Dear Sue,

    Thanks for your letter. I’m so happy you’re coming to Poland and I’m so sorry I won’t meet you at the airport in Warsaw. My stepmother’s kids are staying with us this week and I have to take care of them. Can you believe it? Sounds awful but on the other hand if I don’t keep an eye on them I might not find a single thing in my room! They are incredible – you never know what they’re up to. .................................................................................................................................................................................. .................................................................................................................................................................................. .................................................................................................................................................................................. ..................................................................................................................................................................................

    So I’m really looking forward to seeing you. Please let me know when you arrive and we’ll get in touch.

    Best wishes,

    Agnieszka




Imagine that a foreign student you met on holidays is going to come to Poland and stay with you and your family for two weeks. Write a letter (150-170 words) to him/her in which you describe your family situation and habits so that he/she knows what to expect. Make sure that both the layout and the language of your letter are suitable.
