Задание 39 № 2615

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


…My aunt lives in Arkansas and last week her house was ruined by a tornado. What do you think are the most horrible natural disasters? Which of them are typical of the place where you live? What can people do to protect themselves from them?

My history teacher got the annual award “Best teacher of the year”, I’m so happy for her!…


Write a letter to Mary. In your letter answer her questions, ask 3 questions about her history teacher. Write 100–140 words. Remember the rules of letter writing.


St. Petersburg, Russia

November, 30

Dear Mary,

Thank you for your letter. I'm sorry for not writing you for so long. I was preparing to the school performance.

I hope that your aunt’s house was insured. I think that the most destructive natural disaster is a volcanic eruption, because the hot lava kills all the natural resources and people’s houses. But here we don’t have any volcanoes, but there is another risk to suffer from fire – I’m talking about wildfires. Many Russian woods were destroyed by it during the last summer seasons. All we can do is not leaving trash in the forests and don’t smoke and leave unquenched butts there.

Anyway, you've mentioned your teacher. How old is your teacher? Is it her first award? Does it give any advantages?

I've got to go as my father is asking me to help him with his car.

Write back soon.

Best wishes,
