Hi Lucia

How are you? It was so nice to meet you last week in Sydney at the sales meeting. How was the rest of your trip? Did you see any kangaroos? I hope you got home to Mexico City OK.

Anyway, I have the documents about the new Berlin offices. We're going to be open in three months. I moved here from London just last week. They are very nice offices, and the location is perfect. There are lots of restaurants, cafés and banks in the area. There's also public transport; we are next to an U-Bahn (that is the name for the metro here). Maybe you can come and see them one day? I would love to show you Berlin, especially in the winter. You said you have never seen snow – you will see lots here!

Here's a photo of you and me at the restaurant in Sydney. That was a very fun night! Remember the singing Englishman? Crazy! Please send me any other photos you have of that night. Good memories.

Please give me your email address and I will send you the documents.

Bye for now

I make plan with friend by using social net worlk apps like Facebook Messenger. Those app really convenient and effective, I can create a group and show diffirent ideas that we don't need meeting in person.

I usually make connect by Wp with my friends.Because of the most popular way of the make connection all the world.

I usually use phone calls or WhatsApp messages to arrange a meeting with friends.

I usually call or send messages to them.

I usually use phone calls to make plans with friends, and sometimes I use WhatsApp.

I usually make plans with my friends by WhatsApp because is a commun way to communicate all of us.
I have to admit that isn't so easy as I said. We've planned a meeting for weeks, and there's someone who is always busy, but in the past and by experience I know, in fact, that we always see eachother and spend a really nice day.
Then, we send the pictures of that day at the same group we've made to plan and to go out.

I usually make plans with my friends by mobile phone or watsap.

I don't make plans with friends, because I don't have friends

I use mobile phone, messenger and email for communicating to my friends. I also use Zoom apps for taking my online class. I take exam by google form.

I make plans with my friends generally by phone or chat.
