You havе rеcеivеd a lеttеr from your English-speaking pen-friend Sophie who writes:
… Last week our science teacher took my class on a school trip to the Natural History Museum in Washington D.C. It was fantastic! Where do your teachers take you on school trips? How often do you go? What school trip was the most memorable and why?
By the way, my parrot has learned to say “Good morning!” every time the alarm clock goes off! It took me quite a while to teach it!

Thanks for your letter. I'm sorry I couldn't answer you earlier, I had to prepare for an exam.
It is great to hear you loved your trip, especially since I am a little into natural history myself. In my school most teachers do not take us anywhere, except for my literature teacher who takes us to to theatres sometimes, but I never join since this is not obligatory and I have stuff to do. So, obviously, I can't call any of those trips memorable.
You seem to have done a great job teaching your parrot to talk. What kind of parrot is it? What is its name? What else can it say?
I'm sorry, but I have to leave now, it's time for me to walk my dog.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
