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

Normally, I didn't use email to make the plans with my friend, just we use group messenger for sharing information and if we have changes plan, we use via phone.

No, I don't make plans with my friends by email. I make them by What's App. I use email to make requests like when I write to my teachers.

Hello I have three chat groups in whatsapp, the first group is made up of all my family, the second is with my friends from the University with whom I play soccer every Thursday and the last group I talk about what we are going to do the weekend with my friends.
