V. A model letter
How are you? I’m sorry I haven’t written for so long, but I was very busy getting ready to come to England for my summer course.
I arrived last week, and I’m really enjoying myself, because the school is so well organised and friendly. The teachers are encouraging and the lessons are great fun! I also really like my classmates, who are from all over the world, and it’s very interesting learning about their countries.
Unfortunately, not everything is good. The worst thing is that the classrooms are very cramped and dark, so they’re rather depressing. The chairs are very uncomfortable, too! It doesn’t matter, though, because I enjoy studying new things and being in a foreign country.
That’s about all from me. What about you? I can’t wait to hear what you’ve been doing recently, so write as soon as possible!
