I’m sorry I haven’t written so long. I was very busy last
month but now school is over and I can write a letter to you. Things are going
well for me. I’m learning a lot in my French class and I feel better about
speaking French now. Last night I think I even spoke French when I was
sleeping! But I still have some problems, you know.
In your last letter you asked me to write a few words about
my hobbies. Well, I’m fond of reading. It’s very exciting. I’ve got a very good
collection of books at home and I’m really proud of it. I can’t say my
collection is thematic. I’ve got different books: fiction and historical
novels. I’ve got many books about animals and birds. I also have books which
can tell you about different countries and lands. I think many people can say
that their hobby is reading and I am sure it is easy to explain why. We learn
when we read books.
Whatever you do, wherever you go, you’ll always need a true
friend and a good teacher. This friend and the teacher for you is the book.
I’ve already read many books. Some of them are very interesting indeed; some
are boring. Some of them are easy to read, and some are difficult to
understand. But I usually read all of them up to the end. As I have already
said my collection of books at home is good, but I often go to the library and
take books to read there. My favorite books are about animals.
Now I really think I’m finishing. Sorry for such a long
Remember me to your parents

stamp of Elvis Presley. He was a famous rock-n-roll singer. We call him "The
King” of rock-n-roll! I keep my stamps on the walls of my room. My father
travels a lot and sometimes he brings stamps to me. This summer he is going to
