Задание 39 № 1204

You have received a letter from your English-speaking pen-friend Bill who writes:


…I don’t think it will be a problem for me to choose a good job in the future as I’m really interested in foreign languages, cultures and countries and I hope I’ll work as a translator or teacher of foreign languages some day. Have you already decided on your career? What job are you going to choose? Why? What do your parents think about your choice?

I’ve lived in the USA my whole life but I’d really love to travel to other countries…


Write a letter to Bill. In your letter answer his questions, ask 3 questions about his plans for travelling. Write 100—140 words. Remember the rules of letter writing. You have 20 minutes to do this task.


St. Petersburg, Russia

November, 30

Dear Bill,

Thank you for your letter. I'm sorry for not writing you for so long. I was busy doing homework.

It’s great that you have already chosen your future job! Talking about me — I’m not sure yet. I like foreign languages, different cultures, but I don’t think a professor's job is something for me. I’d like to choose a job that'd give me a possibility of traveling, meeting new people, communicating with them in their language, because that’s what I’m interested in. As for my parents, they seem to be OK with it.

Anyway, you've mentioned travelling. Have you decided when you are going to go? What countries would you like to visit? Do you want to travel alone?

I've got to go as it's time for me to walk my dog.

Write back soon.

Best wishes,
