An Australian friend is coming to visit you, and it will be his/her birthday during the visit. Write a letter to your friend. In your letter.
- Say how you feel about the visit
- Suggest what you could do on his/her birthday
- Try to find out what your friend thinks of your idea
How are you? I hope the heat in Australia is not unbearable this year! I’m so excited that you are coming to stay with me in Barcelona for a month. I can’t wait to see you and spend time with you. As this is your first time we’ll have so many activities to do.
I know that your birthday is coming up soon and I have a couple of options on how we can celebrate it. We could go out for a fancy meal followed by a drink at a nice bar or we could go to a popular night club. I will be inviting some of my other friends that you met while we were in Melbourne. You remember Xavier, Lara, Emmanuella, Carlos and Juan don’t you?
Please let me know what you think about my idea. I will need to book a table at the restaurant as it gets quite busy. The bar also requires making a reservation but the night club is massive so there is no need to make a booking.
See you soon,
