You have received a letter from your New Zealand pen-friend Tom who writes:
...Last month our class went to Washington to visit the National Museum of American History. It was my first visit there and it was fun! How often do you go to museums with your class, if at all? Which museum is your favourite or what museum would you like to visit? Why do you think people should go there?
This summer we plan to go hiking with my parents...
Write a letter to Tom. In your letter answer his questions, ask 3 questions about his summer plans. Write 100—140 words. Remember the rules of letter writing. You have 20 minutes to do this task.
Thank you for your letter. I'm sorry for not writing you for so long. I was busy doing a school project.
I'm glad about your visit to the musuem! Speaking of me, when I was little, my class used to go to the museum each week and it was very interesting. In general, I think that museums are very important for cultural education, but it shouldn’t be given as an obligatory thing. Now we go to the museums twice a year and our teacher gave us possibility to choose which museum we want to visit. My favorite is the museum of photography.
Anyway, you've mentioned holidays. Do you go hiking for the first time? What do your parents think about the sport? Don't you think that it's too dangerous?
I've got to go as my brother asked me to help him with his homework.
Write back soon.
