You have received a letter from your English-speaking pen-friend Jane who writes:
... Yesterday my Mum asked me to help her about the house. We were very busy with cleaning up after the birthday party the whole morning. I got quite tired and even missed my fitness class. What are your family duties, if any? Is there anything you especially like or dislike about house work? Do you find helping your parents necessary, why or why not?
Oh, I have some great news! I got a lovely kitten for my birthday...
Write a letter to Jane. In your letter answer her questions, ask 3 questions about her kitten. 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 spent time helping my little brother with the homework.
It's nice that you decided to help your mother. In my family we also do house work like cleaning all together. In general, I don’t have anything against cleaning, but there're certain types of work that I just can’t stand, such as: cleaning dishes and doing vacuum cleaning. I think that helping parents is 100% necessary, because it’s a good opportunity to spend some time together.
Anyway, a kitten is a very nice present. What name did you give him? How does it look like? Is it a boy or a girl?
I've got to go as my brother asked me to help him with his homework.
Write back soon.
