What about details of the trip? I've just fixed my departure time. It will be June the 7th, at 8 am. As far as I know the flight lasts four hours so I should turn up at Heathrow near midday. I hope we will meet soon in London. Keep smiling!
PS: Give my love to the whole family, especially to Richard. Tell him not to worry. I'll try to help him with that project. Gd
This is a lovely letter Justyna! You give your penfriend a clear idea of how you're planning to spend your time in the UK and when you're planning to arrive. The letter is very well organised with each paragraph dealing with a specific topic and you've also made good use of linking words and tenses to create some complex sentences. The tone of the letter is just right with friendly questions and good use of contractions. All in all a very good attempt!
