Dear Peter,

How are you? I haven’t seen you for a long time! How’s life in America. I want to tell you about my life here at Abu Dhabi Men’s College.

I am studying Math, English, Construction Engineering and Computer Studies; my teachers are very nice, especially Mr. Tom. He teaches us English, this is my favorite subject. There is a noisy boy in our class, he’s always speaking Arabic and joking, so Mr. Tom puts his PDA down.

Mr. Percy, our Engineering is very lazy; he only sets us tests in class or tells us to go on the internet and do online exercises there.

Mr. Mike teaches us Math. He is always joking with us; we like him very much, but we don’t get much work done!

I’ve got two friends, Saeed and Ibrahim. They are in my class, Saeed wants to be a civil engineer and Ibrahim wants to work in his father’s company. In our free time we go sailing and smoke shisha in the evening.

In the summer I’m planning to come to the States to see you. Would this be OK? Write and let me know?

At the moment I’m taking my final exams, I have to study hard, but it will soon be over, thank God!

Love from

Bandar

Dear Peter,

How are you? I’m writing to tell you about a fantastic city called Trakia; it’s in the south west of Turkey.

The city has a beautiful market in the centre, which sells hand-made carpets and hats. There are many restaurants selling good local food and wine, which comes from fields around the city.

It’s a very old city and no cars are allowed in the centre of the city, so you have to either walk or go by horse and cart.

I like this city because it’s very old and has many beautiful buildings; also, the views from the city walls are beautiful because the city is so high up on a hill.

I’ve only visited the city once but I will definitely go again on my next holiday. I hope you’ll be able to come too!

Give my regards to your family.

All the best,

Tom
