no choice but to take care of him.
另約時間1).Shall we put it off till this Sunday morning? We can go earlier so that we will have more time to read and chose books.
2). Shall we put it off till this Sunday morning? We can set out earlier so that we will have plenty of time to read and select books, if it is convenient for you.

I’m sorry to say that I cannot go to the bookstore with you on Friday afternoon. I have just found that I have to attend an important class meeting that afternoon. I hope the change won’t cause you too much trouble.
Shall we go on Saturday morning? We can set out early so that we’ll have more time to read and select books. If it’s convenient for you, let’s meet at 8:30 outside the school gate. If not, let me know what time suits you best. I should be available any time after school next week.
Looking forward to your early reply.
I’m sorry to say that I might have no choice but to break my promise of going to the book store with you. I have just been informed that our class is going to hold an important meeting on Saturday afternoon---exactly the time we shall meet. What an awful coincidence! I feel so sorry about it.
Now that I’m not able to be present on time, shall we choose another time? I’ll be available any time after the meeting. Will Sunday morning suits your convenience? If so, we can meet then and I’m sure we will have a good time together.
I make an apology again for not going to the book store with you as promised. I sincerely wish we can have fun next time.

五、Dear Mr. Morgan,
I’m writing to apologize for not being able to climb the mountain with you this weekend.
My classmates and I have been expecting to go climbing with you so that we can get close to nature and relax ourselves as well. However, something unexpected occurred, which made it impossible for me to join in the activity. My grandfather, who is in his 70s, fell on the ground suddenly while having a shower yesterday. He was so seriously injured that he was sent to hospital at once. Now he is receiving treatment there and I must look after him. That’s why I can’t go with you.
Once again, sorry for not being able to accompany you. I sincerely hope that you will have a good time.
