    Default Informal letter - pls. check

    Question
    You have received the following email from your English penfriend.

    >It's a really brave step to take a year out of >college to come and spend 6 months in the >UK! What are you planning to do with your >time? Find a job? Learn some new skills? >Write back and give me more details of your >plans so I can do my best to help you have a >good time...

    Write your letter of reply to your penfriend (around 120-180 words).



    Dear John,


    Many thanks for your letter – it was really nice to hear from you again.

    My mum is worried a little bit about my decision to stay so long time in your country. I’ve ever never been abroad before on my own. I’m coming in one month exactly and I’m really happy, indeed!


    Firstly, I’d like to improve my English in an intensive language course for about first three months. I’m intending to find a cheap accomodation near to my school. I know it’s a lot to ask but could you recommend the language school?


    Actually, I need earn some money for my travelling one month at the end of my stay. I’m good at computers. May I ask for one more favour, could you look in the local paper to see which companies want part-time staff?


    Lastly, as you know I’m keen on climbing, so could you help me to choose right places for outdoor and indoor climbing. I’d be really grateful.

    That’s all for now. Thanks for your help in advance. I’m looking forward to hearing from you soon.


    All the best,


    Daniella
