Check out students' answers to Flo-Joe's FCE Writing tasks with a teacher's feedback
You have received the following letter from your English-speaking friend.
|.............Thanks for inviting me to stay with you when I visit your country next month. I'm not sure how to get to your apartment from the airport. Could you write back giving me some basic instructions? What would be the best method of transport for me? I'd prefer one that isn't too expensive! Just one other thing - what will the weather be like when I get there? (Just so I'll know what clothes to pack!) .........|
Write your informal letter of reply to your friend (around 140-190 words).
Read Aysen's answer to this question below. Try correcting the piece of writing yourself first: use the marking codes to think about what might be wrong (or what's good) about the piece of work. Then when you're ready, click the green buttons in the text for our feedback.
|Hie S Jenny,
And finally the money problem PE
As I said before I am looking forward to see WF you.
This is a nice, friendly informal letter, Aysen, which would give some information to answer your friend's questions.
For the makeover I have concentrated on the following points:
1. Spelling and punctuation. Remember to check your spelling very carefully during the exam and to make sure that you are writing proper sentences.
2. Vocabulary and expression. I have suggested some alternatives for you to consider.
Good luck for the exam!
