Coherence & Cohesion
While the letter is structured quite well, the logical structure could be improved by ensuring that each paragraph consistently follows a smooth and logical flow. Some paragraphs could benefit from clearer topic sentences and more cohesive devices such as referencing words, substitutions, or conjunctions for smoother transitions between ideas.
Task Achievement
To improve task response, aim to provide a more detailed explanation of how the event (in this case, the baby's birth) will affect your life. Although you've touched on it, expanding on the personal significance can deepen the reader's understanding and engagement with the content.
Task Achievement
Consider adding a few more connective phrases to enhance the letter's cohesion. This could involve elaborating slightly more on your feelings, the preparation for parenting, or details about the baby shower to invite further conversation from your friend.
