Exercise 1: I went to the concert last night with my friends.
Thank you very much for your letter which arrived a few days ago. It was lovely to hear from you. I am sorry, I haven’t written for you such a long time because I studied hard to pass the final exam. However, I had a great weekend more than every when I went to live concerts last night with my friends. Now, I am writing to tell you how the wonderful concert is.
It is the beautiful concert I have ever taken part in with many people and the miracle of sound of piano. As you know, my pianist is Yiruma and in last concert I couldn’t believe that he appeared in my eyes and gave me a big hug after his performance. I also listen a soothing music which is played by him and other professional musicians. Only when I heard his song from the stage I feel anythings around me seem to disappear and I can fly with many stars on the sky to forget all my fears which I suffered before. That is amazing.
Let’s come back to my live concert. It is so cool and until now I can’t forget my feeling about it. Do you often to go live concerts? What kind of music do you like listening to? Who is your favorite singer?
I am glad if you tell me about it in the next letter.

Thank you very much for your letter which arrived a few days ago. It was lovely to hear from you.
I think the restaurant which you told me in the letter is very interesting. I also like to eat out and I usually go to a restaurant for dinner with my family twice a month. Our favorite restaurant is a traditional restaurant in Hang Bong street. It is not big but it is always busy. There are only a few tables in the restaurant and on each table is a vase with lovely flowers. There are plants in the room corners. I usually order the traditional dishes and eat them with rice. For example, fish cooked with sauce, spring roll,…and vegetable and so on. The food is delicious so we enjoy it very much. The service is also quick and friendly . My family always have pleasant evening at our favorite restaurant.
Shall we go there when you come to visit my family next time?
See you next time.
Exercise 3: Tell me about a teacher from your past.
Thank you for our class’ photo you sent me a few days ago. I was so glad to write for you and tell you about my feeling after I receive it.
That photograph made me remember my old teacher who taught us high school. She is slim with along hair and blue eyes. Do you remember her? Our English teacher, her name is Sara. I can’t forget that days when she played game with us in each class and we sang Animal songs together. I also remember that She was very sad when our class didn’t do homework and we felt so guilty with her. Then we studied English hard to fix our mistakes and she was so happy. But now she doesn’t still teach English in Vietnam. Ha, our classmates said she came back England with her husband. I hope she would come to Vietnam, I will meet her because I miss her so much. What about you? What do you think about her? Have you ever had the old teacher who made you unforgettable?

Broadly speaking, the weather in Vietnam is featured by two monsoon seasons the southwest monsoon from April to September and the northeast monsoon from October to late March or early April. Moreover, the northeast monsoon effects bring lower temperatures to my city, Hanoi and all days in Hanoi is in rain. In fact, I am fed up with rainy day because I can’t go out to shopping with my friend. Only thing I can do in these days is writing letter for you and tell you about the terrible weather here.

You can’t believe that last week I had a wonderful visit to Vincom tower where I saw Titanic in 3D. It was such an interesting experience that I could see that film in 3D. Everything seemed to real. I was also moved by the content of the film. It is an epic romantic disaster film. It is fictionalized based on the account of the sinking of the Titanic. Leonardo Dicaprio and Kate Winslet stars in this film as members of different social classes who fall in love abroad the ship during its ill – fated maiden voyage.

I think the first you had better avoid foods high in fats like cookies, fries,.. You also try to limit amount of animal protein consume. I really little eat meat. I eat a lot of vegetables, fresh fruit which are full of fiber and vitamin and drink enough water daily.
The second effective measure is to do exercise frequently. You can walk or jog in the morning or afternoon everyday. Moreover, playing sports is also very good for health, especially it is very efficient to lose weight. In addition, you can join some clubs for examples as dance sport or aerobic clubs. If you want to have a fit and healthy body, you should have regular daily routine. I think losing weight will be difficult if you use suitable measures. I hope that these experience are helpful for you.

