You have received a letter from your English-speaking pen-friend Tom who writes:
... Last summer my parents and I went hiking to the mountains. We spent the whole week together and enjoyed it very much. How often do you take active holidays? Who do you think is the best company for you? What extreme sports would you like to try, if any, and why?
Last month our English class got an interesting project. We wrote a paper about interesting events in the past of our country ...
Write a letter to Tom. In your letter answer her questions, ask 3 questions about his project paper. 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 my time doing a school project.
I hope that you didn't have accidents while hiking. I don’t have much time on active holidays because I have a lot of homework. My family is more the stay-at-home sort, so I can’t spend the time with them somehow actively. My company is my friends. And our trips are usually very jolly. We are planning to try rafting this spring, because it implies a well coordinated team work, good reaction and nerves of steel.
Anyway, you've mentioned a project. Do you like writing about events of the past? What events did you choose for your project? Are they from the same historical period?
I've got to go as my father wants me to help him with his car.
Write back soon.
