Reading text

Hi Samia,

Just a quick email to say that sounds like a great idea. Saturday is better for me because I'm meeting my parents on Sunday. So if that's still good for you, why don't you come here? Then you can see the new flat and all the work we've done on the kitchen since we moved in. We can eat at home and then go for a walk in the afternoon. It's going to be so good to catch up finally. I want to hear all about your new job!

Our address is 52 Charles Road, but it's a bit difficult to find because the house numbers are really strange here. If you turn left at the post office and keep going past the big white house on Charles Road, there's a small side street behind it with the houses 50–56 in. Don't ask me why the side street doesn't have a different name! But call me if you get lost and I'll come and get you.

Let me know if there's anything you do/don't like to eat. Really looking forward to seeing you!

See you soon!

Basically, I don’t use to make any plans with friends. I prefer phone call or what's app to make any plans. I think It's a better way than e-mail. As a student I use e-mail send educational paper or any important documents to teachers or any others.
yes me too , I never tell any plans when we talk each other on facing, because you need to consider which is best plan or time to tell them ,and make appointment for time . I don't want to waste time to waiting people.

I don't use e-mail now, but I used to use it with my friends who don't use LINE. I usually use LINE when I make plans with my friends. With it, I can connect conversations at a good tempo. Since the mail doesn't have the read mark, I'm worried whether it is transmitted to my friends. Also, I sometimes talk on the phone when they and I have time to spare.

I’m wakened by this imagination that plan a date with my friends. But then I remember the situation: covid 19! I can get quiet annoyed with the news of Coronavirus.

I always use LINE When I make plans with my friends. I decide at what time and where to meet, also what you're going to eat as well. At that time, send photos of places and restaurants I want to hang out and decide. LINE is extremely well because I can send photos and a map so I am easy to make plans. From these kids of reasons, LINE is easier to use for me than other ways.

I use LINE to make plans with friends, because we can send menus of a restaurant where we will go or share the map. And also it can remind me the plan. It is perfect application for me who is forgettable.
