You have 20 min to do this task.
You have received a letter from your English-speaking Den-friend Alice who writes:
... I have to think about my pocket money all the time. My parents try to make me earn it by doing the housework. They try to make me save up and then buy something useful. But I need pocket money for the cinema and ice-cream and other treats like that. Do you have to 'earn' your pocket money in any way or do your parents just give it to you? What do you spend your pocket money on? What do your parents think of the way you spend it?
Last weekend my friends and I went on a picnic to the countryside...
Write a letter to Alice.
In your letter
answer her questions
ask 3 questions about her picnic to the countryside.
Write 100-140 words.
Remember the rules of letter writing.
Thanks Alice for the letter. Sorry I couldn’t write as I was busy with my exams.
I’m glad you went with your friends and enjoyed.
Well, my parents just give me the pocket money, so I don’t have to earn it. I spend my pocket money on music CDs and some ice-cream. My parents think it’s okay.
Do you like the way you have to earn your pocket money? Do your friends also have to earn their pocket money? What did you do with your friends during picnic in the countryside?
Excuse me, I have to go now with my mother to assist her in grocery shopping.
Write back soon.
