PET practice

This is part of a letter you received from an English friend.

I was given some money for my birthday but
I can't decide whether to save it or not.
Are you good at saving money or do you
spend it immediately? Which do you think
is best'

Now write a letter in about 100 words, answering your friend's questions.

Dear Michael,

How is it going? Thank you very much for your letter. I hope that you and your family are well. You asked me about money.
When my grandfather gave me money for my birthday I opened a bank account because I don't have a safe place to keep the money.
If I were you I 'd put the money in a bank or in a safe place in your bedroom and you shoudn't spend it. I think that saving money in a bank account is better than keeping the money in you bedroom.
Now I 'm going to study for a test
Write back soon and tell me all your news.

Dear Jack,

How's it going? Thank you very much for your letter. I hope that you and your family are well.
In the summer I like wearing shorts and a T-shirt because the weather is sunny and hot.
In winter I like wearing a T-shirt with a jacket, blue trousers and tennis shoes.
In Uruguay in general the weather is very cold.
I rarely go to buy clothes in the shopping centre with my mother. I don't enjoy that.
My brother enjoys buying clothes with my mother.

Dear teacher,

I would like to go to the next class but I can't because I'm going to go to my grandma's house because it's her birthday. When the class finishes I'll phone yu and ask for homework.




Dear Peter,

How's it going?! Thank you for your letter. I received it yesterday. Sorry but I couldn't answer earlier because I was studying for a test. (Imagine that!).
I study History, Biology, Matchs, etc. but I don't like these subjects because for me they are difficult.
My favourite subjects are Geography and I also enjoy Gym.
I enjoy Geography because I learn how the world is, how many people are there, etc., and I enjoy Gym because I don`t have to study. Sometimes I can play football with my friends at high school (Imagine that!).

Write back soon,



Dear Michael,

How's it going? Thank you for your e-mail. I received it last week but I couldn't answer before because I stayed in a hotel.
My favourite TV programmes are Discovery Channel and Sport Centre.
I like watching Discovery Channel because there I learn a lot about animals and I like wataching Sport Centre because it's interesting, it comments about football players, basksetball players, mataches, etc.
Next week I'm going to watch Fox Sport because it's more interesting than Sport Centre.
I have to stop because I'm going shopping with my family now.

Write soon,

PET practice.

This is part of a letter you received from some English friends.
...'For our next holiday, we want to visit your country. Is it best to spend our time in a city or in the countryside? Which would you recommend and why?

Write a letter, answering your friends' questions.
Write your answer in about 100 words.

Dear Michael,

How is it going? Thank you for your last letter.

If I were you I would spend time in a city because you will have a lot of things to do, for example you will go to the shopping centre because you can go bowling and watch a film there.
You will go to the beach too. There you can play football, volleyball, swim in the ocean, etc. (Imagine that!)

If you are interested in paintings you can go to art museums or historic museums.
Now I'm going to go to my grandma's house.
Write back soon,

THEATRE PLAY: Stonehenge

Dear Gonzalo,

How is it going? I'm going to tell you about the play 'Stonhenge'. Imagine I'm Scott.
In the past I had to recover my girlfriend's memory. If she didn't recover her memory I couldn't come back to the present.

My uncle Tim gave me a machine called 'The time surfer' to travel on time. When I arrived to Stonehenge I fought with Igordin and Dawldrin when the fight finished they helped me because they thought I was their Master. I went to find my girlfriend Kate but Kate went to talk with Igordin. When they saw Kate thought that I had transformed into a woman.

Finally I found Kate and Igordin and Kate recovered her memory and then we returned to the present.
Bye bye,

dear sir/madam,

I am looking for sponsorship for the next olympic games.

I am a good swimmer. I have one of the best records in the world. I practise swimming three hours per day so I need a sponsor to help me.

I need to raise one million pounds to travel and training. If I win, I will donate the money to hospitals and churches because they need a lot of things. For example the hospital needs new technology and churches need to help poor people.

I would be very grateful for any sponsorship you could offer me

Your faithfully,

Rodrigo Gobertti
