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

Hi Everyone! Definitely I prefer to communicate through WhatsApp or messenger. I only use email at work to communicate with customers. I wish you all a nice day!

I prefer to use a whatsap or phone calls, is better, because it's more practical, fast and easly to use.

Hello Hashim Ali,

We don't recommend books on LearnEnglish as we try to stay neutral as regards publishers and authors. What I can say is that every publisher has many graded readers available to learners of English which allow you to choose material at a good level for you. This means a level which is challenging but not discouraging. If you visit the websites of major ELT (English language teaching) publishers then you'll see many books to choose from, in both paper and electronic formats.

E-mail is a tool we use very little. Calling with the phone is a way we prefer mostly. E-mail isn't useful a method. Using the WhatsApp is easier. I prefer using message programmes to using e-mail. This is my opinion, too.
