ACTIVITY 3

 

Dear Aunt Jean,

I ‘M JUST WRITING to tell you how much I APPRECIATE the money you sent me, and to tell you how I AM GETTING ON in my first term at university. Actually, I REALLY ENJOY/ AM REALLY ENJOYING myself! I STUDY quite hard as well, but at the moment I AM SPENDING a lot of time just making friends. I AM STILL STAYING with my friend Sue, and I AM LOOKING for somewhere of my own to live. Only a few of the first-year students LIVE in college here, and I SEEM to be spending a lot of time travelling backwards and forwards. I GO to lectures every morning, and most afternoons I STUDY in the library. In fact I AM WRITING this letter instead of an essay on ‘Hamlet’! I THINK I’ll buy some new clothes with the money you sent. Everything COSTS a lot here, and I AM SAVING to buy a winter coat. It GETS really cold here in the evenings. I KNOW lots of other students and generally speaking we HAVE a good time socially! I AM ALSO LEARNING to drive.

See you soon,

Katherine
