You have received a letter from your English-speaking pen friend Jackie, who writes:
| ... Have you ever been on holiday with your friends? I want to, but my parents won't let me. They think I'm not old enough. What do you think? Do you think I should try to persuade them, or just accept their decision? What would you do? Please give me your advice! |
I can't wait to hear from you!
Lots of love,
Write a letter to Jackie. In your letter:
December 7th, 2014
Thank you very much for your letter. It was a pleasant surprise.
I am sorry to hear that your parents don’t allow you to go on vacation with your friends.
As a matter of fact, my father never allows me to go on holidays with my friends. He tells me that I am very young, etc. I think that you can try to persuade them but I am not sure that you will be successful. As for me, I’ve tried to do it a lot of times but it’s been in vain.
As far as I understand, they will let me do it when I finish school. I think that we can only wait for that day when our parents will leave us alone.
How old was your elder brother when your parents started letting him go on vacation? Do you want to go far? How long are you going to be away from home?
I gotta go now.
I am looking forward to seeing you.
Stay in touch,
