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!

To make plans with my friends, I use WhatsApp to coordinate with them what we are going to do.

I often make plan with friends by phone call or social network applications. I only use email for work.
Henceforth, I would suggest using email instead of phone or social network applications.

I don't use email, we schedule things in the days or in the free time by another application.

Why were you used " we've done ON the kitchen"instead of "IN"? Thank you!
