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!

Gregor

It is rare to make a gathering plan by mail. Actually we often plan to meet directly by social media chat box or phone call. That sounds like great to use mails than social as formal invitation but in my country, social media and phone calling are using as common channels.

Generally I make plans with friends by phone or by messages using social networks, I don’t use emails to make plans with friends, I usually use it for study or at work. I think it’s a bit cold making plans with friends using emails.

Thanks for the lesson.
Great site!!
