Hi Sarah,

Thanks for the email. It’s good to make new friends.

What do you do in your free-time? Do you like going out? I really like going to concerts. I love music and I listen to new bands a lot. My favourite children is Oliver Sykes from the band Bring Me The Horizon. He’s amazing. Who is your favourite singer? What kind of music do you like? What do you think of metal? I love it. What about you? I don’t like pop music very much. I can’t stand singers like Justin Bieber and Myley Cyrus. I think they’re terrible… well, I hope they aren’t your favourites!

Sometimes my friends and I go to a disco. Discos are OK but I prefer concerts.

Write soon and tell me about your likes and dislikes.

Dave: Do you like sports?

Amelia: Well, I like some.

Dave: What kind of sports do you like?

Amelia: I like sports that I can do alone. I like walking and running. I like swimming a lot too. I don’t like football very much and I hate Formula 1 – it’s awful.

Dave: Who’s your favourite sports person?

Amelia: I don’t know. I guess I like Andy Murray. He’s awesome.

Dave: What do you think about Cristiano Ronaldo?

Amelia: I can’t stand him. He’s terrible. I don’t like footballers with all their tattoos.

Dave: He doesn’t have any tattoos.

Amelia: Well, that’s good but I prefer people who love their sport but don’t do it for the money. People like Alex Honnold. He’s a climber. He’s brilliant and a nice person too, I think.

On Saturday, I was bored. I phoned my friend. We chatted for a while and then we agreed to meet her house. We planned to play tennis but it started to rain so we decided to watch a DVD. Jackie’s little sister was there. She would to play with us but we said “no”. She cried and Jackie’s mum asked us to look after her. So, we all watched a film that Jackie’s sister liked. It was terrible!

I first became interested in skateboarding at the age of eight. Then, when I was about ten or eleven, a new skatepark opened in our town. I went every day and got better and better. Last year, there was a competition and I won the under-18 skateboarding prize. I was really happy. A few months ago, I heard about a summer skateboarding camp. It starts today, I packed my clothes yet and sent messages to my friends. I went to bed late last night but it’s 6 a.m. now and I’m eating breakfast. The coach for the camp leaves at 11 o’clock but I can’t sleep.

Hi Chris,

How are you? We had a sports day at our school yesterday. It was quite good. I played table tennis and did some kung fu. Then I had a rest and watched the running competition. After that, some friends and I stayed at school and helped to clear up. The teachers gave us some cans of drink so we took them to the park and drank them there. I went home quite early because I had a lot of work to do last night. We had a Maths test today and we’ve got exams all this week. I must do some more work. Hope all is well.

Jan: Oh, it’s lovely. I cried when I saw it.

Tim: Why? Is it sad?

Jan: Very. I saw it last weekend. I went to the cinema with Amelia. She hated it. She wanted to leave before the end.

Tim: I can believe that. I remember when I was at her house a few weeks ago. We decided to watch a DVD. When I looked at her collection of films, they were all things most people like at the age of twelve! In the end, we watched The Lion King!

Mum: What about your English book?

Hi Cooleen,

I’m sorry, I didn’t phone you last night, I was very tired. I didn’t do anything. Did you have a nice time with Jerry? What did you do? Where did you go? Did I tell you about the kayaking trip? Mrs Bryce told us about it on Friday when you were at home, sick. We didn’t get any information about how much it costs or when we have to be at school. I don’t think Mrs Bryce knows yet but I’m really exited about it.

See you tomorrow.
