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 in/for such a 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!excited
Firstly, I’d like to improve my English by taking an intensive language course during the first three months. I’m intending to find cheap accommodation near to my school. I know it’s a lot to ask but could you recommend a language school?
Actually, I need to earn some money for my month of travelling 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 good 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,
