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


…Last week our family went to the famous Niagara Falls. It was my first visit there and it was fun! We enjoyed the weather and the splashes of falling water on our faces. It reminded us of our last rafting trip. Where can you see beautiful water sights in Russia, if at all? Have you ever gone rafting? What do you think about extreme sports in general?

By the way, we are going to Greece this summer…


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

Dear Mary,

Thank you for your letter and I’m sorry, that I didn’t answer you earlier.

In Russia there are a lot of beautiful water sights. Firstly, of course, the Bakal lake. It’s the world’s famous lake, the biggest by it’s depth. The surroundings of it are very beautiful as well. I’ve never gone rafting, but I’d love to. I think it’s amazing sport, though it’s full of extreme. In fact I don’t completely support extreme sports, because I don’t like fear and I care a lot about my security. But it’s only my point of view.

Anyway, you've mentioned summer holidays. Where exactly are you going in Greece? For how long are you staying there? With whom are you going?

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

Write back soon.

Best wishes,
