I was delighted to receive your letter. I want to tell you about my best friend.
I have several friends. But the best among them is Olga. She’s younger than me. Olga is very funny and interesting person. With Olga, you can talk on various topics.
I met Olga met this summer when I was resting in the camp, she was sharing the room with me. When I saw her for the first time I did not like. After I talked to her, I found out she was my soul mate. We like the same music and we also do the same sport. I really want to see her again, but I can’t because she lives far away from me. But she and I chat on the Internet.
I am interested in your plans for the weekend. Where are you going to spend it? Who with? What are you going to do? Tell me more about your plans.
I must go now, my mother is waiting for me.
All the best,

It’s a great pleasure to recieve a letter from you. I’m sorry I haven’t written for a long time, I was busy with preparation for exams.
You know, I can’t say that I have some definite duties but I try to help my parents as much as possible. As for me, I hate doing the dishes but unfortunately do it from time to time. However, I like to do my room, it makes me feel cheerful. I’m sure that we should help parents. They support us whatever we start doing and helping is the least we can do for them.
What a great news! I adore kittens they’re so cute. What is the name of your, have you already desided it? Is it a girl or a boy? Who presented you with such a wonderful gift?
Now I should go. Look forward to your answer.

Thanks for your letter. You know I live in a big family, so I have to share a room with a brother or stay with a sister in the evening when our parents have a chance to go to the theatre or any other place. I should say it's very cool to have somebody you can take care of or share your interests. My brother Tom and me have the same hobby of collecting small chocolates. When we have more than thirty we make a kind of party and eat them all. We sometimes give one or two to my sister. She always looks forward to such occasions.
Now tell me about that sports club. How can you train there? What workings hours does it have? Can you have a personal tutor there?
Hope to hear from you soon!

Thank you for your letter. My congratulations to your grandmother on her birthday!
It is wonderful that your family is very friendly! As for me, we also try to keep family traditions. So we usually celebrate our birth- days. We always prepare something unusual and surprising for our parents' birthdays. For example, last year my brother and I made a fantastic cake for our mother's birthday.
She was very happy! Soon we'll celebrate our aunt's birthday and we've already begun to prepare for it. As it will be in May, we want to plant beautiful flowers in her garden. It'll be our surprise!
Write back soon!

I want to tell you about my best friend.
I have several friends at school. But the best among them is Anton, who is my class fellow.
He is of my age. But he is much taller than I in size. Anton has a very cheerful nature. I've known him for two years but have never seen him angry. His face is always smiling. Even if any boy abuses him, Anton never loses his temper.
At school he sits on the same bench with me. We are together for the greater part of the day. Together we learn and play together. Other boys envy our friendship. But we do not mind it.
Anton is very good at his lessons. He never neglects his studies. He never gives the teacher a chance to complaint. Mathematics is his weak subject. But Anton is doing his best to make up his weakness.
My friend is active and smart. He is good at both studies and games. Anton never tells a lie. He helps his parents in the house He loves hard work and honest labor.
All his qualities have attracted me. I cannot find a more ideal friend than Anton.

It’s a great pleasure to receive a letter from you. Sorry I haven’t written for a long time, but I was busy with preparation for exams.
As for me, I must clean my room regulary and also help parents when they’re tired. If I need to cook something, I’d like to make scrambled eggs or some salad. You know, I do. I’m absolutely sure that every boy should be able to take care of himself, therefore he must be able to do housework.
That’s great! What place have you chosen? Is your teacher going to accompany you? Do you have all necessary things for a hike?
Well, I’d better go. I promised my sister to help with her homework.
Hope to hear from you soon.

Thanks a lot for your letter. Let me tell you something about myself. I am just fourteen years old. My favourite languages are English and Russian. My family is not very large. In the evenings i go out for a walk.
In my country spring has already set. It is quite warm and really sunny all days long. Some days ago my friend advised me to read a very interesting book. I did it and I would like you to know the author of the book.
With love to you,

I want to write you about my future career.
I am a school-leaver and this year I am finishing school. When you leave school, you understand that the time to choose your future profession has come. It is not an easy task to choose the right job for you.
There are a lot of different professions and it is really hard to choose the one, which would be interesting for you and will help you earn your living. Generally, I think that choosing the right job is the main question not only for a school-leaver, but also for all the family.
I would like to become a teacher.
In my opinion, to be a teacher is not an easy task because you need not only to love children, but you also should have an ability to explain things clearly, know your subject profoundly and be an all around person. Though this is not the easiest task, I am sure that I have got almost all necessary qualities to become a really good teacher.
Nowadays it is very important to know a foreign language, especially English. More and more people need qualified teachers to teach them today. I understand that this profession is greatly demanded and that is why I would like to become an English teacher. This year I am going to enter the department of foreign languages at the local University.
I wait for the letter with impatience.
