You have received a letter from your English-speaking pen friend Mark who writes:
…Guess what! All my friends are going to ‘Waterland’ next week and I can’t swim! What shall I do? If I go with my friends, they will be teasing me all the time. I have wanted to learn to swim for a long time but I feel embarrassed to start learning at my age. What would you advise me to do? Is it difficult to learn how to swim? How many lessons will I need?
Well, I’d better go now as my mum’s calling me for dinner.
Write back to Mark.
In your letter
— answer his questions
— ask 3 questions about his favourite sports
Write 100 — 140 words.
Remember the rules of letter writing.
Thanks for your letter. It was great to hear from you again! Please give my best regards to your parents.
Well, I think you shouldn’t feel embarrassed. I guess there are lots of attractions in ‘Waterland’ like water slides or water games so nobody will notice that you can’t swim. You should definitely go there and have fun!
Yet I would start learning to swim, if 1 were you. It isn’t very difficult so you’ll need five or six lessons. Swimming is my favourite sport because it’s a good exercise for the whole body so you’ll always stay in shape.
And what about you? What sports do you enjoy? Have you got any time for sports? Have you ever tried any extreme sports?
Well, I’d better go now as I have to do the shopping. Write soon!
All the best,
