I have an exam in the next year and I will have an exercise "letter writing". So, I prepare. today I have wrote this letter, please check it.
You have 20 minutes to do this task.
You have received a letter from your friend who needs your advice. He writes:
...And now I have a rather big sum of money. I don't want to waste it on useless things. So, I need your advice.
I've been dreaming of two things for a long time: a good computer, maybe a notebook, or a trip to a foreign country. The problem is I like both ideas and I cannot make up my mind.
What would you do if you were me?
Thanks for your letter. It was great to hear from you. In your letter you ask my advice. So, I think it is very difficult choice, therefore I would compare them.
First of all a computer is very important thing in our life. Everything concerns with it. You can find any information, chat with friends. Moreover, computer skills are very useful for job placement. But a trip into a foreign country is so good opportunity to improve your language and knowledges about this country. Also, you can find new friends. Certainly, you also will be a little bit closer to the culture. So, as you know, I am crazy about countries and languages, therefore I would prefer the second one. I really find it extremely intresting.
I hope my letter will be helpful for you and you will chose what you want. Eventually, I want to ask you questions: What you have chosen and why? Tell me more about it. I am interested.
*Compare your friend's two choices and explain which one you think he should make. Use specific and details to support your choice.
** Write 100-150 words.
Please read it attentively and show my mistakes. Maybe I need to expand my vocabluary, because the letter seems poor or improve my grammar. Maybe the letter seems unnatural. Show me each strange moment at the text.
I will be grateful if you help me with this exercise. I think I will put others my letters here, because I want to have a very good result.
