Tips

  2. The email can have three main paragraphs:
    • the reason for writing (= to say thank you)
    • the main point (= more details or examples)
    • a wish or offer for the future.
  3. Use emojis (e.g. smiley) or emoticons (e.g. :) ) to show you're joking.
  4. You can say See you soon / See you next year if you hope to meet again.
  5. Use a closing phrase like Keep in touch, Write soon, Speak soon or Take care.

Would you like to stay with a host family in a new country?
Yes, of course. I love to stay with a host family in a new country if I get opportunity. Because I can learn their custom and culture, habits and language. I can also taste their traditional foods. I can request to one of their family member to accompany when I visit the historical places and ask what I want to know. I am hoping for getting that chance sooner.

Hi Valentina,

Write soon,
