(3) Dear …
(4) Thanks for your letter. It’s nice to hear from you again. I enjoyed your story about the trip to Suzdal with your class.
(5) You’ve asked me about my free time. Last Sunday I went to Alton Towers with my parents and my younger brother. Alton Towers is a theme park with a lot of rides and other amusements. You can also call it a funfair. I hate theme parks. I prefer going for a walk in the country to going to a theme park. For a start, theme parks are very expensive. Another thing is that the food in theme parks is awful! Last but not least, I don’t think theme parks are very safe.

(6) Have you ever been to a theme park, or a funfair? Are there many theme parks in your region? What do you think about theme parks?
(7) Looking forward to your letter.
(8) Bye,

(3) Уважаемый …
(4) Спасибо за Ваше письмо. Приятно услышать вас снова. Я наслаждался вашей историей о поездке в Суздаль с классом.
(5) Вы спросили меня о моем свободном времени. В минувшее воскресенье я ездил в Олтон Тауэрз с моими родителями и младшим братом. Олтон Тауэрз — тематический парк со множеством аттракционов и других развлечений. Можно также назвать это ярмарка с аттракционами. Я ненавижу тематические парки. Я предпочитаю погулять в деревне, чем поехать в тематический парк. Для начала, тематические парки являются очень дорогими. Следующее это то, что еда в тематических парках ужасна! И последнее, но не менее важное, я не думаю, что тематические парки очень безопасны.
(6) Вы когда-нибудь были в тематических парках или парках развлечений? В вашем регионе много тематических парков? Что вы думаете о тематических парках?
(7) С нетерпением ждем вашего письма.
(8) До свидания,
(9) Ричард

Dear Jack (приветствие должно быть на отдельной строке),

Thanks a lot for your letter (наличие благодарности – один из критериев ответного письма). I am glad that you’ve been admitted by the university. I hope you will enjoy your studies there. 

After school I am planning to go to medical college. Our graduation party will be awesome. The official part will be held at our school, and then we will have a party in an entertaining club with a large pool in the backyard. I am going to wear a tailor-made suit. I can’t wait to show you some nice photos (в основной части есть ответы на все поставленные вопросы). 

It’s great to hear about your sister’s new challenge. Is she enjoying swimming? Does she take group or private lessons? How often does she take classes? (заданы 3 вопроса по теме)

Well, I’d better go now as I have to do my homework. Hope to hear from you soon (завершающая фраза также должна быть на отдельной строке)

Yours,    (форма прощания должна соответствовать неформальному стилю письма)

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

     …Have you ever thought what you are going to do in the future? As for me, I really don’t know what career to choose although my parents say it’s time I made a choice. What kind of job would you prefer to do? Have you asked your parents for advice? Would you like to follow in their footsteps? Anyway, we’ve got some time. Let me know what you think about it. Well, it’s time for me to play with my brother ….

Write back to Jack. In your letter:

– answer his questions

– ask 3 questions about his hobbies and leisure activities

Dear Jack,

Thank you for your letter. I was glad to receive it from you again.

You have written about the career choice. Well, I would prefer doing some interesting and active job because I don’t want to sit in an office all day long. I’ve asked my parents for advice. They recommended me to become a marketing or tourism specialist. As for your last question, my mom doesn’t work and my dad is an oriential studies specialist. I don’t want to follow his footsteps. If I do, I will have to learn an Asian language. It’s really hard.

I’m very curious about your hobbies and leisure activities. What do you usually do in your spare time? What are your hobbies? Is spending time with your brother one of your leisure activities?

Sorry, I have to go now. Write back son.

Best wishes,

You have received a letter from your English speaking pen friend Maggie, who writes:

…We’re writing an essay in class about TV. I wanted to ask your opinion about some things. What’s your favourite TV programme and why do you like it? Is there anything you dislike about TV? What kinds of programmes would you like to see more of? 

Oh, by the way, we have a school dance coming up that I’m excited about…

 

Dear Maggie,

Thank you for your letter. I was glad to receive it from you again.

You have asked about TV. Well, my favorite TV program is “Animal planet”, because I like finding out interesting facts about different creatures. In my opinion, the main disadvantage of TV is that it takes a lot of free time and you don’t even notice it. As for your last question, I would like to see more programmes about nature because I’m very interested in it.

Great news about the coming school dance! Are you ready for it? Have you got the dance partner? Do you dance well?

Sorry, I have to go now. Wright back soon.

You have received a letter from your English speaking pen friend Mike, who writes:

…We’re doing a report in my science class about air pollution. I wanted to ask you a few things about it. What causes of air pollution do you have in your country? Does it affect people’s health, and if so, how? What’s the best way to fight air pollution?

Some happier news is that my class is going on a school trip next week …

 

Dear Mike,

Thank you for your letter. I was glad to receive it from you again.

You have written about air pollution. Well, different factories and means of transport cause air pollution in my country. It affects people’s health in a very negative way: people start coughing and lung diseases are increasing from year to year. As for your last question, the best way to fight air pollution is to grow forests and use other eco-friendly means of transport.

Great news about the school trip! Are you excited? Where are you going to spend your trip? How long it will be?

Sorry I have to go now. Write back soon.

