I was very happy to hear from you so soon. The pictures that you included from Florida made me jealous! Here, it has been like winter all the month of May.
As you may have noticed from my address, I have big news for you! On May 28th, I joined the Welder's Union and within three days they assigned me to a project in Perth, Alberta. The address above is where I now live. Things certainly change fast! So far, I like the job. I have heard rumours that we may be sent to the Yukon to work on contract. While I am not thrilled about the climate there, I would make much more money.
The only other item of news lately is that my sister, Linda, is getting married this summer. You will be receiving a wedding invitation. She hasn't even made her mind up whether to send an invitation to you by post or by person.
Please be prepared to attend the wedding ceremony which will become colorful with your presence.
Exercise : I
NOTE : Please use unlined, white paper for this exercise. It may be helpful to place a lined sheet of paper beneath the unlined sheet so that you can write straight lines. Your instructor will correct your work and record your mark. If possible, these letters should be real letters sent to real people. Sending and receiving letters can be a great experience. Some friends have maintained a correspondence for twenty years and more without ever having seen the other person face to face in all that time. It is alright, however, to use your imagination for this letter. The information given does not have to be true, and the letter does not need to be sent to anyone.
1. Write a letter to a friend or relative in which you up-date him/her on the events in your life over the past three months. Be sure to follow the guidelines, format, and suggestions for writing friendly letters. Remember that all spelling, grammar, and all the other conventions of Standard English usage apply, so always proofread your work.
2. Write a letter to a friend who has recently moved to another city. Again, be sure to follow the guidelines, format, and suggestions for writing friendly letters.