That was a really interesting trip. Hue is known for its beautiful imperial architecture and wonderful natural beauty, especially the length of history of Nguyen dynasty. I think that Hue is the only city in Vietnam that still has restored historic beauties with of walls, places, and royal tombs. Everything in Hue city make me impressed and surprised. Perfume rives is very poetic and peaceful. It always make me feel comfortable and relaxing. In this trip, my father and I were on a boat in this river to listen to hue songs every night. The melody of Hue songs is always very special. I love Hue songs very much.!The trips lasted 2 days. In the first day, we went to visit Tu Duc tombs. It is a large and bulky structure. We spent all day to discover this historical Structure. There are a lot of famous tomb in Hue but because os limited time we only visited Tu Duc tombs. The following day, we came to Thien Mu pagoda. This pagoda was built in the 14th century and is placed on Ha Khe hillock area near the perfume river. It is also known as Linh Mu pagoda. This is one of the most beautiful and acient architectural structures for reverence in Hue. After that, we went around the city by cyclo and enjoined some special food of hue.

Thanks for your letter. I’m glad to know that you and your family are always healthy and happy. Now I feel healthier and more comfortable, too. I think that is the result of doing exercise frequently. These days, I usually jog around the park near my house every afternoon. Most of time, I work in the office. It will be not good to sit a fixed place. Thus I determined to do exercise more frequently to keep the body healthy and the sport which choose is jogging.
I enjoy jogging a lot because jogging helps me to be fitter and more enduring. I think jogging gives us a lot of benefits not only for body but for mind. It is the most efficient way of achieving fitness through exercise and burns more calories because it is a high impact exercise. Jogging is also very good for your heart, improves the muscle tone and strength, and relieves stress, beside also deal with heart disease.

Exercise 16: Writing a letter about family rules to a teenager staying with a homestay family
I’m writing to talk about my family rules. It’s an interesting topic, isn’t it? It may be obvious that every family has its own rules. Mine has a few, apart from our traditional rules, especially for this school year as I’m in the final year.
First. I’m not allowed to watch TV, nearly any, except when there is a good or interesting movie or when I have finished all my homework and exercises. And my parents never let me stay up so much late at night.
Next, my parents don’t permit me to go out with friends without necessary reason; for example, birthdays or funerals.
Besides, I have to take a balanced diet to keep fit for my coming exam. And one more thing I have to keep up is talking on the phone, that is I have to set a limit to my using of the phone.
Do you think I have a lot of rules to abide? Or I have no rights or freedom to do what I want or like?
Tell me about your family rules? It’s much fun t0 hear about them.
Stop now and don’t forget to give my regards to your family members.
Tôi đang viết để nói về các quy tắc gia đình tôi. Đó là một chủ đề thú vị, phải không? Rõ ràng là mỗi gia đình đều có những quy tắc riêng. Gia đình tôi có một vài, ngoài các quy tắc truyền thống của chúng tôi, đặc biệt là trong năm học khi tôi đang ở năm cuối.
Đầu tiên. Tôi không được phép xem TV, gần như không, ngoại trừ khi có một bộ phim hay hoặc thú vị hoặc khi tôi đã hoàn thành tất cả các bài tập về nhà. Và cha mẹ tôi không bao giờ cho phép tôi thức quá muộn vào ban đêm.
Tiếp theo cha mẹ tôi không cho phép tôi đi chơi với bạn bè mà không có lý do cần thiết ví dụ như sinh nhật hay lễ tang.
Ngoài ra, tôi phải có một chế độ ăn uống cân bằng lo giữ cho kỳ thi sắp tới của tôi. Và một điều nữa tôi phải theo kịp là nói chuyện trên điện thoại, đó là 1 phải thiết lập một giới hạn cho việc sử dụng của tôi bằng điện thoại.
Bạn có nghĩ rằng tôi có rất nhiều quy tắc để tuân thủ? Hoặc tôi không có quyền hoặc tự do làm những gì tôi muốn hoặc thích?
Nói cho tôi biết về gia quy của gia đình của bạn? Chắc sẽ có nhiều niềm vui để nghe về họ.
Dừng lại ngay bây giờ và gửi lời chào của tôi đến gia đình bạn.
Lời chúc tốt nhất,