You have received a letter from your English speaking pen friend Vicky, who writes:

…I’m struggling with my German lessons and was wondering if you had any language-learning tips. What’s the best way to improve vocabulary? What do you find most difficult when learning a language? Is it a good 

idea to visit the country to learn the language and why (or why not)? 

Oh, and I forgot to tell you in my last letter – we picked some 
vegetables from our garden finally… 

 

Dear Vicky,

Thank you for your letter. I was glad to receive it from you again.

You have asked about language- learning tips. Well, the best way to improve your vocabulary is to learn ten words per day and then use them in the context. The most difficult thing in learning a language for me is speaking. I always forget basic words or confuse them while speaking because I feel very nervous. As for your last question, it is a great idea to visit the country to learn the language. This will immerse you into the language environment and will make the learning process faster and easier for you.

Good news about picking some vegetables from the garden! Are you happy that you have grown and picked them by yourself? How long did it take to pick them all? Do they taste good?

Sorry, I have to go now. Write back soon.

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

…I’ve started jogging in the mornings before school. I’ve been waking up early to do it, but I love it. I wanted to ask you about what people do for fitness in your country. What places are there in your town that can help you keep fit? How often do you think people should work out during the week, and why? What’s one way you can make a workout enjoyable?

My most exciting news is that I’ve recently become head boy at my school…

Thank you for your letter. I was glad to receive it from you again.

You have written about fitness in our town. Well, most people in our country usually do such sports as swimming, cycling or jogging, just like you. There are a lot of gyms and sport yards for sportsmen. Also, we have a huge park. In my opinion, people should work out nearly three times a week, because regular trainings are more beneficial. To make my workout enjoyable I usually listen to music while training. It helps me not to get tired untimely and gives me extra energy.

Congratulations on becoming a head boy! Do you enjoy being in such a status? Why did your classmates elect you? What are your duties?

I`m looking forward to your answer. Keep in touch.

Best wishes,

Admin

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

…I’m doing a report on the media in one of my classes. I was wondering about your experience with the media. Where do you get your news? How often do you read, watch or listen to the news? What’s your opinion about it?

In other news, my aunt and uncle are visiting in two weeks …

 

Dear Nicole,

Thank you for your letter. I was glad to receive it from you again.

You have written about the media. Well, usually I get news from different social platforms, like Facebook and Twitter. I read the news practically everyday, because I’m very interested in what is happening in the world around me. As for your last question, I think that the media plays a huge role in people`s lives. I can`t even imagine the world without it.

Great news about your aunt and uncle`s arrival. Are you excited to see them soon? What are you going to do together? How often do they visit you?

Sorry, I have to go now. Write back soon.

You have received a letter from your English speaking pen friend Vivien…

… my old laptop has finally reached the end of its days! I’m going to buy a new one this weekend, and I wanted to ask your opinion about them. What is the most important thing you think about when you buy a new computer? What’s the most common thing you do on a computer? What do you dislike about computers, if anything?

By the way, I came first in my tennis tournament last week…

 

Dear Vivien,

Thank you for your letter. I was glad to receive it from you again.

You have written about the computers. Well, I guess that the most important thing when I buy a new computer is its functionality. I have to know what my new computer can do. Really, the most common thing I do on my computer is surfing the Internet. Also, I make my school presentations on it. As for your last question, the thing that I dislike about these devices is their price. Computers are extremely expensive nowadays.

Great news about your victory in the tennis tournament! How does it feel to be the winner? Was it hard to get the first place? Are you going to celebrate your victory?

Sorry, I have to go now. Write back soon.

Best wishes,

Admin

…When I think about leaving school it is clear I’m going to miss my school friends, classes and teachers very much. They’re so important to me. We seem to be very friendly and enthusiastic about participating in all the school events. What does school mean to you? Do you feel the same about it? Do you think you will miss school? Are you going to meet your school friends after you finish school?

I have lived in London most of my life but I’d really love to travel to other countries…

 

Dear Nicole,

Thank you for your letter. I was glad to receive it from you again.

You have written about school. Well, my school means a lot to me. It gave me good friends, education and much knowledge in different spheres of life. I love my school just the way you are. My school friends, teachers and classes very important to me too. As for your last question, I`m definitely going to meet my school friends after I finish secondary education, because I will miss everyone a lot.

I didn`t know that you love travelling to other countries! What countries would you like to visit the most? How many countries have you visited already? How often do you travel within a year?

Sorry, I have to go now. Write back soon.

Best wishes,

Admin

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

… I’m writing a report on means of transport in different countries. Could you help me a bit? How do people get around the city where you live? Do people travel across the country by plane or by train? Which means of transport do you prefer and why?

In other news. I’ve just bought a new music player …

 

Dear Stephen,

Thank you for your letter. I was glad to receive it from you again.

In your letter you have asked about means of transport. Well, in Moscow where I live people usually get around the city by cars, but sometimes they use underground because of traffic jams. Lots of people travel across the country by train. The route from Moscow to St. Petersburg is a good illustration of that. Also, as you know, Russia is the biggest country in the world, so if the destination is too far from the capital, people use planes. As for your last question, I prefer planes because they are fast and comfortable.

I know, that you don`t like to buy new electronic gadgets. Why did you buy the music player? Was it difficult to choose the right one? Do you like it?

Sorry, I have to go now. Write back soon.

Best wishes,

Admin
