    Default An informal letter

    I am kindly asking you to check it.


    Dear Carlo
    Thanks a lot for your letter. You asked me about the job that I did last summer. Iíll try to give you a brief account of how it looked like.
    I was looking to start this job with excitement. I am myself very keen on adventure sports as well as you. However, not everything was that perfect. For example, on the first day there was so much paperwork to do I didnít have a chance to do anything else. What is more, I didnít do any sports until the week after. I did help other people though. Explaining things to holidaymakers of different nationalities was really enjoyable and rewarding. I could feel my English improving! What I also found to be an valuable experience was organising a presentation for important English visitors. It wasnít until the end of third week that I managed to go canoeing, which was a little bit too late in my opinion.
    I am not sure whether I should recommend this job to you. There were some definite flaws, but even though I must admit I quite enjoyed it. Iíd say give it a try yourself and see how you like it.

    [I'm not an English teacher]
    (Although I have enough knowledge to correct you in the first part small part)
    "Dear Carlo" should be "Dear Carlos:". That is if his name is really "Carlos" and not "Carlo".
    I was in a rush to just correct that part, but hopefully one of the kind Experts will help you.
