You have received the following email from your English penfriend:
|I'm really pleased you're planning to come to England to study. Let me know what type of course you're interested in and I'll ring some colleges for details. The more information you can give me the better!|
Write your email/letter of reply to your penfriend (around 140-190 words).

I guess the best place to stay is in a house with a host family, but if you've got a better idea, let me know. I think I'll stay for two months, the problem is that I'm not sure if I can afford all the spends! WW
Ok, I've got to go now, so... see you soon!
Your email/letter has enough information (about the course, location, etc) for your friend to be able to help you. The informal register (which you achieve through the use of contracted forms, such as 'It'd', exclamation marks and a nice, chatty style) is just right for this type of email/letter. Your control of language is generally very good, with only a couple of minor errors. Good work!
