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

When I want to make plans with my friends, firstly I ask them what they want to do and where they want to go by using application. Secondly I collect information with my friends, but sometimes some friends don't look it up and force me to do it. To be honest, I am tired such an situation, but It is fun for me because they are my friends. Last, I decide a convenient day for every one. These are my ways making plans with friends. Of course, it take for a long time to do. But I really like thinking about spending time with my friends.

I think it depends on our situation. I usually make plans with my friends by calling or messaging each other. But, I usually prefer watsup or telegram for messaging than the email. That is because that we usually check our watsup or other messangers sooner than emails. Indeed, if I am looking forward to make a plan to meet my students or colleagues about their/ our projects I usually plan or set by email. For the main reason, email is more formal than messangers, and also I prefer to avoid from making call or messaging with my students. Regards, Tayyebi

Hello. When I always make a plan with my friends,first I decide what I want to do or where I want to go.In the case of I don't have something I want to do or to go at that time,I don't make a plan. When I make a plan,I decide three things. First,who to go with.I think that it is most important point. Second,meeting time.but I often fails to come on time. Third,meeting place.but it is about the same place. and I always make a plan by LINE.It is so useful!
