    informal email, would you correct it please ?

    Hello everybody!! I'm a new member and I am just about to take the FCE and I have many problems with the writing part, so I would like to ask you help! Would you read this informal email and correct it please ? Thank you!


    This is the task:

    You recently received an email from your English-speaking friend, Pat, inviting you to stay and asking you to a special party.



    Hi Pat,

    It was great to hear from you. Iím so excited about spending time with you during the summer that I can't wait anymore.

    July is perfect! My parents will be in Italy enjoying a second honney moon so itís great Iíll have the opportunity to be there with you while theyíre out of the country.

    About Timís birthday, Iíve been thinking what kind of present I can give him, and I want your opinion so what do you think about giving him a t-shirt from my country?

    By the way, sorry but I wonít be able to go camping with you, because I am alergic and the doctors advice me that I shouldnít do things like that.
    And finally but not less important, Iíd really like to know if we can go to a music concert which will be while I am there.

    Iím looking forward to seeing you soon.

    Best wishes,

    Mary

    Hi Pat,

    It was great to hear from you. I’m so excited about spending time with you during the summer thatand I can't wait. anymore.

    July is perfect! My parents will be in Italy enjoying a second honeymoon so it’s great. I’ll have the opportunity to be there with you while they’re out of the country.

    About Tim’s birthday, I’ve been thinking what kind of present I can give him, and I want your opinion so what do you think about giving him a t-shirt from my country?

    By the way, sorry, but I won’t be able to go camping with you, because I am alergic (alergic to what?) and the doctors advice have advised me that I shouldn’t do things like that.
    And finally, but not less important, I’d really like to know if we can go to a music concert which will be if there are any while I am there.

    I’m looking forward to seeing you soon.

    Best wishes,

    Mary
